Greetings Fraters of the B&C. Here are some pics of the army I'm currently painting up and I apologize for the picture overload, but this is my first time. Be gentle. biggrin.gif

My Chapter is a Successor from the Dark Angels/Angels of Vengeance. Most of my army is undergoing repainting to get it in line with the color scheme I have revised for my units (New scheme posted):

Battle Companies:
Normal marine:
gallery_59244_5847_8471.jpg

Vet. Sergeant (can be a Deathwalker Candidate or a former Deathwalker):
gallery_59244_5847_23616.jpg or gallery_59244_5847_36235.jpg

Company Vets:
gallery_59244_5847_23616.jpg

Command squads (majority will be former Deathwalkers, one or two may be Candidates that are about to be inducted into the 1st Company) & Company Master:
gallery_59244_5847_36235.jpg

2nd Company - Boneseekers
Normal biker (generally considered "more" veteran):
gallery_59244_5847_4424.jpg

Boneseekers Veterans (similar to the Company Veterans idea - I'm hoping there is a new 2nd Company Vets squad in a new Codex):
gallery_59244_5847_35764.jpg

Vet. Sergeant (will all be Deathwalker Candidates or returning Deathwalkers):
gallery_59244_5847_35764.jpg or gallery_59244_5847_37272.jpg

Command squads (per Battle companies) & Master of the 2nd (this will probably be a little more unique than this in some way, but look very similar):
gallery_59244_5847_37272.jpg

1st Company - Deathwalkers
Normal Termie:
gallery_59244_6371_16613.jpg

Sergeant, Command Squad (will look the same, but with a red helm stripe)

Master of the 1st (trying to come up with something slightly more unique for him)


Current Army Shot (minus WIP Landspeeder):
gallery_59244_5847_167014.jpg

The horde cometh:
gallery_59244_5847_46756.jpg

Predator:
gallery_59244_5847_48504.jpg

gallery_59244_5847_144536.jpg

Dreadnought:
gallery_59244_5847_57539.jpg

gallery_59244_5847_98540.jpg

With Missile Launcher replacing DCCW:
gallery_59244_5847_61559.jpg

We don't talk about the poor lone Assault Marine. His greaves and chainsword are still the wrong color and none of his compatriots have had any love (they are all still waiting to be repainted).

Very nice work. It looks like these guys are Dark Angels successors, and if they are, where are the bikes? And bring on the rest of the assault squad, we are the angels of death after all.

Command Squad (all of these are going to be redone with the Deathwalker Veteran Battle Company Command scheme, except the Apothecary will be 1/2 white, 1/2 bone on the helmet):

Company Commander:

His sword icons need to be painted/repainted with the burning sword icon of the Chapter.

Company Standard Bearer:
No idea what to paint for the banner. The sword the angel is holding on the top of the standard is also going to be repainted from gold to the burning sword iconography for the Chapter.

Start of my Fast Attack options:

Boneseeker 'Talon' Pattern Landspeeder (Tornado w/Heavy Bolter and Assault Cannon):
Posted Image

Pilot:
Posted Image

Gunner's Seat (and my slowly improving gems):
Posted Image

"Relay to 3rd Company Commander, we have an enemy contact."
Posted Image

As you can see, in addition to the repainting efforts, the Landspeeder still has a bit to go. I'm still puzzling over how to paint the bikes themselves.

Also, the Land Raider Crusader will likely be stripped completely down and most, if not all, of the old metal components will be removed. It will then be repainted to match the Deathwalkers (black with bone detailing).

DarKHaZZ13, thanks for the idea. I hate that head. I am thinking of tearing it out with some pliers or something, just so he knows how much I hate his head. :lol: Hopefully the Grey Knights will give me some adequate parts to make a suitable Master of the Deathwalkers, if not, I guess I'm sticking a normal Termi head on that model.

Comments and critiques are welcome. If anyone can give me some good ideas on highlighting the black, I'd very much welcome them, because I do/have done very little highlighting, and while I have a wet palette, I haven't gotten much experience with layering/wet blending (and I have plenty of old Deathwing Terminators to test things on). I'd rather not go with extreme edge highlighting, because I'm worried the black will end up looking almost Tron-like (and while I love Tron, it doesn't strike me as 40K-appropriate).

This is possibly the coolest DIY chapter I've seen in a long, long time. Not only is the name absolutely badass (and avoids all the tired cliches), but the scheme is also menacing and recalls both the modern Dark Angels and the pre-Heresy ones.

The Deathwing equivalents look great, very fluffy. However, what really strikes me are the robed Deathwalker Candidates. Wearing those hoods, the Candidates' helmet stripes make them look downright terrifiying. I'd hate to be a Fallen with one of those guys bearing down on me...

Good luck with the repainting updates, I know how much of a pain in the neck that can be. Looking forward to more pics!

EDIT: just realised the Dune reference, derp! :D

Okay, got the first of the Deathwalkers almost completely done (just missing re-basing, which will wait until more of the army is done, writing on the name scroll, and possibly some highlighting/battle damage on the black armor):

360 of the Deathwalker:

Sadly, I know there are quite a few mold lines that just didn't come off back before I started painting this guy, but at this point, I think it would do more harm than good to remove them and repaint again, plus this one is definitely going to be one of the guys in one of the squads in the back on the table top.

Thoughts, comments, criticism? Basing ideas?

