And another 5 down

So I am getting through 5 models every 10ish days... Possibly due to detail and that I'm painting to match old models rather than a quick scheme from scratch as I did for the Mechanicus.

Anyway, onto the models ...

Originally armed with a phase sword... Better a large power sword thanks

Stereotyping... Salamanders like flamers

Again stereotyping... Guardians of the Covenant also known for burning stuff 

Check out the scratch-built Infernus Heavy Bolter...

Now this guy is a grump


Backpack seems ... heavy

I have noticed that I didn't drybrush the melta or flamer barrels black so will do that tonight.

I think as a treat I'll paint the Apothecary next, then my 5-man squad with Stalker Boltgun and Missile Launcher (an actual squad not a random collection of models!).

The pile of undercoated models decreases but still quite the mountain (and I haven't even looked at reassembling the Land Raider for ages).

Still progress!

Ok so I slowed a bit due to... ahhh... let's blame the kids not going to bed early enough. But here's the next 4 figures completed (including static grass! Also on the models I completed earlier!!).

I also finally found the (one of 3) notebooks that had my painting recipes for Deathwatch in it - well, some of them anyway - so that was a good find.

Stupid amounts of detail. Glad the silly pigeon broke off too because that would have been a faff to transport.

Ultramarines Sergeant Donatus (or just regular dude)

A stealth specialist with a ... rocket attached to his back

Mr Carcharadon to you
The chaos raptor chainswords look a lot like sharks teeth ...
