Glad you like it! I was thinking about redoing the inside of the drop pod doors-- I had wanted a very weathered look and I had thought they just looked a little too haphazardly drybrushed instead of really worn. But maybe the really uneven weathering looks right.

Kel'shann, Salamanders, armed with an Infernus Heavy Bolter. I opted to do flames on the shoulder pad, but I'm not sure if I like it or not. I wanted to show he's from the Firedrakes but I don't know if it looks weird or not next to all the black.




And the finished Kill Team:

The pattern is on the right shoulderpad, yeah? Maybe if you took a picture from that angle - it looks fine as is though

Watch Captain Etienne Valinus, Lions Rampant






++Datafile, Brother Etienne Valinus, Astartes Chapter 733 Lions Rampant. Nonclassified Access.++
Born sometime between 650 and 660.M41 on the hive world Arannor, capitol of Arannor subsector. Records are incomplete but suggest Valinus was born to one of the noble families of the upper hives and orphaned in the process of political intrigue. Valinus was recruited from Schola Progenium holdings on Arannor by the Lions Rampant Chapter, flagged by Confessor Nerus (Inq.Ref 7418/e/Arannor) as potential recruit for Adeptus Astartes.

Valinus served as a Neophyte of the 10th Company from 671-680 before receiving the rank of Brother Astartes and being assigned to a Devastator Squad in the Chapter's Third Battle Company. Recipient of silver skull for cleansing action against Orks on Thetos VI (ref. 4.692.M41). Sole survivor of his squad. Issued Mars-pattern masterwork Heavy Bolter "Heretic's Due" and reassigned to 7th Tactical Reserve following Thetos campaign. Reassigned 704.M41 to Fourth Battle Company as replacement for losses in line Tactical Squad LeVeaux. Recipient of additional silver skull and Imperial Laurel during punitive campaign against human population of heavy industrial world Mozen (Inq. ref. 4.718.M41/Mozen Heresy). Citizens of the world noted for production of heavy equipment including Leman Russ chassis for the subsector rebelled under flag of warp-touched Xeratine infestation, expressing open worship of xenos overlords. Xeratine matriarch slain by infernus shell from Valinus' heavy bolter.

Valinus received title "Ser" (ref.Lions Rampant honorifics) and reassigned to Fourth Battle Company Devastator Squad Ganauld 726.M41. Nineteen additional awardings of silver skull over ten year period. Award of Crux Terminatus and admission to Chapter Reclusiam 742.M41. Valinus removed from active duty for next five years, over which time he studied under Brother-Chaplain Vitorre Eirdeaux. Assigned to Assault Squad Valdor, Fourth Battle Company, 746-761. Attached to Lions Rampant 1st Company 762.M41. Service as Veteran from 750-821.M41. Awarded the rank of Sergeant 822.M41 and assigned to lead Tactical Squad Valinus, 4th Battle Company. Following cleansing of genestealer cult on Proxima Segmenta on the border between Segmentums Obscurus and Solar and defeating cult magus in single combat, Valinus was ordained a priest of the Church of the God-Emperor, and donned the black armor of a Chaplain of the Reclusiam.

Attached to 6th Tactical Reserve as Chaplain 849.M41. Additional rewards of Crux Terminatus recorded during next twenty years against punitive campaign following traitor cult uprisings along Cadian Gate cordon. Valinus personally executed heretic Cardinal Sul Gabal of Gehenna, an industrial world supplying bulk munitions to the spinward elements of the Cadian Gate. Gehenna subjected to Exterminatus 901.M41 despite continued campaign to purge traitor cults. Situation deemed untenable following rise of plague zombies (ref. Plague of Unbelief).

Upon returning to Elysee 901.M41, seconded to Deathwatch for single Vigil. Expertise on moral threats proved valuable to uncovering a chain of genestealer cults which the Deathwatch was able to use to predict the path of a splinter fleet of Hive Fleet Kraken. Upon revelations of Inquisitor Kryptmann regarding Tyranid threat, the Deathwatch request for additional Vigil from Valinus. Given rank of Watch Sergeant 931.M41. Watch Captain Belius Leandros of the Angels Vermillion killed in action against Enslaver incursion 952.M41. Under recommendation from Watch Master Kurga Khan, White Scars, promoted to Watch Captain. Elysee sends newly forged set of lightning claws, quenched in the blood of martyrs, to commemorate Valinus' promotion to the rank of Brother-Captain.

It's kind of alarming to think that the 1850-point army list is actually a little over a quarter finished at this point after having painted only twelve models. Next up is Terminator-armored Kill Team Doniel.

Kill Team Doniel isn't necessarily the most game-effective configuration for a Deathwatch Terminator Squad. But, even knowing that I'm putting 300 points into 5 one-wound models, it's too much fun not to do. Deep striking in front of whatever target they need to eradicate, and just holding the trigger down on five assault cannons 'till they go click...

Sword Brother Wurtz, Black Templars

40 models. Although really 58, because I have the rest of Kill Team Cassius and I have an additional Captain, five Vanguard Veterans, a Dreadnought, and Watch Captain Artemis as well. But for the 1850 list, it's 40 models.

After a short break, we're back in gear with Strike Force Valinus!

Ready to join his brothers-- at least, from the shadows, as a lone hunter-- is Eydric Setorax, the Raven Guard. When you don't have anything better to spend 35 points on, and can potentially take a lot of shooting heat off of one of the Aquila Kill Teams for a turn by getting himself stuck in with a heavy weapons unit or even just sitting around camping an objective in cover, there's a lot to offer from the named Vanguard Veteran out of Overkill.



Also, I finished one of two haemotrope reactors for the store tables. While not strictly a Deathwatch thing, there are some really abusive things you can do with the haemotrope reactors and a Deathwatch Kill team packing plasma guns.
