Armies played


  1. Time to start my Deathwatch army. First, a little bit of lore for one of the watch fortresses I have seen on a wiki before, so I am going to give it my own take. Watch Fortress Sentinel IX Sentinel IX is a former Aeldari Haven Spire space station, now occupied used by the Deathwatch as a watch fortress. Pict-capture presumed to be of Sentinnel IX prior to capture by Imperial and Deathwatch forces Location: Sentinel IX is located in the Gamma Orionis system, a star situated at a nexus of several stable warp trade routes recently discovered. Previously the Haven Spire and system were infested with foul Eldar, to include the fleet of pirates known as the Bellatrix Corsairs. The Eldar were scoured from the system by the Deathwatch in centuries past, though the threat of future raids remains extremely high. Planet Banjan Major Sentinel IX orbits the planet Banjan Major; a large asteroid-ringed deathworld with several different biomes including oceans, forest, plains, blistering deserts, equatorial jungles, and polar ice caps. Many of the harsher environments and dangerous megafauna are used in training exercises by the Deathwath veterans. The ancient Aeldari infestations have been neutralized, though ruins still remain, and are now populated by human colonists, many the descendants of settlers believed to be under the thumb of their xenos oppressors. The human population provides both supplies and recruits for watch fortress PDF and serfs. Sentinel IX Haven Spire structure: The Haven Spire orbiting within the rings of Banjan Major is a gigantic space station of Eldar origin, now conquered by the Imperium and upgraded with large amounts of Mechanicus weaponry and tech. Five large solar sails capture energy that provide power to the station itself, and many batteries of Eldar lance weaponry have been repurposed by the Deathwatch for defense of the station. The many docking ports have been retrofit for Imperium voidcraft, and include berthing docks for the large strike-cruiser fleet of the Watch Fortress. The wide array of sensors keep a steady stream of data for the watch servitors to process for any hints of xenos presence within the system or in the surrounding void. The station is run by a large compliment of subservient serfs, technicians, armorists, and menials, as well as several thousand servitors. Watch Fortress Company Structure: Sentinel IX Watch Fortress is the home of four companies, comprised of roughly 200 marines when at full strength, not including officers and support staff. Companies nominally contain 50 marines including command element and specialists. Each company includes one Captain, two Lieutenants, and one company Senior Veteran Sergeant. Companies each contain four kill teams of up to ten marines each led by a Sergeant, varying between the companies in composition (Indomitor, Spectrus, Fortis, or Terminator squads). Watch Fortress Heraldry: The veterans of Sentinel IX differ only slightly from the standard Deathwatch color scheme. All marines repaint their armor black upon arrival to the watch fortress, save for their right shoulderpad which remains their original company colors, and their left arm which is repainted the color of steel. Instead of painting weapons, stripes, or other markings red, the forces of Sentinel IX instead use green. This includes the company markings, which are variations of black and green. Sentinel IX Company Markings Helmet coloration for the Deathwatch marines of Sentinel IX is as follows: Veterans- black helmet Veteran Sergeants- black helmet, green stripe, silver skull Lieutenant- black helmet, green stripe with white edges, silver skull Captain- black helmet, gold skull Sentinel IX Helmet colorations Non-marine crew serfs: Serfs assigned to the fortress include a cohort of some 4000 serfs assigned directly to the marines themselves. Duties include but are not limited to care of housing facilities, armor, weapons, food, and maintenance. In addition there is a formal Haven Spire station crew compliment of well over 10,000 serfs responsible for station operations and control, technical adepts assigned from the Mechanicus, ecclesiastical and inquisitorial staff, medical personnel, and secondary defense personnel for the station. This estimate does not include the servitors assigned to much of the stations physical labor, and who may themselves be hard-wired into the station for maximum efficiency. Mechanicus Support: The Watch Commanders of Sentinel IX have long been able to request the highlest levels of support and armament from the Adeptus Mechanicus, and maintain a large presence of tech priests and adepts within the ranks of the chapter’s support personnel. Most of the support the chapter receives is from the forgeworld Ryza, but out of necessity they tend to be the most radical elements of the forgeworld due to the large amount of xenos tech that has made its way into the fortress’ inventory. ...takes off lore hat... Really looking forward to this army. I had a lot of fun putting together the models and a bit of lore. Its been a while since doing any marines, so the primaris are a big change. Plan is to make the entire army primaris (save for a few choice vehicles) with plenty of options for kill teams, using primaris models in place of the firstborn marines. Current Army List Plans: HQWatch Captain- hammer or xenophase blade with stormshield and jumpack Primaris lieutenant with storm shield/power sword Primaris Librarian- force sword TroopsFortis Team- Sergeant with power sword, x4 intercessors (assault) and hellblasters (assault) Fortis Team- Sergeant with power sword, x4 intercessors (stalker) and hellblasters (heavy) ElitesAggressor Squad- boltstorm gauntlets and and fragstorm launchers Primaris Apothecary Fast- Thunderstrike Stormspeeder (can swap for Hammerstrike) Heavy- Stalker AA tank (can swap for Hunter) This is what I currently have on hand, gotta start small before I spend too much! I would love to expand into a full Indomitor kill team with some heavy intercessors, and some spectrus kill teams. Also hope to get a watch commander and some more officers, along with some of the new dreadnoughts. From what I have read vehicles don't seem to be great options for marines/deathwatch in particular, but I love the stalker so that was an auto pick for me (gotta get that drone defense somehow!) and I also like the new speeder variants too even if they are essentially a flying brick. Hope they can be some fast moving sacrificial anti-tank firepower. Next up will be pics of army assembly and my first attempts to paint marines in over a decade.
  2. Hey all. First time delving into the Deathwatch with a fully Firstborn army, trying to capitalise on the lore in terms of Kill Team compositions whilst still being a fairly competitive list. In terms of a game plan: Combat squad Termie Proteus KT to cover deployment zone and home objectives. With the Malleus Specialism, they'll form the bulk of my army's heavy ranged weaponry to take down monsters/vehicles. Combat squad both VanVet/Bike KTs so that I have 2 quick and durable T5 squads to advance up the left and right flanks and to hopefully capture objectives near the enemy's deployment zone. The two footslogging halves of the KTs will advance up the centre to contest/capture objectives there, with the 3 HQs following close behind them to provide buffs and contribute to combat. Vanguard Vets will be my tank/monster hunters whose mobility I'll use to leap from cover to cover or bring them in from reserve to catch a big unsuspecting target. What do you fellow Watch Masters think? Would love to get your thoughts on it and any advice would be greatly appreciated! ++ Battalion Detachment (Imperium - Adeptus Astartes - Deathwatch) [76 PL, 11CP, 1,500pts] ++ + HQ [17 PL, -1CP, 295pts] + Chaplain: 6.

