Idea is to build up a small elite army, rather than a 2nd meganobz army ive decided to go with the death wing.
Just need a few ideas and info to help me along while i wait on the dex and some other random things.


Incomming interrogation:


1: Belial must be in my army, what kind of weapon setup does he need? (is there any option?)

2: Best way to obtain the DA storm shields?

3: Best mix of termies? (claw, hammer, standard with AC's)

4: is there any decent place to buy the DA upgrade sprues?
Since i plan this to be a small elite army i will be spending some serious time on it, just wanted to make sure i have them as detailed as possible.

5: anyone have a rough half decent list as a guideline for me?
want to get some stuff ordered now rather than waiting 2 weeks on the dex.

6: thank you very much for any help and sorry for all the questions

There is a guy on the P&M forum that did a rather huge Death Raven army that turned out fantastic. You should look it up.

1) Lightning Claws or the stock SB/MCPW. If you're getting the upgrade sprue, there is a power weapon on it that is very suited for him. TH/SS is a waste on him. You should have enough other AT and you're wasting I5.

2) I got mine off the upgrade sprues. TH/SS isn't that good for the Deathwing though. They are more geared toward focus fire to kill things than getting close in. The SS also is pretty poor since it's only one pip better than the normal save and you're effectively giving up an attack per model.

3) I go 3 LC/2 TH or all 5 LC in Belial's command squad with the standard. 5 attacks on the charge with LC's is NOTHING to sneeze at. Belial gets 6.

4) I got mine from GW direct. The upgrade sprue alos comes with the robed marine bodies so you get the start for some nice vet's/sternguard.

5)
1750:
Belial
Term Librarian w/ Combi Melta
3x Terminators w/ AC
1x Terminators w/ Cyclone
2 AC Dreadnaughts
Land Raider

1750:
Belial
Belial
Term Librarian w/ Combi Melta
3x Terminators w/ AC
Belial Command Squad w/ Standard
2 AC Dreads
LRC

Going to 2k is easy since you just add in another terminator squad or a Land Raider.

You can see my build in my links.

I originally thought about running with DW Assault, and after some playtesting am thinking about a couple of LR to help get them in position/anti-armor.

You can get most of what you want from the RW extra sprue for about $5. Lots of icons, books, assault cannons, power weapons, etc.

To get extra Shoulder pads is the tricky part. You have to buy extra Vet sprues or Termi leg sprues which sucked for me. Spent a lot of money just trying to get the DW shoulders.

But with the current updates in the SM Codex - DW is like taking a knife to a dreadnought fight. We get to overpay for everything, and we don't get the newest toys.

Our Librarian powers are still better, though

I know dark
but i just dislike painting the colour scheme, i did 20 termies for a frind and it took me ages, i prefer to paint with a colour i know i can get to work.

i may just throw in another 3-4 washes to darken it up a bit instead.

extra shoulder pads can be got on e-bay i use a couple of stores one in uk one in usa both are ok
legs too
sprue brakers are a good way of hetting the bits you want without paying a gazzillian teef to get the whole sprue for 1 or 2 bits

lol, i plan on spending months painting them up as best i can, so i cant go down that route sadly, it will just be painstaking work, but with any luck it will pay off.

Also, someone posted pics of Da termies with robes, i may give it a shot at making some, i can make cloaks, so shouldnt be a big problem

Agreed - Find an off-white/bone primer, pick out bits, wash with Gryphone, drybrush - done.

My drop pod has garnished the best ratings in my gallery, but this is all I did to paint it.

Meh, not a big fan of GW's washes
I tend to mix my own, and with a project like this it will mean making alot of my own.

so far the test model i like has had 5 washes to get it to the colour it is.

Anywho, ill get that finished up and post a pic of it
