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!

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]...

These look ace, the only crit I have is the red, it looks too thick in my opinion. Simple fix, just water it down some more.

I really like the stuff! +Rep

a digital slr is an unforgiving mistress

@ marneus calgar - damn the camera, they should look more orange. and i absolutely agree, the paint is too thick...possibly through lack of patience. practice will make perfect [hopefully!] :victory:

They do look pretty orange, but most people paint them red and they appear orangy. I think that you will probably get the orange looking awesome in no time.

Good work, nice and clean, simple and effective, what's not to like? I dig the terms in particular as they are really well done. One suggestion I do have however is regarding the cloaks the regular marines are wearing and that is to tone down the highlights just a bit. To me they seem to go a bit too far to white, just a tad.

Whoa, they are awesome! Some of the best Dark Angels I have seen, bar me of course:laugh: the Marine with the wings on his helm looks badass! Keep up the good work mate, I look forwards to seeing more of these!
