The Watch Master and Captain are now finished. Here we have Watch Captain Tigris of the Celestial lions armed with a xenophase glaive. He can also be given a jump pack.

 

med_gallery_63725_13961_3414.jpg
 
And a close up of the freehand pad. Honestly i'm not happy with this one but I've done several attempts at it and this is the best I've got.

And the commander of Furor Shield Watch Fortress, Leonidas of the Minotaurs

I am super pleased with this guy, I've put a lot of work into him and i hope it shows.

 

Actually managed to play a 2000 point game over the weekend against some khorne daemons. Started off reasonably well as i shot up the bloodletters and flesh hounds, pretty much wiping them off the board. But then they deep striked skarbrand, a bloodthirster and a squad of 8 juggernaut cavalry. They were brutal and several multicharges from them killed damn near all my army in a turn or 2.

 

This is the list i was working with:

 

Battalion Detachment = 892
 
HQ (2) = 216
Watch Master - 130 (Beacon Angelis Relic and Lord of Hidden Knowledge warlord trait)
Watch Captain, master crafted Boltgun and Xenophase blade - 86
 
Troops = 325
 
Veteran Squad A (5 Marines) - 100
1 Blackshield (free)
5 Stalker Bolters - 20
 
Veteran Squad D (5 Marines) - 108
1 Blackshield (free)
1 Xenophase Blade - 7
5 Power Weapons - 16
 
Veteran Squad E (5 Marines) - 117
1 Blackshield (free)
4 Shotguns - 12
1 Frag Cannon - 25
 
Elites = 127
Vanguard Squad A (5 marines) - 127
5 Power Weapons - 20
3 Storm shields - 15
2 Bolt Pistols - 2
 
Flyers = 224
 
Corvus Blackstar - 224
Assault Cannon - 44
2 Rocket Launchers - 30
 
Battalion Detachment = 1018
 
HQ (2) - 221
Captain Artemis - 130
Chaplain with jump pack and boltgun  - 91
 
Troops = 674
 
Veteran Squad B (5 Marines) - 100
1 Blackshield (free)
5 Stalker Bolters - 20

 

Veteran Squad C (6 Marines) - 108
1 Blackshield (free)
1 Xenophase Blade - 7
5 Power Weapons - 16
5 Boltguns - 5
 
Veteran Squad F (10 Marines) - 266
1 Blackshield (free)
4 Frag Cannons - 100
6 Boltguns - 6
 
Intercessor Squad (10 Marines) - 200
10 Bolt Rifles - 10
10 bolt pistols - 10
 
Elites - 123
Vanguard Squad B (5 marines) - 123
5 Power Weapons - 20
3 Bolt Pistols - 3
2 Storm Shields - 10
 
 
Auxiliary Support Detachment = 90
Vindicare Assassin - 90
 
 
TOTAL = 2000
 
Total Command Points = 12

 

In reserve but not in this list I have:

 

  1. 2 squads of 5 stormbolters and chainswords which are the same points as the stalker squads so I can easily switch those out. Which I would have to do at any GW store or event as my stalker squads use 3rd party parts which aren’t allowed (grumble grumble).
  2. A 5 man squad of combi meltas and chainswords which I would deep strike to take down big vehicle threats. 5 combi meltas can do even a knight a lot of damage and maybe even kill it the turn they drop. Points wise these are 180 so can replace the intercessor squads with no problems.
  3. 3 Agressors
  4. 3 Inceptors
  5. 5 Helblasters
  6. 1 Librarian
  7. 2 Primaris captains
  8. 1 Rhino/Razorback
  9. 3 rievers
  10. The vanguard vets, terminator and biker from squad cassius
  11. 8 more intercessors
  12. Inquisitors Rex, Eisenhorn, Greyfax, Lok and Coteaz

 

So with this list and all these other options what do you think of the list I have and what would you suggest to improve it? 

 

Let me know what you think! biggrin.png

That Xenophase Glaive is a killer idea.  Surprised I haven't seen such a thing before.  You should be very proud of the freehand shoulderpad too, that's an impressive finish on the chapter symbol :)



Seems like these models will never end!

