    I tried to vary it up a bit, I'm doing 10 Plaguebearers blue and 3 drones the opposite to the 3 shown just to add variety.

    Also apart from the GUO and Poxwalker all moderls are just washed and drybrushed then detail added.

    I love the Yellow-y Plague Bearers! They truly look sick to me! Don't touch!

    Well... Someones been busy, haven't they?!

    Black Templars - I am done looking at Space Marines for now. They make my brain ache. Your lad with the banner looks good though, black, white and red are always going to work well together. I still have that colour scheme in mind for some harlequins one day.

    GUO - Nice... I'd turn the gore up to 11 and use nurgles rot and BftBG a lot more, but that's my taste for nurgles.

    The Pox Walker - I like it. I feel like the nurgling is too bright and makes itself the focus on the mini. Could just be the lighting in the photo though?

    Plague drones are good. I love the wing colour, it works pretty well against the green. I'm not totally sold on the carapace colour though, it feels disjointed against the wings and body colour for some reason.

    Plaguewalkers look nice.

    Agree! The yellow ones and the light green ones are my favourites as well.

    That's a bunch of stuff! Definitely getting the Warscryer Citadel, Keldrek and probably a Mausoleum myself.

    How do you find the warscoll cards? Have you got any others? Wondering how they are for size / legibility.

    My friend @Mesandres bought the Bonesplitterz warscroll cards and he complains that they are too small.
    I looked at them and for me they are allright, but I have very good eyes. The font size is small, feels like half the size of the text in the Battletome itself.

    I am going to buy the Nagash Battletome and the cards as well, also the MP book and the new black dice.
    Not sure if the MP cards are of any use though.... I have to look and see what they even do... does anyone know that yet?

    Look similar to the other set of random battle generator cards they put out, but might be involved directly in Malign Portents somehow. They're on my list of things to buy...

    I think I will just get teh set then, for 47€, and the Legions of Nagahs set (Battletome and Cards), also for 45€
    ....and all that so I can read books telling me what else to spend money on. The Battletome means I will expand my Death force.

    Marketing. It works.

    I have to wear glasses to read the Battletome now so the cards are fine.

    I've already got a garden of Morr set and one of the old GW graveyard terrain pieces so with the Mausoleum I'm thinking a full 5x3 graveyard board, just need a suitable battle mat now.

    Still have money in paypal so spend spend spend

    I think I am going to create a Legions of Nagash thread in the general section of the forums, so we can talk about some list ideas. Some of the leaked rules blow my mind, have you seen them already?

    I've seen the book, it's going to be a good one! Not sure if it'll take Death to the top tier, still not enough mortal wound mitigation but you never know...

    I prefer to wait until I have the book before looking at rules etc

    Just adds to the excitement.
