So, it seems I've been drafted into Dimitri's "Paint something already, you damn hack" painting blog/contest, and as the last I've assembled has been some Deathwatch Space Marines and they look very spiffy indeed (...and I might actually even use them for an In the Emperor's Name game, to boot), I've decided to go with them.
The new Deatwatch veterans sprue is chock full of interesting stuff to use. For example, these are some of the minis I've assembled with it:
Out of the five, only the middle one is actually a body from the DW veterans sprue, whereas the rest are made with weapons and bits from it, but with other SM bodies I had lying around.
The squad I'm going to start painting, though, is the one made with the actual DW bodies, armed with very regular bolter/power weapon combos. I've just primed them today and took a very, very rough pic:
Now, I need to actually, you know... paint the damn things ^_^.
