The Death Company were the first (and so far only!!) army I ever fully painted up complete and ready for war. I was so damn proud of them when I was done. Whilst I still love how they look, my painting style has evolved away from the style they were painted in, and generally for the better in my eyes, though I am sure some will disagree as is their right :)
However in the past 18 months they have been played with on only two different occasions which included the fantastic mammoth charity event organised by Nick of The Burning Eye. The other being a 3000 point game with Dark Angels allies against my good mate Dan.
Whilst I have been loathe to let them go, it has been on my mind for some time. Primarily because I hated that they weren't getting played with after so much time spent on them. I thought long and hard about what to do with them as I didn't just want to pawn them off on eBay, though I was sure I could get a pretty penny for them.
As it is I have managed to devise an excellent way to trade them off and still get to see them played! This involves YouTube... However I don't want to step on the recipients toes as the rightful owner and so I will keep their big reveal under wraps till their first game goes live. However this does mean that anyone who has followed the creation of this army in black will now actually get to admire them in action as well as get to see the army expanded to new heights!!
For now I have some choice close up pictures for you and some old army pictures for you to enjoy, as we don't say goodbye to the Death Company, but more of a 'I'll see you around'.
Rest assured as soon as they are alive in their new incarnation I will have a post up letting you know where you can go and see them make bloody murda :)
