So I upgraded my original vow and now it reads,

GREEN = COMPLETE !!!!!

“I, Grotsmasha, answer the challenge of the Unforgiven and vow to complete:

Points: 220

1 x Supreme Grand Master Azrael
Points: 225

1 x Interrogator-Chaplain (Asmodai)
=>Plasma Pistol
Points: 135

Original Vow: 355/580 Complete

--------------------------
VOW EXTENSION 1

2 x Company Veterans Squads
=> 5 Veterans with twin Lightning Claws, Combat Shields and Meltabombs.

1x Company Master (GotC)

Great looking conversions and paintjobs - I would maybe tone down the blue highlights a bit as they give the feel that the whole model is blue and not black.
I'm just not sold on the shield mounted on the backs of the lightning claws. Maybe if they were a little smaller as they do seem to dwarf the claw...........

Anyway, I'll be keeping an eye on this thread to see what else you come up with.

Cheers Lestat, the highlights are straight Necron Abyss, for what ever reason my camera (HTC Desire) seems to massively increase the contrast, irl you really need to pick up the models to see it. Having said that I may Nuln Oil the highlights anyway. As for the shields, they are their purely for WYSIWYG for ETL painting challange and most accurately match the combat shield for size. I did toy with Termi shoulder shields but they looked silly and were to small.

Cheers,
Jono

Your Power Weapon/Shield guys are epic. Great posing. I may have to buy/sculpt some fists icons to use as sheilds for an upcoming expansion to my Gatekeepers.

Great stuff GrotSmasha. I particularly like the third one.

Is there any particularly reason why you gave them various lens colours?

Thanks for the kind words guys,
@ Kierdale: The idea was to represent different combat filters, but it hasn't worked so well with the mkIII's, I quite like it on the IV's though....

Here we go, 2nd Razor for the MkIII vets

Congratulations man, great job! It's always nice adding finished models to the army, yeah?

I especially like the banner and the red wings on the helmet. Can' wait to see that captain painted up too. Nice conversion there.

Did I forget to mention I'll be doing my next couple of vows flat-out?

Vow 2 Complete!!!

So this guy was painted with the Silver Skulls Captain Daerys Arrun from The Gildar Rift novel by Sarah Cawkwell.

EDIT
Posted Image

Due to a P.M. suggesting my Vow completions could be challenged should I continue to not paint the back-banners, I have decided I shall paint the banners...all of them...image updated.
END EDIT


On that note, my official 3rd vow,

“I Grotsmasha, answer the challenge of the Unforgiven and vow to complete:

1x Company Master with Thunder Hammer and Melta-Bombs

Posted Image

from Codex: Dark Angels of total value 135pts on or before August 15. Success will bring eternal glory to Unforgiven Legion and failure will doom me to bear the sign of damnation until the year-end”

This guy'll be a Disiple of Caliban I think...look for him to be done, 2-3 days tops...

Cheers,
Jono
