Plague tower!!!

For members to post long running threads about projects they are working on

H'mm. I'm alright with the datasheet as you are paying 700pts for it, and it does only have armour 12. I'll just have to get in close to deal with it and suffer the flame template of doom. I'll be putting in my daemon hunters too, as clearly this foul monstrosity must be purged by Grandmaster Gustav Vile!

Who, how why what???
I think we may have stumbled upon a plot twist...have a listen to (and a mouseover) this...

http://www.geocities.com/warhammer_40kc ... /index.htm

:twisted:
Long lost and somewhat distant relations, possibly???

Anyway, are you happy with the scenario idea?
How about if we add +5 kp if one of the vile's inflicts the last wound on (or insta-kills) on the other???
And size of game?
We have 3000-3200 ig available, 3000-3200 Death guard + 700 tower.

We have tons of other stuff too, but the plague theme would suffer...

scenario sounds fine.
Size wise, I have 6000+pts of witch hunters, but that won't fit in FOC's eg I have loads of HQ variations to choose from. I also have 1500pts of daemon hunters.
I don't want the game to get too big to be honest. How many players do we have?

Well, how about me (2300 ig + 700 tower) and Stargod (3000 plague marines) vs Norsemantyr (3000 sisters) + you (3000 sisters/daemon hunters)???

If that's still a prob re-foc, it's not the end of the world. All I want to avoid is apoc style biggest baddest everything with no-place for the common foot slogger.

For eg, I made a quick list yesterday with (approx) 169 guardsmen and three vehicles and everything in the death guard that can, has the mark of Nurgle, in units of 7 (almost all!) and there were even 14 "elements, once an ic had been "promised" to a squad!

So fluff and spectacle are more important than 100% by the rules.

In addition to the four of us, there (should be) Caspar and Hivefleetbrawn.

They might be playing each other, but could be brought in to speed things up, if you like.


How are we going to handle special rules/wargear for allies and/or the other army on your side?
Eg, should you lot have a giganto pool of faith and use it as you want/have 2 pools, 1 for each farce and if I take Straken, will friendly models be guardsmen etc only, or my daemon hunters and or plague marines with furious charge???

H'mm probably best if special rules are limited to the parent army to cut down on any odd stuff.
The only problem I would have with the FOC is fielding the whole 6000 + pts. For example, I have 6? canonesses, a living saint, kyrinov, jacobus and an inquisitor for witch hunter HQ's.
Which reminds me, I also have my apostate cardinal 'Grumbledook' if you'd like him to 'urge' your guard commander forward.

Well, normally, my guard seem to feel the urge to die in their millions and get tank shocked into oblivion!

Got two cyclops done now and the (latest) prototype for a penal legionaire resplendant with "implosion" helmet!!!

Image

I've ordered more soviet gas mask heads to take me up to (squads) 10 infantry, 2x lascannon + 2x missile + 2x mortar + 1 comp comm sec + 3 platoon comm sec + 2x vets + 2x stormies + 1 penal + 2x special weapon (grenade launcher)squads.

Nearly done now!

Are the black stripes supposed to be much thicker than the yellow ones on the right there?

There are no black stripes, only yellow ones.
