This is just fantastic! Well done Brother Captain Lucian!

 

The painting quality is just top notch - you have captured perfectly the grim determination of the 1st Legion... and those bases? Wow just wow!

 

MOOOOOOOOOOOORE!!!! biggrin.png

*Happy dance*

 

Thank you! Im very proud of them, and i did learn a few things for the next 10. Like pinning... is a lifesaver.

 

I think ill get a Rapier done next tho, the model is gorgeous.

They do look great, Brother Captain Lucian! Don't feel too bad about the lack of comments, that happens a lot, more so it seems when they are quality and people have a hard time picking something out (I know I don't like to just say "good show" over and over again), at least that's what I tell myself :D.

It's a very nice display of minis, they look very cool decked out in the Legion's colors. The bases are very nicely done, some sort of resin made? I notice that they don't have any Legion icons though, what gives? The gold (and I think it is really hard to photograph metallics) doesn't appear to have a lot of depth to it. Is it a single color or single color + wash? Perhaps an edge highlight of gold + bright silver mixed could bring out the edge a bit more. The red bolter casings look very nice and draw the eye against the mostly black background of the armor, and you've done a good job giving them nice color depth. Very cool pack topper and I like the little wings attached to the Mk3 helmet.

Very nice, looking forward to the next pinned ten man squad!

Thank you!

 

You might be right on the comment part.. atleast i know i do that myself :P

 

The bases are indeed resin, templar ruins from scibor. Really good stuff, when you just cant make bases yourself..

As for the missing icons, i cant freehand very well - and as such im stuck with using decals. Now the GW decals, arent really that impressive. So im going to use the FW decal sheet.. and i wont be ordering from FW till im done with the stuff i already have :)

 

You are right tho about the gold. It is a single colour (Vallejo Liquid old gold), but ill give them a sepia wash and a sharp highlight.

 

It was hard to make them scream "Dark Angels", as most of the bits i have lying around dosen't fit Mkii very well. I expect that will change once i get some decals.

So fun update, my praetor on jetbike (with a not so legal plasma cannon sadly), Iron Halo, Paragon Blade and Artificer Armour is done.

 

The base is largely still VIP.

 

 



 

 

C&C? :)

Looking very nice, BC Lucian! I like the purple under/inner robe color on the "praetor" (is that a HH thing?) and it looks like your white has come out very nicely. It is a little difficult to give you much more because the images are from farther away than to show close-up detail, however, from a table top distance they give a very good view and the impression I have is that it is very nicely done and a good center piece to blow your opponent up with. :D

Thats the problem with only having a tablet camera .. and no photobooth.

 

Anyway Thanks!

 

Yes the Praetor is from the HH book, hes sort of the equivilant of a chapter master in 40k terms.

And even with my terribad camera skills, i can see that i need to find a purple wash, as his inner robes.. could use it^^

I know that feeling teehee.gif Couldn't affort this if i hadn't gotten a job back in september. But i really think that jumping into 30k was the best decision iv made in my warhammer career :P

Soo its been a while! :)

 

I decided last night that i would make an additional vow for the PTR. A Rapier.

 

Here is the result - sadly the bus was late, and as such i missed my train... yada yada, and now the lighting is terrible :S

 

Also, iv experimented with a glow from the lenses, comments?

Whoops, I don't know how I missed the last few updates! I think the glowing lenses look very cool. It's easy to over-do something like that but limiting it to the edge below the eyes is very effective. I'm impressed that you've picked out all the rivets on the arrmour too! Little details like that bring out the shape of the model which is easily lost when they're all-black. :tu:

 

A purple wash would help the praetor's robe. At the moment I think it's too bright in comparison with the rest of the colours you've used.

Thank you! And following your notification on the robe, i have made a wash and is watching it dry now... that sounded way more boring than it is teehee.gif

oh dang O-O these are beautiful! 

Thank you!

 

A few people have mentioned that i should add more DA symbols on the Rapier.. so that will be done on the next one whistlingW.gif

That would be my horrible photographic skills, it dosen't look nearly as washed in real life.

 

Anyway update time! smile.png

 

And With that my first Feb. PTR vow is done :).... well not counting the bases.image-B02A_5134CD21.jpgimage-5C12_5134CD21.jpgimage-D1FB_5134CD21.jpg