  7. Recently I bought a bunch of new primaris models to build a Deathwatch force, really looking forward to building up an army of these guys from chapters all over the Imperium. I have gotten a lot of inspiration from members of this forum, thank you! My WIPs and army blog is here. Here is first space marine I have painted since Battle for Maccrage was still in stock! Lieutenant Scipio of the Iron Snakes All magnetized pieces:
  8. Hi Fraters, Alright so I've tried to write up this post *dozens* of times now and never quite managed to finish it up, so sorry if it's missing any important details. Essentially I've been sat on an two squads of Deathwatch Veterans from a Start Collecting box for literally years now and have built all my other DW units except for these guys simply because I'm too indecisive about how to actually build them. There's so many possible loadout combos which is a big factor in why I love the unit, but also the bane of my existence because I get easily crippled by choice. So I want to spec them to mulch infantry at range, preferably with some degree of versatility (i.e. be it Gaunts, Skitarii or Marines) but can't really settle on the loadout for that. I'd build the 10 models as 2 x 5 man Squads and put them either in a Rhino or a Drop Pod if that helps, looking to get them up close or into a good position. I like the idea of the following, to go through some of my current thoughts: Sgt with Plasma gun and Xenophase Blade, Veterans with Plasma Guns and Chainswords - Cheap and cheerful, really nice damage output at a reasonably good price and can hold their own in melee (probably) The same as the above, but with Combi-Plasma instead of regular Plasma guns. Gives me that sweet SIA bolter action plus the ability to absolutely spray multiple shots with both profiles albeit at -1. Obviously a full 50pts more expensive than option 1. Deathwatch Shotguns. Everyone gets a shotgun, except maybe the Sergeant who could have a XPB and another weapon (Melta gun maybe) for close range punch. These shotguns seem like a really nice and versatile close range gun for a cheap overall model price Sgt with bolter and XPB, 2 x Veterans with DW Bolter + Storm shield, 2 x Veterans with DW Frag Cannons. Frag cannons look solid if unexceptional on paper, I dunno if these heavy weapons are really worthwhile up close? Shield guys are obviously for tanking shots, SIA bolters seem great but maybe not unless deployed in bulk? Stalker Bolter and XPB on Sergeant, 2 x Veterans with Stalker Bolter and SS, 2 x Infernus Heavy Bolters, no transport for these. Decent long range damage output again? Those are generally the ideas I've had, kinda ranked in order from favourite to least favourite on paper, I'm just kinda really stumped on what to go with and would love to hear some ideas for reasonable squad loadouts that could go in a Rhino/Drop pod. I'll also list what I've got built and painted/available below in case that presents context that would be useful. Watchmaster Terminator Captain with TH + SS (would be using Dominus Aegis) Primaris Techmarine Primaris Apothecary Fortis Kill Team - 5 x Auto Bolter Intercessors + PF Sgt, 5 Hellblasters with Assault Plasma Incinerators DW Veterans - Sgt with combi-plasma + XPB, Vet with combi-plasma + Power sword, Vet with Frag Cannon, 2 x Vet with Infernus Heavy Bolter 5 Deathwatch Bikers, Sgt with TH Ven Dread with Twin-Lascannon + SB Redemptor Dreadnought (will be paired with the TM) Corvus Blackstar with twin-lascannon + Hurricane bolter Rhino Drop Pod Thanks for reading!

    The Iron Raven

    From the album: Death Watch Conversions

    This is the "Iron Raven" he is a Deathwatch Captain conversion. He is made from the Captain Artemis kit body, Iron Hands Head, and arms bits. Thunder Hammer and Deathwatch Shield as his wepons, with a standard Jump Pack on the back. His wings are bits from the Dark Angel biker kit. His base is made from parts of a Drukhari Raider, as well as a dead Drukhari at his feet.
  14. From the album: Death Watch Conversions

    This is Watch Master He'Stan. He is my Deathwatch Watch Master conversion made from the Vulkan He'Stan model. His Guardian Spear is made from a Grey Knights Spear combined with a bolt gun. His base is slightly larger than the standard Watch Master base in order to fit the dead scarabs at his feet.
