First Deathwatch Squad — November 4, 2010

First Deathwatch Squad

I finished my first Deathwatch Squad and here there are in all their glory.


It sure it nice to finish a squad I started over two months ago! I can’t believe how long these guys took me, but looking at the minis I am glad that I took my time;  I think that the Deathwatch came out really well. I like the striking black and red paint scheme throughout the squad as well as the unique bright shoulder pads on individual models. The small conversions also make the Deathwatch look a little more elite than the standard marine especially the running legs from the assault marine box.  Those legs make them much more aggressive and dynamic.

Deathwatch Test Minis — September 19, 2010

Deathwatch Test Minis

I completed the first three Deathwatch test minis. I completed a Blood Angel, a Black Templar, and a Space Wolf.

I worked on the bases a little bit by adding some static grass. The browns turned out too similar so for future bases I will add more contrast to the bases. I also worked on the black armor. I didn’t like how drastic the highlight was in the first test model so I added more of the middle grey color (Fenris Grey). I also had to paint flesh and eyes. These are the first eyes I have ever painted that didn’t turn out like googly eyes.

Deathwatch Test Model — August 26, 2010

Deathwatch Test Model

Hello there,

I have been working on a few deathwatch test models: a Blood Angel, Space Wolf, and a Black Templar. Here is the first of the test models (a Blood Angel in case you can’t tell). I think the red and white colors from the Blood Angel heraldry contrast well with the black and silver of the Deathwatch. I wanted to work more with highlights and challenge myself to not use washes or drybrushing; this is quite the challenge since the last army I painted, my Nurgle Daemon Army, is practically all washes and dry brushing.
