Icon dark angels seventh - a returning wargamer's plog

after a 10 year absence from the hobby, i found myself with some disposable income and, riding a wave of nostalgia that has seen me returning to a lot of things i enjoyed when i was younger, i dove headfirst back into the hobby by deciding to paint [and eventually game with!] the dark angels army i always planned, but never managed to start.

well, i've started now [better late than never], and i'd like to share the results with community. i would really appreciate feedback and [constructive] criticism...to let me know where i'm going wrong. hope you enjoy reading / looking as much i've enjoyed painting!

Default wip - up next...

the last of the terminator squad, and a mock up of a sergeant for a devastator squad [just a bit of kit-bashing, but any thoughts on the pose are most welcome]...
