Well as always I need to come out of the gate hard and as heavy as I can to sustain me in this competition and take advantage of all the motivation that I will get from it!
So here is my opening salvo!
30 Plaguebearers for my ever growing Death Guard force that I started with the release of 8th edition and to coincide with the ongoing campaign happening at our local club!
This will join the other 20 that I have painted already for the forces. And I do like the color scheme of it that I plan to keep it up for the rest of the deamons that I will be adding ( mostly Princes atm ).
They are followed up by 2 easier to paint spawns that help with the flanks of my games..
Last game they did well to keep transports stuck but died quickly thereafter... more like mini speed bumps than anything useful :D
And finally 20 cultists to help bolster my Poxwalkers when using some of the new Death Guard stratagems.
Aaand, the first Paint Bomb of Challenge VIII goes to KyleC - Well done, my good man!
This is astonishing output, especially considering the Challenge has only been on the rails for a little over 60 hours!
When looking at these closely, one can see how you managed to cut corners on painting and time by the clever use of coloured primer, single colour glazes/washes and controlled tonal highlights, BUT it's so masterfully done that it gives the impression of a motley ragtag unit.
An impressive opening cannonade, Kyle! With this entry you've managed to bag 1/4 of your points target in one-go, amazing stuff. I look forward to seeing the upcoming Possessed, Daemon Princes and Titans (plural!).
