The OS Death Watch were the ones with the funky raised visor and the wings on the bucket, http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Death_Watch the ones in the Mandalorian Civil War, rather than the Clone Wars.

I had a big resource of links I had put aside for this for Ijaat's "DW" styled kit. Links to all the frames/pics showing the Death Watch in Open Season, and some assorted OS style DW helmet builds. I'll post those up when I find them again for you guys!

I-guess  with  no  old DW-Style helmet     and no  DW-symbol  you would  either be  a "true mandalorian"  or just a generic mandalorian Mercenary. 

With symbol  on, for example your shoulder, you would   be   a  Death-watch mando   like   Priest  or Reau       which could only be categorized  by  there  blue DW-symbol.

The Deathwatch were originally formed as a splitter group from Jaster's True Mandalorians andhad the funky helmet. They were also said to have a penchant for crush gaunts.

The next group we see are the TCW DW which I think we all know pretty well how they look.

Finally, we know of a 3rd incarnation of the DW post TCW. Where Priest and Reau are seen with now a Blue DW "W" on their shoulder plates.

There are no other factions.

For the sake of brigades, I believe we need or could have an OS DW group a TCW DW group and due to the custom nature of the post CW DW, perhaps a DW influenced group which basically would just require the wearing a blue DW sigil. I think just about the whole Florida Clan fits in here! LMAO!

well A'den I am already into my third build enough that i really don't want to shift gears too much, doing a custom modern with deathwatch influenced colors and design, it''ll make my current kit look like a kids creation with whats in work, so if a blue DW symbol is the way to go VS and orange then there should not be a problem.

If you want just the Death Watch images I can gather them for y'all here as well.

Technically, you could add Star Wars Galaxies DeathWatch armor to this list also. 


The Deathwatch were originally formed as a splitter group from Jaster's True Mandalorians andhad the funky helmet. They were also said to have a penchant for crush gaunts.

The next group we see are the TCW DW which I think we all know pretty well how they look.

Well, as soon as my Kama gets here.  Looks like i'll be, kinda, fitting in with the Priest/Rau group of DW.  Shame that my DW symbol is going to be black... meh :(

Isnt it safe to say that Death Watch and True Mandalorian differ only by ideals and faction branding? some of Tor's gang had that funky helmet but I dont think that means all of them had to. Realisticly they probably wore the same gear pre civil war as they did after. I doubt they went shoping together when they parted ways for a new snazzy uniform. Costume wise i'd argue standard Mando with a DW brand is the difference. Things like the funky helmet would just be individual differences just like all factions of Mandalorians have.

just my 2 cents

oh and dont base colors off comics, artist will vary colors often to illustrate surroundings or lighting. One panel they are grey, next blue, and the next purple or black.... Unless its writen canon or obviously consistant I wouldnt focus on "Deathwatch colors", exception being the SWG deathwatch and thier title/rank based color scheme

Colors I don't think are significant as Dose has pointed out. However, the Deathwatch has been portrayed in canon in a couple different ways...

The OS Deathwatch which are all depicted with their helmet design, darker colors and W markings.
The TCW Deathwatch which are allt he animated style and have a cookie cutter color and armor pattern.
The SWG Deathwatch which has a distinct armor style but also int he general Mandalorian armor for the game and not being one that has played I really can't say what differences beyond the armor there is
And finally the Deathwatch as portrayed in the RC books... which essentially fits right into our custom ideals of this club, anything goes, with the Deathwatch W.

For the Tor Vizsla Deathwatch, at least fro brigade membership not neccesarily club membership, the colors need to be consistant with the comic art and the helmet is a must.

I've been thinking about doing Tor Vizsla at some point.

I like evolutions in my collection.

I've got a Holiday Special Boba, RotJ Boba, Jango, Pre Vizsla. A PrePro Boba is on the way.

Rex came about because of the connection to the PrePro Boba jaig eyes. That led to 7 clones in the house.

The idea of having a predecessor to Pre Vizsla seems pretty cool, and it's a funky looking helmet. I definitely wouldn't want to use any standard Fett style armor though... all custom.
