Deathwatch Drop Pod #1

This is a rescue Drop Pod from my collection... not my greatest work but I was trying to work with the scheme that it already had.

I have another one that will be more black and red rather than red and black ...

A break in the production line (still Deathwatch though)

As I went through the process of drybrushing 20 models yesterday I baulked a bit at the thought of starting another bike or infantry model... so today's reward (for 4x full Kill Teams) I thought a transport with guns might provide a nice change.

This model is quite deceptive - I thought to myself "hey there's only half a dozen colours, that'll be quick..."

Of course I needed to do some battle damage to hide some of the rough and ready drybrushing.

Famous last words. Still, at least it's done now. Looking forward to it being an integral part of my list(s).

Deathwatch... halfway there (ish)

I'm about halfway through the army (model-wise) so a good opportunity to take a picture of where I'm at so far.

I've calculated the painted models coming to approximately 1500pts, which is great. 4x characters, 4x full Kill Teams...

Looks cool when you put them all down in one place

So that leaves to "finish":
  • 6x Heavy Intercessors
  • 3x Eradicators
  • 1x Inceptor
  • 2x Aggressors
  • 5x Terminators (plus some I think)
  • 4x Veteran Bikers
  • 13x Veterans
  • 5x Vanguard Veterans
  • 1x Primaris Chaplain on bike
  • 1x Chaplain
  • 1x Captain on bike
  • 1x Watch Master
  • 1x Captain in Terminator Armour 
  • 2x Librarians (don't ask)
  • 1x Venerable Dreadnought 
  • 1x Corvus Blackstar 
  • 2x Drop Pod
  • 1x Rhino
  • 1x Land Raider if I can finally figure out how it might work (modelling wise that is... I want something unique that leverages the Deathwatch's access to more esoteric 'stuff')
I also have in my box of unassembled Deathwatch:
Indomitus characters and 5x Assault Intercessors, 4 or so Sternguard, some Terminators, another Drop Pod and probably enough bits and pieces for another 4 DW marines. And probably some more characters (I need to build a Techmarine...).

Fortis Kill Team assemble... I mean, complete

So I've had a productive 24hrs despite finally testing positive for COVID-19. I have finished the 4 Primaris Outrider models and now that means my Fortis Kill Team is complete!

I used a few bits to make them more interesting including an Assault Intercessor arm, and some different helmets.

L -> R, front to back: Tigers Argent, Iron Snakes, Sons of Orar, Disciples of Caliban

In all their glory...
