Recently I bought a bunch of new primaris models to build a Deathwatch force, really looking forward to building up an army of these guys from chapters all over the Imperium. I have gotten a lot of inspiration from members of this forum, thank you! My WIPs and army blog is here

 

Here is first space marine I have painted since Battle for Maccrage was still in stock!

 

 

Lieutenant Scipio of the Iron Snakes

Thank you so much!

 

BTW your work is a big reason why I entered and am still in the hobby... I remember seeing your truescale Night Lords back when I was just starting out in the hobby a decade ago. Big source of inspiration, thanks!

Awesome! Nice to see the Stars appear again. Lucifer216 has been very busy since 2009 – the Stars are about three or four companies strong (no half measures on Amorica!); but it’s a treat to see them elsewhere too πŸ™‚

Thank you, and thanks so much for the link to his work! Love that chapter and was happy to include them.

 

Still got more on the painting table, but next month I am hoping to finally purchase a Contemptor; thinking of turning him into a Deathwatch marine formerly of the Inheritors chapter.

Brother Loch of the Dark Krakens

Chapter symbol was painted up in yellow instead of 'canon' white because I thought it looked cooler:

First six Deathwatch marines of Sentinel IX are complete!

Excellent work on the Dark Kraken. As for the color, I'm sure you can justify the different Chapter symbol color by claiming, "The right to wear the Golden Kraken is an honor the Dark Krakens Chapter grants members who perform a great feat of valor, comparable to that which will earn an Astra Militarum guardsman the Star of Terra," or something like that.

Thanks! While I was assuming it could just be a chapter company differentiation, the idea of a heraldic honorific has some merit as well.

After a long battle with edge highlighting, my Deathwatch Stalker Anti-Aircraft tank is now complete:

 

gallery_103048_17086_66972.jpg

 

The tank's stormbolter is manned by Brother Jerref of the Yellowjackets:

 

gallery_103048_17086_54939.jpg

 

The tank also can convert to its anti-air missile version, the Hunter:

 

gallery_103048_17086_25524.jpg

 

And due to the fealty my watch fortress has to the forgeworld of Ryza, all battle tanks and vehicles used by my Deathwatch marines originate from Ryza and display its colors:

Great looking.  I really like your use of Necron weapons, adds a great feel.  I question going with chapter colors on a Deathwatch vehicle, crew yes, but the actual vehicle, I think it should have stayed straight Deathwatch.

I see your point. As much as most Deathwatch vehicles do look good in standard red-and-black (Duke Danse Macabre has some good ones) I had adopted a green-and-black theme for my own watch fortress. Same reason why all the weapon casings are painted green.

 

Mostly because I like the color green better than red sweat.gif

The custom-printed transfer turned out pretty good!

The Ork skull is a GREAT addition to the Aggressor's fragstorm grenade launchers.

New kill team member is complete: Brother Xbal of the Brotherhood of the Midnight Sun

Mayan-inspired chapter inspired originates from here.

 

His right arm is magnetized so I can swap out the rifle for a mace.

 

gallery_103048_17086_8656.jpg

 

The stormshield would not have in-game benefits in 40K, but gives me extra options for kill team. 

 

gallery_103048_17086_78354.jpg

 

My best attempt at the chapter symbol. Only the center of the transfer actually worked:

More pictures of all these guys are in my lore and paint blog, as well as the inspiration for the Blood Drinkers chapter symbol. Its has some Aztec-marine and Rogue Trader inspiration.

Brother Diodorus of the Minotaurs

Brother Rau'ganth of the Salamanders (3rd Company)

 

gallery_103048_17086_223560.jpg

 

Chapter symbol is a bit derpy... will probably have to fix it later but its good enough for now.

Brother Giles of the Red Templars
