I've always liked the idea of collecting different chapters but not enough time nor money to do so. When the Deathwatch was created a few years ago, I created a 10 man squad using the metal parts that were available then. With the new plastic Deathwatch releases, I finally had the time, money and ability to create a Deathwatch Army.

I work on the rule of cool - I don't build to game, just for the love of converting, modelling and painting. Some of my models have illegal weapon load outs e.g. bolt pistols, but I can't see how the most ELITE Space Marines can not carry side arms!!. Whenever I see a useful Space Marine part on ebay or bitz sites I get it as you never know when you will need to use it!

I want to make veterans from as many different chapters as possible and am using this poster as a starting point (the ones with ticks are the chapter badges I've already made and put onto veterans):

845590_sm-Deathwatch%20poster.JPG

I'm trying to convert existing shoulder pads and bits and sometimes a bit of milliput to sculpt the different badges. I'll show you some later and explain where I got the parts as well.

So without further ado:

Silver Skulls Deathwatch Veteran

845678_sm-Silver%20Skulls%20Deathwatch%2

845679_sm-Silver%20Skulls%20Deathwatch%2

845680_sm-Silver%20Skulls%20Deathwatch%2

This trooper was made from the new Deathwatch Veteran Kit which has a fantastic amount of spare pieces to make loads more troopers when added to my bitz box. Rather than the usual standing pose, I went with a kneeling pose.

Blood Drinkers Deathwatch Veteran

845681_sm-Blood%20Drinkers%20Deathwatch%

845682_sm-Blood%20Drinkers%20Right%20Sid

845569_sm-Blood%20Drinkers%20Deathwatch%

845568_sm-Blood%20Drinkers%20Deathwatch%

This Chapter Badge was easy to make. I used a Blood Angel Shoulder Pad and added a Blood Drop taken from another Blood Angel part.

Relictors Deathwatch Veteran

845675_sm-Relictors%20Deathwatch%20Front

845676_sm-Relictors%20Deathwatch%20Right

845677_sm-Relictors%20Deathwatch%20Left%

I used an old Warhammer Shield Skull for a chest piece and a skull from a Thunder hammer to make the Relictors' Chapter Badge.

Space Wolves Deathwatch Veteran

845671_sm-Space%20Wolves%20Deathwatch%20

845672_sm-Space%20Wolves%20Deathwatch%20

845673_sm-Space%20Wolves%20Deathwatch%20

845674_sm-Space%20Wolves%20Deathwatch%20

I really enjoyed making this veteran. I've never painted a face and hairstyle like it before and it was far easier than I thought it would be.

Iron Hands Deathwatch Veteran

845670_sm-Iron%20Hands%20Deathwatch%20Fr

845669_sm-Iron%20Hands%20Deathwatch%20Re

845667_sm-Iron%20Hands%20Deathwatch%20Fr

845668_sm-Iron%20Hands%20Deathwatch%20Ri

I had purchased the Iron Hands robotic legs years ago and had used it on another model. When I was creating my Iron Hands veteran, I canabalised the part and added a FW Iron Hands Torso and Helmet to really emphasise which Chapter the veteran comes from!

I've completed 32 Deathwatch veterans so far and will add more to this thread in the near future.

845591_sm-Deathwatch%20WIP.JPG

Here's the next batch of marines on my painting bench. I paint a lot of marines at the same time. I paint the same colours on each marine before moving onto the next colour/process. It's time consuming BUT when I finish, I have a lot finished at the same time.

In case anyone is interested here's my painting order:

1) Black spray base coat.
2) Paint all areas I want to paint red with a white undercoat. Then paint the areas red.
3) Paint the areas I want silver with a black undercoat. Then paint the areas silver.
4) Paint all the gold bits.
5) Paint all the brown bits.
6) Use Nuln oil on all the red, brown, gold and silver areas.
7) Paint all the red, silver and gold over spills with black.
8) Edge highlight all the brown and black parts.
9) Paint chapter badge.

I'll post some more shots soon.

Regards Brother Morgan.

That order of painting is very similar to mine :D 

Favorite is the kneeling marine. Got a nice feel to it.

Cheers Vash. I have so many Veterans that I like, it's hard tom choose the one I like the most!

