I'm just getting into the hobby. I have been lurking on the site for a while. For my first army, I decided to go with the Dark Angels. I am fan of their fluff and the Deathwing. I have decided to go with Gaurdians of the Covenant because of the robes and their colors. Metal power armour and red robes? You can't go wrong with that. I managed to hit pay dirt at Christmas and scored a Dark Vengeance set. I have also managed to procure more DA armies from DV.
I have started painting now have a good start on a few tactical squads. Here's what my first units look like. I have yet to highlight and I am missing some details but I would appreciate all your comments, querries, critisism and complaints (Did I miss any?).
There are two tactical squads each with 1 veteran sargeant, 5 tac marines and 1 plasma cannon. In the foreground are the company master and librarian. All the models are un-modified. I am using the DA emblem on the pauldrons. I know it's not propper for the sub-chapter but I will save the crossed swords for the elites.
Here is one of the veteran sargeants. He has been slightly modified, as in his head is turned a little. You can have a better view of the marines.
