Ah, the good ol’ reliable Plague Swarm. I think I’ve taken one of these in every single game of Deadzone I’ve played. They’re such a solid, dependable unit and there are very few opponents they they can’t crack open and eat up.
They’re great models too. A proper gribbly mix of rats, slugs, beetles and multi-legged and pincered ‘millepedes’. This gives a good variety of things to paint on each model, so you can squeeze in quite a few different colours.
There’s only one sculpt of a Plague Swarm, but as there are a couple of separate pieces to attach (the rearing ‘millipedes’) you can work in a little variety. I’ve assembled and painted two Swarms to date, but with a bit of variety in assembly and palette, you can make each one look pleasingly different, yet obviously part of the same force.
The top-down shot below shows both swarms with the same orientation, so you can clearly see the difference you can make by varying assembly and colour palette.
“Extreme close up. Whooaaa!!!” *Swarm’s World! Swarm’s World! Party time, excellent!
