Impressive! Especially all your homemade chapter badges! I find the Deathwatch interesting because of how it recruits from different chapters, but I have pretty much built my DW Kill Teams out of the box, just painting more obscure chapters using the pads enclosed as opposed to the bog-standard First Founding chapters. Your Blood Drinkers badge I can probably copy as I've the Blood Angels bits, and maybe I can try sculpting some of the simpler badges now that you've provided inspiration.

Thanks Ancestral Hamster! Some are really simple conversions to do. You also have other options - I have bought shoulder pads from bits suppliers, ebay and more recently (and very expensive) 3D company called Shapeways for more obscure chapters.

Update time:

Sons of Medusa





Flesh Tearers

Update time:

Deathwatch Corvus Blackstar



I managed to finish a worthy base for my Deathwatch Corvus Blackstar - why have one dead Genestealers when you can have lots of dead Genestealers!!!!







Deathwatch Dreadnought

On the same theme, I wanted to show a Dreadnought ploughing through a host of dead Genetstealers.............



I can just imagine the mess his left foot is about to make in the carapaces of the dead Genestealers!



I had to hollow out a lot from the carapace of the dead Genestealer under the right foot.

Deathwatch Land Speeder Storm

I have always wanted my Space Marines to be similar to our Special Forces, having special weapons and enough ammunition to remain in a fight. For my newer models, I have added silencers on the end of their bolters and posed them in "Special Forces" poses. On that theme, I wanted a Special Forces vehicle which would pack a punch in case of a fire fight - I imagine my small force of Deathwatch veterans, having to fight without hope of a quick reaction force to help them when they kick a hornet's nest. Let me introduce you to my Land Speeder Storm......



I won an almost completely built Land Speeder Storm on ebay and wanted to kit it out with enough firepower to cause serious damage to any xenos scum!

I used an underslung Twin Assault Cannon from an old Master of the Ravenwing kit I had and is controlled by the pilot. I added the obligatory Deathwatch Icon on the front plate - let the enemies see who has destroyed them!!!
The front gunner is armed with a Twin Heavy Bolter (taken from a new Master of the Ravenwing). I added a further Twin Heavy Bolter in the turret cupola and Heavy Bolters in each side.



This shows the right side gunner (with his magnetised boots!) armed with a converted Heavy Bolter - I had to chop and swap the ejection port and the ammo box around to make it more practical. I used parts from Zinge Industries to use as a pintle mounted stand for the Heavy Bolter. Once painted, I will stick the torso onto the legs and I will get a closer fit than currently shown in the photo. For more realism, I have added a pistol to each of the 5 Deathwatch veterans and the 2 side gunners and cupola gunner, they have bolters attached on their hips. I haven't added the Chapter specific right shoulder pad - this is the last thing I will add before I complete the paint job.



This is the left side gunner. You can see that I will need to slightly alter the Twin Heavy Bolter in the turret so it fits better.



This is the plan view. I've had great fun building this vehicle and hope I can do justice in the final paint job that I'll undercoat tomorrow.

If there are any questions, just ask!

Regards, Phil.

Deathwatch Land Speeder Storm

I managed to finish my homage to Special Forces vehicles yesterday from a rescued ebay Land Speeder Storm:



So the weapon pay load is 2 Twin Heavy Bolters, Twin Assault Cannons and 2 side pintle mounted single Heavy Bolters. I decided to crew the vehicle with Deathwatch Veterans from less common Chapters (from Shapeways):

Storm Warriors piloting
Imperial Castellan co-pilot
Halo Dragons Pintle mounted turret
Dark Hands Left side operator
Knights of Eternity Right side operator.

Each of them have a holstered Bolt Pistol and the standing Veterans all have a slung Bolter. The compulsory Deathwatch Icon was added to the front glacis. The Twin Heavy Bolters and Assault Cannons were taken from the Master of the Ravenwing kit. The side pintle mounts were from Zinge Industries with the single Heavy Bolters from the Attack Bike kits. The turret cupola was taken from the rear Taurox hatch.



This shows the front right side. Everything was edge highlighted - painful, but looks good! The base was made up of my compulsory dead swarm of Genestealers and Hormogaunts!



The right side Heavy Bolter was converted to have the ammo box on the right side. I really like the Chapter Badges on these Deathwatch Veterans.



This shows the left side. Luckily the side gunners have magnetised boots to stop them falling out!

