What paints did you use for the brass on the front of your shield please?

Looks good dude, love the storm black and wearbon the armour.
Not sure on the base though, it's very stark.

Finished up Vet number 2.

The Brass is actually gold.  Just weathered a little bit.  

 

Its the retributor gold washed a few times and highlighted with gold and then followed up with some silver.

 

As far as the bases go... They are very simple but I tried to match it with the weather powder I have that would stand out the most on black armor.

Great start, models look gritty which I like and the bases really contrast the black armour.

 

What plans do you have for your Watch?

Love it, great weathering on the armour - how have you done it?

The weathering is actually very simple.  All I do is take a small piece of sponge and put a little bit of metallic paint and use to to place simple scratches where they would be most common.  I follow this up with a brighter metallic paint and pick out some edges and add some longer scratches.  Then I use some weather powders that Ive had laying around forever.  I follow it all up with a nice matte coat. 

 

Im not 100% sure what my plans are for my watch but I have this first squad planned out and im waiting on a twin linked assault cannon for my razorback. 

 

This first squad has all bolters, 3 storm shields and a couple power swords.  Just a basic relatively inexpensive squad to start with.

I am going to be adding a Corvus because the models are just fantastic and they are solid in game.

It is a shame the twin assault cannon does not come as a standard in the box option.

The storm shields look really good, just not sure how effective such a squad would be on the table.

Have you gave any thoughts as to the overall list yet?

Yea its a serious pain.  An expensive pain.  I picked one up for about 20$.  Which is half the cost of the entire kit!

I am planning on having a captain as one of my HQ choices.  Im going to convert Ennox Sorrlock into a captain with Jump pack but im not sure what weapon load out to go with.  If im going to use him with the beacon what should I give him?  Storm shield and a melee weapon?  Maybe a thunderhammer?

It's a shame we are so limited on our hq customization options.
Definitely the thunder hammer, only way to make him a real threat.

I quite like two lightning claws, the re-roll ones to hit and re-roll wounds makes them quite efficient at deleting units. I give him the beacon, ds him in then drag 10 hellblasters over 👍 normally only works once on a player 😁

Ive really contemplated going with dual lightening claws.  It looks awesome and can be pretty strong.  Do you pair him with a unit of vanguard vets?

So ive successfully sold my Tau!  That means I can buy some more stuff!  What should I buy next?

 

Im for sure going to pick up a Watch Master.

 

Should I buy a redemptor or a Blackstar?

In my eyes every pure deathwatch force should have at least 1 corvus in the force.
It's our most iconic unit and is one of our only delivery systems for terminators.

It is a great model. I sold my first painted one, and I have another I started... just waiting on the codex before completing it though. I think you're going to love painting it.

Ive looked at the kit quite a bit and it looks like it should be "easy" to paint.  I ordered some pigment fixer this morning to weather vehicles so when I finish my 6th Vet I can get started on their razorback.

@Prot does the Blackstar come with a transfer sheet?  The stock images show some skulls with the Inquisition I.

I ordered some door panels from the Corvus to use on my razorbacks.  They are a little bit smaller but they will work.  Ill post some pics of the completed squad and razorback assembled and ready to go.

A couple bolter/shield guys would be a good option in a squad that has a couple frag cannons in it to tank high AP wounds for the squad.
