Hello everyone!

 

I've been working on this army for a long while and thought i should post it here to see what you all think. I always like to get comments and constructive criticism on my work so please let me know what you think of them all! I've taken some photos of the whole set plus i've added the photos from my entry to Armies on Parade last year. If you want to see any of the models in more detail let me know and i can add photos of them, OR you can check out my other topic in the deathwatch forum here. I'll be updating this as build and paint more models, the first update is already below!

 

I've arranged the army in a rough outline of the watch fortress structure, they all have the correct squad designations on their kneepads and i've got an excel sheet to record who is in which squad! Almost all of them are from different chapters as well (another reason for the excel spreadsheet) I like to make them all a bit unique with the names and chapter background, i endeavor to add some elements of their home chapter to the model but after the 50 most well known ones it gets difficult! So i come up with a feel for their chapter from the name, colour scheme or what i decided to make up for them. I like to add little details like that, as you can see from the photos i am very fond of converting. All of them have the deathwatch wrist scanner, shoulder pad and elbow pad, where possible i also give them the ammo pouches and more! My goal is to build a deathwatch version of every unit currently available to them! So if you can't see something in these photos i will build one eventually!

I wanted to show off these ones unpainted so you can see some of the work i've put in. I've put together some eliminators! As before they are on the base size they deserve, it makes no sense for them to be on 40mm bases when they wear the same armour as reivers and infiltrators.  As usual i've added the wrist scanners and elbow decoration to make them look more deathwatchy

 

med_gallery_63725_13961_53504.jpg

 

As you can see i've carved out the plain shoudlers and replaced them with slightly covered deathwatch pads, it was a bit difficult to get them to sit right but i think it's come off okay.

 

med_gallery_63725_13961_311216.jpg

 

The next two eliminators are a little different, i built them using reiver bodies! As you may have seen elsewhere online it's a cheaper and easier way of adding a couple of extras to the squad without grabbing another box of eliminators. You get enough parts in the box to convicingly get 2 more reiver based eliminators with a bit of work!

 

med_gallery_63725_13961_729541.jpg

 

As you can see, they aren't perfect. I've had to green stuff the capes and one backpack. Plus the right knees of both. I'm still pretty pleased with them though! Here's the cloaks from the back. I think they will look better painted

 

med_gallery_63725_13961_70279.jpg

 

Not bad for my first attempt at sculpting capes! I'll do better next time though. But this isn't all! I also have a primaris techmarine!!!! I ****ing love this kit, i've been wanting a plastic techmarine for YEARS and this one is pretty perfect. Added a few alterations as you can see, the big one being a necron clutched in the servo claw!

 

med_gallery_63725_13961_321602.jpg

 

Really looking forward to painting these, i will post them as soon as i'm done!!! Let me know what you think!

Excellent work here!  Great touches to put so much effort into individualising and organising your entire army, making sure you have a bit of everything.  The macro shots make them look like epic versions!

 

With regards to the Eliminators, keeping them on the larger base could have given you more base customisation options (adding in a little bit of scenery or flooring).  Keep an eye out for the latest Imperium magazine for some cheaper Eliminators and other stuff - including some Necrons to add underfoot / in claws.

Yeah i definitely could add more base details with the large bases. I just prefer them to be on the base size appropriate for their size. I doesn't make sense to me why characters and line infantry have different base sizes despite wearing the same armour. Same goes for the eliminators. Could be an issue in games though so i plan to pick up some base enlarger ring things. 

 

I think i've got enough eliminators for now but i will be getting a few issues of warhammer imperium for the firestrike turret, ATV and outriders (one of which i will convert into a biker chaplain) tongue.png

Happy Saturday everyone! 

 

I've got the next set painted up, only took 3 weeks this time lol! Better than i've been doing recently but not as good as sometimes, i just don't have the drive to paint as much at the moment.

 

Anyway, here they are! Some deathwatch Eliminators:

 

Left to right : Imperial Harbingers and Victors

med_gallery_63725_13961_258238.jpg

 

Left to right: Guardians of Celeres, Silver Eagles and the Dark Crusaders

 

med_gallery_63725_13961_908509.jpg

 

Plus here is a shot of the camo cloaks, i went for an urban camouflage design to match their urban bases. I managed to make the deathwatch pads visible on all of them but i could only make the chapter symbols clear on 5 of them, the Victors and Dark crusarders sybols are partially covered with the cloak.

med_gallery_63725_13961_424094.jpg

 

In addition here is a primaris techmarine with a necron clutched in his servo arm! This guy is from the Star Dragons. I tried to do an object source lighting from the light on the base but it hasn't come out very well (why it's not shown here) green OSL is difficult to pull off. I'll go blue or yellow next time. The necron is from the sunset dynasty lol, completely made up. I just wanted something bright to contrast with the servo arm, otherwise it'd be difficult to tell it apart.

