At the wonderful local game store AFK, you can sometimes find Thomas, who is proud to play Deathwatch. After several heated games, he made a request.
He wanted an Azure Flames shoulder pad so that one of the Flames could join the Deathwatch.
It took me a while but I eventually found an older pad on a disused marine.
The pad was awful.
So, I tidied up the paint job and delivered it to Thomas. Here's the result:
This as-yet-unnamed Battle Brother is joining the ranks of the Deathwatch to fight aliens with a signature Bolter-Melta. How will he fare? Hopefully better once the Deathwatch get their Psychic Awakening book and become somewhat competitive again.
Next: a special surprise!
