Hey guys,
 
So inspried by some of the other DA WIPs (Spaced Hulk's Sword Bearers) that are on here as well as needing more of a push to get things painted I thought I'd do a WIP of my own. Posted it in the DA forum as I thought it would be appreciated more here. I will post my progress like everyone else but also keep the first thread updated also (for people that just wanna check out pictures).
 
A Bit About Me
 
My name is Carlos born in Peru but moved to Australia when I was 5. I am married and we plan on having some kidlets in the next couple of years. I work a 9 to 5 job for the Government which i love after working in retail for a long time. Besides 40k I like my PC gaming, movies, board games.
 
My History with the Hobby
 
Was introduced to 40k in 1998 by my friends in high school. Have always been a Dark Angels fan because, welll..... Terminators. The idea of an all Terminator army was just awesome epecially after playing the early Space Hulk PC game. I still own my Angels of Death codex and all the fluff has kept me well placed as a DA player. Favourite past time with the he hobby would have been having 40k weekends at one of my mates places every other weekend. Eight of us would bring everything we had and play on a ping pong table, beers in hand starting lunch time on Saturday and finishing the following afternoon.
 
Before I start I thought I'd post a pic of my paint station! I usually have Batreps going while I paint but more recently been listening to the Horus Heresy audiobooks.
 
Paint Station
 
So without further ado I present to you my collection!

Hey guys!

 

Completed five marines today!

 

They still need a coat of matt varnish and bases need flocking but left them with no flock simply because I don't know if I'm going to continue doing it the way I have in the past.

 

The Sergeants Bolter is magnetised :)

Just wanted to post some progress. It's been slow going with other things getting in the way of painting during the week.

 

I've been painting my second LRC and my Flamer Dread, both about 80% finished.

 

With my last league game on this Thursday and me wanting to field a Ravenwing army, I'm going to make sure I have all the bikes ready for paint/and or undercoated just so I don't have to play with bare models.

Hey guys,

 

Got a fair bit done since last update considering the busy week I've had. Definitely on target to get these done before next weeks tournament. The wife is working tonight so I'm aiming to get these Terminators finished.

They always look darker until I put the highlights on. I finished up everything last night including the bases. Just need a clear coat now and transfers on the Knight. I'll get some photos up when I get home.

Poor naked knight

"Fear the Dark Angels. They have not the zeal of Black Templars nor the savagery of Space Wolves but something more fearful. They do not give up-- no matter what. If you anger them, prepare to be hunted across the galaxy for they will never stop the chase. I have called for their aid. I will die knowing that you shall suffer a worse fate than I."

And here's my tournament Army for tomorrow!

 

DWIK (13)
 
DWIK (11)
 
DWIK (10)

 

And the fluff:

 

DWIK (7)
 

Deathwing Command Squad Ramon

 

Brother Ramon is the Standard Bearer for Belial's personal Command Squad. Ramon has served in the 1st Company for decades. His battle form, wisdom and knowledge had earned him the honoured position within the 1st Company. Ramon is the only member of the Deathwing that is entrusted to carry the Sacred Standards into battle.

 

Belial and Ramon share a tight bond and a lengthy history. Prior to his induction into the Inner Circle, Ramon had been the Standard Bearer for the 3rd Battle Comapny, fighting alongside Master Belial during the Ork Invasion of Piscina IV. It was Belial himself who recommended that Ramon was ready to be inducted into the Deathwing after his promotion to Grand Master of the 1st Company.

 
DWIK (6)

 

Deathwing Terminator Squad Arsenio

 

Sergeant Arsenio is a mountain of a man even for an Astartes. However his power and size is only second to his brilliant tactical mind. When inducted into the Deathwing it didn't take long for him to be singled out by the Inner Circle to lead a squad of Terminators. He humbly refused. Wanting to master all Deathwing Battle Tactics and Weapons before even thinking of being promoted.

 

Arsenio finally accepted the honour during the Pandorax Campaign where his predecessor was killed shortly after a teleport drop to the surface. It was Arsenio's leadership and tactical brilliance that resulted in freeing many of the hives on the planet from the Black Legion and Death Guard.

 

DWIK (8)
 

Deathwing Terminator Squad Isandro

 

Sergeant Isandro uphold's his duty to the Chapter like no other. Always steadfast in his battle craft, he prefers to lead from the front lines in the thick of the fighting. As a Sergeant in the 4th Company he lead his squad forward time and time again, never relenting or giving up ground. Even with this staunchness of character, Isandro has had the fewest Astartes losses out of any other officer in the Chapter.

