Kris’ Deathwatch

Kris and Ant have been painting the contents of the Deathmasque box and playing the missions detailed within. This weekend we will be showing you their armies and next week we will share the first of the games they played.

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.
