Hades Breaching Drill WIP

Been working on my Death Korps over the last few days while my friend has been assembling his Necrons and testing out some paint schemes. I'm not going to post any of my troop photos yet as I'm batching painting and all you'd see is a some squads primed white with only the coats and helmets painted! So instead here is a WIP shot of what every Death Korps army needs... a Hades Breaching Drill! I still need to do a few touch ups and add a bit more rubble on the conveyor belt but I'm pretty happy so far with how its turned out.

Death Korps of Krieg 2.0

Yep, I've gone back to the well. A friend of mine has reignited my passion for 40k by picking up the new Necron Battleforce and a few other bits. He has never played 40k before or any other games systems. It all started when I recommended he pick up Space Marine for the xbox. He knew nothing about the fluff or factions apart from the occasional peek at what I am working on or listening to me waffle about the latest Black Library book I have read. After picking up the game and playing it through and then spending many hours online together on the multiplayer modes he started asking questions about the 40k Universe. I lent him my copy of the 40k rulebook and after reading through this and looking on the GW website I met up with him a week later to find he had picked up the Necron codex, Command barge and the Battleforce boxset. We have arranged to have a 500 or 750 point game as soon as we both have our armies ready. I have dug out my unfinished Death Korps and began working on a new scheme and list for our first game. I have lots to paint and I'm working on a tough conversion for my army commander which will be part of the Death Rider command squad. Lots of updates to come as I make progress and also some ideas for a list that I'll be using, until then I leave you with a look at my "almost finished" Grenadier Centaur.  Enjoy!
