Army of the Month – January – Bees?!

Living true to the motto ” The Only Thing I Spam is Wins “, January’s army of the month is now in the books, and showcased here for your viewing pleasure.


This army originally started as my ATC 2018 army.  However I couldn’t attend ATC this year, so I put the project on the back burner.

The Basement Collective Team Event resurrected this army, as our Chaos player dropped at the last minute, leaving our team without a solid defending list.


The list itself is this:

Daemons Battalion

  • Epidemius
  • Spoilpox Scrivener – Relic: Corruption – Whatever Warlord Trait
  • 3 Nurglings
  • 3 Nurglings
  • 3 Nurglings
  • 9 Plague Drones, Icon and Instrument
  • 9 Plague Drones, Icon and Instrument

Alpha Legion Spearhead

  • Chaos Sorceror – Slaanesh – Delightful Agonies and Prescience ( sometimes Deathhex )
  • 18 Cultists – Slaanesh
  • 3 Oblits – Slaanesh
  • 3 Oblits – Nurgle
  • 3 Oblits – Nurgle

Fortification Network

  • Feculent Gnarlmaw


Painting the Army of the Month

This is a great example of an army that was halfway there:  I had half the Nurglings, 6 Drones and my dashing Epidemius done; and bought the Chaos part of the army from my friend Tony a while back.

But the rest was sitting unbuilt and/or unpainted.


Because I finished with time to spare ( like, 6 hours ) I also toughed up the display board to make it unique for this army, rather than ‘generic’ to swap between armies.  This is something I really like, so expect every Army of the Month to have it’s own display.

You can find more pictures in the Facebook gallery here; and check out how I painted my custom Feculent Gnarlmaw here.


March’s army of the month is a Blood Raven list, that will be painted to match my existing Blood Ravens collection.
