Welcome to our latest blog relaying the good times, the bad times and the lessons we learn along the way.
For those of you new to our life, let me fill you in on the back ground.
My name is Daniel and I am a wargamer. I've been painting and playing for circa 20 years now having started in the late 80s when my father introduced me to the world of wargaming and painting. I've collected far too many armies and painted way too many soldiers, but my collection is getting to the stage now where it meets my approval and I am looking to finish the gaps in my collection over the next few years.
My good lady is called Rebecka... and she is... well... not a wargamer yet. BUT she's a bloody good painter considering the fact that she only started doing this 6 months ago or so.
Having started and failed really on a High elf and Dwarf project back in the summer, mainly due to the fact that Rebecka returned to her native Sweden for 4 months, now finally having her back here with me for good we've decided to start a new story.
We were both invited by our local GW store to attend a Doubles tournement in April, but having no 40k army of her own we decided to start building a themed doubles army, certainly not ready for this year, but hopefully in the future. Having trawled over codexes and websites, themes and stories, we settled on a tale of Nurgle, one side of the force focusing on Nurgle Marines, Death Guard and one of my favourite characters of the 40k Universe, Typhus (Typhon) and she would pursue an army of Daemons, but, not using the Nurgle Daemon models but using representation of a Zombie Plague bought on by Typhons plague.
So... in short...
My name is Daniel and I am a wargamer - Death Guard CSM.
Cherri (rebecka) - Chaos Daemons using Zombie representations.
We have decided to use Warmachine bases for all the army as we like the rolled corners and the opportunity to make special looking bases.
And the theme for the bases will be a swamp look, with sand, lychen, foliage, branches, and pools of glossy water effect over a muddy green colour.
I don't really suppose we have an army list we are aiming towards.
Id like a Daemon Prince, Typhon, some possessed and chosen, and obviously plague marines.
Rebecka is aiming towards a GUO (using the Forgeworld Daemon Prince model, whom she lovingly calls Big Blobby Guy) Epidemius, using a preacher on a lectern, Zombies and as plague bearers, and daemon princes ,using the renegade ogryns covered in gas masks etc.
More updates to come...
