Time to get something started for myself in here. I know I won't have a lot of time so updates will not be frequently.

But I did take the time to paint a Ravenwing Attack bike

The Weapons were painted too, but I still have to start messing around with magnets, since I want to design my future models to be more modular.

Which is something haven't done at all with these six. Right now I play my Dark Angels as C:SM Marines, since I don't have the Terminators yet to play a proper DA army. May the Lion forgive me. I still need to do some stuffing on the arms on a couple of those and I am still pondering if I should paint the robes white or beige.

looking good as for the robes beige would make sense fluff wise.

@ Ozzy: Wow, I took my sweet time to reply...
I built the Combi Meltas out of the combi plasmas from the SM Commander sprue. Simply cut of the muzzle and replace it with one from a regular ol' melta

One of my problems is, that a lot of the colors i am using are basicly rubbish, since they are a couple of years old and quite dry.
Waiting for my mail order of colours. I hope they arrive tomorrow...

Freehand. Cool. The previous pic with the crazy eye is hilarious (you should've kept it), it makes him look suitably mental. HarblegarbleLoganGrimnargl... :)

Grimnar looks great! Lets see a shot of him taking on the boys in dresses! B) I kid brother, but seriously, he looks great! ;)
Lo, there do I see my fallen kinsmen, Threads cut by the foe I now seek. In bloody battle I will engage him, And carve my vengeance from his flesh. No ale shall pass my lips, At no feast will I indulge. No foe shall stay my wrath, Until my brothers are avenged. Ever shall I hunt my quarry, Across the Sea of Stars. Whilst I yet breathe, I will not falter, Until Morkai claims his due.--Bjorn's Oath of the Lone Wolf

By the Lion. The noble, knight like Dark Angels will surely defeat these savage animals.... XD

On the other hand, Logan Grimnar looks better than any Dark Angels I have.
With my Asmodeus conversion being the only fully painted HQ I have.

I'll have to get back to finishing my Terminator Chaplain

Worked on my first Deathwing Terminators yesterday. Took some advise from Ferrus Manus' guide on painting Storm Ghosts. But sinse I didn't have any of the colors he used for the washing, I had to improvise. I painted the TH wielding Terminator first. For the wash I used Flesh Wash and added a drip of Bestial Brown (so it would be matt).
For the one on the left with the TLC, I washed to model using Devlan Mud with a drip of Scroched Brown.
I like the second one better and will stick to that tactic in the future.

I will continue working on my vow and post updates in my other topic.

I finished one of the Terminators.
I like the result, even if it was more about actually painting a Terminator. I know power armours. Terminator armours, not so much.

@kanan: Thanks man. I really want to get some stuff done these coming months, so I might actually be updating this topic :o

I finished an old chaplain I habd lying around. He was basicly done only missing his backpack. I decided to repaint the armour after I saw the horrid highlights...
So I used the saturday NFL playoff games to finish him up.

So, I never bought many Tanks. I have 2 Razorbacks from the Space Marine Army Deal and 2 Predators, only one of which I bought as a single miniature.

But I do still have an old Rhino which I bought for my Black Legion. That was right around the time the current chasis came out.
That was also around the time I started playing. And I sucked at painting back then... and as it turns out, at building the models too.

I had to make the Chaos conversion myself and now I want to repurpose this tank for my current army.

I am starting out with this model:

Posted Image



I will go for an frontmounted assault ramp as seen here:#

Posted Image


After playing around with the model, it quickly became apparent, that I really sucked at using glue.
At this point I was able to disassemble the tank to this kind of mess:

Posted Image


I ordered plasticard and will be messing around for the first time, probably this weekend.
I will post further results.

Some nice stuff going on here :ph34r:

One minor gripe though, on your company vets it seems to me that you may have the Pauldrons (Shoulder Pads) the wrong way round. Chapter badge is usually on the left Pauldron and Squad markings on the right, however they are your models and they do look very good :lol:

Keep it up :)

Hey man, nice looking Angels. Excuse my fluff nazi coming to the fore but.......power armoured DA vets don't bear the Crux Terminus as other Chapters do, it's because they're company vets rather than 1st Co vets.

Great looking models you got there!! Good to see more Dark Angel players.

Keep up the good work!!

I started with the 3rd Edition Dark Angels Codex. In it, Veteren Seargents were equiped with a Crux Terminatus. That's where I got the idea of equiping the Veterans with these shoulder pads.

After finishing my vow, I can return to the rest of my army and other projects. One of which I won't post here, because it's Xenos filth I'm painting for a friend.

Since I have been collecting and painting Warhammer for quite some time now, there is stuff lying around that I bought but may never have used or finished.
Like this can. Never used it...
Posted Image

First Thing I will use it on? An old Droppod I built at my local GW store a good 6 or 7 years back. At that time there weren't any droppod models except for the FW ones. So this is build out or plasticard and stuff. Thinking about adding a bottle cap or stomething as the engine.

Next up are Marines in different stages of painting. I had to touch up the backpack on the Marine with the Flamer and the left Melta Marine was painted and then I added the arms. The right Melta Marine was a salvaging project. I don't even know what I intended for him to carry, but without the arms it just looked awkward.

So,
I started way too late and now I actually have to hurry up to finish my vow.

I vowed to finish my Terminator Chaplian, my Terminator squad and to repaint my Land Raider.
So I started out with this:

I have to get some stuff to strip the LR, so I started with the Terminators
This is an early WIP
