The Completed Deathwing- Lots of Photos

Here are the shots of the completed Deathwing. Click on the images for a larger picture. Here are the links to the tutorial in case you missed it.

Here's the whole army I painted. It adds up to 27 models plus two Landraiders not pictured.

A Thunderhammer/Stormshield Terminator. I used Asurmen Blue wash on the Thunderhammers to make them stand out.

For this guy, I used an experimental technique on his sword. I got the paint really wet on the sword, then swirled in a lighter color. I am still working on the technique, so I'll post some better pictures when I master it.

Here is the Librarian. It is the old model, but still full of detail. I had a lot of fun with this one.

The tricky part was making him look like part of the army even though he has blue armor. I resolved to make his shoulder and gun bone white.

To do the axe detailing I used a slow-dry medium and simply got lighter as I got to the end of the design.

Finally, the Company Master Belial. I know it's not the actual Belial but it still works. I still have to make a banner for him, but I'll do that later.

For the sword, the fluff says that the Sword of Silence was crafted out of part of the same black obsidian as the Lion's, so I went with black and a green highlight. I also tried to make the armor and gun more ornate to make him stand out. When I get around to doing the banner that will help him stand out as well.

You can get a good view of the sword here. It actually wasn't near as tricky as I thought it would be. Just some slow-dry medium and a gradual blending. I tried to keep it subtle as everything else is ornate. I like the effect as its simplicity makes it stand out against the rest of the model.


  1. Woohoo Deathwing! Great stuff mate!

  2. Those old metal Librarian and Captain models are great - I have them both - the Librarian was my first ever miniature.

    Good work on the Death Wing.

  3. Very nice to see a finished force. Well done.

  4. Now you just need an Interigator Chaplain. Do you have a list for these guys.

  5. Is it just me, or is "Belial's" sword bent?

  7. Thanks for the compliments everyone.

    Eriochrome- This isn't my list, I painted these for a friend. He is starting to think about running an all-deathwing army instead of what he normally runs. I'll see if I can put one of his new lists up.

    AoM- you are correct, the sword is bent. It is only a very slight bend, however. I attempted to get it back straight but couldn't get it perfect. Anyone got some advice on how to bend pewter without stressing the metal?

  8. The only way I know to do it without damaging the model is to apply equal pressure to both parts of the piece to bend. Push on the tip of the sword as well as the base of it from the other side until it starts to straighten up. Don't push too hard though!

  9. Yeah, its sometimes difficult to bend a model straight without causing more damage!


  10. I haven't got a fixed list yet. I'm still experimenting. I take what you see usually. It's a pretty good mix of assault and shooty. I also have the two Deathwing Landraiders that I take depending on the size of the game and the need.
