Hi there B&C! This is my first thread on this forum after lurking for quite awhile(and my first post! What an overachiever I am )
I decided to start this thread for a couple of reasons. First(Hah!), I wanted to get a kick in the pants to paint more (I'm the kinda guy who can't let something remain undone when I've started it, but it takes a lot of willpower to start...). Secondly, I'd love to bounce ideas and advice off of you lovely folks and folkettes (Love you guys, nicest 40k forum by far). Thirdly, There just ain't many Dark Angels members in this here subforum(shout out to Depthcharge12 among the others) and I hope to get more Primus Legio activity around here(And if elected...)
Before the nice pictures, a little about me (Spoiler; It sadly doesn't involve long walks on the beach)
I recently returned from a years-long hiatus from the hobby(left just as the first Forgeworld Heresy stuff was showing up) and, having been a long-time fan of the horus heresy setting(Yesterday marked the twentieth time I've reread Savage Weapons), I resolved to start a (pre-)heresy army of my longtime sweethearts, the Dark Angels!
I got myself a Betrayal at Calth set, went to the forgeworld website, and started my journey; both to bankruptcy and to starting the army.
Anywho, onto the pretty(hopefully) pictures.
First up to bat is the test model for my paint scheme; Consul-Chaplain Morr.
and seen here, taking aim with his trusty plasma pistol (that's what I call irony)
But that's not all folks! I have a double feature for you today.
Presenting Elder Gardain, an esteemed dreadnought veteran of Terra,
A close up of his Melta weapon
and finally a rear shot
I hope you enjoyed (and there's more where that came from, I say!). I heartily look forward to your guys' critiques and/or advice.
And, as the pig said: that's all folks! hope you enjoyed, I'm working hard to try to get a follow-up with some other duders painted by tomorrow.