Some more Deathwatch Veterans:

Emperors Swords

845664_sm-Emperors%20Sword%20Deathwatch%

845665_sm-Emperors%20Sword%20Deathwatch%

This is a Chapter I made up. The shoulder pad was from the Dark angels range. I really enjoyed painting the face on this one.

Mentor Legion

845661_sm-Mentor%20Legion%20Deathwatch%2

845662_sm-Mentor%20Legion%20Deathwatch%2

845663_sm-Mentor%20Legion%20Deathwatch%2

I made use of the Deathwatch Veteran Upgrade sprue on this trooper

White Consuls Deathwatch Veteran

845658_sm-White%20Consuls%20Deathwatch%2

845659_sm-White%20Consuls%20Deathwatch%2

845660_sm-White%20Consuls%20Deathwatch%2

This Chaptor badge was a fairly simple conversion from the Raptor/Mentor Legion Shoulder pad.

Emperors Spears Deathwatch Veteran

845657_sm-Emperors%20Spears%20Deathwatch

845654_sm-Emperors%20Spears%20Deathwatch

845656_sm-Emperors%20Spears%20Deathwatch

This Chapter badge was sculpted from milliput.

Salamanders Deathwatch Veteran

845649_sm-Salamanders%20Deathwatch%20Fro

845650_sm-Salamanders%20Deathwatch%20Rig

845652_sm-Salamanders%20Deathwatch%20Fac

845651_sm-Salamanders%20Deathwatch%20Rea

I loved making this Veteran. I think twin thunder hammers looks super cool and thoroughly in keeping with the Salamanders Chapter.

Till next time, Brother Morgan.

Some more Deathwatch Veterans:

Howling Gryphon Deathwatch Veteran

845647_sm-Howling%20Gryphons%20Deathwatc

I love the shotgun Veterans. I imagine these troops in front of a horde army dishing out the Emperor's salvation!!!

845648_sm-Howling%20Gryphons%20Deathwatc

I love the heraldry on this Chapter badge.

Genesis Deathwatch Veteran

845644_sm-Genesis%20Deathwatch%20Front.J

845645_sm-Genesis%20Deathwatch%20Right%2

The shoulder pad was made from milliput. I sculpted an upside down triangle. Once dry, I shaped and sanded it. I then added the symbol with more milliput. I shaped and sanded it once dry to what you see here. I'm very happy with how it turned out.

845646_sm-Genesis%20Deathwatch%20Rear.JP

Charcadon Deathwatch Veteran

845639_sm-Charcadons%20Deathwatch%20Fron

845640_sm-Charcadons%20Deathwatch%20Righ

The shark was sculpted with milliput. I let the rough shape set for around 1 hour and then with a new scalpel, I cut the shape of a shark out. It's not perfect, but I'm overall happy with this sculpt and paint job.

845642_sm-Charcadons%20Deathwatch%20Rear

Red Wolves Deathwatch Veteran

845636_sm-Red%20Wolves%20Deathwatch%20Fr

845637_sm-Red%20Wolves%20Deathwatch%20Ri

845638_sm-Red%20Wolves%20Deathwatch%20Re

I used lots of Space Wolves parts on this one. Black and red shoulder pad rather than the usual colours.

Blood Angels Deathwatch Veteran

845632_sm-Blood%20Angels%20Deathwatch%20

I think this is the one of the best faces I've ever painted.

845635_sm-Blood%20Angels%20Deathwatch%20

845634_sm-Blood%20Angels%20Deathwatch%20

Storm Giant Deathwatch Veteran

845629_sm-Storm%20Giants%20Deathwatch%20

845631_sm-Storm%20Giants%20Deathwatch%20

This was a simple conversion, a thin piece of plasticard cut in the shape of a lightning bolt. Simple but really effective.

845630_sm-Storm%20Giants%20Deathwatch%20

Mortificators Deathwatch Veteran

845623_sm-Mortificators%20Deathwatch%20F

845624_sm-Mortificators%20Deathwatch%20R

A press mould skull made this Deathwatch Veteran into a Mortificator.

