A CHALLENGE LAYS ISSUED!

fm7lYfol.png

The Dark Angel's known only as Shadow Guard and Darkn3ssF4lls walk out of a dark room deep inside the flying fortress only known as The Rock. Their heads held low after their deep conversations within held only moments before. "Brother, we need a Champion to lead these oaths to victory!" Darkn3ssF4lls said shifting his gaze to stare ahead down the long corridor. Dimly lit with candles he could see the glories of the past artistically crafted into the corridors. "Only the finest warriors will be chosen to lead the new squads, let us begin the preparations" replied Shadow Guard.

To coincide with the Covenant of Caliban (1 July - 30 Sep) and because of the launch of 8th edition, I would like to challenge us all to make some great conversions of our new sworn brothers, the Primaris Marines.

I ask myself what it means to be one of the Dark Angels. To protect mankind, purge the alien, cleanse the unclean?

Question about the armament - are swords the only acceptable weapons, or would a Halberd of Caliban be acceptable solution, too?

Sorry I was counting that under the two handed variety, this is perfectly acceptable Chmur.

This is my first time ever using greenstuff... i learned alot quickly, like how it manipulates, and how its not as easy as it looks on youtube. when i started to really figure it out, and how to use my tools, it had begun to harden. i think some parts look ok, and some not so much. Nevertheless im proud of my first one. Also, let the glue fully cure before attempting to greenstuff. i had an issue with my pistol arm wanting to come off.

Green stuff tips:

1. mix in a bowl of warm water to slow drying
2. keep your tools and the surface you are working wet to prevent sticking
