This is a tribute to all the fans of the "Realms of Chaos" supplements. We tried to keep the original spirit of these 3rd ed supplements. I hope you enjoy the pics like me...
This battle is an attempt for increase the influence of the Plague Father in the chaos wastes. Opposing the dreaded pestilent horde of Nurgle , the mighty cohort of followers of the Dark God.
We played with 8th ed rules, 4500 pts “Blood and Glory” scenario. The Nurgle army was totally constructed with an adaptation list of the supplement “Lost an Damned” and I constructed my army with an adaptation list of the supplement “WHFB Armies”. In addition, we played the “chaos gifts” of the 4th ed chaos supplement.
This confrontation was a perfect contacts battle with a high level of closes combats phases like every Chaos Lords can dream.
The Nurgles troops advance was stopped by lots of charges of the Chaos Undivided troops. Plagues Trolls was slayed by the General and his chosen unit but in the second turn they was entirely destroyed by a combined charges of two units of plagues bearers with palanquin and the pestilent General on his Spided Dragon. This killing blow sounded the end of the battle for me, I was the first to reach the army breaking point but we decided to continued the battle. See pics for the rest of the confrontation.
Just a few words about my enemy of the day, I named Slaanesh Child. He’s a vintage collector like me, check this link to see his huge chaos armies. Many olds miniatures and a lot of awesome conversions.
