Aaaaaand I started another 40K army. This time it is deathwatch. I like them because I can practice freehanding so many different chapter pads, and as an elite army I don't need 100+ models. I'm excluding the "big 12" (the 9 founding chapters, crimson fists and black templars - yes that is 11 but I'm vetoing ultramarines twice).

 

At the moment I am going with the following army (all have power swords unless specified otherwise): roughly 1980 points

 

Battalion Detachment

Watch Master - Storm Wardens (guardian spear)

Librarian - Red Hunters (force sword)

 

Kill Team 1

Sgt - Night Watch (storm bolter)

Vet - Raptors

Vet - Emperor's Spears

Vet - Genesis Chapter
Vet - Exemplars

Vet w/ frag cannon - Helion Legion

Razorback (TL assault cannons)

 

Kill Team 2

Sgt - Soul Drinkers (storm bolter)

Vet - Angels of Iron

Vet - Marines Malevolent

Vet - Mentor Legion
Vet - Mantis Warriors

Vet w/ frag cannon - Emperor's Scythes

Razorback (TL assault cannons)

 

Kill Team 2

Sgt - Storm Giants (storm bolter)

Vet - Lamentors

Vet - Iron Snakes

Vet - Death Strike
Vet - Relictors

Vet w/ frag cannon - Emperor's Shadows

Razorback (TL assault cannons)

 

Vanguard Detachment

Chaplain - Angels Penitent (storm bolter)

 

Vanguard Squad

Sgt - Executioners (power axe, plasma pistol)

Vet - Minotaurs (grav pistol)

Vet - Space Sharks (grav pistol)

Vet - Sons of Orar (plasma pistol)

Vet - Flame Eagles (plasma pistol)

 

Terminator Squad

Sgt - Sons of Medusa (fist/melta)

Vet - Dragon Lords (missiles)

Vet - Emperor's Shadows

Vet - Consecrators

Vet - Fire Angels ?

 

Primaris Medic - Celestial Lions

 

Land Raider

 

I do want to know if vehicles are lent as marines are or if they are specifically owned by deathwatch.

 

Test work so far

Good job on the Deathwatch kill team.

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.

Nice KT.

 

In answer to your query, as far as I know, Deathwatch materiel is owned by them, so Rhinos, Blackstars, etc are theirs.

"As he landed, he allowed the momentum to carry him into a roll forward, bullet impacts spattering him with fractured shale and sand.  He stood from the tumble and drew what was jokingly called his combat knife.  It was closer in form to a Kukri, stretched to the proportions of a machete.  In truth, a bastard of both, with the grace of neither, the razor keen edge smiled wickedly in the half-light of the canyon, the single molecule sharpness enough to shear body from soul."

I haven't been very active on here lately due to a crapload of real life problems in the last month, but I haven't given up.

Where´s the front ramp/door at land raider at? It´s quite a chore to get them on place if you make mistake and glue sides first.

I like the fact those Razorback turrets can elevate to engage flyers, enemies on hills and rooftops, and other such targets. Did you have to kitbash them, or will the Razorback kit be fine right out the box

The guns are "light gatling guns" from Blood & Skulls. I just cut the barrels off the heavy bolters and glued them on. There wasn't anything complicated to the conversion.

I like the tartan on the watch commander, it's a nice little touch that adds a lot of character.

Did you convert the turrets for the razorbacks?  If so how did you do it?

Ooops I didn't read your description above about how you did it.  I think it is a great idea, I plan on having 3 razorbacks in my blood angels army all armed with the twin linked assault cannons so this will save me some money for sure!

They are Blood & Skull (ebay) short barrel gatling guns. I cut off the heavy bolter barrels and glued these on the fronts.
