Default My Dark Angels, a bit pic heavy

I'd though I'll show of my dark angels in a little more detail here. I've kept them very dark, all their kit is painted tin bitz, quite a lot of dark shadows, the only thing that really contrasts are those in the robes. and yes I know, I've not done the bases on them! I've got lots of bases to do!

Very cool, very clean style.

The only thing I can suggest is possibly either highlighting or washing the models OR both.

otherwise, awesome!

I have started highlighting and washing now with the bigger scale guys, might go back to the angels later on, I've still got some command figures, a land raider and some ravenwing to do, but the bulk of the troops are good for battle at least! even though they got beaten by a bloody orc warlord last game.. grr! impossible to kill!

I like it. the tin bitz really wqorks on some parts, Which surprises me. I don't really like the colour but it works for you well. I especially love the deveastator sergeant's sword. looks really nice. very clean paint job but the land speeder looks a bit over sprayed. Or it could be dust

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Damn nature, You Scary!!!

That can't be a Dark Angels army! I saw no bikes or terminators!

Have guns, will travel...

Ecellent DA army. I really like the robes, looks like you did them a little darker then most I've seen. More tan/brown, most I've seen lean more towards white/bone. I think the darker color goes better with the DA green and gives them a darker looker overall. Good work, painting and color choice. Yeah I didn't dust off some of my tanks when I took pics of them, it amazing how much the camera will show.
