From Daemons to Wardens

Having completed the Plague Drones in the usual scheme, I’ll now turn my attention to bolstering my Grave Wardens. I’ve had five for quite a while, but this should provide some more flexibility – either as another separate squad, or to make a super retinue unit.

…Of total value 4521pts on or before August 1st. Now, making this vow just over four weeks before was perhaps ambitious – but I was keen to crack on and get a huge chunk of this done. Or die trying…

As ever, I resorted to painting in large batches, and spraying too:

I ploughed through the Deathshroud and Grave Wardens first:

And then moved onto the Cataphractii:

Which became:

Then:

Before trims:

Leaving me with just a Knight:

If anyone is wondering why there’s a change of colour scheme from my normal – it’s because I’ve tied it into the Legio Mortis, with my inspiration being Dread Wake.

Meaning I had completed all of this!

And then, crazily, added another two vows with 24 hours to go:

Which I completed that evening:

6971pts completed in total over the course of a month – not bad, eh?

I’d highly recommend entering something similar: high levels of motivation and seeing everyone else’s great work is a massive inspiration. And, you can plough through great quantities in no time!
