so here I am, off on another tangent, starting yet again another new facet, before finishing any of the old....
DeathWatch Character/Marine seconded from the Blood Angels 5th Company.
the reality is, I wanted to make one, make him really kewl, and I had a ton of spare cool Blood Angels bits kicking around.... so onwards with this "build/paint", and we'll see if I actually get all the way through it ;)
First up, the inspiration, ya the waepons are going to be different, and mine will be way more ornate...but this was a leaping off point.... so the thinking is pretty traditional color scheme. Black marine, silver & gold left arm and pad, Red BA heritage right pad, jumpack and armor details, blue bladed force weapon, undecided on gun.
So then here's where we start in the real world...the associated bits and resin base L-R we have a fancy BA shoulder pad, DW metal head, a mish mash of BA, Generic, Black Templar and Forgewrold parts put together to make a jump pack, a DW shoulder pad and a resin base from Back 2 Base-ix Rubble series
and the beginnings of the marine proper. Likely I'll add the head from above and paint him as is, with the pads, pack and base being painted off model
