This week has been a little mental, thus not as much progressed on the hobby table as planned, however here is a quick update;
I am working through a squad of 9 Intercessors, all about about ready for highlights and final details as well a resin bases. I am looking to add a few decals to these for the chapter symbols, at the moment I haven't got these planned.
I've recently bought some MDF terrain to try, and to model. I am planning on having a built up imperial world with some sizable buildings to fight over and in between, The first one I've built is this 'food shack' which I will convert to house a weapon seller, with weapons on the back wall on frames, as well as helmets etc.
I've recently bought a texture spray to base the model once primed to add depth to the model - one of the complains I've seen with regards MDF terrain is that its very 'flat'. hopefully this texture, plus the additions to it will make it pop! I also may look to add an LED or 2 to it as well! LH

Another week past, another model complete! This time is the humble Lieutenant hailing from the Rainbow Warriors Chapter.
This was a kit bash with several parts added the model, with a slight conversion of the left arm to have the gun pointing from a straight arm - the gun was cut away from the original arm with the arm bent, and the strap removed (purity seal to hide the sins of the chop) and then added to the arm thats out straight. The head is from the Hellblasters kit. Again I used a resin base as per all my Deathwatch marines.
The scheme follows the same with all Deathwatch, metallic black and a deep red for the weapons. The helmet on his waist has had the lieutenant White/Red stripe added.
I also added a dash of colour to the left knee to denote links to the rainbow warriors based on old imaging found online and from index astartes. I did try to free hand the symbol.. not the greatest at all, however I am happy with it. I also added the word 'Rainbow' to the right shoulder pauldron.
Another addition to the force.. hopefully next some troops! LH (10pts)

I firstly cut a base from 5mm MDF board using a jigsaw, the uppermost edges are then sanded smooth and after I have lined up with the Titan feet and marked holes for the screw attachments, I can use PVA glue and sand mix to coat the base, garden slate chips make nice additions to break up the base and useful if like mine you have a toe that does not sit flush to the base due to previous construction.

This week had seen the completion of another member of my Deathwatch force - a Chaplain with a jump pack. The moment I saw this model I knew somehow I would have to include at least one of them in a force - and with the Deathwatch I have that ability!
I've not changed anything on the model, as I feel the pose is very dyanmic. I painted the base colour the same as all the others, however I picked out the Blood Angels aspets with Red and Gold to denote his status as a Chaplain.
The jump pack was painted with red wings, highlighted with a bright orange against the red, which had a wash of Agrax to dull the colour slightly.
The eyes were picked out in the same blues as the helmet lenses, with a cooler, lighter blue used to add a hue around the eye sockets. I used the same blues to add to the jet pack engine.
Again, really happy with the finish, now time to add some troops! LH (10pts)

Another week, another completed model - this time, my Deathwatch Watch Master.
I spent some time on the head to get the right skin tone, and then the same with the beard, with several layers of grey up to pure white. His cape I kept simple, with a red outer, highlighed up, and a deep purple inner. The 'I's' were picked out in White to contrast against the deep red.
The base selected is also slightly higher so that the model isn't lost in a group of Primaris Marines.. can't have the main man missing!
The model faces - his head, the skull and the left eagle head are all looking in the same direction -with the right eagle head looking into the Watch Masters face - I feel this adds character to the final results.
Thanks for stopping by! LH (10pts)