These are looking REALLY good, especially the Bone and the clean and crisp white! Now I don’t know if this is because of the picture quality or just lack of, but I don’t seem to see any highlighting or etc. on your green/black armor. If that were a little more prominent or actually there it would make your models all the more awesome! Good job!

This is a really cool army I wasnt sure at first glance but as I read further I found I liked the scheme and funny quips for each character. For the termie you should put "dont you dare get your blood on my shoes heretic!"

LOL, Terminatorinhell, your stuff is great, so thanks for the comments! I've been looking at SCC's Raven Guard painting guide to use for highlighting my black armor. Hopefully I'll get a bit of that done before I get the bug to start working on yet another squad. Or I may save it and wait until I get some of my biker Boneseekers done.

If I don't dirty up the units, I may just use that quip. :D

They look great. Well done sir.

My only suggestion would be to base the models. As they are quite dark I think some pale brown earth/rocks with a light static grass in places would look real good as it would contrast nicely and make your models 'pop'.

Again .. they look good. Your whites are smooth!

All excellent, except one little thing.....The Heavy Bolter shells on the Landspeeder. They look awful small to be ammo for a great big gun like that ;)

Also I like the bases, The colour and style compliment the troops.

Thanks Razblood! The bases turned out better than I thought they might. I'll probably try and alternate some of the coloration from the drybrushing on the rock to get some variation going on them.

I completely agree with you on the HB ammo belt, but unfortunately, that's the ammo bit that came with all my Speeders when I bought them years ago. B)

So, finally started to work on some new stuff after some serious dragging of my feet due to having used some black base coat + primer spray paint mix that left a ton of bubbled paint obscuring detail on my bikes. Got the bikes somewhat stripped back, but been irritated at them so I went back to some of my Deathwing analog:

Painted over the glossy black basecoat with a matte black and attempted some very dark grey edge highlights with a starker bright highlight. This is my first attempt ever (yes, in over 15 years of painting 40K stuff) at doing this, so I really would like some feedback on what you guys think. I liked the idea of adding some battle damage with some boltgun, just haven't been brave enough for it yet.

Holy crap, someone stole my arms!
Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

:): There they are! Someone ripped them off and stuck these sticky metal things in them! And my pauldrons too!

(This was my first attempt at magnetizing, got 5 of them done, and so far, I think they are all working pretty awesomely!)

Take him to Cell 42, this Chaos Spawn sprouted extra arms! Repent, Fallen!

LOL, my wife was making similar comments, so I have since revised the scheme to not having "bone white shoes," as she and others have put it.

Why does my face look so blurry? Hope you guys can still make out the details:

Indoors, more oblique light through a window:
Posted ImagePosted Image

I have two sets of highlights I'm looking at doing still, a 1:1 mix of Bleached Bone:Skull White on just the edges as a thin (hopefully) edge highlight, and then a pure Skull White highlight on just the tips/corners/highest points.

CnC? I've tried to give a bit more depth to the bone. More pictures of the squad can be found here: DA Forum Stoneburners WiP

I think that one has my best gem ever.

The blending looks a lot less stark IRL than in these images, but I think it still shows the bone pretty well. At this point, only one of them has the Skull White highlights on just the tips and brightest points, but unless someone can actually pick it out, I don't really think these guys need it all that much. The 1:1 Bleached Bone:Skull White seemed to provide enough of a highlight to me. CnC?

Okay, finally got the detailing work on the bodies done so that I can get to work on the arms! Unfortunately we have a probably terminal pup at home, so that's been taking up a lot of our energy.

Enough of that, on to the show!

I realized that given the proximity of the bone details to some of the purity seals, I needed something other than the normal Graveyard Earth -> Bleached Bone -> Skull White just wouldn't look that great or contrasting, so I searched for a bit to find something I could use instead, and I think what I found I like even more. Not sure that it will work as well on my power armored guys, especially those with the "robes" because it will probably look quite a bit like those, but I'm going to give it a shot next time. These seals are Graveyard Earth -> 1:1 GE/Kommando Khaki -> Kommando Khaki, then a wash over all with Gryphonne Sepia, a second wash in the recesses with G-Sepia, and a re-highlight with Kommando Khaki. The "writing" is done with Scorched Brown. I highlighted the rope belts (already Bestial Brown with a Devlan Mud wash) with Vermin Brown, and considered giving them a touch of Bubonic Brown, but decided that they are more recessed most everywhere, so I'm going to have to carefully look and consider before I do that (that's a small touch I can do later when I touch up the highlighting on the main body).

Chest Crux Terminator:

Crossed Bones Terminator (with purity seal view):

Cyclone Launcher Terminator (with purity seal view):

Shiny Knee Crux Terminator (with purity seal view):
Posted ImagePosted Image

And finally, the sergeant... Mr. Red Stripe himself!
Posted ImagePosted Image
(Hooray beer! ;))

Hope you guys like them! At this point, I'm considering these guys done. Enough time put in on them, time to move on to the arms! Any CnC will be welcomed though, as I will be coming back for a final touch up pass before I put them into the Hall of Honor. I'm also researching some conversion ideas and trying to come up with some inspired by the DA art (and probably liberally lifting from some fellows on this great site), but I'm not sure if I'm going to try any of them on this particular set of Terminators or just move on and see what happens with later ones.
