1000 points of Deathwatch

Originally started as a kill team to use in the deathwatch rpg, quickly expanded into my favourite 40k army. The unique composition of the deathwatch means I can swap codecies at a moments notice and get to paint ( at least a little ) of all my favourites.

I am currently using the space wolf codex for the small customizable kill teams and kick ass long fangs until i have enough marines painted to go full tactical squads.

Army lists so far :- <-- 500 points

» Champion Zarakai Last of the Imperial Blades.
Jun Zarakai served with the Imperial blades for 410 years, wearing the white and gold heraldry proudly during some of the chapters most famous campaigns.

Though relatively young for the position, Zarakai joined the ranks of the venerated 1st company at the age of 132, his worth proved beyond question by his actions aboard the damned cruiser iron vengeance. Two full Tactical squads of Imperial Blades 4th company along with auxiliaries from the Modian 103rd boarded the ancient warship, drawn by an imperial distress beacon. Too late were the psychic echos of the arch enemy discovered. After several long and bloody days a single shuttle left the doomed cruiser bearing young Zarakai alone, the gene seeds of his fallen brothers as his burden, the head of the traitor leader as his trophy.

Since that day, Zarakai has led squads in all areas of the chapter until he received the honour of commanding the Bladesworn Terminator squad. Together they were all but unstoppable, an instrument of shock and death so honed they could end wars with a single drop.

After centuries of exemplary service Zarakai donned the Blades most prized suit of Artificer Armour and the relic great sword Justice and took the mantle of the Chapter Champion.

The Imperial Blades were all but wiped out in defense of their home world of Caspain, each brother laying down their lives in an effort to halt the advance of Hive fleet Leviathan. Whether by the hand of the emperor of the whimsical fortunes of fate only Zarakai survived, buried deep within the ice fields surrounding the polar fortress.

Several days later, fate played its hand again as Inquisitor Mormont broke through the shole of orbiting bioships and unleashed an experimental bio weapon upon the feasting Tyranids. Broken and alone, yet miraculously alive Zarakai was rescued from the ice. The feelings of rage and loss being denied an honourable death alongside his chapter were all consuming, he dedicated the rest of his life to hunting the tyranids. As soon as his body was healed, he traveled to watch fortress Erioch and stood before the watch commander.

After undergoing the long trails of Erioch, Zarakai was granted the long watch. Zarakai is now the last remaining member of the Imperial Blades Chapter of Astartes, bound to the deathwatch unto death.

God damn it, why did ya have to make such a cool army? -.-
<---now is jealous.
But a few things you might not have realized, GW DID release a fluff errata for a Deathwatch Killteam to be used as a HQ unit, I got a copy if you wanna read it, and speaking as a Blood Ravens expert... you DO know Tanthius is long dead right? He was a Dreadnought by the time of the Tartarus campaign (or was they Trythos? Damned similar names... -.-)
