Hi all, first post!
I have been collecting Warhammer 40,000 for over six years now and I [I Swear Too Much] this great forum on Google....
I had first encountered the Death Korps wayyy back in 2001 when the Armageddon campaign was out. I was inspired by the color scheme and the history printed in a issue of white dwarf ages ago... from that moment I was hooked and have always preferred them over any other guardsman regiment.
Sadly these were painted really as they were one of my first armies, but I have come along a long way since those days.
With the release of the new Imperial Armour book I [I Swear Too Much] it was a great time to redo my old dkok army, the 265th Siege Regiment.
So I purchased a Death Korp model off my mate as a test model:


So far about 5 hours on the model, and he is nearly done, just need touching up on places like the metal etc.
It was painted with the new foundation paints and I must say they make life alot more easy when it comes to painting.
Plus I have a grenadier squad and a grenadier centaur on its way as I speak
Also just to let you know the logo and numbers are all [I Swear Too Much]
C & C always welcome

I really like this Death Korps trooper, very dark, very grim. Just the way it should be. He reminds me ever so slightly of the German SS officers with their black greatcoats.

I also like the red lenses... it has never occurred to me that they could be anything else than black but now that I see it I like it! They make a nice addition of colour since maybe the figure is a bit too black/dark, perhaps the pants could be of another colour? And the boots?

And quite impressive [I Swear Too Much] too! Maybe you could show a better picture of the numbers though?

I'm looking [I Swear Too Much] to resting my eyes on the grenadiers, so be sure keep em' coming!

ghehehe yeah relly reminds of a German Soldier
because of the colors but i think mostly because of the ribbon thing on his arm in the colors White/Red/black


but i like the look and you managed to highlight the dark colors and as i think it cant be dark enough i gotta say great work
i wish i could paint like that ^^

thanks guys!
heres a really bad pic of the numbers:

stupid flash! hehe perhaps I could get another one later with better lighting...
I also will be changing the base to the mud guide you made Dominus (its genius!) soon and adding some razor wire as no death korp would be perfect without em ;)

OK! update time!
I have recently been swamped in school work (essays, exams, etc) but my order arrived last week and I somehow managed to cram it in.
So now I present grenadier centaur!:


Without armoured top:

The sand bags were all made from greenstuff (duh) and that white stuff isn't snow... its polyfiller (I use it for mud) and i decided after reading the fluff in imperial armour 5 I [I Swear Too Much] that it would get VERY dirty...
did someone say mud?:

well all thats left is that skull I guess
C & C always welcome and im now off to paint the beasty!
more soon...

Nice work, and the sandbags look terrific (they are even the same color as some of the modern ones).

More progress soon, Ive purchased that lovely new DKoK Command HQ, and you may see a part of the grenadier centaur in the background (thats getting some paint too ;) )but I have just turned 16 (although I may have mis put my birth year as 1990) so time to party! :toast:

Recently I have been lacking updates an well the reason is... well im a lazy bugger and quite frankly, working with resin takes me ages... plus paints stocks are running dangerously low, sob :sad:
what the hell am I talking about? why my friends, the army has just got reinforcements!!!
A lovely new command HQ squad:



I absolutely love these models and purchased them afew day after they were released but [I Swear Too Much] must have had its peak season as it took almost over a month to bloody arrive in my land down under (erm New Zealand :(
Troops and stuff:


note: the meaty grenade launcher barrel:

These blokes are now getting the spray treatment (undercoat) and will be hitting the painting tables over the next few days.
till the next update cheers! :toast:

@ cortex, the white stuff is poly filler (or perma fill) I use a tooth pick and smush it around, and you can sorta see a big pot behind my command HQ squad. Oh and the commander is one piece ^_^
thanks for the comments much appreciated