 

Isandro was elevated to the Deathwing following the Second Battle of Rynn's World where Grand Master Sammael had personally brought his name forward to the Inner Circle after witnessing his reputation first hand.  

 
DWIK (9)

 

Deathwing Terminator Squad Ulises

 

Sergeant Ulises is famed for his bloodthirsty and aggressive nature, always preferring brute force over any other tactic. Even as an initiate this was evident and had fueled him through the ranks of the Dark Angels. It is even said his hunger for war rivals even that of their Blood Angel counterparts.

 

Upon his induction to the Deathwing and learning the Secret, his rage burned like never before. To know this sudden stain on the Chapter's honour was inconceivable. To this day, Sergeant Ulises is always at the forefront of any Chaos engagement and missions involving The Hunt.

 

DWIK (4)

 

Sir Clophas of House Terryn

 

Sir Clophas pilots the Dauntless Spear, Knight Errant. Clophas is a direct descendant of Sir Capulin of Tybalt's Triumvirate.

 

Not long after undergoing the Ritual of Becoming, Knight Apparent Clophas was dispatched to Cadia as part of a small detachment of House Terryn Knights sent to aid in the Cadian sector during the 13th Black Crusade.

 

The Terryn detachment being the closest to Cadia at the time arrived in the sector to receive orders to help in the defence Kasr Partox. With the larger mechanicum Titans crucial to the defence of the Fortress, the Terryn Knights were charged with leading a flanking attack on the enemy artillery. 

 

With the violent arrival of the Necronotyr, it wasn't long before the Terryn spearhead took a heavy toll and only the Knights remained. The Knights battled for Death and Glory but began to fall one by one. Clophas was saved when Grand Master Belial and squads of Deathwing Terminators from the Dark Angels Chapter teleported to his position in an attempt to hold back the Necron forces whilst Kasr Partox was evacuated.

 

Clophas later pledged a life debt to the Grand Master and always seeks missions where he would be taken to Dark Angels front lines in the hopes of upholding his honour. Clophas became a full-fledged Imperial Knight after the Battle of Kasr Partox.

The Knight looks fantastic, it has a really clean, crisp paint job. I really like the slightly subdued tone you've gone for with the colors.

 

I like the fluff for your army. I think I enjoy putting together and reaing back stories for my troops almost as much as painting them :P

The terminators aren't exactly bone white, but it's is a surprisingly nice tone you have that suits the Terminators and still carries a great DW feel. Cheers!

Yeah my Terminators have always been on the browner side. Decided to do it that way making them look slightly weathered without actually doing proper weathering. Also going a slightly darker tone better distinguishes my DW army from the two other local Dark Angels players at my local.

 

Thanks for all the positive comments guys. I'm taking my camera to the Tournament, wish me luck!.

So I've been a bit slack but have another deadline coming up so time to stop procrastinating and go to work. I have a 1500pt Tourney on 9th and 10th May and I've got a lot to do.

 

Here is my paint list!

 

1x Bike Librarian
1x Librarian
2x Missile Launcher Marine
4x Lascannon Marine
1x Flamer Marine
2x Sergeant (1 w/ Combi-Flamer)
1x Devastator Sergeant
16x Bolter Marine
2x Vindicator
1x Razorback
3x Drop Pod
1x Aegis + Quadgun
2x Land Speeder

 

I do have a head start. The bike Libby is about 50% done, 1x Drop Pod and Razorback just need touch ups and highlighting. Both Vindicators are about 50% done. I still have to build and magnetise one of the Land Speeders but everything else is already at least base coated/undercoated.

 

The Tourney is 5 games over 2 days using 5 of 6 of the Maelstrom Missions (yay!). No allies, Forgeworld or Superheavies allowed.

 

My full list is here if anyones interested. It's a dumbing down of a 2k list I made in the Army list section. Decided to stick to it after finding out the Tourney was Maelstrom. I believe its good overall list to take.

 

Spoiler

 

The plan is to build and magnetise the Land Speeder this week and Friday night I will undercoat and basecoat everything with the air brush. From there I will finish the drop pod and razorback then start on the infantry. I have 3 days off work making a long weekend the first week of May before the Tourney so should be able to get it done.

 

Pity it didn't line up better with ETL sad.png

 

I'll post some picks up soon!
