Ever since reading about the Deathwatch, I have been totally in love with the best of the best of the best.
The idea that there is an elite within the elite, who fly around the universe squashing all kinds of bugs just appeals to me on a cellular level. I was over the moon when GW have released deathwatch as a standalone faction now (although whether 40K really needed another stand alone faction of space marines is another argument entirely!)
What has stood out since though, is that most of the models that can be bought consist of the models themselves, and a deathwatch upgrade sprue... which happened to get me thinking (dangerous for both wallet and health)\;
So the upgrade frame has plenty of bolters, enough pads for a normal squad as well as some other bits and pieces there. The terminator captain that comes with one of these is just £15 (GB) and comes with one such sprue....
I feel like this is a steal as you now have a captain and the ability to mod existing space marines, or upgrade a completely new squad.
thoughts? - are the deathwatch a worthwhile investment, and will anyone here be starting their own kill team?