845625_sm-Mortificators%20Deathwatch%20R

Fleshtearer Deathwatch Veteran

845626_sm-Flesh%20Tearer%20Deathwatch%20

What else is better than one chainaxe? Two chainaxes!!!

845628_sm-Flesh%20Tearer%20Deathwatch%20

Imperial Fist Deathwatch Veteran

845619_sm-Imperial%20Fist%202%20Deathwat

845620_sm-Imperial%20Fist%202%20Deathwat

This was made years ago when the original metal head, shoulder pad and bolter was first released.

Brazen Claws Deathwatch Veteran

http://images.dakkad...watch Front.JPG

http://images.dakkad... Right Side.JPG

I opted for this way of painting the shoulder pad instead of the usual quartered version.

http://images.dakkad...hwatch Rear.JPG

Ultramarine Deathwatch Veteran

http://images.dakkad...tch 3 Front.JPG

http://images.dakkad... Right Side.JPG

http://images.dakkad...atch 3 Rear.JPG

Imperial Paladin Deathwatch Veteran

http://images.dakkad... Right Side.JPG

http://images.dakkad...hwatch Rear.JPG

Black Templar shoulder pad painted in the Imperial Paladin chapter colours.

Angel of Vengeance Deathwatch Veteran

http://images.dakkad...watch Front.JPG

http://images.dakkad... Right Side.JPG

http://images.dakkad...hwatch Rear.JPG

I raided my Dark Angels bits for the shoulder pad and my scouts for his sniper rifle.

Sons of Orar Deathwatch Veteran

http://images.dakkad...watch Front.JPG

http://images.dakkad... Right Side.JPG

This was an Ultramarine symbol press moulded and then carefully whittled down to fit and then stuck upside down. Simple and again, I think very effective.

Ultramarine Tyrannic War Deathwatch Veteran

http://images.dakkad...watch Front.JPG

http://images.dakkad... Right Side.JPG

http://images.dakkad...hwatch Rear.JPG

I got this model from ebay. With a few Deathwatch bits added, another trooper completed.

Till next time, Brother Morgan.

More reinforcements:

Lamenters Deathwatch Veteran

847543_sm-Lamenters%20Deathwatch%20Veter

847544_sm-Lamenters%20Deathwatch%20Veter

This shoulder pad wasn't difficult to do - time consuming, but not hard. A small layer of milliput was smoothed within the shoulder pad frame. It was allowed to almost dry when I used a clean scalpel blade and gently pressed the chequerboard design. Once dry, a small ball of milliput was made into a flat disc. Once dry, a small heart was sculpted out of milliput. To finish, I carved a small blood drop out of a thin piece of plasticard. Simple, but effective!

847545_sm-Lamenters%20Deathwatch%20Veter

Raptor Deathwatch Veteran

845595_sm-Raptor%20Deathwatch%20Front.JP

I made this a number of years ago but swopped the shoulder pad to a raptor one when the new plastics came out.

Blackshield Deathwatch Veteran

845570_sm-Deathguard%20Blackshield%20Dea

845571_sm-Deathguard%20Blackshield%20Dea

I wanted to paint this Blackshield's shoulder pad with the base layer of his disavowed legion. Which chapter could he come from????

Marines Exemplar

845581_sm-Marines%20Exemplar%20Deathwatc

845582_sm-Marines%20Exemplar%20Deathwatc

Simple conversion - bottom half of the Novamarine shoulder pad removed and a plastic skull stuck on top.

Ultramarine Deathwatch Veteran

847582_sm-Omega%20Marine%20Deathwatch%20

I turned an Ultramarine symbol 180 degrees and then added a skull to make the Omega Marine badge.

847584_sm-Omega%20Marine%20Deathwatch%20

Brotherhood of a Thousand Deathwatch Veteran

847578_sm-Brotherhood%20of%20a%20Thousan

847579_sm-Brotherhood%20of%20a%20Thousan

This shoulder pad started with a small disc of milliput. Once dry, I carefully sculpted a capital letter M out of milliput.

