Matts Deathwatch! .... Jensus Natorian

DEATHWATCH


Howdy everyone!

Recently picked up the deathwatch half of the overkill box! (well done GW I want to see more of this sort of thing!)

So I was staring at the new shiny sprue and thinking which do I want to paint first .... soon after angels of death hit and I needed a quick librarian so Jensus the blood raven was the obvious choice to start with.

Lore...

So who is Jensus and how did he find himself a member of the unique deathwatch. Well like many great heroes Batman, Harry Potter, Bambi ... Jensus story starts with dead parents. At the moment he lost his parents to the Ork Waaaaghhh Guttsplitta his psychic ability awoke and a blood bath ensued tearing apart greenskins with his bare hands!

Jensus was soon spotted by the black ships of the inquisition and endanger of become a mindless psychic slave to the Imperium of man, but was saved by an inquisitor by the name of Belicor. Belicor made sure that Jensus was enlisted in the the Blood Raven chapter and monitored his progress through out. Belicor then personally chose him to become a member of the secretive deathwatch were his full psychic ability and hate for xenos of every kind can be put to good use.

I personally am a big fan of 40k lore and back stories so having the chance to play with each member of the team in a back story driven mission is going be great fun with these guys. (maybe a lore battle report in the future)        

Painting...



Started with the armor, not a huge fan of painting black so thought I would give him a blue glow effect as he is a librarian. I did this by using games and gears detailed dry brush and building up layers of dark to light blue on all the edges. Thought it turned out pretty good and is an effect I would like to use more in the future. I really like the bright Lothern blue by GW as it does a nice edge highlight for power swords and armor!

All the scroll work and purity seals were a base coat of Ungor flesh then a highlight of 50/50 Ungor and flayed one and then a final highlight of flayed one finishing off with a Sepia was over them!

Also tried to use some gloss medium on the blood raven iconography which came out really nice and shiny!

Hopefully will finish the base off with some black lava around the cork center to give the look he is on some cracked tarmac.

Really enjoyed painting this model due to the detail and unique qualities of each character so if you are a fan of agents of the Imperium  this is defiantly a set to get!

Rules.......

Coming in at 95 pts he is 5pts more expensive than a regular level 2 librarian with a force sword with the exact same stat line....

So what do you get for that extra 5pts you may ask? Special issue ammunition! which personally I would take for 5pts any day! the chance to fire off some ignores cover or AP 3 or poison 2+ before charging into a big beast is a good trade off.

Only down side is as he is a named independent character so he is locked to his Biomancy powers .... so no new powers, which is strange as angels of death can say that they have access to them. (if you know the answer to this please help me!) :S

Anyway in conclusion the first member of my death watch is done and is pushing me to get the rest of the team on the table raiding space hulks or genestealer cults! Hope you enjoyed this quick read!

In till next time!

Matt

Coming soon ........ Ortan Cassius!

Confessions of a Warhammer Wife

Confessions of a Warhammer Wife

Bruce’s obsession with Warhammer was only revealed to me during our second year of dating. We had been together a long time by then – had even lived together for the majority of that time while at University. And still I didn’t know about this one aspect of Bruce’s nerd-dom. When Bruce and I first began dating I was fully aware of – even besotted by - his nerdy credentials. Together we had played hours of Halo 3 and Mario Kart, swapped manga and even visited the cinema for a solo late night screening of Star Trek. Yet this did not prepare me for what would become one of his main loves in life.
It all started back in 2012. We had been living separately back at our parents’ homes after University – me in Yorkshire, he in Worcester. I would often travel down to visit him and on one such occasion I was told of a new friend Bruce had made through work. Damien. They had apparently bonded when Bruce had taken on old model – a Tyranid Warrior I believe – into his …

Death korps of Krieg

Hello everyone, Sam here, it has been a while since I have posted on here and wanted to share what I have been working on. My first loyalist (shudder) army. Also my first guard army. 
Over the past 10 months or so I have been slowly building and painting a Death Korps of Krieg army using the seige of Vraaks book. I have been attempting a unit a week but like we all do my attention and attitude towards painting blows hot and cold.
I was origionally drawn to Krieg due to their post apocalyptic / menacing appearance and thought that they would be perfect for a renegades army. However the more that I read and planned the army, the more interested in the Krieg themselves that I became. This lead me to my first order of death riders and the other more krieg units. This is not to say that i wont experiment with renegades as i have found some wicked looking zombie krieg models that I may incorperate in the future. I expect this army to play in a totally different style to those I currently use …

Led kits and knights

Sam here with a small write up to review a product I have got recently which I think is just plain awesome.
I am starting an imperial Knight army at the moment and wanted to somethig to make them pop a little more (they will be bright yellow so needed something rather extravegant) so I had seen some pictures online of people who had added LED's to their knights and was hooked.
I searched the internet for some sources and found that it did not easily yield any obvious choices. A lot of expensive kits appeared for remote control cars and model train kits but I wanted something with one battery, switch and two led's without the hasstle of soldering myself.
Then I came accross this website 
http://www.smallscalelights.co.uk
Easy to navigate
Low cost
Range of products
Fantastic customer service! I had emails with instructions arrive upon payment as well as shilling information.
All in all it cost me around £10 for the kit including the battery I had to buy seperate.

Using the kit
