Deathwatch: From the Skies

I’ve been working on a selection of Deathwatch Marines for a client. The full squad will have 10 men, all from different chapters. These 3 Assault Marines are the first grouping. They were all built from the Vanguard Veterans box, with assorted extra head and weapon swaps from other sets. In addition, they use the Deathwatch metal shoulders from the conversion kit. Like all Deathwatch, they wear black armor and left silver shoulder pads and arms. The silver was made by P3 Pig Iron over black, washed with blue ink, then highlighted by Pig Iron/GW’s Mithril Silver.

First is a Black Templar. His color scheme is obviously the least changed from his normal colors; black is black for a Templar. Out of all the models he bears the most purity seals, as well as an appropriately knightly helmet.

Second is a Blood Angel. His red scheme is only represented by the right shoulder, swiped from the Blood Angel Death Company set. I gave him ornamented weapons and decorated scroll work on his jump pack. His helmet has a halo of spikes, further reinforcing the angelic feel. His shoulder has the name ‘Gaius’.

Third is a Raptor. His Mark 6 Corvus ‘beakie’ helmet and winged skulls on his jump pack link him to the bird theme of his chapter. He uses a pair of lightning claws, held in a close quarter stance. The left arm and claw is of course silver, contrasting nicely held across his body. His shoulder has the name ‘Falco’.

More to come!
