thanks for the replys , im currently in the process of with all 4 characters , the contemptor and 5 terminators, I really like the off black scheme ive got going on with these guys ,and i feel it really suits the dark angels.

im keeping these tacticals very plain as I can imagine as there was so many back then that would have been how they were.

im planning on another calth box set,
my plan is to up the 2x 15 man tactical to 20 men then buy the forge world upgrade kits( torso, head , pad) and make 2 x 10 vet squads , which will give me a solid base army for when the dark angels get specialist units,

more pics to follow in a few days
cheers all

I really like the dirty/dusty look you got going on those minis. Also black looks cool not flat and not gray - good job!
