Thread: My "About Time" Dark Angels Thread

    Default My "About Time" Dark Angels Thread

    Well, it was about time I started a thread about my stalled army project, hoping that it will kick my butt into getting going.

    Short(ish) story : Long time lurker on these forums etc etc. I started playing 40K at the end of RT era, and got heavily into it with 2nd Edition, first with Ultramarines, then Dark Angels later due to the circle of players I battled (Space Wolves, 2 x Ultramarines (me and Another), Blood Angels..). This happened around the time the Angels of Death Codex was released, so mid 90's at this point? I moved briefly onto Tyranids, but fell out of love with the game (due to the discovery of girls and alcohol!). A few years ago, I popped into my local GW store and my better half brought me set of 5 SM's and a paint set as a surprise. Soon after, she fell pregnant, and I decided not to take up the hobby until around two months ago, when I decided to dive in feet first, and get the Dark Angel Army I had always wanted as a kid.

    So, that's where I am today. Oh, and just to add more mini's, my Wife brought me the Dark Vengeance Boxset for Christmas

    First : Army List, then some progress pictures taken today. Hopefully they aren't too bad. I'm pretty shocking when it comes to photography ( and Painting! ), but hopefully some tips from the experts around here would help. I hope to update this list whenever I make some meaningful progress. So, maybe next updated Feb 2016?

    Whole Army (Minus Land Raider and Razorback that are still on sprues!

    The only completed Squad!

    My in-progress Belial. The base is a few skeletons and some parts of a "Hero Basing" kit from Ebay, some Gravel, and some putty / Jabberwocky to fill in and make it look nice.

    My Deathing Knights - undercoated Black when I bought them (I undercoat Grey by preference), so their colours are slightly different. I'm hoping when finished you can't tell.

    Deathwing Assault! It's a good job I personally love painting DW!

    My 5 Assault Troops, still mounted on Corks, as their bases have only just arrived. I wanted to mount them on scenic bases, larger than normal bases just to be different

    Close up of the Assault Squad Sergeant.

    Dreadnought. The weapons aren't secured to allow change. The leg armour / Face is missing as I ordered DA specific ones that haven't arrived yet.

    Rhino, just waiting on top doors to be painted with a tactical Arrow, and some more details prior to being "dirtied"

    The reason everything takes me so long. I'm a slow painter, but I like to make sure all the details that matter are painted.

    So, any ideas / Critiques / comments are more than welcome. And if anyone knows how to rotate pictures I would love to know!

    I'm seeing some mold lines, a long arms and backpacks. I would look at painting the rubber bits at the elbows and knees black. Other then that looking good.
