The Ebon Dawn
Ordo Xenos, Deathwatch
There are three factions of Inquisition. One is the Ordo Xenos, the Alien Hunters. In 4th edition there was a chapter approved article that allowed the use of Kill Teams. But even then they were not widely accepted in Tourney play. In 5th edition there is nothing and no hints of anything coming. So those of us who play Deathwatch have one simple choice... which codex to use to represent our army. I choose the Blood Angels codex, and do so after experimenting with all the others to find the one that best suits me.
My army is inspired by the work of Sai King (Stephen King). Ka-tet means a group brought together by fate. Ebon Dawn has 2 meanings. They are warriors of the White (Dawn, the White is the forces of good) wearing black armor (ebon). The 2nd meaning is akin to the saying 'the darkness before the dawn', the Ka-tet are (or at least believe themselves to be) one of the key forces that will save humanity from this dark age of strife into a new golden age of peace.
Due to recent postings I ask for this simple rule to be followed. My gallery is not for debates on rules. Its for my work. There are plenty of fine forums out there to debate rules. My Ka-tet is a DiY Deathwatch force which I've put alot of effort into and I'd like to keep the comments about the models themselves. Now if you seen that I've for some reason designed something that is against the rules of the BA codex, feel free to politely point it out to me. Last thing I need is to go to a game and found out I'm going to field something illegal. I have little patience for those who go against this.
