Yesterday saw the release not only of the new Space Marines codex but also some delicious new Primaris units. Best release of the weekend? This little beauty!
So I can now plug the Primaris units I’ve been pondering on what to do with into my Deathwatch, so what’s making the cut? I guess first up has to be this fella…
As soon as pics were leaked of this thing I knew I had to have one, while waiting for the legs to set during building & having a sneaky browse I find that I can add it to my Deathwatch….DONE!
I’ve opted for double gatling goodness on him along with frag launchers for pure volume of fire. I went this route as Deathwatch don’t really struggle with high power fire between frag cannons, combi meltas & the like. The last image there is a scale shot next to my “not” Primaris Captain…this thing is a beast! Introducing Brother Kane.
Oh Captain, my Captain!
As I’ve previously mentioned I’m a big fan of the Deathwatch Captain as you get a lot of bang for your buck. We also now have access to Primaris Captains but only as bare bones. So I’ll be using this as a standard Captain, I just couldn’t resist taking the Lieutenant to the chop shop for his promotion.
He’ll be sporting this season’s must have accessories the Xenophase Blade & the ubiquitous Storm Shield.
Rounding up this batch of new recruits are a Hellblaster squad. I’ve been waiting for these guys to get permission to join the Watch since they came out & it seems my patience has been rewarded 🙂
I’ll be fielding these with a bunker to extend their lives, I mean who doesn’t want an extra 12 wounds at toughness 8? With the excellent range on the stock weapon they’ll provide a nice little firebase from their hidey hole. Oh…and they’re now 25pts cheaper on the basic squad 😀
I guess this has sealed it, Deathwatch will be under the brushes next & I’ll want to have something different painted for the 2nd Confrontation in October. I better finish a list & get painting I suppose…
