If doing PreHeresy Dark Angels, they were black armoured .

True, though I have been seeing some pre-heresy DA which have black armour with a greenish hue to it. This appeals to me instead of the standard black, as there are already quite a few black armoured legions out there.

Still might want to hold off to see what FW does with them (in a few years). I'm a bit anxious, as I don't like the Asterix and Obelix asthetics of the helmets you see here and there in the art.

Edit: on another sudden flash of inspiration: I will attempt some truescale marines seeing as all the bases are going to be bigger anyway

Right we're back in the game! (Never really left, but always forgot to take pictures.)

Finished my Deathwing Banner bearer for the monthly painting comp here on heresy:



And because I finally got to playing with my GF's camera, as promised some higher quality pictures of some of my older work as well:





It does bring out a lot of flaws in the mini's... Must.. resist.. to do touch up's.

Other than that, I magnetised my first model! My predator can now wield any combination of weaponry. Pictures of that later.

Oh and I also broke apart the chapter master/azrael model I was building earlier, some things are bugging me about it. So I'll have to get back to it.

Interesting to see green deathwing, and great job with that painting too, it looks swell! I am also a huge fan of the inclusion of the gray knight sword, it really gives that veteran character.

Pretty sure his Deathwing in that picture is black?
@Matcap nice to see your updates finally =) how did you shadow the wings on the shield? I'm painting the storm shields on my knights now and they look very flat.

Thanks!

The green dude is indeed my company champion from earlier this year. So no DW there I'm afraid.

@Stormxlr my recipe for the wings is:
VGC Ghost grey + VGC bone white basecoat in 3:1 ratio
Mix 2:1 Badab black (I have an old pot still but I read at several places that Army painter dark tone is a dead on match) + agrax earthshade
Wash all the basecoated area
Highlight back up the original mix

At step 3 you might think you ruined it because it looks really messy, but I find with highlighting it back up again you clean that up nicely.

Hope that helps! Looking forward to seeing your work.

Nice work! Can't wait to see your repaints of the X-Wing stuff!

If you want to ask anything, or are looking for tips on lists and so on then throw a post out into the FFG section. Always happy to help!

90% of people think they are above average.

Awesome! You will love it methinks. Though it is a bit of a web list, try out superdash (Dash Rendar, Outrider title, Heavy Laser Cannon, Kyle Katarn, Push the Limit) for a laugh, and the doom shuttle (Shuttle with Darth suicidal damage dealing on the heavy HP for the Lamda shuttle). Both are pretty amusing.

Thanks guys, I know where to find you for more info!

Repaints are upcoming as soon as I decide on colours and I'm also playing around with building proper asteroid fields, more on those later!