I had great fun making this and painted it in record time for me!

Deathwatch Jet Bike 1



I felt if any Chapter would still have access to relic jetbikes, the Deathwatch would. I converted the front Left Side to have the usual Deathwatch scripture and then added a large Deathwatch Icon. I wanted more Dakka, so I added an Assault Cannon in the front. I converted the lance from Grey Knight weapons and a Deathwatch Power Sword.



I added a White Panther shoulder pad (from Shapeways) and a holstered Boltgun for when the lance is lost. I have completed another jetbike - I just need to finish the base before I take any pictures.

Any questions, please feel to ask.

Deathwatch Rhino 1



Finished my first Deathwatch Rhino today. To give fire support, I added a pintle-mounted Assault Cannon and Heavy Flamer at the front.....



... and a Heavy Bolter covering the rear.







Deathwatch Predator 1

To help against swarm xenos (i.e. Tyranids), I give you my Assault Cannon Predator.....



I used an old Baal Predator for the turret, adding a pintle mounted Twin Heavy Bolter.



I added Assault Cannon sponsons (Predator Heavy Bolter sponsons with an Assault Cannon barrel from another Baal Predator)



This shows the Deathwatch Icons on the front and glacis plate of the turret.



I didn't quite finish edge highlighting this Predator, so this will be finished first thing tomorrow.

I have another Predator I want to finish tomorrow, as I'm in a painting mood at the moment, so best get as much of my backlog done!!

Regards, Phil.

Thanks FeindusMaximus.

Quick update:

Deathwatch Predator 2



This is the front view of my second Deathwatch Predator armed with multiple Lascannons. The Dark Tone came out really shiny on this Deathwatch Icon - I may use some matt varnish to tone it down. I really like the skull with the "I" on every other track. I also added a pintle mounted Frag Launcher to the turret.



This shows the left side...



..and here's the rear.



Finally, here's a plan view of the finished vehicle.

I'm just re-edge highlighting the last of my Land Raider, sponsons and turrets. I'll add some more soon.

Thanks Clouds for your comments

Update time:

Deathwatch Land Raider 1



Here's my first Deathwatch Land Raider finished. I added a large Deathwatch Icon to the front ramp and smaller icons on every other tank tread. I added a Twin Frag Cannons in the front turret on this version.



This shows the left side. I added scripture to a number of panels and the side hatch. I also added the usual Deathwatch Icon on the side hatch. You can see the Twin Frag Cannon sponsons in this shot.



This shows the top view. I added a pintle mounted Assault Cannon and Heavy Bolter in the top hatches. Edge highlighting is the most time consuming task!!!

I wanted to have the option of fielding different weapons. So I magnetised, re-painted and edge highlighted the following:



Quad Lascannons and Twin Lascannons



Twin Frag Cannons and Heavy Plasma (this can be swopped with Demolisher Cannons) ....



... and Quad Heavy Bolters,

For turret variants....



Twin Multi-Melta, Heavy Plasma, Twin Plasma, Twin Heavy Bolter, Twin Lascannon and Twin Frag Cannons.



Terminus Ultra variant.



Plasma variant.



Heavy Bolter variants.

I've just finished my second Land Raider and will post shortly.

Any questions, please ask.

Regards, Phil.

Deathwatch Assault Land Raider



I managed to complete my second Deathwatch Land Raider - based on the old WW1 British tank. I wanted a Dakka Land Raider, capable of decimating hordes of enemies, so I maxed out on Assault Cannons! In total, it has 12 Assault Cannons,1 Heavy Flamer, smoke and Frag launchers.



This shows a close up of the front ramp. I added Frag launchers as an additional weapon to be discharged just before the Deathwatch Veterans storm out of the front ramp. The large Deathwatch Icon was made from plasticard and milliput. You can also see the tracks are the same as my first Deathwatch Land Raider.



I added scripture across most of the left side and a smaller Deathwatch Icon on the rear hatch. You can see the Quad Assault Cannons here as well.



This shows the fairly plain right side - bar the Deathwatch Icon on the rear hatch.



This shows the top view. I added a large Deathwatch Icon and an extra hatch. This allowed me to have 2 pintle mounted Assault Cannons and 1 pintle mounted Heavy Flamer.

I've now moved on to painting my Deathwatch Storm Raven - updates to follow.

Feel free to ask any questions.
