Hello Everyone!
 
Been out the hobby for about 7 years and decided recently the Deathwatch are the army to get me back into it. Decided to record my progress as i go. I'll be adding some inquisition as well when I've got them time. But first i decided to make up some Primaris Deathwatch to get me started. I really wanted to see what the new primaris models were like and thought i might as well make them Deathwatch. Probably won't get any more though, just normal size after this. Here are some pics!
 
 

Deathwatch Primaris

 
Did a fair bit of conversion work on the basic intercessors to get them to be deathwatch. Added the shoulder pads and the elbow detail on the left arms, sculpted shot selectors into the boltguns, filed of the chest eagles and replaced them with pouches, grenades and bullets and sliced up the right arms to incorporate the wrist scanner.
 
Here's a close up of the Sergeant

Prior to this i painted up some random servitors i had unpainted from years and years ago as Inquisition for practice.
 

Inquisitorial Servitors

 

Inqusitorial Staff

 
I'll post more when i've painted the primaris squad. Let me know what you all think!

 

Also if someone could show me how to resize these images from the Gallery i'd be grateful.

Those are some pretty cool conversions.  They should look pretty sweet with some paint too!

Hi Everyone

 

Made some progress! I've painted up the Primaris marines now ans also re-based them on Sector Mechanicus bases. You might notice one of them has lighter black highlights which was the first one i painted, didn't like it so i went with a darker grey on the rest. 

 

Primaris Deathwatch - Painted

 

Here is a close up of one of the painted ones. And a close up of the detail on the shoulder pads. I thought that other chapters would probably not want to send Primaris off to the deathwatch when they just got them so i reckon Gulliman sent a bunch of the Unnumbered Sons to the Deathwatch for them to use and would paint the symbol of the watch fortress on their shoulder pads in place of a chapter symbol. I went with Furor Shield.

Furor Shield
 
 
Finally here are 5 deathwatch veterans i just assembled and spraypainted. Nothing particularly special with these 5, just a few arm and hand re-positioning, some weapon swaps ect.
 
Deathwatch Veterans
 

Again let me know what you all think!

 

(Also can someone PLEASE let me know how to re-size these images, i upload them to the gallery and them add them to the thread)

Somehow seeing those older heavy weapon-servitors always puts a smile on my face. I don´t know why exactly, but somehow I like them.

Cool Deathwatch so far and I´m jealous of your  greenstuffing skills! So far I can´t really make anything decent which has edges with it... dry.png

@Of the night

The weaknesses I can see in your list are low mobility and almost absent anti armour weapons

I think some bikers and a couple of razorbacks with TL Lascannons would help.

Also some stormshields and termies in your kill team would help the survivability.

I see your point about the anti-armour, it's why i plan on using all the the combi weapons i have to make combi Meltas. I could add a few of those in veteran squads C, D and F. I have a razorback i could add. The only Terminator and Biker i have is the ones that come with kill team cassius so i don't have any i could really add there.

So you need to get the meltas in range, maybe put a TL heavy bolter on the razorback load the melta team, and push forward.
Corvus will be a target for all enemy long range weapons, and it wont survive long, but it is a distraction, enough to get the razorback close and alive. Advance, hide it and pop smoke. Next turn unload and fire

I would put the one terminator in the frag kill team to absorb some low ap fire, and 1/2 stormshields to absorb multidamage high ap fire. 120points is a big investment, protecting it is a must. The problem is that Brannatar is expensive for that. Stormbolter and powersword costs 6pts....heavyflamer+meltafist much more.

I like the vindicare assassin, have one in my army too...very useful to take down characters

Love this, Of the Night, you're a man after my own heart!

See my sig-link to the Watcher Keep stuff I've been doing - it's comprised almost entirely of 'non-celebrity' chapters, which sounds suitably obscure. The most well-known ones are likely the Mortifactors, Silver Skulls and Star Dragons, but I've got plenty of odder (and, indeed, home-brew) ones in there too.

As your freehand looks a lot better than mine, I'd love to see what you could do with the Star Phantoms icon!

---

Otherwise, sounds like a really fun list you're putting together. Getting a rhino/RB or two in there to make sure you can get from A to B (and thereby get those combi-meltas used optimally) might help, but it sounds like others have you covered on that front.

A star Phantom is on  my list! Gonna be a difficult one to freehand though. I'll also be doing a silver skull and Artemis will be my mortifactor. Might be a while till my next deathwatch models, i've got Execution Force so the Assassins are up next!

Hello Again!

 

Just finished painting the contents of the Execution Force board game. Gotta say the Assassin's are brilliant models.

 

SAM 0436
 
Not sure about the brightness of the black highlight, not best pleased with how the phase sword turned out either. Still, not bad overall.
 
Next up are the Chaos team, i wen't with the word bearers as the colour scheme.

Evening everyone

 

Got a few more marines i managed to put together over the weekend. After emailing the guys at the warhammer world events team i found that if the army list says chainsword they have to have a chainsword and not a power weapon to be tournament worthy, so i had to convert a few to fit. I'd rather have them all modelled with power weapons but oh well. Also got my first frag cannon put together.

 

SAM 0439

 

Let me know what you think. Any guesses on the chapters?

Not sure on the others, but the middle guy is a Carcharodon, or I'm a heretic! :lol:

 

Very cool to see your chapter symbols hand-sculpted, though.  Can't wait to see what's next :)

Hello again everyone. Finished painting up the last 5 marines. Here they are, left to right Doom Eagle, Black Shield, Carcharodon, Marines Malevolent, Silver Skull.

 

SAM 0445

 

Here's a closeup of the 2 sculpted chapter symbols and one freehand. I tried to sculpt the Marines Malevolent but i couldn't get it to work. I think going forward i'm gonna decide to freehand or sculpt on a case by case basis.

 

SAM 0446
SAM 0452
SAM 0449

 

Also managed to make another 5 marines AND one Inquisitor Greyfax.

Evening everyone. So since we've had the Deathwatch codex announced i've been slowing down a bit until we know what the changes are and if i need to switch up my list and models. Thankfully all the stuff i've done so far is general enough i could use it in any list. Fingers crossed for mission tactics to make a comeback! For my money deathwatch has always been about a small force of extremely flexible and adaptable tactics. The variety of chapters and specialist training should enable them to instantly switch up their tactics to deal with any threat and i think the rules should represent this. Mission tactics in 7th was at least a step in the right direction. I imagine they'll do it with stratagems this time though.

 

In any case, on to some models! Here we have the painted versions of the last 5 marines.

 

SAM 0468
 
From left to right they are: Sons of Medusa, Destroyers, Star Phantoms and Ultramarines and Space wolves form the Cassius kill team.
 
Close up's of the Sons of Medusa, Destroyers and Star Phantoms chapter symbols. I think the medusa came out okay, it's a modified novamarines sculpted shoulder pad. The destroyers didn't turn out brilliantly, i think i made the skull to big and it didn't leave enough room. The star phantoms turned out much better than i expected though!
 
SAM 0469
SAM 0470
SAM 0471
 
And last but most certainly not least, Inquisitor Greyfax!
 
SAM 0473
 
This is the first character i've done since the 7 year break so i but a fair amount of work into it. I'm interested to know what you all think. :)

I really like the different paint scheme, and you aced the paintjob on her eye!  How many attempts did that take for you? huh.png

Honestly it was a first attempt! I think i'm getting a lot better at Freehand, my hands are a lot steadier than they used to be. I wanted to make my freyfax a bit unique so i went with a grey almost white Armour and you can't really tell from the picture but the cloak is yellow. I'm quite Pleased with how she turned out :)
