Hating Xenos since M32 - More Deathwatch

Warhammer 40,000 – I’m really happy to see Deathwatch lists popping up as part of the competitive scene, its one of those forces that has so much flavor but tends to get over-costed to make up for all the “extras” they get. With bolters now being more effective I feel you’ll see more of these Men in Black popping up in Imperial Soup armies if not as a stand alone force.

Taking the Black - More Deathwatch

Warhammer 40,000 – I think I’m near the end of the infantry for my current Deathwatch client. This batch has a few more Vanguard Vets and some armed to the teeth Primaris Marines.

Deathwatch is a bit different.

Big Timers - Primaris Death Watch

Warhammer 40,000 – With this year’s Death Watch codex the Men in Black of 40K got a big boost to their available units. Intercessors will give them a bit more range and a few more wounds to help stand up to the various Xenos threats that plague the Imperium of Man.

To make the marines stand out as coming from a multitude of far reaching chapters I painted some of the shoulder pads in off-colors and applied a decal. Much like the old-pallet swaps in video games subtle changes make something into something brand new.
