As stated in the last post I've been severely bitten by the the Kill Team bug. Here's battle brother three and four for my Deathwatch kill team who will join Sergeant Dukas and Brother Desplat made previously.

 If I could I'd arm the lot of them with shotguns as reivers with shotguns are my new absolute favourite thing - there's something so quintessentially badass about that combo. These guys will be fielded as regular deathwatch marines - I just use the primaris to give them a proper scale.

I've also cobbled together a custom Kill Team battlefield/killzone. It’s made out of a 60x90 cm cork notice board - more or less the perfect size for a kill team board and it comes with a sturdy wood frame and everything.

The topographical variations are made from cork sheets glued on with PVA glue. The board was then strategically sprinkled with pebbles and some debris, painted with vallejo textured paint (which is great - especially as it it's cheap and comes in a huge 200 ML jar), sprayed with GW grey and khaki and then drybrushed with light grey. To finish it off some powders were applied to give a more realistic look.


  1. Wow, that is a brilliant idea for a board, might just have to completely rip you off on that :)

  2. Those look sweet! I might have to borrow the idea for a "true scale" DW Kill Team myself.

    My display/transport board that I use when I go to events was also done on the a cork pin board, but I used the back, and when I've got a big gap between events, it hangs up as a pin board, so it's nicely out of the way!

  3. The Deathwatch are up to your usual high standards, and that board is a lovely piece of work.

  4. Lovely work all round. I'll probably be stealing the pinboard idea as well. ;-)

  5. Brilliant stuff. The Deathwatch look superb. But love the cork board.

  6. Cheers guys! Glad you approve!

  7. Fantastic Kill Team. Currently working on a Deathwatch one myself. The idea for the board is ace! Sorry, but I have to build one too! Brilliant :-)

  8. Great idea on the cork board.. it all looks great!

  9. So happy to see you back at it! Great work, as usual. But I do hope those Nighthaunt won't be forgotten. ;)

    1. Oh, I’ll get back to them eventually... They’re too fun to stay away from!

  10. Haha! Right out of the Deathwatch kit!

  11. Love this kill team! I especially love the way you paint steel/silver, giving it brown hues instead of blueish. It suits dark, dangerous battles.
    Also don't know what I enjoy more, the badass Reiver head or the menacing helm!

    The board looks very cool too, fits the dusty appearance of your deathwatch! You inspired me. Maybe I'll try to make one too one day!

    Unrelated thing: I wanted to put a similar copyright on my blog like you have down there. But I can't seem to fit that much info in the copyright footer Blogger offers. How did you do?

  12. Oh my goodness, this look is amazing. Really inspiring me for some of my own kill teams.

  13. I absolutely love the dirty black and red look you get on your miniatures Jeff. Have you ever done a tutorial on how you do it?

  14. As "Wordmercenary" said, would also love a tutorial or short introduction into your way of painting the Deathwatch.

  16. My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough. here is his Email: or call/text him on his WhatsApp +2347012841542

    He is also able to cast spell like 1: Lottery 2: Conceive 3: Breakup 4: Divorce 5: Cure for all kinds of diseases and viruses.


  17. That is a very good tip especially to those new to the blogosphere.
    Short but very accurate info… Appreciate your sharing this one. A must read post.

  18. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC ( in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