 

med_gallery_63725_13961_811584.jpgsml_gallery_63725_13961_198798.jpg

 

Finally here is some close ups of the pads (the ones not covered by a cloak anyway).

 

Star Dragons, not too bad but not great either

sml_gallery_63725_13961_196591.jpg

 

Imperial Harbingers

sml_gallery_63725_13961_91279.jpg

 

Guardians of Celeres, nice and easy using a transfer for the skull and then painting the rest

sml_gallery_63725_13961_146924.jpg

 

Silver Eagles

sml_gallery_63725_13961_27354.jpg

 

 

That's all for this time folks! Please let me know what you think of them in the comments :) Also i'm thinking of setting up an instagram account, is that something people would be interested in?

Got this next lot done pretty quick! I've been feeling much more in the mood for painting recently which could be to do with my new instagram page! Please go give it a follow!

 

https://www.instagra...nyx_warpainter/

 

This time i've painted up 6 eradicators. You'll notice i've converted the meltas. I can't claim the credit for this idea though! I saw it here : 

https://www.google.c...tor_conversion/

 

I had found the melta rifles a bit boring so this was a great idea which i completely ripped off. I wanted to be able to field a 5 man squad in an indomitor kill team so I have the indomitus and multi part kit models. Can you guess which are which? Here they are!

 

Left to right: Angels Porphyr, Black Vipers and Prime Absolvers

med_gallery_63725_13961_30826.jpg

 

What I wasn't pleased with though is the snake additions to the one in the middle. I tried to get a snake head on his helmet which worked out okay but the snakeskin loincloth isn't great. You can also see where I've done some battle damage to the helmet which is because I accidentally melted half of it with plastic glue. 

 

 

Left to Right: Doom Legion, Marines Exemplars and Auric Patricians.

med_gallery_63725_13961_664836.jpg

 

As always here are some up close shots of the chapter symbols. 

 

 

Marines Exemplar

Doom Legion (just when i thought i was getting good at skulls this happens!)

sml_gallery_63725_13961_222180.jpg

 

Prime Absolvers

sml_gallery_63725_13961_130705.jpg

 

Black Vipers (now THIS i am veryyyy please with)

sml_gallery_63725_13961_1715.jpg

 

Angels Porphyr

sml_gallery_63725_13961_160573.jpg

 

Auric Patricians (this skull isn't too bad though)

Please let me know what you think of everything!!! Comments and criticism are very welcome

Like your capes and your free hand. I admire the bravery to attempt something you haven't done before! And I think it turned out really well.
Its, "space wolf," not "Space Wolf," or "SPACE WOLF," or "spacewolf" I'm the only Astartes cool enough to spell his name without capital letters! But if you're feeling decorous, you may add a "THE" in front of it.

I think the free hand is great for developing my skill, it forces me to paint without the guide of the model itself. I am quite pleased with the capes but where i sculpted them on the model next time i would sculpt them separately and then attach them.

I've found you want to sculpt the general shape off of the model. Then attach it and sculpt in the fine details around the shoulders, etc.

Hello again everyone!

 

Today i bring you some inceptors, a lieutenant and an AMBOT

 

First off we have the inceptors, not done a huge amount to them to be fair, i think i was just a bit burned out that day or i couldn't think of what to do to convert them.

 

 

Left to right Atlantean Spears, Angels of Defiance and Void Tridents

med_gallery_63725_13961_1039090.jpg

 

Did a bit of OSL on the plasma guns, what do you think?

 

Here we have Zerin of the Astral Hounds (not a space wolf!). They will be a primaris lieutenant in the rare occasion I actually need a lieutenant, but I could always use them as an intercessor sergeant.

 

med_gallery_63725_13961_438071.jpgmed_gallery_63725_13961_933453.jpg

 

 

And last but CERTAINLY not least we have the inquisitorial AMBOT!!!! Codename "Thresh" They will be part of my inquisitors retinue because why the hell not! Tried something a bit different with the painting and I think it shows 

 

med_gallery_63725_13961_414207.jpgmed_gallery_63725_13961_932428.jpg

 

Here are the chapters pads:
