Hobby Update 16/11/20- Deathwatch Primaris Outrider Squad

 Today's Hobby Update features an Outrider Squad for my Deathwatch army. 

Outriders have some great bonuses in a Kill Team for the Deathwatch. First off, you can field them in units of up to 5, compared to the limit of 3 for normal Marine armies. Second, thanks to the Kill Team mechanic, this squad gains objective secured, making them great for taking objectives from your opponent. They can also do some weird movement tricks thanks to gaining the infantry keyword, but I expect this to be FAQ'd at some point in the future. 

For one of the Bikers, I decided to replace the Chainsword with a Heavy Bolt Pistol, just to add a bit of variety to the models. 


  1. Looking good Mike! I can’t believe Deathwatch get to ignore the 3 model limit on these guys when codex forces don’t. (Insert Kevin and Perry ‘so unfair’ gif here!)

    Looking good though, the red casings on the weapons look great!

    1. Yeah, the Deathwatch get some nice bonuses to be able to pick the bigger squads.

    2. I was wondering how you were going to get away with converting one models to Chaplain!

    3. Haha! All part of my cunning plan Steve! I was originally going to add 3 to my Ravenwing force, but decided to go all Deathwatch for now.
