I've always liked Mortarion, especially his awesome story in Index Astartes. I also like the Legion list in FW's Horus Heresy : Betrayal. So I decided to make a pre-heresy Death Guard army.

Not wanting to do things by halves, I decided to make it out of fricking old models. Cos y'know, ye olde 31st millenium and all.

So after digging around in some boxes and waking up my wife, I've got the start of a force. There's even more somewhere, I believe, though it'll require some Indiana Jones-ing to excavate them.

Two Legion Terminator squads. As I'm going to use the Pride of the Legion rite of war, these are my compulsory troops choices filled. They'll get transplanted to some new 40mm bases.

Old school heavy flamers. So vintage!

A tactical marine, a Sarge with a power axe, and a Techmarine (who might become a Rapier crewman)

Legion Praetor in terminator armour. I've aleady started to dress up his base. The bases are going to be made to look like they're storming a muddy trench system, this guy is meant to have just torn through a fence.

In addition to this army I've got an IG force, a homebrew Marine chapter and more to work on. Phew!

I got a few of those myself, great minis! I actually have the exact same plan, and I got the RT marines to prove ut. Alas it`s daemons per now but I will treat myself to Betrayal this summer I think.

Looking forward to the next installment! Do you have any RT vehicles that will be included in this force?

Looks nice. I myself am starting Heresy Era Death Guard - are yours Traitors or Loyalists? :)

Fantastic: original edition space hulk terminators, unless I'm very much mistaken? Also I see you have the Captain from the original metal terminators boxed set. I can't wait to see some paint on these classic miniatures!

Thanks man, I think I've been remiss in not commenting on your daemons, I know I've looked at them and they're great! As to vehicles, I picked Death Guard so I could concentrate on the infantry. I do have a particularly cool RT vehicle somewhere, if only I could find it...

Wow, much love for the Death Guard. My guys are meant to be loyalists, I was thinking of them being set well before the Heresy.

This man knows his stuff!

I was hoping to have more done by now, but real life yada yada yada. Hereís my Praetor basically done, just have to tidy up the base rim.

So this update is a bit more interesting, Iíve included a WIP shot of my Officer of the Fleet for my IG. Heís meant to be a downed pilot in contact with fleet elements. Here he is pointing excitedly at the sight of his comrades coming to help.

You must be scouring Ebay pretty intensively to find all these OOP Marines.
