Looks amazing, and you should totally do it. I had been considering going for another Legion for my Pre-Heresy army, as I hate painting black, but your models really do the Legion justice, and the red breaks things up a lot.
I agree the black is hard to balance, and im properbly goint to try and do fine highlights with a grey.
It looks great, as do your 'nators!
Brother Elmo has some neat versions of vets with FW bits if you are keen to look..
BC Lucian, it doesn't look out of place at all, it looks great! Good luck, hope to see those painted up soon!
Come wednesday and ill get painting again
Marks II and III are my favourites and I love robed Dark Angels so I think they look perfect!
Excatly my thoughts when i bought them
Nice - more awesome sauce please
I am a big fan of the MKIII for the HH DA as it just looks so "knightly".
Personally I would stay with a hessian look robe so a bleached bone colouring. I only put a hood on one of my guys so I did not hit too much of a problem with mine.
You can see them here if you want to: http://www.bolterand...howtopic=265476
Haha, i have a folder where i save inspiration - and its pretty much only the pictures in that thread. Its what convinced me to go for pre heresy DA!
I just gotta figure out how to add power weapons to the sgt.
Bleached bone colouring was the idea aswell, i did consider green but it would darken the model to much i think.
In the meantime, i have till wednesday to prepare 30+ marines for priming.
Last note - thank you all for the encouraging words, they make me work so much harder
