*Skorp bows solemnly*

 

With past battles ringing in his ears, his tattered robes hide the fire burning within. He will never give up, one day they will all be painted...

Hi. I'm Skorp. I started my warhammer and table top journey a couple years ago. Now that ETL VI is upon us and it will be my first ETL, I've decided to stop putting off making a painting and army progress blog. Depicted below is my Greenwing thus far, begun with the purpose of making a battle company for 7th edition. Being new to the hobby I somehow always find myself painting infantry. With the dark vengeance tactical squads being cheap on ebay, I figured it was a good way to learn to paint and get practice doing so. I've continued down the path I started, finding it difficult to abandon the marines of my beginnings. While I have a healthy stash of deathwing and ravenwing, and their time will come, I want to get the troops out of the way so I can establish a solid base on which to add models to.

As I've accumulated a lot of models over the past 2 years and I don't have as much time as I once did to pursue hobbies, I've been aiming for painting basecoats and shading followed by nicely basing my models. Some of my older models I didn't base as I hadn't figured out my plans for it yet and I need to go back and base those. Would love to hear your C&C as someone with miles to go and much to learn.

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

Working on my smash master and need help making a couple decisions.

Should I keep the head or chop it off in favor of a ravenwing champion style helm?

Square storm shield or knight style storm shield?

Can you lop it off carefully to test both?
