An Army on Parade: The 308th Death Korps of Krieg.

308th Death Korps of Krieg Army Showcase

I was up at Warhammer World the day before Armies on Parade, while I wasn’t able to take part I did manage to take a bunch of photos of my entire painted Death Korps of Krieg army* on the lovely Spyral Prime city board. I’ve been working on this Death Korps of Krieg army since I got back into the hobby 5 years ago and it comes to just under 5,000 points which feels a lot less than I thought it would come to. At the bottom of the post is the full army list. Additional photos at the end courtesy of Dan Cooke and Sean Power.

*  minus the Trojan Support Vehicle that I forgot about.

      Thanks. It was certainly a highlight to get it all together at Warhammer World and take some photos. 🙂

    What inspiration! Outstanding look and quality. I see what you mean about 5000 points; so much more you can add! Cheers!

      Thanks! There’s definitely more riders I’d love to add, along with HW teams, Macharius tanks and heavy artillery. In an ideal world I’a also have a lot more troops too.

    Amazing Army !!!! I am in the process of rebuilding imperial guard army to work as both a independent army and as part of my custom Space marine Chapter (Steel Hydra)home world PDF.I am currently torn of the look of my Guard leaning towards DEATH CORPS or classic Hindi Turban head dress with light armor. The force will be mechanized with Chimera Type chassis and supported by wheeled based Taurox.

      Thanks! Death Korps are always a great look, and can do lots of light armour with Storm Chimeras and Centaurs. However a Tallarn style army would look great too. The models are just harder to find unless you go 3rd party.
