I have been a fan of Warhammer Fantasy for a long time getting started with the RPG. It has been over a decade since I last painted any miniatures but then I read the Ultramarine Omnibus and fell in love with the Deathwatch. After that I read the first book of the Deathwatch series and am currently reading the Eisenhorn series. I was a little dissapointed with the old Deathwatch rules simply because what was allowed by following the strict rules was not what was in the books ie in the rules it was either a Capt or Librarian and then Marines with various weapons and ammo options but also limitations. In the books a DWKT could have a Tech Marine, Chaplain, Scout, Apothecary and so on with very little in the way of limitation. Now there is a new 40k edition and the Deathwatch and Ordo Xenos in general are no longer in the rules. I am in the middle of painting a DWKT and have thougth about continuing when I get done by making an Ordo Xenos army.
Here is my DWKT.
Librarian w/staff (Brotherhood of a Thousand)
Heavy Bolter (Crimson Fists)
Flamer (Red Hunter)
Chainsword and DW rifle (Iron Fist)
Axe w/ DW rifle (Space Wolf)
Lightening Claw w/ rifle (Lamentor)
Power Fist w rifle (Ultramarine)
DW rifle (White Scar, Dark Angel, Mortifactor)
I am going to make an Inquisition Rhino using doors and such from Forgeworld
The rest of the army will be
Solomon Lok (from Forgeworld) w/ Servo Skull
Inquisition Tech Servitor (from Forgeworld)
Crussader, Acolyle, Diagolus
w/ Inquistion Chimera
1 squad Storm troopers w/ sgt
1 squad Special Weapons Stormtroopers w/ sgt
w/ Inquisition Chimera
I figure this Army to be about a 1100-1300 point army
What are your thoughts?
