Deathwatch Gallery Update: Limited Captain, Watchmaster and Inceptor

Just a quick update…. as you can see my Deathwatch WIP table is crammed so I had to get some serious work done!


Uhg, where to start?

With such a massive to do pile (this is literally about half of it) I decided to do a few of the fun pieces that I like. Converting box set (Dark Imperium) Inceptors and Hellblasters was a bit awkward. (more on that later) But for now I wanted to spend about a month or two working on Characters, so that’s what I did.

First off I needed to get one Inceptor done for a game. The black armour was a recipe I’ve been working on for a very long time, using green/blue inks, and off whites to create some depth and more interesting colour spectrum (you can see some of this airbrushed into some of the WIP’s above.)

Then I went to town on the Inceptor:

A different angle.

Then the Watchmaster… a very long time project. I kept putting him down and re-doing some things until I felt I liked him enough for the project:

I tried to keep a ‘traditional’ look to the Guardian Spear.

With this guy done I felt it was time to finish off that limited model I wanted to use as a Deathwatch Captain with Meltagun Fist, and Stormbolter. It’s a fantastic sculpt and in my mind the Deathwatch was the perfect place for him.

It took a lot of work to make that black armour look a little more interesting.

The Gauntlet is an excellent add on. Too bad I didn’t take a better picture of it!

Although it doesn’t show the glowing skull on top, this is the best pic I have of the gauntlet. A really fun model to paint.

Thanks for checking out this update. Although it’s only three finished models, these were a few months in the making for me, and you just reach a point when you have to move on and call them done!
