40K 8th Ed Army: Deathguard: Chaos cultists: CP Models Sci-fi Trenchers.

16 Jun

So on goes my quest to get my 8th Edition 40K army finished, and this time it’s my first unit of deathguard chaos cultists. These figures (of which so far consist of 12 models) come from CP Models in their Sci-fi Trench warfare range, and are a mix of both Brits & Germans.

You can find them here yourself if you want to peruse TRENCH WARFARE: CP MODELS

My thinking was, these lot once were fighting a prolonged war against each other, then with the influence of chaos to their world, my deathguard lot came along and showed them another way, and thus they became indoctrinated into following Nurgle through disease, suffering and poison gas.

You’ll notice that the duplicated German with the chainsword was a simple conversion using a chaos marine part, just to change it up a bit to signify the leader.

I kept the scheme in the same tones as my plague marine unit and tank, so they’d fit the aesthetic.

I do have five additional models to add, but these are made up from Wargames Factory scifi germans and gripping beast? (I think) saracens. They fit the look pretty close, and add some additional bodies to the fight. (I will post when they are done)

Your going to find that my cultists are quite an eclectic bunch. My other units are made up from a random mix of masked nutters, and robed zealots from a variety of companies. These lot I’d had for ages, but never put them to any use.

Anyway, let me know what you think, and I’ll be back later with my possible temporary poxwalker shamblers (possibly that is, but I’ll show them anyway!)

Crowdfunding Preview: Achtung! Cthulhu Skirmish game KS from Spartan Games!

22 Dec

For those who aren’t familiar, Achtung! Cthulhu is  the WW2 era combined with the mythos of HP Lovecraft and his contemparies. Up till now it’s been focused on the RPG side of things, but news is 2014 will see the release of the skirmish version of the popular setting.

I am a big fan of anything mythos, but not so keen on WW2 stuff, but this might change my mind about that. What is clear, is that there are a few great looking mini’s there and no doubt there will be some great opportunities to use some other companies 28mm WW2/WeirdW2/Cthulhu stuff to add more options to the mix! Hey, there’s probably loads of scifi and fantasy stuff that’d be good too, at this rate I’ll be a convert to the elder gods!

check out the Ronald Macdonalds in the Chapman Brothers instalation, why so many clowns…

I can imagine tabletop scenes not unlike the ones made by the renown art duo, the Chapman brothers, whose massive dioramas of WW2 carnage and evil, wouldn’t seem too out of place for the premise of the game, just with added tentacles and gribblies for that extra dimension of “urgh”! I fear that the 28mm wargamer in me is going to resurface if things keep up like this!

This could be a hit for 2014, watch this space. The stars may be right.
