Background and basing

I've always like the Flesh Eater background story and had wanted to make a force around Arthurian legends- initially it was going to be an Imperial Knights force for 40k. But with the new battletome (and Carrion Empire!) I realised Flesh Eaters were the perfect army!

The Story 
King Arthur, the Once and Future King of Albion, was betrayed by she who was dearest to him. His betrothal to the daughter of a powerful baronial family was meant to usher in a time of peace and prosperity but he was betrayed. The father of the bride, a Vampire Count, cursed Arthur with delusion of the Carrion King. In the primal rage that overtook him, he killed his wife-to-be, thinking her to be an agent in disguise from her father's court. Believing his beloved to be imprisoned by her Vampire father, Arthur and his court of noble knights seek to free her and destroy the Vampiric Barony once and for all. 

The bases will be ruins of the capital of Albion. Chivalric banners and penants will hang from collapsed columns and lie torn on the floors. 

King Arthur, The Once and Future King, Arch Regent

Dragon Base

This first base is for a Terrorgheist. As it landed on the ruins, it split the floor below, revealing masses of skeletons and bodies underneath.

most impressive, a wonderful use of green stuff.

Thanks, that's very kind! I've just started using and finding it easier than i thought it would be!

yeah, it's great stuff. Admittedly, I had never thought of using it for basing, I have to try that some time.

That Terrorgheist base is remarkable, an excellent use of the ruins!

Thanks- it's about halfway done. I'll post an update pic soon- some skeletons and dead bodies on the floor and larger penants/flags draped on the floor too. I risk going overboard with green stuff everywhere!

thanks for letting me know about that! I've probably got more green stuff then I know what to do with, so this would be an excellent use!
