After a month-long hobby hiatus, I'm ready to resume work on the project I started during March 2017. A few of the Europe-based B&C staff members, both active and retired, are getting together at Warhammer World later this year for a weekend of gaming and getting to know each other. As usual, I was trying to figure out how in the name of Terra I was going to be able to play games without an army. After brainstorming a few ideas, I settled with the following project: collect, build, and fully paint a 500-point force of Legio B&C Astartes, each one representing a member of the B&C staff, using the rules from Codex: Deathwatch.
 
A few days later, I had the following done:

HQ:

Librarian [100 pts]
w/ Mastery Level 2, auspex

Troops:
Veteran Squad #1 [160 pts]
WarriorFish [Watch Sergeant] (Legio Venator)
w/ combi-plasma, melta bombs
 
Captain Idaho [Veteran] (Ultramarines)
w/ boltgun
 
Aquilanus [Veteran] (Rainbow Warriors)
w/ boltgun
 
Olis [Veteran] (Conflagrators)
w/ Volkite caliver [count-as plasma gun]
 
Dosjetka [Veteran] (Imperial Fists)
w/ frag cannon
 
Veteran Squad #2 [160 pts]
Isiah [Watch Sergeant] (Dark Angels)
w/ combi-plasma, melta bombs
 
Brother Casman [Veteran] (Blood Ravens)
w/ boltgun
 
Excessus [Veteran] ("Blank")
w/ boltgun
 
Gillyfish [Veteran] (Dark Angels)
w/ plasma gun
 
Dam13n [Veteran] ("Blank")
w/ frag cannon
 
Fast Attack:
 
Vanguard Veterans [70 pts]
Jolemai [Vanguard Veteran] (Blood Angels)
w/ power weapon, melta bombs
 
Marshal Mattias [Vanguard Veteran] (Black Templars)
w/ power weapon, melta bombs, storm shield
 
Total: 500 pts

 
I also made an Excel sheet, using the same format as spafe shared here, to help me have good oversight over the project and its progress.
 
In the short time I had before my hiatus, I managed to fully paint one model, Captain Idaho, and almost finish another, WarriorFish. You can see the results of my work below (more pictures in the "hidden" tabs):

I was planning on sharing these with the wider B&C after I had painted a whole squad but... well, you know how it goes. tongue.png
 
Anyway, thank you for looking and I'll be back soon-ish with more!
