View Full Version : Pre Heresy Death Guard (my first blog)

06-01-2008, 11:21
Hello fello Warseers,
Well, seeing as it is a new year, I thought, why not start a blog. So here I am starting a blog. A blog for my Pre Heresy Death Guard!

This army will be based around the 7th Co., led by Nathaniel Garro, and is supposed to be around the beginning of the Horus Heresy, around when Horus goes and nearly gets killed on Davin.

They will mostly be in Mk4 armour from FW. I was thinking of painting the armour Astrinomicron (spelling?) Grey with Codex Grey washes and white highlights. For the Green I was going to do Orkhide Shade up to Snot green+ white. The eyes will be black, and any bionics or eyes for Sergeants, Veterans ect. will be orange.

Here is the list as it stands:
Commander Garro
Command Squad (5 man)
3x Tactical Squad (10 man each)
2x Terminator Squad (5 man each)
Assault squad (5 man)
Devastator Squad (5 man)

This list might change.

I have no idea how to make Pre-Heresy Terminators (and i have to make 10 of them) so please give me ideas.

Pics will follow. Any ideas welcome, thanks.

PS. This is my first Blog so bare with me.

Didn't garro lead the 4th company?

Also for the termies the horus heresy collected visions might give you some inspiration for your termies

Sounds like a pretty good idea to me.
Concerning your terminator problem, click on this link:
Either look about the threads or ask for some help and you should get a reply

Didn't Garro lead the 4th company?
Nope Garro lead 7th, Ullis Temeter lead 4th

Will be watchin this thread carefully, good luck on it :D

I've developed a paint scheme and am testing it out. These guys are still a bit PIP:

And a GS banner (detail)

C+C welcome!

That banner kicks ****, fantasic idea and the execution is awesome. The pole could've been a bit thicker, and there could've been more detail on the banner, but they're minor problems.

Well done sir :D

yes i agree with sheep the banner pole should be thicker and it could be the light but that dearth guard marine in the second picture looks more grey than white could just be me though.

Yeah, They're pretty bad images.

Sorry I haven't updated in a while, its just my family and I are changing rooms and all my paints and models are packed away in boxes somewhere. I will try get them out as soon as I can, but we still have to paint up my room, so might be a while.

If your interrested Bell of Lost Souls web site has Pre-Heresy icons for marines and vehicles that you can print on to decal paper. I hope this link works.
