Fear the Cavalry! Converted all Death Rider DKOK

Checkout this amazing custom converted 80 man 2,000 point Death Rider army for the Death Korps of Krieg that Gothmog made for a local GT!

So I know I have been kinda quet the last few months. I had a Master Thesis to finish (in applied Physics), a cross country move/vacation (23 days CA to VA with a wedding in the middle), bought a house and then painted like a MADMAN for a local GT back in September.

And what did I paint? Well what about 80 Death Riders and a Thunderbolt Fighter (now known as Pegasus)… Yeah I was kinda insane. But I did it. And man was it worth it. I made finalist for Army Appearance (top 14 of 220) and probably placed around 6th or 7th… and I will admit, I still have some detail work to do, so super pleased with these results. I’ll get some better close ups and info on them up in the coming months.

I won my standalone trios game and 2 of my 6 GT games, losing 1 of those by 1 point in a highly contested game vs Tyranids. Had we played more turns than 3 (I know, I know) it could have easily swung back my way.  Tabled by Ynnari 2 times though. But to me the weakness in the list was the 2 Thunderer Siege Tanks.

What do you think of the Death riders army?
