Hello. I'm Gagoc and this is my thread for my PH Astartes.
Unlike most I couldn't really decide on which Legion I wanted to do, so I decided to do something pretty stupid, if not crazy, and have an army of Loyalists from the fallen Legions.

I should warn you I can be very slow and sporadic with my models, especially when it comes to painting. So, though I've been doing this for better part of a decade, my army isn't that big.

As an intro here's my completed Death Guard contingent. Why these guys? Scroll down and find out.





Since New Year's Day I've been mainly working to finish off stuff I'd left undone. Starting with some Terminators.

My DG Termi Lib:


Been working on this guy for a while. Started him long before the Betrayal book.
Recently I finally stuck him together, added the leather tassels under his shoulder pads, and stuck him to a base.







A squad of DG Termi's:

If you notice, the blades on the power weapons are scythe blades. I chopped of the CSM axe heads and replaced them with plastic scythes.
And there's two OOP Termi models.

With the Sergeant and one Termi nearly done:

The sgt. actually has a converted Manreaper from the Typhus model.

And some new conversions that are WIP.....
Deathshroud:










These are basically FW DG Plague Terminators on plastic SM/CSM legs, with GK arms and halberds, plus an old school Hand Flamer in place of the GK Strom Bolter. I've also converted the GK halberd blades and attached Scythe blades.
After de-Nrglifying them, I found the backs of the FW Termi torsos rather plain, so inspired by the FW Deathshroud I attached a converted 2nd Ed. SM backpack.

Hope you enjoy them!

Thanks Will, Adenn.

I've not been idle with these. So here's an update:

The shoulder pads and Death Guard insignia are done on the DG Terminator squad.

Sorry for only linking the pics, but with the sites policy on 3rd-party bits I won't be able to post any pics until these are base-coated.

The Deathshroud are in a similar point of completeness. Though I do have to do some additional greenstuff work around the Scythe blades.

These two Deathshroud have got Melta-bombs.

As with the basic DG Terminators I have to be careful what I can actually post, therefore the links.


But this newly built model doesn't have the same problem.

And so on to a new update. Here's some new-ish Terminator's can you guess their Legion? And the first two answers don't count!









I've done these guys so that they can be either one whole squad or two seperate squads. And they are going into an Allies list fro my Betrayal army, but based off the Blood Angel 'Dex.

Though he's not 'Legal' in the codex or Betrayal list, I have pressed on with my Legion captain conversion of an FW model.

I kinda +SCRAPSHUNTERRORABORT+ed-up his assembly as his cloak is supposed to go beneath his Pauldrons, but I am using 3rd-party ones so his cloak might not have fit beneath them.

And in case you haven't worked out what Legion they are yet, he's a really big clue:

I know some of the heads are from the Warriors of Chaos set but where are the other ones from? I think one of them is a Bretonnian head.
“People," Geralt turned his head, "like to invent monsters and monstrosities. Then they seem less monstrous themselves. When they get blind-drunk, cheat, steal, beat their wives, starve an old woman, when they kill a trapped fox with an axe or riddle the last existing unicorn with arrows, they like to think that the Bane entering cottages at daybreak is more monstrous than they are. They feel better then. They find it easier to live.”

Some of them are actually the previous version of plastic Chaos Warriors.
There used to be ones with a similar stance to Orcs with their heads sticking forwards from the shoulders.

I think I remember seeing one like that a while ago.

Here's a clue to what I am currently working on:



Now here's the related update:
A squad of Lunar Wolf Terminators to accompany the Captain, still WIP.
http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a118/Gag...rmies_WIP1a.jpg



Before you say anything, yes I do know that Assault Cannons were not PH and aren't in the Betrayal ruleset but it is a nice sculpt and I'm currently trying to get hold of a Reaper Autocannon for conversion.

Once these are finished my next bit is...
More Terminators. A TS Termie Librarian and 5-man squad, plus a 5-man squad of FW Cataphractii.
You're probably thinking "That is a lot of Terminators for an army." And I would reply "Not for a Pre-Heresy army!"
