i wanted some sternguard for my sallies but i didn't want just any sternguard, nosireebob, i wanted a badass deathwatch kill team!:grin:

so, off i went to bitsandkits and got a shit load of plastic DW pads and then got myself an assault squad box and got busy with the poly cement.

here's the first off the painting table, a blood raven





i've put together a 5-man squad and a librarian:

1 space wolf
1 salamander
1 blood angel
1 blood raven

and 2 other chapters that i'm undecided on so any suggestions, shout 'em out :eek:k:

Personally, I'd like to see a bit more variety than just the Legions we're all used to.

I've just gone through this list (http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/List_of_Space_Marine_Chapters), yes, every one, and found a list of the chapter Icons I like the look of (Asterisked ones, especially so)-

Angels of Vigilance
Aurora Chapter
Avenging Sons
Black Dragons
Brazen Minotaurs*
Brotherhood of a Thousand*
Celestial Lions*
Consecrators*
Dark Hunters*
Dark Sons*
Death Spectres
Disciples of Caliban
Emperors Spears
Exorcists*
Flame Eagles*
Flesh Tearers
Genesis Chapter
Golden Gryphons*
Guardians of the Covenant
Hospitallers
Howling Gryphons*
Iron Lords
Iron Snakes*
Knights of Gryphonne*
Lamenters
Lion Warriors
Mentor Legion
Novamarines
Praetors of Orpheus*
Raptors
Red Hunters*
Red Scorpions*
Red Templars*
Relictors
Salamanders*
Scythes of the Emperor
Sons of Guilleman
Sons of Orar*
Space Wolves

Those are my choices anyway ;).

I was thinking red scorpions for the libby but I'm undecided for the sarge. Perhaps when i put up a pic later you guys can suggest a suitable chapter for his 'look' :grin:

Man, they look awesome!!

I agree with Barron Spikey, Imperial Fists. Every one wants some but no one wants to paint yellow :)

Is that a plastic Libby I see? Didn't know they made one, assuming it is one, of course. However, if it was home made could you tell me how you did it?

It's a home made libby. I just used a normal marine as a base and went from there. The psychic hood is made from a shoulder.pad and some guitar string. The left hand comes from the terminator libby.

I love the conversion, really well done, but I am not in love with hardlines. Looks really good regardless though.

Nice work so far. I like the lateral thinking, shoulder pad for a psychic hood. very clever. Rep for the squad so far.

While I'm not a fan of edge highlighting black armor, I love the crisp look that you've achieved with it. :eek:k:

I have a question, though: How did you prime the minis? I'm noticing that the black primed surfaces are distinctly glossy; I couldn't help but wonder that you used something other than GW's spray.