847580_sm-Brotherhood%20of%20a%20Thousan

Death Spectres Deathwatch Veteran

847574_sm-Death%20Spectres%20Deathwatch%

847575_sm-Death%20Spectres%20Deathwatch%

847577_sm-Death%20Spectres%20Deathwatch%

Fire Lords Deathwatch Veteran

847571_sm-Fire%20Lords%20Deathwatch%20Ve

847572_sm-Fire%20Lords%20Deathwatch%20Ve

Deathstrike Deathwatch Veteran

847568_sm-Deathstrike%20Deathwatch%20Vet

Knights of the Raven Deathwatch Veteran

Update time.

866510_sm-Knights%20of%20the%20Raven%20D

866512_sm-Knights%20of%20the%20Raven%20D

No conversion needed on this shoulder pad - a simple paint job was all that was required.

Dark Angel Deathwatch Veteran

866514_sm-Dark%20Angel%20Deathwatch%20Ve

866515_sm-Dark%20Angel%20Deathwatch%20Ve

A quick conversion from Dark Angel parts I had in my bits box.

White Templars Deathwatch Veteran

866517_sm-White%20Templars%20Deathwatch%

866518_sm-White%20Templars%20Deathwatch%

I wanted a special force vibe for this guy - I added a few bolter magazines across his chest to make sure he never runs out of ammo. The shoulder pad was sculpted out of milliput.

Dark Angel Deathwatch Veteran

866521_sm-Dark%20Angel%20Deathwatch%20Ve

866523_sm-Dark%20Angel%20Deathwatch%20Ve

You can never have too many heavy flamers to kill the xeno scum!!!

Brazen Minotaurs Deathwatch Veteran

866529_sm-Brazen%20Minotaurs%20Deathwatc

866530_sm-Brazen%20Minotaurs%20Deathwatc

866531_sm-Brazen%20Minotaurs%20Deathwatc

Just a simple paint job on this one.

Dark Hunters Deathwatch Veteran

866533_sm-Dark%20Hunters%20Deathwatch%20

866535_sm-Dark%20Hunters%20Deathwatch%20

The shoulder pad was again a simple milliput sculpt.

Salamanders Deathwatch Veteran

866538_sm-Salamanders%20Deathwatch%20Vet

866539_sm-Salamanders%20Deathwatch%20Vet

866540_sm-Salamanders%20Deathwatch%20Vet

Lots of ammo on this veteran.

I've just finished my 100th veteran. I'll post more over the next few days.

Regards, Brothers Morgan.

It's supposed to be an Emperors Children - I have made a Soul Drinker, I'll show it off soon.

Crimson Fist Deathwatch Veteran

866543_sm-Crimson%20Fist%20Deathwatch%20

Simple paint job to convert this from an Imperial Fist to a Crimson Fist.

866544_sm-Crimson%20Fist%20Deathwatch%20

866545_sm-Crimson%20Fist%20Deathwatch%20

Iron Knights Deathwatch Veteran

866552_sm-Iron%20Knights%20Deathwatch%20

866549_sm-Iron%20Knights%20Deathwatch%20

I sculpted the shoulder pad cross out of milliput and have since made a mould to make different chapters with similar designs. I added lots of spare magazines as I feel you can never have too much ammo!!!

Flesheaters Deathwatch Veteran

869627_sm-Flesh%20Eaters%20Deathwatch%20

869628_sm-Flesh%20Eaters%20Deathwatch%20

This was a fairly simple chapter badge to make. Once a thin layer of milliput had almost dried, I used a scalpel to cut out the shape of the badge. I am really pleased with the result.

Doom Warriors Deathwatch Veteran

869630_sm-Doom%20Warriors%20Deathwatch%2

869631_sm-Doom%20Warriors%20Deathwatch%2

I haven't done many plasma weapons, so I thought I'd go overboard on this veteran! I used a Sternguard shoulder pad as a base and then extended the tail feathers from milliput. Once dry, I added a lightning bolt from milliput and finally a small skull to finish. Simple to do, but painstakingly slow!

Carmine Blades Deathwatch Veteran

869633_sm-Carmine%20Blades%20Deathwatch%

869634_sm-Carmine%20Blades%20Deathwatch%

The shoulder pad was made from a skull and blood drops made from milliput.

