I figured I would start this thread to track my work on my Deathwatch army.
Although my primary army is guard, the release of the veteran kit got me interested in starting a Deathwatch army.
Here is my army as it stands, a ton of models, though many are not finished.
Edit 9/11: changed the army picture since most of the models in the original have been torn apart the make way for the the new ones.
Here is my favorite model so far
Here just a little picture of the guard army backing them up
Next two pictures are not my work. These model were done by den of Imagination. While most of what I post in this thread will be my work, I do have outstanding orders with DOI, some of which will get posted in this thread.
This is a picture of the well painted guard army backing them up.
You can find more picture of my guard in my signature
And here is Kill team Cassius
This next section is what I'm currently working on.
If you look closely at the army picture, there are no Primaris Marines. The customization of the Veterans is what brought into the Deathwatch in the first place and I was not a fan with how GW handled the the introduction of Primaris units. That being said, I think that Primaris will eventually replace normal marines and I've started the long process of preparing my Veterans for the future and if Primaris marine were to eventually get access to veteran weapons, all the better for me.
In this project I am combining the Reiver kit with the Veteran kit. Rules wise, they are still Veterans. For the first batch I have made some marine to be used more the kill team game which has more loadout restrictions. So no storm bolters or breachers yet. Pretty much every part went on really well.
Here is a Vanguard Veteran conversion I made. with the recent buff to hand flamers in the faq (d3 -> d6 shots) he should be a worthy inclusion to any veteran squad.
I'm currently holding off on painting. I doubt the new contrast paints will be very good for Deathwatch marines, but I might as well wait to find out for sure.
