I honestly can't believe I'm doing this. Part of me feels dirty and debased while the other part listens to the laughter of Dark Gods and is pleased. I'm a priest of the Imperium for the Emperor's sake! Oh well. As the title suggests, the Death Guard Company "Aechops" is going to be logged here. Actually, the full designation would be Death Guard 6th Great Company, 2nd Battalion, 3rd Company but they're known as "Aechops". Why? Because they deserve it !
One would think this forum is about to be even more popular due to the Betrayal at Calth set. Well, like all the other hipsters, I've been at this for a bit now. They hooked me years ago when the MkIII armour came out and then they put up how to paint the Death Guard. Talk about shooting fish in a barrel! Truth be told, I am ordering the BaC box because I'm too poor to buy the MkIII armour I love so much. This brings me to a question I'm hoping someone could help me out with:
There are thirty legionaries in the BaC. Should I make one large Legion Tactical Squad out of twenty of them and have a Legion Veteran Tactical Squad left over or...I don't know? This is where I need the help. My original army lists have the Legion Tactical Squads at twenty with an added Apothecary to make the number twenty-one (get it? Divisible by 7!). My plans kind of fell through this year but now a ray of light has come through the clouds in the form of these MkIV chaps.
Anyway, on to what this thread is all about: Death Guard. In future updates I'll be showing off some painted models in the panoply of implacable war, ask everyone's opinion on fluff direction, and maybe have some story ideas written out. There will be much rambling on the merits of the XIVth Legion, as well.
Stay tuned for more Barbarusian (?) delights and thank you to anyone who wants to help with the above question.