Herald of Ultramar Deathwatch Veteran

869636_sm-Heralds%20of%20Ultramar%20Deat

869637_sm-Heralds%20of%20Ultramar%20Deat

The shoulder pad started as a Blood Angel icon with a star sculpted over the middle. Easy to do.

Storm Hawks Deathwatch Veteran

869640_sm-Storm%20Hawks%20Deathwatch%20V

869642_sm-Storm%20Hawks%20Deathwatch%20V

869641_sm-Storm%20Hawks%20Deathwatch%20V

I cut a lightning bolt out of thin plasticard and added it to a Raptor shoulder pad. Again, a simple conversion!

Rampagers Deathwatch Veteran

869644_sm-Rampagers%20Deathwatch%20Veter

869645_sm-Rampagers%20Deathwatch%20Veter

869646_sm-Rampagers%20Deathwatch%20Veter

I used an Imperial Fist icon as the starting point for this chapter badge. After placing it at a 45 degree angle and then added some plasticard lightning bolts.

I'll add some more soon.

Regards, Brother Morgan.

More updates:

Blackshield Deathwatch Veteran

869648_sm-Blackshield%20Deathwatch%20Vet

869650_sm-Blackshield%20Deathwatch%20Rig

This was made years ago when the original metal head, shoulder pad and bolt gun were released. I went with an "Alien" type weapon by using a metal SM Scout Heavy Bolter.

Imperious Reavers Deathwatch Veteran

869654_sm-Imperious%20Reavers%20Deathwat

869656_sm-Imperious%20Reavers%20Deathwat

I used an Ultramarine shoulder pad as the base and then used a sword from a DA icon and carefully filed it until it was the same depth as the UM icon. When added together, a striking chapter badge was created.

Iron Hands Deathwatch Veteran

869669_sm-Iron%20Hands%20Deathwatch%20Ve

869670_sm-Iron%20Hands%20Deathwatch%20Ve

869671_sm-Iron%20Hands%20Deathwatch%20Ve

I used a backpack from the Devastators set to differentiate this marine.

White Scar Deathwatch Veteran

869659_sm-White%20Scar%20Deathwatch%20Ve

869660_sm-White%20Scar%20Deathwatch%20Ve

As with the Blackshield veteran posted earlier, this was made from the original metal parts and a metal White Scar shoulder Pad.

Shadow Wolves Deathwatch Veteran

869662_sm-Shadow%20Wolves%20Deathwatch%2

869663_sm-Shadow%20Wolves%20Deathwatch%2

869665_sm-Shadow%20Wolves%20Deathwatch%2

Went overboard with wolves on this one!! I don't plan on making anymore Space Wolves conversions so I thought I'd try and use as many SW parts I had in my bits box for this one.

Imperial Talons Deathwatch Veteran

869666_sm-Imperial%20Talons%20Deathwatch

869667_sm-Imperial%20Talons%20Deathwatch

The shoulder pad was sculpted out of milliput. I've made a small mould so I can do other chapters with the same icon in the future.

Blood Swords Deathwatch Veteran Biker

869675_sm-Blood%20Swords%20Deathwatch%20

869677_sm-Blood%20Swords%20Deathwatch%20

The bike was taken from the DA Dark Vengeance box set and equipment was added to allow the biker to scout ahead of the main deathwatch and survive.

869676_sm-Blood%20Swords%20Deathwatch%20

The shoulder pad was created by filing and carefully bending a sword from an old DA icon and then adding 3 blood drops made from plasticard. Again, simple but effective.

Novamarine Deathwatch Veteran

881230_sm-Deathwatch%20Novamarine%20Fron

881231_sm-Deathwatch%20Novamarine%20Righ

I love the bases that I've found for the Assault squad - fun to paint up!

White Scar Deathwatch Veteran

881233_sm-Deathwatch%20White%20Scar%20Fr

881235_sm-Deathwatch%20White%20Scar%20Le

881234_sm-Deathwatch%20White%20Scar%20Ri

Skull Bearer Deathwatch Veteran

881244_sm-Deathwatch%20Skull%20Bearer%20

881243_sm-Deathwatch%20Skull%20Bearer%20

https://images.dakka...Bearer Rear.JPG

I used an Armorcast missile launch part on this trooper and I am really happy with how the "blast" has turned out.
