Good job on the models. The paint is unevenly applied, with rough surfaces; but you can easily justify that by claiming the roughness as the result of weathering- "We are the Emperor's huntsmen, not an aristocratic parasite's concubines! Our time is to be spent facing predator and prey alike in the hunting grounds, not grooming ourselves in the fortress-monastery!"- or intentionally roughly applied to make the Marines more difficult to detect via known sensor technology.

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.

Yea some are repaints that I did without stripping. But too I am going for a beaten/darken appearance.

Journeyman Yarro Dargui


A tall and lean Bloodmoon Hunter who had been seconded to the Deathwatch, his dark redish brown hair and unruly beard set him apart from normally shaven marines of other chapters. Many scars mark the skin of this Astartes who is more verbose than most of his Chapter. Many a time he had been too close to an explosion or his opponent for his usual method of hunt. But these scars were each a lesson he survived and learned from. Each had a story of how he defeated another foe turned prey  for him or his team. 

 

In his mind being a good hunter is being smarter than your prey, seeking out new ways to defeat it and new understandings of its weaknesses. An especially adept Hunter can turn his mind to such tasks easily and use his intellect to solve problems his brawn cannot overcome, though thanks to his armor he compensates for not being one of the stronger hunters. This Journeyman has developed a knack for thinking laterally on the battlefield, having proved himself through a cunning plan or expertly coordinated attack and as such can apply his intelligence to tasks normally governed by muscles and reflexes alone. Yarro during a covert strike managed to get himself separated from his team during the course of the hunt he cleverly developed a series of traps made from his explosives that made him the champion of this particular hunt when he took down the largest of the prey. However both his armor and his own hide was scarred from the encounter.

Trying to think of ideas for more Dataslate for when I do the Iron Gauntlet challenge. I already have several notable people but few have dataslates. My current ideas is to expand on the current Chapter Master, do one up for the 'original' Artificer, and Maybe do a proper Dataslate for the guy above, the Deathwatch guy for my hopefully upcoming participation in another Thread RPG. What do you all think would you guys like these expansions? or Would you guys like some new characters or aspects to the Bloodmoon Hunters? Maybe no more Deathwatch guys and more characters doing Hunter stuff? 

And I still need to think up a story idea/theme to write about for a different part of the challenge. (Writing is the hard part for me, at least in a timely manner. )

I think you should focus your efforts on making the Chapter memorable, e.g., unique characters, unique Chapter rites and rituals, grand battles fought during its history. Deathwatch characters are still their original Chapters' members- they intend to return to those Chapters unless they're blackshields exiled for some transgression- so they're unlikely to add anything to your Chapter.

And I still need to think up a story idea/theme to write about for a different part of the challenge. (Writing is the hard part for me, at least in a timely manner.

I also have difficulties. You have my sympathies, and my wish you will overcome Writer's Block.

Yes you will. I am not sure when or how much but the article at the beginning of this has been my baby for ten years I do not see that changing anytime soon. The recent story I posted for the Iron Gauntlet actually features one of my main elders of this Chapter.
