More Deathwatch Additions - Eradicators, Heavy Intercessors and a Captain - DONE!

Hello All!

This weeks offerings are a squad and a character for the growing Deathwatch force.

Up first is a Black Templers characters, modified to be a Deathwatch marine. I feel he could act as either a Captain or a Chaplain in battle. The left arm has been cut, and modified to have the Deathwatch symbol, and then painted up with the normal DW scheme.
Following this is an 11 (I know, it should be 10, but...) Marine squad, comprising 5 Heavy Intercessors, and a 6 man Eradicator squad, to be used as a 10 man kill team, swapping out the Melta weapons depending on requirements. All have had Deathwatch shoulder pads added - 3 of these are from the Indomitus box, thus needing a lot of chopping to make it fit, as well as 3D printed Chapter right pauldrons.

Happy with the look of these! The Deathwatch force is growing sizable now. LH (21pts)

Relictors Chapter Space Marine - Castraferrum Dreadnought #2

Hello Readers, thanks for dropping by. I am scheduling these posts again as I return overseas. This is the second of many Dreadnought reinforcements I bought from Goddenzilla at Kaiju Country blog, at the link I now have the honour of matching 18 of these to my current Relictors Battle Company, mainly all the Castraferrum types - (the square boxy ones). This one is also an ancient METAL dreadnought and would make a great paperweight.
So a basic Assault Cannon, Dreadnought Powerfist and a Storm Bolter, bog-standard Assault type Dreadnought. I brightened up some of the greys, added the decals and did the base to match my own forces. Various other sensor upgrades, the scrollwork and purity seals to match my existing forces...
Here you can see him in Goddenzilla's original colours, on the left in the picture.
Thanks to Goddenzilla for letting these now OOP Dreadnoughts carry on the good fight for the ever expanding Relictors' Battle Companies, this one is drafted into the 5th Company. 

Cheers, Siph (5pts)

Buildings - Complete!

 Hello one and all - a few weeks away - sorry all!

This weeks offerings is several completed buildings, these are from ttcombat, these are mdf buildings which I've painted in a way to reflected a war torn city. Some of these are designed to be damaged, however I wanted to enforce this with the scheme. 

All of the models were sprayed with a base of textured spray, this was to add more depth to the flatness of the mdf. This was then based with grey, and then had several different sprays, browns, blacks, dark grey and black to them. I have also added colour to the interior of the 'complete' buildings, utilising a red base, and then apply browns and greys to show the damage to them.


GW store? This building appears to have been a hive store for the local population - it now is the burial gound for them, and many more!

Hive Block Beta - a small housing black for the local population - now ruins to hide from gun fire..

Administration Building - this was once a pound sight for the Hive city - the governer would speak to the people from the pulpit to encourage them to the imperial way..

Imperial buildings - housing the Imperial force for the planet. I've added LED candles in to add to the feel of the building.

Skyscraper - this was once a glorious sight for the populatiuon, housing the imperial might, and goverance. Now, the building is wrecked, however this is extremely useful for a well placed sniper..

Destroyed Imperial building... its only use is blocking line of sight..

Medical facility This once housed all the injured, now this is a fire base to 'bring the pain!'

The same scheme was applied to the ground scatter Terrain.

Thanks for stopping by! LH (10 kits, 50pts)

Forge World Warlord Titan - Arioch Titan Power Fist w/ Vulcan Mega Bolter Array

Welcome Titan fans, another update to my recently completed re-paint of the Warlord 10, "Ex-Noctia". I had included in the purchase two Arioch Titan Power Fists, in Atarus colours, which I have now repainted one. Behold the completed Rites of Colour on this mighty Astorum Arioch Fist!
I have altered how these were fitted to the Warlord, hence the filled in brass rod securing arrangements and I have drilled my usual rod magnets into the round attachment point, using a 20mm long, 8mm diameter rod magnet gives ample pull even with the gravity trying to twist the fist into a vertical line, the magnet pull prevents any movement and the fist remains at the 20 degree upright position I drilled. (Note the nod to the former reds of Atarus preserved on one panel)
On the top of the fist is a Vulcan Mega Bolter Array, in game (AT28mm) this just provides an extra pip of strength and chews through armour at the combat phase, with no ranged advantage or shots, however at TitanOwnersClubUK Walks we are discussing if this gives a VMB weapon at range - due to the large amount of Engines at a Walk, the fist Warlords spend two turns getting into combat doing nothing but taking hits/damage and unless we have gentleman agreements to let the opposing fist Engines close together to fight they are just shot off the board - a ranged VMB will allow in-game usefulness and participation as they close their enemies.
Here it is on Ex-Noctia Warlord (10)
Astorum Walks! Ave Omnissiah!
