The Quatermaster

So over Christmas one of the models i recived was the Forge World Quatermaster, i recently painted this a part of the 40k Radio's Freebootaz forum Motovational challenge.

So here are the Pictures of the squad and how i think i will use him and what he brings to the Death Korps Army.

 The Quatermaster

And his Retinue

What is a Quatermaster?
The Quatermaster is the Death Korps medic and equiptment gatherer. The reason they have these units is as has been said, why they are there and not in any other Imperial Guard army, is that during the war on Krieg they loss of men and Equipment was so high they needed men and equipment quickly back in the line, so these men were sent forward to find both.

What does it bring to your army? 
The Quatermaster brings (apart from cool models) Feel No Pain for any infantry unit in your army that is within 2inchs of the Quatermaster or his servitors. I find this interesting as in the Death Korps you can combine Squad your platoon troops, so a 60 man squad that could have Feel No Pain would be very interesting. But even more interesting is that you can also combine Platoon Heavy Weapon teams into 1 squad to so the chance of 9 lascannon teams with Feel No Pain is pretty nasty.

I have not tried this unit out yet or any of my ideas so any thoughts or feedback would be great thanks for reading

Work From the Front Line

Okay so im not very good at this regular post thing, since my last post i have been working on a few things and got 2 games in.

First of what have i been working on i have painted a squad of men for the 101st

Then i did an Artillery Crew too
 Oh and i started an Air force after i got this for Christmas, i have spent some time on this due to my Airbrush braking and it taking some time to get a replacement

so after one base coat of Astronomican Grey and then after loads of masking tape a sprayed it with Codex Grey.
 I then put thinned down Oil paint of Brunt Umber round the bolts and joins.

And this is were i finished it. Now i also mentioned that i had 2 games i never got pictures so sorry about that i have however put a kill count at the top of the blog, as that is what the Death Korps do well. what i did get from both of these games is that i have no idea of how to play Imperial Guard.

Last but not least, this project took a real body blow when Warhammer World moved the date for the Imperial Warmarch so i can not attend this event anymore and have started work on a Red Scorpions army, as these were also involved in the Siege of Vraks, i hope people are reading this i may need some help to keep motivated on the Death Korps of Krieg