Thanks smile.png I did like the idea of a glaive and i haven't seen it done elsewhere. 

 

I've made a few more now. 3 with chainswords and Combi meltas to make a squad of 5 including the 2 i already have.

 

med_gallery_63725_13961_920656.jpg
 
I've also made 2 with power swords and bolt guns to replace the 2 combi melta marines leaving those squads. Aaaaaand Inquisitor REX!

 

med_gallery_63725_13961_1478744.jpg

 

The one with the claymore is looking really good, i'm looking forward to painting him. I'll update you again when i've painted these. Let me know what you think of them smile.png

Liking the new guys.

 

However, if the one with a claymore ISN'T a Storm Warden, I'm going to be ashamed of you :P

 

How'd you make the claymore Marine's pose? And where'd you get the hands for his claymore from? Or is that all from the Grey Knights kit?

Maybe it is a storm warden..... msn-wink.gif

 

I used the arms from the heavy thunder hammer. The outstretched ones of both sets, the hands are are attached to the grey knights sword.

So many points reductions from chapter approved! What a time to be alive. STORM SHIELDS FOR EVERYONE!!!

 

Ahem. Anyway i've finished the 5 marines from last time. Still working on Hector Rex which could take a while so i'll upload him later.

 

To begin with we have 2 marines with power weapons and boltguns:

 

med_gallery_63725_13961_323173.jpg

 

Angels of Absolution on the Left and (as some people guessed) a storm warden on the left. The storm warden will be the sergeant in my Kill Team games

 

Next we have 3 marines with Combi Meltas and chainswords.

 

med_gallery_63725_13961_797253.jpg

 

Left to right: Black Shield, Death Eagles and a Storm Lord

 

Some close ups:

Storm Lords

Death Eagles

Honestly this batch of freehand hasn't been great. Lot of skulls which i'm still struggle to free hand. Let me know what you think of all these. In the meantime i'll be painting Inquisitor Rex and figuring out how to spend the extra 135 points in my 2k army. biggrin.png

Apologies for the double post, but I did say you should feel very positive about your freehand work.

It could be worse...

Spoiler


For those extra points, I've been tempted to look at some transport.

No decisions made for me as yet, but it's bouncing about in my head!

Hello again and welcome to the continuing adventures of me not painting Inquisitor Rex.

 

I've built a squad of storm bolter and chainsword marines who, due to the points changes in chapter approved, will now be in my 2k list replacing the shotgun squad. The shotguns are cool but just not effective enough, and they're overcosted. I've also put together the Gravis captain from dark imperium with some alterations.

 

med_gallery_63725_13961_1140552.jpg
 
med_gallery_63725_13961_1222904.jpg

 

I'm really pleased with the re purposed grey knight storm bolters. The way i see it the deathwatch probably have enough pull with the Inquisition to acquire the schematics for the wrist mounted versions. I did use different magazines though as i hate the chunky look of the ones you get with them. Also i didn't have any haha. Instead i used the spare drum mags you get with the Anvil sniper rifles (Shhh, don't tell people at GW events). I'm sure they'll be fine, they look kinda similar to the drum mags from the Orlock necromunda gang so i can just say i got them from there.

 

Thanks for the feedback about the free hand by the way guys. I'll keep trying to improve as well! smile.png

 

Here's my post chapter approved 2k list. Let me know what you guys think of it.

Hello Everyone!

 

After a long break i am finally back at painting and have gotten round to painting Inquisitor REX (finally). At some point during the painting though, i discovered that i seemed to think i was painting Lion El'Johnson... So i just went with it.

Good Evening everyone!

 

Comparatively short break compared to last time we have another squad ready! This is the stormbolter and chainsword squad. Pretty please with how they turned out, quite characterful i think smile.png

 

Left to right we have: Taurans, Angels Redeemed and Red Templars

 

med_gallery_63725_13961_714610.jpg

 

Left to Right: Black Shield and Shadow Wolves.
 
med_gallery_63725_13961_252949.jpg

 

I also finished painting up my version of the Dark Imperium gravis captain, he is from the Helion Legion.

