Deathwatch: Overkill is here! Today we look at assembly and sprues of each member of the mighty Deathwatch Killteam.
Welcome to Deathwatch: Overkill Week here on BoLS! Over the next few days we will be going over every aspect of the new game, from the rules to to the minis, to the game itself and everything in between. Check back in every day for everything you wanted to know about the biggest product GW has produced this year.
Today we wade into the deathwatch minis themselves and their assembly. Let’s get started!
Special note: These are all high resolution images, click to see all the details.
First off, we shall take a look at the Deathwatch assembly instructions. These minis are dripping in detail and each one would make a fantastic HQ in a marine army. The fit and finish of the models is superb and they fit together like glove with the assembly seams well hidden once glued. Top notch work from GW as usual.
Chaplain Cassius and the Blood angel’s Antor Delassio are up first.
Next up is Blood Ravens, Dark Angels Imperial Fists, and Iron Hands
Raven Guard, Salamanders (in termy armor!), Space Wolves and Ultramarines up next.
Last but certainly not least is the White Scar’s Suberai (and his cyber eagle)
The first of the three Dwathwatch sprues contains Suberai, Sorrlokk, and Grytt. I hope to see Grytt’s belt fed grenade launcher making it’s way into future Astartes arsenals. It looks awesome!
Sprue 2 contains Cassius, the hulking Branatar, the Blood Raven’s Natorian and the Unforgiven Gydrael.
Sprue 3 rounds it out with the two jump pack users from the Blood Angels and Raven Guard, Ultramarine sharpshooter Donatus and the hot-headed Redblade of the Space Wolves.
