Im changing direction of my dark angels, solely by the fact that I don’t like the green color of the dark angels and the fact that consecrators is a damn cool chapter!

Some marines, a talonwing knight and my soon to be Nakir, chapter master.

Love it!  The perenial question: how do you achieve that black look? (ie, how do you paint your black armor?)

Thanks man! It’s quite simple really! Black undercoat -> hvy drybrush of leadbelcher -> light drybrush of runefang steel -> 2 hvy nuln oil coat -> gentle sponging w leadbelcher-.

It’s hard to fail, or rather the more irregular and less neat the better 😀

Agree, your first squad looks amazing. I would offer that the power coils on the plasma guns could use just a light drybrush  with white to help them pop, but that's just me. They really look good and the Mk. III armor really shows your black technique very well.

Thanks a lot! You are 100% right there need to be a light final highlight on the plasma! That will be taken care of! I really like the mk III armour, it really look gritty without much work.

Those Consecrators are looking good, almost like the legion colours. The glow in the plasma is nice and subtle too.

Thanks a lot brother! Yes I like the black original legion colors much more.

A few days progress; some marines, a hellblaster, a talonwing Knight, a breacher (veteran w storm shield) and chapter master Nakir is either ready or almost ready.

Really nice work! I've had a soft spot for The Consecrators since the 2nd Edition Codex Angels of Death. Especially at that time you only had a small number if older armor marks, and all in metal.

Thanks man! He is about to be joined by 4 more guys. I’m thinking about adding basic individual heraldry on each boarding-shield, will see how that turns out.

I'm a sucker for checks, so that new breacher's shield pattern ticks the bill here. Different heraldry/patterns suits the knightly forces of Caliban too.

Well done.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

They look great! I’m totally trying this technique for my Black Legion (and Fallen)... hope you’ll forgive the Heresy! Of course forgiveness and Dark Angles don’t really mix haha

@Bjorn Firewalker @Brother Lunkhead Thanks alot guys! Appreciate it!

@El_Dicko Try it! I command you to 😊 I think its a good looking result with a fast process to get there. I think it would look great with black legion and, ofc, fallen. Even tho its heresy 😀

Reply later if you start a thread with your BL and fallen 👍🏻

The plasma glow on the bikers is top notch and the mixed breacher heraldry gives each one interest, but still lets the unit work well as a group. What are you thinking for the sergeant's crest? I feel that either white, or red and white would match the shields well.

 

I must say, I'm not a fan of the orange tactical designation on the Hellblaster, it clashes a lot with the darker tones of the force.

Thanks alot! Im thinking white crest, on one of the Tactical sgt i did the crest white and black and it looked ok, but i think i will try all white now.

I Appreciate your thoughts on the markings! Tbh im not sure what colour the consecrators use for their markings. Ive seen both white and red, but i went with the Dark Angels-markings. But i think Youre right. What you think about if i try to darken it abit?

I think the same dark red that you've used on the Breacher shields would work well for the markings, though I know little about them, I always thought the Consecrators used red for markings.
