alright boys what do you think?
getting down to the home stretch mhmm
I think great! Excellent choice to go green on the robes and very well executed. It is one of my favourite Primaris minis (although I always thought the Crozius could have been more elaborate) and its great to see it in DA colours! Well done!
OK everyone, we need to see some completions before the next Weekly Update - the BAs are keeping the pace and although they have smaller vows and exactly the same amount of participants, they lever up their resources much better than we do... And we're about to enter "procrastination month" so keeping the pace is very important!
The Inner Circle demands we make good on our solemn vows and this loyal son of the Lion shall not be found wanting!
I thus present to you, my brothers, this ancient and most venerable Land Raider Achilles! Resplendent in its Dark Angels Armorium paint scheme, it bears its many battle honors and battle scars* with equal pride.
With this model finished, I make good on my second vow for this year’s ETL.
For the Lion and the Emperor!
*Note to self: Stop being such a cowardly lion and do heavier weathering. Also, get a bigger light box and backdrop…
ok, this is FANTASTIC! The attention to detail, the markings, the chapter badges and that strange green... Top notch stuff. I'd not be to fussed with weathering - sometimes less is more. And we're DAs, we keep our equipment in pristine condition - otherwise all those termie armour would have rusted after all those millenia! But if you can pull off some (measured) battle damage, that'd be most welcome!
Any plans for a follow-up vow?
Yep, needs a bit of weathering.
Maybe a bit of really light Ironbreaker drybrushing for scratches and a really drybrush of a dust colour around the lower areas. ???
Sorry for shouting
Yeah, that'd be cool... Don't over do it though...
Hellblasters nearing completion. No advanced painting techniques I'm afraid - just simple base colours to make them ready for my tournament next weekend. Finishing touches to do early next week, then it's on to the Talonmaster and Sableclaw.
Very well made, crisp and clean - i really like your style man - really do! Keep it up, the Unforgiven need those points badly!
So Brothers, my second vow is incoming.
I Isual rise to the challenge of E TENEBRAE LUX on the side of the Dark Angels once again and vow to complete a chaplaint, a master in catapfractii armor, a tactical squad, 3 company veterans, a unit of Deathwing Knights and a venerable Dreadnought of total value 805 Points on or before August 1st, 2018. Success will bring me eternal glory and failure will doom me to wear the Badge of the Oathbreaker until the year-end!
I think I got the point thing right this time.
Some thoughts about the Units:
I was absolutly amazed as i found out, my leftover Veterans can build a legit unit now (the apothecary and the Banner bearer are already painted).
The master will propably be played as a count as Belial as I don't like his original model that much. But as they are just 1 point apart why bother with count as shenanigans.
Last thougt: Im running out of stuff to paint.
Any advices what I realy shouldn't miss out in my army? A talon master is already on its way to me and he will be, together with Azrael, in my 3rd vow.
Starting Pictures will be provided soon.
That's the way to play it! Vow again at higher points and plan your third vow too! Re-vowing rate will be key in this ETL! *don't forget to add the "before" pics when you get them*
+++Another great Vow Brother, the Lion rests knowing we toil on his behalf.+++
My tuppence for the last few days, new gat:
A bit rushed, might go and tidy a couple of bits up later.
Rushed? Sometimes i really need to check the dictionary to make sure I understand English properly... This quality is anything BUT rushed in my eyes... Stobz, you are a credit to the Rock! Keep walking brother!
UPDATED TO THIS POINT!
