1500pt Battle Report (Nurgle vs Khorne) — July 28, 2010

1500pt Battle Report (Nurgle vs Khorne)

Well here is my first ever battle report.  I have wanted to do a battle report for many years and it is nice to finally get something underway.  Even though all of the minis aren’t painted it is still good to get something started.  I was also able to guilt Gerry into playing with a fully painted army next time.  🙂

We started by setting up the terrain and then selecting a mission from the Battle Missions book.  We selected the Chaos Space Marine mission Pillage.  Basically the mission is that at the end of your opponents shooting phase you collect salvage points for each unit in contact with an objective.    We chose table quarters and then put down the 4 objectives.

Scabeiathrax Painted — July 24, 2010

Scabeiathrax Painted

Well it took a few weeks but I finished Scabeiathrax.  I love the small details on the model: the maggots, the nurgling hand in the intestines, and the nurgling sitting on the base grabbing the intestines.  I didn’t use the Devlan Mud and he turned out a bit greener than the rest of my army which isn’t so grand but the paint job does look a lot cleaner.

As a final detail I put white (dead) grass around his torso and green grass on the edges of the base.  I tried to show that he was sucking the life out of the ground around him but there just isn’t enough contrast between the two colors of grass.  I should have used black grass instead of the white grass.

14,000 Apocalypse Game — July 8, 2010

14,000 Apocalypse Game

I am finally getting around to posting pictures from last weekends apocalypse game.

The teams were:
Crimson Fists & Ultramarines VS Chaos Daemons (me) and Tau.

My list was:

  • Scabeiathrax
  • Epidemius
  • Great Unclean One
  • Daemon Prince
  • Daemon Prince (wings)
  • ~65 plaguebearers
  • 6 nurglings

Some last minute point changes allowed me to borrow some super heavies from a friend

  • Brass Scorpion
  • Brass Scorpion
  • Baneblade
  • Plaguereaper (the nurgle baneblade variant).

In the end the Tau and Daemons were able to hold on to one objective each, and the space marine team was able to grab an objective last turn with some speedy scouts.