Some close ups of the chapter symbols:

Pretty pleased with the freehand ones (Red Templars and Helion Legion).

Excellent wprk. The freehand Chapter symbols look rough, but I'm sure you'll improve as you gain experience.
Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

Hot on the heels of Sunday's update i have some more models for you to review smile.png

 

I've always said building and converting is my favourite part of modelling which is probably why i get through it so much quicker than the painting. Anyways, i present to you the last of Kill Team Cassius! Unfortunately i forgot to take pictures before i sprayed them so they are all undercoated and as a result you can't see the details as well. I'd just like to say these models are fantastic especially Setorax, i could easily use him as a Watch Captain if i felt like it.

 

To begin with we have Edryc Setorax  and Garran Branatar. No particular changes to these two.

 
med_gallery_63725_13961_1500828.jpg

 

Then we have Antor Delassio, Jetek Suberei and Jensus Natorian. Before anyone comments i am aware that Suberei doesn't have a base, i still need to acquire a sector mechanicus biker base so all the models in the army share the same base theme. I have made a few changes to Delassio and Natorian. Delassio has a Power sword and Bolt Pistol instead of his chainsword and hand flamer so he can slot into my vanguard veterans. Natorian just has a bolter instead of a bolt pistol.

 
med_gallery_63725_13961_109015.jpg

 

Finally i have built a Deathwatch Smash captain! This guy was a bit of a nightmare to put together. I used the 2008 games day captain as the base which was a metal slotta base model. I'd forgotten how much i hate working with metal, it's a nightmare to convert, getting the hammer to stay in place was extremely fiddly and even then the hands are slightly dislocated... all things considered though i am pretty pleased with how it's turned out.

 

med_gallery_63725_13961_32319.jpg

 

I've also recently tweaked my list to include the chapter approved changes and this is where i am at now:

 

Battalion Detachment = 978
 
HQ
Watch Master - 130 (Beacon Angelis Relic and Lord of Hidden Knowledge warlord trait)
Watch Captain, master crafted Boltgun and Xenophase blade - 86
 
Troops
 
Veteran Squad A (5 Marines) - 92
1 Blackshield
5 Stalker Bolters 
5 Chainswords
 
Veteran Squad D (5 Marines) - 100
1 Blackshield
1 Xenophase Blade
4 Power Weapons 
5 Bolters
 
Intercessor Squad (5 Marines) - 90
5 Bolt Rifles 
5 Bolt Pistols
Grenade Launcher
1 Chainsword
 
Veteran Squad E (5 Marines) - 152
1 Blackshield
5 Combi Meltas
5 Chainswords
 
Elites
Vanguard Squad A (5 marines) - 109
5 Power Weapons
2 Storm shields
3 Bolt Pistols
 
Flyers
 
Corvus Blackstar - 219
Assault Cannon 
2 Rocket Launchers 
Hurricane Bolter
 
Battalion Detachment = 936
 
HQ
Watch Captain with Jump Pack - 114
- Thunder Hammer
- Bolt Pistol
 
Chaplain with jump pack and boltgun  - 91
 
Troops
 
Veteran Squad B (5 Marines) - 90
5 Stalker Bolters 

 

Veteran Squad C (5 Marines) - 100
1 Blackshield
1 Xenophase Blade
4 Power Weapons 
5 Boltguns 
 
Veteran Squad F (10 Marines) - 248
1 Blackshield 
4 Frag Cannons
6 Boltguns
10 Chainswords
 
Intercessor Squad (5 Marines) - 90
5 Bolt Rifles 
5 Bolt Pistols
Grenade Launcher
1 Chainsword
 
Veteran Squad (5 Marines) - 92
5 Storm Bolters
5 Chainswords
Blackshield
 
Elites 
Vanguard Squad B (5 marines) - 111
5 Power Weapons 
2 Bolt Pistols 
3 Storm Shields 
 
 
TOTAL = 1914
 
Total Command Points = 13
 
I left 85 reinforcement points to use the new "Operative Requisition Sanctioned" strategem at the start of the game to get ANY of the 4 vastly improved assassins depending on which army i am facing. I cannot express how awesome this is biggrin.png .
 
