The following transmission originates from a rebel human colony - intercepted by Solar Auxillia scouts of the 777th Rad Dogs attached to the 456th Expedition Fleet, working under the IVXth Legion

 

894.M30 - Resistance Outpost to Resistance Headquarters

 

The line opens with some brief static and the high pitched sound of a vox frequency adjusting. It is eventually broken and tuned into a male voice - deep and gruff, but a sense of culture, like he is learned in both scholarly and soldiery pursuits. The pic-feed adjusts and shows his face - he seems to be about 40, rugged and wreathed by war and his uniform denotes mid-level seniority, a line or platoon officer perhaps. He speaks:

 

"The mists are coming in... The men don't feel safe. Unease grips at thier throats like a would be assassin, threatening to end what miserable lives they have defending this hell hole. We were told to shore up this place and for what? Not even a whisper of an enemy. Day after day and night after night we wait but they never come. Johnson thought he saw something at dusk the other night, a grey shadow with obsidian eyes peering at us in the distance.

 

We all laughed at the poor bastard. Although now, with no sign of the enemy there are... Whispers....

 

"What if they're seizing us up?" "What if they're waiting for our supplies to run out?" "What if they aren't man, but ghost intent on eating our souls!"

 

Yes... That last one was Johnson. Wild imagination running again. I keep them in line. Run drills and patrols to keep them on thier feet. When the enemy come, if they do come....

 

We'll. Be. Read-

 

The distinctive sound of bolter fire suddenly intensifies, as the door to the room is kicked open and the mist floods in through the open hatch. The man turns around in an instant and fear washes over him.

 

"Oh lord... Johnson was rig-"

 

A single bolt round pierces the mist and his head in turn, his bloodied body slumping to the floor. The last image of captured before the feed ends is as follows:

Well - Hopefully you enjoyed that little bit of fluff and photoshop msn-wink.gif I've made it pretty obvious in the AoD forums I'm going to be starting DG so I thought I'd make a thread to pretty much cover all aspects of that: Fluff, Lists, Modelling & Painting etc. This will be a suuuuuuuper long term project so updates will come and go when I can (and when I'm not doing my BA for 40k!). I have a bit of a fluff idea for these guys but I'm going to be building mainly on rule of cool.

 

Oh and chemical warfare. Lots of that. The only good Xenos is a Xenos with a chemical fire where his eyes used to be.

 

But no one cares about that really do they? You want models! The resin hasn't even been washed properly on these, but this (bar a couple of MK3 suits) is all I have so far for the Reaper's Legion.

There would be much gnashing of teeth and pulling of hair if you painted Death Guard silver. Luckily we all know you won't...right ohmy.png?

I suspect silver, then chipping medium, the rust and cream :)

 

I am going to look forward to this descent into weaponised chemical hell..

 

You have some sweet models so far, can't wait to see the paint fly.

Hairspray works pretty well too, or using salt..

 

Thread derailment imminent... I love the DG terminators... I also like that you are doing the top-knot too so it is akin to the collected visions artwork.

 

Derailment averted, phew!!

Silver Death Guard kinda makes sense. That's the color of bare ceramite, below the standard paint that chips at the first bullet fired by a rebel, or melts at the first las-shot.

Exactly! I'm thinking a really dull silver, almost grey with maybe some white in the right places.

I'm also planning a little... Dusk Raider Flair ;)

Thanks for the comments guys :)

Bare ceramite is ivory coloured. Grey Knights wear silver impregnated ceramite. Just wanted to throw that out there smile.png.

In thinking somewhere between silver, white and the proto Legion grey. Red and green accents.

A dull, light silver could look pretty sweet! would definately stand out from the pure white battle damaged and the grime encrusted or dirty ivory coloured forces!

 

Was thinking about the same for some of my veteran squads (helmets/left shoulder) and breacher squads,


'But she may yet die. We do not have an Apothecary anymore. You killed him. Remember?'

Ruokh's eye twitched. 'That was a fair fight,' he growled.

'It was to first blood,' said Dreagher.

'I only hit him once,' said Ruokh.

'You decapitated him.'

'There was A LOT of first blood.' Ruokh admitted.

He's a DG from the 1st heresy book :P

And maybe, I don't think robes are much of a DG thing. They serve no purpose.

Second possible scheme idea - mainly taking the green away from the pauldrons and onto the trim... Also potentially darker metal pauldrons smile.png

 

Hell due to the nature of legions I'll probably mix the two schemes across squads?

Not a fan of the top knot, but the colour scheme looks like it could work. Pretty dark, but I suppose that is the theme ;)

Always liked the topknots on the Cataphractii sets in the artwork, always thought it added to the overall "elite" effect it gave.

 

I am not too sure how it looks on the helm rather than the top of the torso will look forward to how it is painted up!
