Kris – I first got interested in Deathwatch when the boxed game of Deathwatch Overkill came out, not knowing much about the Deathwatch it peaked my interest. When I saw the models in the box I got a bit too excited and pre-ordered myself a copy. I loved the detail on the models loads and so when I got the chance to build and play Death Masque I jumped at the chance especially because of the Artemis model. I have the original Inquisitor version of the model and thought that the new version was so reminiscent of its larger brother that I needed to have a go and see what he can do in the game.

I will be honest with you, I thought painting black armour would be simple and fast but it wasn?t, I used washes to try to give the black some depth rather than highlights which I am not convinced worked so may need to go back to them and add a few deep grey highlights. I love the contrast of the red against the black, but when I started to add the rust to the silver that’s when they came together for me. I wanted to give them a look of being out in deep space for a while, and obviously busy killing xenos so are unable to keep on top of maintaining their armour.
I will definitely add to the army, maybe paint up some vehicles or add a few more bikers to accompany Jetek Suberei.
Please share your miniatures with us via our Flickr pool here. Some may find their way onto this very blog.
