So me and my friends are playing a custom deathwatch campaign based on shadow war Armageddon rules. I used to play an iron hands marine which I was quite happy with but ever since I saw the new primaris captain in gravis armor I just knew there would come a time when brother Ezekiel would have to go and guess what, this time is now =)

After radining through my buddy's blood angels bitz box I found out that there will be a couple of challenges ahead. The old hands are obviously way too small and I also need to care about them being left and right since this is deathwatch and all that. Also hand have to be magnetized since we can change gear during the campaign. I also didn't like the relic bone and scroll the miniature has dangling between it's legs and I'm gonna be replacing those with an ork head and a genestealer skull later on.
But anyways here begins the glorious bloodification!

As a fellow Blood Angelist, I can only encourage such behavior. Carry on.

So I've got some work done on Azrael.


The main problem was the size of the arms. Since he's a primaris i had to add quite a lot of green stuff to the sword arm even though it's a deathwatch arm which are already bigger then the vanilla marine ones.Luckily I already have a chainsword I painted for my previous deathwatch captain and I decided to keep it but added a little droplet on the hand. And while I originally wanted to use a blood angels power fist i found it to look just plain silly on a primaris model. So I had a fun time of cutting of the winged skull + the droplet of blood and glueing it to the power fist that the captain already had on him even though it's actually a boltstorm gauntlet. Shaving down the shoulder in order to put the deathwatch one in was a tough cookie. But I love how it turned out in the end especially with the little sun thing they all have on their elbow. Also notice the old power fist cable on the lower side =)

The relic bone and scroll on his crotch I hated so much. Now they have been replaced with more apropriate trophies. A geenstealer skull a necron head and a recently severed ork head with greenstuff tongue. Had a lot of fun making that x)

I don't really like how the deathwatch icon on the foot played out, it's a little big there. I might take it off later on.

You might be asking (probably not but I'll pretend that you did) what the hell are those heretical xenos particle casters from the triarch praetorian box are doing on the backpack. Well they are modeling out a camo gear upgrade from the shadow war which I represent as a sort of a field generator. Currently I'm thinking whether i should add something else to it, like a piece of string going through all of them and forming a circle or something. Oh and the tiny droplets are also from a blood angels powerfist.

Just found out that there's a dark angels hero called Azrael and the whole bible name thing is that chapter's thing. Guess my guy will need a new name =)

Nice work demur, you've got a lot of detail going on there and you can tell he's a Blood Angel. Any ideas for the base?

Thanks =)

Well. I'll either buy the same base as my previous deathwatch marine had (pic below) or make something from scratch. We're playing in a deserted town kind of terrain so I want something with broken roads and stuff. Got some materials lying around just for that =)

Looking good. Red and black is always a winner. Cool conversion work, too.

Had an hour spare so I've got some work done on the cape and the the ork head of all things. Those two items are done now. Sadly the camera on my phone does not do them any justice =/

Got my hand on some more BA bitz, so i couldn't resist =) Added some tiny wings from a shoulderpad to the backpack exhausts, got the little terminator shoulder shield and put a chalice i got of another shoulderpad on it. Also finally made my mind up and redone his right (sword) hand. I was not satisfied with the pose it ended up in and yesterday I finally gave up to the idea that the original gravis captain hand is the only thing that will look right. So there it is but i've sliced the deathwatch pip-boy in. Also got the one BA power sword I like and badly added a chalice to it x)

God, do I hate my cell phone's camera.
Had a couple of hours spare, so I've gone and made this base from scratch =) It's cork if anyone's wondering.

Man, these updates are getting frequesnt but hardly recognizable because of my gakky phone camera.
Put a couple of hours in, got the gems done although I forgot about the one on the chainsword hand since it's magnetized and was god knoiws where for most of the time =) That was my first ever gem painting, I think they look sorta ok. Although the smaller tehy are, the harder it was to do the different levels of highlights. Also did the shoulder shield.

Almost done by now. Gotta do the power fist glow and all of the power sword. Oh and maybe repaint the whole of the black parts since they look like gak >_< Also add text to the seals. Oh and work ob the pip-boy hand too.

Nice work. I do like a bit of Blood Angel-ification of stuff, especially with a Death Wstvh twist.

Base looks fantastic, as do the gems. Great work for a first try!

So I've finally got a good (hopefull) idea of what to do with the whole camo gear / stealth field thing. I'm not sure if it's visible on the photos but the "feathers' are made of a mirrory plastic. The idea behind it is aking to the flare countermeasures fighter planes use. It's a something to make targeting you harder. (yeah i know that countermeasures work againts heat-seeking stuff, but whatever! =D) And well, a spiky angelic halo is a very blood angels kid of thing =)
