The Deathwatch

I'm starting work on a Deathwatch army which will probably end up being around 1500-2000 points or so. My intention is to use Space Marines as the primary force with Grek Knight allies and an Inquisitorial detachment to act as Warlord. For the marines, troops will be Sniper Scouts in Deathwatch "Infiltrator" Pattern Scout Armour. This is detailed in the Deathwatch RPG books, specifically Rites of Battle. The idea is that they are veteran marines equipped for stealth ops. I think the models turned out nicely. More pics to come as I work on the army.

Ork Battleforce

My local GW store in Bear, DE is doing a thing where if you're able to paint a Battleforce or Battalion in 30 days, you get a cool looking patch that says Ready 4 Battle, or something like that.

I decided to go with an Ork Battleforce.  My plan is to ultimately have a Grot only (as close as I can get) allied detachment.  I'm thinking that this will be doable with a couple of very large Grot squads with some Killa Kans and maybe a Big Mek Conversion to give all the Grots a cover save/invuln.  I don't really remember how exactly the Kustom Force Field works.  I'm thinking I would just model up some sort of custom force field conversion and have a couple of grots poking at it.

Here is my standard bearer grot.  He's from the Biker Kit.
