I’ve had a slow build up of death guard since I rejoined the hobby in 8th, grabbing cheap dark imperium models but never actually played with them until a new escalation campaign started at my LGS.

Just 500 points for now but got in games against Sisters (argent shroud iirc - the 5up deny ones), orks (death skulls) and orks (beast snagga goffs). I’m playing as the wretched.

Having played as blood angels in the last escalation, it’s nice to be able to take a punch for a change! They seem very tough… but slow!!!

What kits did you used to build the two "possessed" guys?

Did you use multiple lords of contagion to make some Deathshroud? Looks good!

I’ve got a unit of three spawn, using zombiecide abominations:)

Thanks! Yep - a couple of years ago they were peanuts on eBay, so I rebased and slightly modded a few!

A few years ago, I picked up some blightlord bodies on the cheap to turn into mutilators (by adding possessed arms/weapons). Left me with a couple of blightlord bodies moldering away in my bits box.

I finally remembered I had them and noticed that the felthius/tainted cohort box was out again (and I’d recently picked up a terminator lord kit to build a sorcerer and therefore had an axe and combi bolter spare!).

So, grabbed felthius and the tainted cohort and tried to turn them into blightlords. Felthius getting a combi melta and balesword, the spewer becomes a flail guy (thanks to spare mortarion bits- who I’ve also picked up!)

Needs a little tidying up. And flail guy has a slightly odd pose due to previously holding a spewer… but usable I think!
Aspiring champion felthius looks so happy at the prospect of melting someone!

Played a fourth game , this time a bloodbath against the thousand sons. Ended up with me tabling him at the bottom of t4 and winning by 5 points, with only a wounded plaguecaster and a sole chaos spawn left. He had a mutilith that didn’t want to die - nasty at 500 points!

3 Spawn (with the upgrade strat) remaining a great unit.

Mortal wounds are horrible!

4-0 so far. About to move to 1000 points!
