It’s been a hobby heavy week this week in an attempt to keep on track for October. All I can say is that it’s good that I really wanted a Deathwatch army or these buggers were never getting painted…black is such a chore.
Anyway, this week I’ve managed to sort out the second Killteam for the list, Artemis and the Librarian so I’m quite pleased. This means I only have ten more miniatures to paint in roughly four weeks!
Update time on the ol’ Deathwatch…
It’s been a bit of a slog getting this unit done if I’m honest. It’s the largest unit in my list & I was working on them all at once by batch colouring (mostly). Which, whilst time saving is really quite soul destroying.
Made some progress into the pile of Deathwatch waiting for paint & have got more done on the Watch Master…
Just a very brief update today as I got to spend a little more time on the Watch Master…
With last weekend firmly out of the way I can now resume my regular painting schedule…or can I?
It appears there is now a little under ten weeks until the 2nd Confrontation & I’ve decided that I’d like to take my Deathwatch to this event which means I need to paint the army!
The list is built so it’s just brush work from here on in. This is what I’m going to be working on…
This weekend saw the annual Pompey Pillage event return & as always the event was a colossal amount of fun with a great bunch of people.
The event took the form of five games of 8th edition 40k spread over two days, and we’re talking pure, uncut, out of the book 40 Ammerz (see what I did there).
Deathwatch Watch Master
Woke up pretty early this morning so decided to crack on with a kitbash Watch Master I’ve been hunting bits for all week. Continue reading
My Deathwatch recruitment drive carries on in earnest. Today I’ve been working on inducting an Intercessor Squad into the Watch & a minor head swap on a Blackshield for one of my Killteams…
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…
So…I’m pretty glad that I switched my list in the end. The humid weather still hasn’t let up & there’s roughly two weeks until the event meaning I’d never get my Red Hunters done in time 😦
Luckily I’ve managed to get things together for my alternative list from my last post.
