Thank you! 

 

Love that techmarine. I've long wondered how DW would look if their helmets, in addition to their one shoulderpad, remained in the original chapter colours and this one (even though my understanding is orange is your techmarine colour, not the chapter's) shows it might actually work. I think I'll give it a try with a KillTeam force before I actually try to collect a full 40k army. Your threads (here and in the DW sub) has been a real source of inspiration that's making me realize I might be able to pull it off. Thanks for sharing your work.

 

Yup, orange is the color assigned to the techmarines in my force; it has to do with the fealty they owe to forgeworld Ryza instead of Mars. This would allow me to ally my two Imperium armies should I ever want to happy.png

 

That sounds like a great idea, not enough Deathwatch armies out there!

Got my pictures taken for my next character, my second Watch Captain, Memnon of the Metamarines!

He is from another one of those chapters with zero lore, but it matched the pre-molded shoulderpad symbol perfectly, and now I could theoretically assign him to any warlord trait I wanted to, allowing him to keep up with whatever META he is fielded against rolleyesclean.gif

He comes equiped with a stormshield on his back and can swap out both his magnetized arms. For now he can swap his auto bolt rifle with a powersword.

I also like how he looks with double power swords!

Excellent work on the Metamarine. The Ork skull trophy on his backpack, is a GREAT touch.

I completed this spooky chaplain just in time for Halloween today! 

 

High Executioner Dynamaxes of the Dread Saurians:

Dread Saurians heraldry. This chapter is the creation of Captain Kolbasi on reddit

Here is the new chaplain, along with a few heroes of the Watch!

Again, excellent work. I'm surprised the Chaplain's thunder hammer is so plain; does this reflect the hammer wielder or maker's no-nonsense attitude, which views the decorations seen on most Astartes wargear, as "dead weight"?

Thanks! 

 

The original hammer was very "sigmarized" and it was hard to make an inquisitorial "I" in the miliput I used to cover up the original detail. I also liked how the hammer looked when it was plain, gives him a real no-nonsense attitude.

My first Contemptor Dreadnought is complete: Revered Brother Jorodin of the Inheritors Chapter

 

gallery_103048_17086_194846.jpg

 

“…I was there, brothers, when my masters swore oaths of fealty to the Abomination. Back then, I was but an initiate, a member of the reserve and a marine of low rank and low worth. For my uneasiness, my lack of devotion, I was punished and expelled from their ranks to serve a sentence on the Long Vigil. I then remember when the Pentarchy fell upon my former kin, and the carnage that followed on my homeworld. Though the heretics have ceased to exist, I remained to inherit my chapter’s shame.” – Dreadnought Jorodin of the Inheritors Chapter

 

gallery_103048_17086_224794.jpg

 

The Inheritors Chapter are part of the Some Things Are Best Left Forgotten project, one of the chapters that went over to the side of the Partisans during the War of the False Primarch, and ultimately met their doom at the hands of the Pentarchy. Their Index Asartes article can be found here. Obviously I am a fan and have been enjoying reading the lore posts and looking at all the awesome pictures biggrin.png

 

Banner and trophies sporting a recent kill during campaigns against Hive Fleet Leviathan:

Despite the plastic contemptor being a bit difficult to work with, I loved every stage of this project from sourcing bits, to assembly, to painting. Glad I took my time manetizing his arms so I can swap out many different weapon configurations should I wish too. 

 

gallery_103048_17086_186635.jpg

 

Banner is also magnetized and I can run the dreadnought without it, should I wish him to look more "tactical" sweat.gif

Many more pictures of this guy are in my deathwatch thread
