Mostly, on my phone.


The Inquisitor turned the unblinking gaze of his crystalline eyes across the assembled Astartes. Emotions flickered across their souls, pride, suspicion – some of their assembled number were, he knew, thought lost to many – anxiety? He smirked inwardly, his visage as impassive as their adamantium helms. They shall know fear, before our course is run.
When his voice came out, it was smooth, melodic; it belied his scarred form.
“I am Lord Inquisitor Crowl. You will call me sir. You are to serve me, and the Ordo Xenos, as I see fit.” One or two of them twitched, almost imperceptibly. He leant closer.
“Forget your oaths to your brothers. Forget your oaths to your chapters. Your only oath now is to me.” He smiled, fractionally. “To the Deathwatch, and our Emperor’s glory.” He flexed, allowing himself to stretch, his augmentations and arcane technology all to apparent. His voice rang out like a temple bell: “Imperator Rex!”
And the voices of Deathwatch sounded an echo that built to a roar. Perhaps, he mused, we may yet survive this.


Right folks, it's competition time!
Open to all and sundry; the challenge is to produce a Deathwatch Marine, chapter and loadout of your choice.

CRITERIA
Judging will be on painting, modelling, and overall by myself and leadlegion. If you want to do a bit fluff, that won't hurt, either.

I am building up a Deathwatch retinue for Crowl from my existing GMS and if any of you would care to send me your fig that would be amazing.

This won't affect the judging.

The one catch for the contest is your fig should be on a small d-style (rounded lip) base; if you need one, just ask and I'll send you one.

Basing style should be entirely up to you, be it urban or desert, simple or complex. You don't have to use a d-style base, but hey, it's a change.


Picture rules are pretty standard for p&m: you must submit an unpainted or primed pic as well as your final photo. Please make the final image as large as possible and post both in-thread.

Deadline: Midnight gmt 13th Sept (that is 13th>14th).


PRIZES
There will be a couple of prizes for this, and the winner will have the choice. You'll be able to pick from getting a mini custom painted by leadlegion, a Custom Build from me (GK, mentor, weeping angel, assassin, =][= retinue or something completely different!) OR... a Storm Eagle conversion kit (that is, all the resin components to build a SE from an SR). It's the new one FW are sending me, in case you're wondering Hopefully, not too shabby.

Any thoughts suggestions etc?

Otherwise, sign up and good luck!

Further clarifcations:
Deathwatch are marines from any chapter drafted by the Ordo Xenos to aid Inquisitors with particularly heinous threats. Paint scheme is Blacked out armour with silver left arm. Right shoulder as per chapter of origin. Sometimes, this is reversed so chapter colours with right shoulder as deathwatch (this is non-canon iirc but rather an aesthetic choice by some folk).

Hope that helps!

List has been updated with more Maybes. Once you post a WIP I'll add you to the entrants list.

I've tweaked the prize slightly - if you choose a model from me then I'll build something entirely to your own requirements/ taste/ chapter/ race preference - not just a marine, in other words.

Also, if I can muster something suitable as a prize, would folk like a "People's Choice" award that you can vote for as well as the Judges winner?

Figured that this might be a good opportunity to use my Techmarine, so here is a WiP picture:



Just noticed that there is already a dual plasma-pistol wolf jumping around here, so I might change up the weapons there. I was thinking about forgoing the typical Techmarine tool-back-pack and give him a jump pack. If anybody would be using a Techmarine to jump behind enemy lines to disable some filthy xeno-tech it would be the Deathwatch.

@ The Dwarf Wolf: well, you've got nearly 8 weeks...
@ JustPlainJim: that's the spirit! And, resisting the urge to yell Objection! it can be extant chapter or home brew, pre-heresy, dw version of extant model, no chapter (that exists as a faction itself!) - whatever you desire!
@ Mabrothrax: good to have you back buddy and on board! Don't know what you mean about your cupboard
@ rigeld2: well there's nothing stopping 2 (or more) folk using the same base chapter). Chaplain sounds cool and late August still gives you time.
@d-usa: any =][= pad will do; nothing wrong even with a plain pad with a freehand/penned-on logo is fine!
