Warhammer 40,000 – Not My First Death Guard Terminators

A while back I started thinking about adding some Terminators to my Warhammer 40,000 Death Guard Army.  I even purchased some over a year ago before really looking at the rules for them or the specific weapon options.

As I had been buying older Death Guard Plague Marines I thought older Death Guard Terminators would still be usable.  I was wrong sadly.  Those figures will be converted at some point, but being a lazy soul, I decided to buy some proper Blightlord Terminators and make a start on them.

I see them as a unit of close assault heavies.  They are soooooo slow they will need to teleport to where they will be most effective, then stay there…

The sculpts are the typical mix of new GW details.  All the standard chaps are carrying Combi weapons (a Combi-Flamer on this chap)

Heavy weapons are included as usual and, as I have chosen a close assault theme for these guys, I have a Plague Spewer on this chap.


A Plague Flail for when you really want to hurt the people standing in front of you…

And the chap in charge has a Combi-Melta.

Nothing truly special here, but a good staple load out for a closer combat aimed unit.

  1. What are your thoughts on the new Death Guard models? I used to think I wanted to start a DG army, but honestly I have been very disappointed with what I have seen of the new models. To me (I dont have any so can’t say for sure) look like they have no customization options so it comes down to paint jobs to make them look different if you have a large force, and the models look very generic without much thought to the lore of Nurgle. Not to mention to me a lot of the models and especially the new paint scenes look very dumbed down and child friendly in contrast to the lore and previous renditions. As someone who as collected the old models and has some new what are your thoughts?

    1. As an owner of lots of older Death Guard figures (not that I started the army before 8th edition came out) I can say that those older sculpts were far better, in my opinion, than the newer ones. The newer ones are often easy build figures so, yes, they do not have much in the way of options for customisation as you say. They do have lots of nice details and are well thought out but just not my cup of tea. Call me old school but I do like multi part figures with mixable sculpts. The odd unit of newer figures fit in well with my older sculpts but I for one would not want a whole army of them.
