@ Kriegsmacht: Fantastic to have you on board brother! Indeed all plasma weapons come at the same price for DAs - go First! :D However I think you have not priced in the melta bombs in your 10-strong squad - that will bring the value up, to 200pts. I've made the change in the first page and feel free to edit your post accordingly. Unless I'm missing something... :unsure:

 

@ Elmo: Indeed! And great quality too! But when the First starts to roll, nothing will stand in its wake! ph34r.png

NONE WILL STAND IN OUR WAY!!!

 

@ kobrakei: Welcome brother! Look forward for those much needed reinforcements to take their positions in the front line! :D

 

@ Dark_Master: Was wondering when the Consecrators will appear! Or will it be a different Chapter? Be that as it may, welcome to the Strategium - and may the Lion watch over you!

 

@ GreyRavenC: THE FIRST COMPLETION OF THE DAs!!! Congratulations sir and doubly so looking at the quality of your work! :tu: I'm really proud to be a Son of the Lion today! Will you consider a follow up? You have ample time to take another shot!

 

Keep them coming guys, and to those undecided: come and join the effort! :)

Wow Liberame. Never disappointed when you enter the fray!

Dark Angel player for just over a year (this time - played in 2nd Ed too!)

Developing, mixed 4000 or so points, still nothing that I call "a finished Army" yet.

Always looking for a game in my local area - let me know if you are near Andover, Hants, UK and fancy playing someone easy to beat!

Since I didn't get any reply in my thread and it's actually ETL models I need advice on, I will try it here as well:

 

So, little bit of ETL progress done, need some help going onwards, guys. This is WIP shot of my Consecrator RW Knights. While it's not apparent, the etchings under scrolls on the front wheels are dark green, same as plasma talon bodies. The scrolls, wings etc will be bone colour. There will be red stripe on top of the bike - ie front wheel cowling, top of the seat, back cowling, however I am at complete loss as to what to do with the ornaments on the fuel tanks and the little skill on the winged banner. Currently looking at 3 options:

 

A - chainmail into black wash into silver highlight

B - silver into red wash into silver highlight (would work best on the huntmaster bike)

C - red

D - bone

 

Still got a lot of work on the plasma coils, general cleanup of the whites etc so I don't need the asnwer right away, but any opinions and advices are welcome, as well as any pointers and C&C towards the already completed work on them. Thanks

OK, took the liberty to increase the size of the pic - to be easier to discuss...

 

What I'd do would be to go metallic on the tanks detail. Way easier to work over black and stands out perfectly well. I'd tone down the green - not a colour necessarily identified with Consecrators and while red is, I think it's one the "less is more" moments. So red for the stripe makes it stand out but if you put more red points it may distract... Bone I wouldn't use at all - personal preference here - because it has very little to do with Consecrators!

 

Of course everything boils down to execution - you may achieve spectacular results doing completely the opposite of my suggestions! So go with your heart - if you feel differently by all means go for it! :)

It was a clicky pic :) But sure, way better now.

 

The more I was thinking about it, the more the metallic finish seems better to me as well, just want to avoid having explaining to everyone that "no, these aren't IH counts as DA models"

 

Green so far will be only plasma talon bodies and inside the scrolls - tha ravenwing claw, grim reaper etc. I don't really plan on using much green overall. Standard guns will be metallic, was just affraid it would be bit too much metal with the bikes etc, and I like the Black metal metallic colour far too much to do bland black bikes with black riders... And even then I plan to use very dark green, on matt black primer the finish is really more like black with slight green tint.

 

The stripe will be red, without a doubt. The bone colour, I am on the verge. Deathwing will have the canon bone helmets, so there will be bone in the army, as and it will be generally used as denotion of Inner Circle incursion (the stripe on the left shoulderpads for the RW knights). Still pondering whether I want to make all the feathery details on the whole army in bone colour, or go with clean white.
