Default Deathwatch Strike Force Valinus

I'm a longtime lover of the Emperor's Astartes. I even quietly admit I like the spiky ones, too, although don't tell anybody that otherwise the Inquisition will come blam me. So when Deathwatch came out, I was pretty excited, because it meant I could use all that cool stuff that has accumulated in my bits box over 15 years of collecting my own Space Marine Chapter and doing loads of commission work.

The army list looks something like this at 1850 points. Yes, I know this has some stuff that hates fun in it, but it's a concession to the state of the game. If we didn't have people running around with Imperial Knights and Lords of Skulls and all that nonsense, grav guns wouldn't exist, and moreover, wouldn't be something that's sadly obligatory in the game these days. If someone isn't planning on bringing bullshit, those squads will replace their grav guns with either meltaguns or plasma guns-- I haven't decided which yet.

Anyway, here's the first model done-- a Veteran with a bolter (Brother Donatus). I'm waiting for the Sector Imperialis bases to come in, which is why the base is blank.

Hey man, welcome back!

I don't know anything about death watch kill team other than the models look great.

That guy seems good but the photo is quite blurry.

How's the game store going?

Finished a Librarian and a Veteran, and based the first Veteran. I decided to repaint the bolter red-- the black casing kind of gets lost against their armor.

Two more Deathwatch Veterans done- Grytt from Overkill and the Veteran with a power axe for Kill Team Valinus, Braum Icebreaker (of the Space Wolves Grand Company of Egil Ironwolf.)








This brings Kill Team Valinus up to five-strong ready to fight. I haven't decided if it makes sense to do their drop pod next, or finish the other four models in the squad first.

Loving the red bolters...it's very oldschool! Definitely needed some kind of colour change to stand out against the armour.
