The above would likely be acceptable, but I have a few comments (as a former TO myself):

 

1) Raptor Green with Deathwatch pauldrons and iconography should be no issue - I would allow this for sure. Just make sure not only paint but models/bits are distinctive between this detachment and your Raven Guard one.

 

2) BA SCD - Personally, I don't feel you need to bring in elements of Red/Gold and Blonde hair to justify this. I would however bring in some thematic element to justify their savagery in comparison to the chapter-at-large. I had considered a similar detachment to run alongside my Raven Guard, and for my "head cannon" I was considering running my BA SCD as Moruturi/Moritats and giving them an appropriate amount of corvia and other grim/death related icnongoraphy. The parellels between Death Company and Moritats are definitely present. Alternatively, you could review the various Blood Angel successors and use one of their paint schemes (I feel like the burgunday/black of Flesh Tearers would pair nicely alongside olive drab). Remember: The key is to have them be distinctive and visibly different (at a glance) from 3-4ft away.

 

3) You can definitely do this. As other's have mentioned, if you use Lias, you can't use the RG Warlord Trait/Relics. You can however paint in Raptors olive drab, use Shrike, RG Warlord Traits and Relics, if you DONT use Lias (this is under the rules as counts-as). There are lots of Salamander green Ultramarine armies out there. :)

 

The key is to just have each detachment visibly different, at a glance, from a tabletop distance. If the difference is to subtle, you will get flak/push-back from players, especially those you beat that are sore losers.

Yeah I'll need to make sure it's not just the left shoulder pad icon that's different, but I'll add a small amount of highlight colour (different from the green) to indicate their detachment.

 

Dark Red for BA, Black for Deathwatch. Possibly on the kneepad behind their squad number.

Those JP are giant looking.  That's not a bad thing :lol:  The preview pics don't really help me so I'm looking forward to seeing your work with them.

I like the jet packs. They’re definitely scaled for Primaris models. I’ll probably grab something like it with wings when I start doing characters and my counts as Shrike.

Those things are huge... wow... I do like the chainsword that they're showing on the guy with the jump pack. That would make a sweet Teeth of Terra.

Smash Captain assembled and undercoated.

 

Spoiler

 

 

Same with the Librarian Dreadnought.

 

Spoiler

 

 

Watch Master also done (the gravis captain I converted him from was already mostly painted).

 

Spoiler

 

 

Also did an Interrogator Chaplain for another list I want to try out.

 

Spoiler

 

 

Nearly finished the ancient and company vets with the big jumpacks. Will post them when undercoated.

 

Have the 3 squads of DW Intercessor/Aggessor/Inceptors/Hellblasters assembled too. Need to undercoat them though.

 

See page 1 re: the explanation for Blood Angels detachment as Raptors Moritat and the Deathwatch detachment.

 

 

I'll work on updating the Raven Guard detachment with the Shadowspear box once I know their points values.

I love the camouflage pattern on the Watch Master's cape.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' 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.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

Thanks! I plan on replicating it on all the other cloaks - like for the Phobos units.

 

Looking back at those photos, the undercoats look terrible close up like that :)

Need to clean up the paint job though, really shows up all the flaws in these close up photos smile.png

The Intercessor is well-painted.

New flight stands arrived yesterday for my Inceptors, sick of the crappy stands GW gives us...

 

Assault Bolters are below, doing the Plasma ones today.

 

Not sure if I should paint it a grey / white / smoke colour or a yellow / orange / red flame colour.
