Death Korps Tunnelling Squad

An update from the mists of time... I found these pics buried in my computer this morning, so I thought I'd share them in all their poorly-lit gloriness.  They're part of my nascent 500pt Death Korps army - in fact the only active 40K project I have on the go at the moment.  I've almost totally switched over to historical stuff, but still enjoy painting these figures for old times' sake.

If this were an Osprey book, I'd point out the camouflage helmets and blue turnback cuffs - both distinctions of Pioneer Korps units.  They are identifiable as part of the Divisional Pioneer Battalion (as opposed to Company Pioneer Platoon), since the latter are considered 'organic' and wear white turnback cuffs like the infantry unit they're attached to.





Perhaps one day we'll get round to a battle report for these chaps.  Oh well!

Still in full ECW mode.  I'm running a 2mm demonstration game on Sunday at the National Civil War Centre on Sunday, so I hope to have a post up about that next week.

Bye for now!

  1. Yes a bit hard to see, but these guys are looking good.

  2. Hmm need a bit more light to show them off, maybe get a psuedo light box to bounce some light back at them? They look really cool, want to see more of the paintjob!

    1. Thanks Greg! Yes, they're not ideal but I guess I thought the grim lighting worked well for them. But point taken, when I get back I'll try and photograph them a bit better.

  3. Like the esteemed gents before me have mentioned, a little more light would help see the detail and sweet painting you've done.

    1. You can never have too much Death Korps. Oh no, I shouldn't have told you that!

  5. I am a huge fan of these. I've followed in your footsteps, in moving to historical, but still painting Krieg. I think they are essentially a mash-up of historical forces, so they kind of fit.

    1. Very kind of you John. Yes, I suppose even here you can see the historical influence pretty strongly!

  7. These look bloody lovely, I really liked the concept behind these. The one 40k project I'd like to finish is a the very small force of Nurgle Marine...
