The last HQ option that really benefits a Deathwing army is the Supreme Grand Master Azrael. Most importantly, he unlocks not only Deathwing, but also Ravenwing as Troop choices. This encourages a “Doublewing” army, taking advantage of Deathwing Assault and the Ravenwings’ teleport homers. He also has the old Rite of Battle (4th edition Space Marine codex!) rule that allows the entire army to use his leadership. Additionally, he can pick his Warlord trait from the Dark Angel specific table. His model is a classic that has stood the test of time (who doesn't love that little Watcher in the Dark?). Despite all of this and in the interest of only using terminator armour, I do not think I will use him that frequently. If I experiment with using a lot of Ravenwing, however, I will seriously consider adding him into my army's ranks.
Great idea using the TH arm for the Force Sword!ReplyDelete
Did you ever make any progress with Belial?
Yeah I was pleased with how the sword turned out. It has been a long time since I did the conversion, and I have gotten a lot more ambitious with what I attempt now. In that vain, I wish I could say I started to work on the new Belial, but I have not gotten to it yet. I am still kicking around ideas, waiting for a muse to strike me. The last work on the Deathwing was a joint venture between Adam and I creating a banner bearer for a DW command squad.Delete
