Well, I have been hard at work improving my camera skills, and it seems to have paid off.
First up, thanks for the compliments. The Sergeant, and in fact the whole squad, are made using pieces from the Command Squad, Commander, and Tactical marine sprues, as well as some bits from the Space Wolf, Black Templars and Dark Angels upgrade sprues for some of the members. The specialised bolters use the ammo hopper from the SM vehicle sprue's storm bolter, and the sergeant's left arm is the one more often found holding a missile launcher.
I don't really intend to take many vehicles, so that's not really a problem. As for jump pack troops, there is nothing to stop an Assault Marine being seconded to the Deathwatch, so rather than force them to use a bolter, they would be banded together in to small, specialised units. For this reason, I intend to have only one Assault Squad, which will consist of only five marines. I do plan to have a squad of Vanguard veterans as well, but I figure that has more to do with the inevitable numbers of power weapons that Marines recalled to the Deathwatch would have. Suicidal missions or not, I do want some of them to survive!
So, on to the pics, and apologies for the number of them.

I have also been working on the first of my Inquisitor's henchmen. Yep, it is a beastman in Guard's clothing...
C&C welcome as usual, and I hope you enjoy them.