Please let me know what you think of the models and this updated list! Have a great evening!

Good evening everyone!

 

I've completed the last of squad cassius now. Here they all are:

 

Antor Delassio

Edryc Setorax
med_gallery_63725_13961_792054.jpg

Jetek Suberei (now with added base)
med_gallery_63725_13961_44386.jpg

 

 

The Smash Captain is done as well. I'm quite pleased with how these turned out, i tried a new power weapon effect on Branatar's power fist, Natorian's sword and the smash captains hammer which has worked quite well. 

 

med_gallery_63725_13961_589757.jpg
 
Here's a close up of the chapter symbol, he's from White Templars.

I'm quite excited about the upcoming shadowspear boxed set. I know there's no rules for us to include them so far but i can see the Vanguard all taking the black. tongue.png

Good evening everyone!

 

Today's update is a rare one, a Vehicle! I'm not much of a fan of making and painting vehicles, it's a lot of time and effort and depending on the vehicle they aren't that interesting to paint. Anyway, here is a Deathwatch Razorback.

 

med_gallery_63725_13961_658149.jpg

 

It's using the forge world extra Armour and inquisition front plate with doors which make it much more interesting. I've bought a lightbox so i can take some better pictures for you all. I've left a lot of the parts unglued so i can choose the loadout and have it as a rhino if i want.

 

med_gallery_63725_13961_122124.jpg

 

The techmarine in the cupola is from the Aurora Chapter

 

IMG 20190325 213705

 

I also bought some arco flagellants and an acolyte from GW direct for a bit of a change. I always liked the arco flagellant models.

 

med_gallery_63725_13961_237044.jpg

 

Let me know what you think of this update. I'll have more for you tomorrow biggrin.png

Today we have 5 Infiltrators from Shadowspear taking the black. And an Ancient from Dark Imperium.

They come complete with the usual conversion bits so they look the part. I'm pretty excited to be able to use these in a game, 2 squads of 5 and a vanguard captain and you can deny enemy deep strike to most of your side of the board! Which is fantastic against genestealer cults and other deep strike heavy armies. Also pretty good at keeping the updated assassins at arms length a bit longer. Sadly we can'ts use them in the deathwatch yet and to be fair they are far too expensive for me to want to use them right now. I expect them to drop at least a few points and then get access to special issue ammunition for the 1 point bolter tax. Then i'd be quite happy to use them instead of the intercessors i have at the moment.

 

Let me know what you think and feel free to speculate on their chapters of origin. biggrin.png

Yeah, we can`t. But anyway we can use them as allies of deatwatch by making them as any other chapter which have rules for them. So not a big deal atm IMHO =) I`m going to run them exactly as I mentioned here (maybe as Ravenguard detachment).

I've given each of them a name on the base which i'm trying out. I'm not sure if i like it though, let me know what you guys think of it.

Here's close ups of the banner and the chapter symbols:

Good evening everyone biggrin.png

 

Today i bring you the hellblasters from dark imperium and the vanguard librarian from Shadowspear. All converted to the deathwatch! For the hellblasters i tried some object source lighting from the plasma guns, just on the guns themselves and on the right arm a bit. Here they are:

 

Left to right = Crimson Fists, Preators of Orpheus and Hawk Lords

Left to Right = Angels of Iron and Angels of Vengeance

Librarian Ashok of the Angels Sanguine. I went with the same urban camo scheme that i used on my stalker bolter sergeant a while back (see earlier in the thread)

Also quite pleased with this power sword effect, tried something a little different

Let me know what you think of this update! I've tried some new techniques so i'd like some feedback or tips on those. Still not sure on the names on bases yet haha. Keep an eye on the thread, thanks to a recent forge world order arriving there will be something BIG next time msn-wink.gif
