Hello! How are you all doing? I just thought that I shouldn't ignore the Age of Darkness forums with my Dark Angels project.

 

Essentially, I'm in the process of rebooting my Dark Angels to be a 30k/40k Crossover force. Mostly this means discussing with the owner of my FLGS today if he can Ebay list some of the [FAR TOO MANY] Dark Vengeance marines, as well as a bunch of generic Terminators I have so I can get money to get more proper kits.

 

And here's the first of my First. I suppose he'll be a Sergeant for a Legion Support Squad with plasma guns?

I currently have, for 30k models:

- All of Betrayal at Calth, sans the Contemptor (the Cataphractii have been made with dual Lightning Claws)
- A squad of Burning of Prospero Tartaros Terminators

- 10 Mark III marines

 

I'll be working on those guys next. The above model was one of the ones I got in a "surprise!" model drop from a friend (long story that :lol:)

And this is where I start, some Mark III armoured Marines (assortment of a Tactical Squad, Veteran Sergeant and a Special/Heavy weapon trooper).

These were a recovery operation from a friend of mine. As he originally made them Heresy-Era Death Guard (hence the battle-damage), which he planned to use as Plague Marines in 40k. The Sergeant was the one that required the most work, as somehow the neck was completely filled in, so I used a spare of the Betrayal at Calth Cataphractii Praetor's head on him laugh.png Also added one of the Ravenwing pistols, because I thought it looked good.

 

Now, I need to wait for the Forge World Mark III Dark Angels pads to come back in stock to fully finish these guys. But, I'll be able to finish the rest of them without the shoulders at least.

Not exactly DARK Angels, but it's an Angel and 30k related. Plus, I think Dark Angels and Blood Angels are still able to be bros in 30k, right?


 

I started painting Sanguinius. I've finished his face and wings, and got his body base coated, shaded and first highlight done.

 

Face:

Wings:

And this is what his body looked like before I shaded. Good lord that's shiny

And here's where I finished at today, and you can see the finished-ish base, as I'm going for a dark, daemonic-looking base to contrast with Sanguinius' model.

Very cool! Don't think there is anything like enough DA presence in pre-heresy. Which is a surprise, as they're an evocative legion, and the different colour scheme means you can differentiate from 40k easily.

Sanguinius looking good too - it's a beautiful sculpt!

Thanks! And I get the feeling you don't see much anymore is because Mark II, which was the Dark Angels armour (along with White Scars), was discontinued by Forge World. Though, the differentiation isn't too big for me, since I'm painting all my Dark Angels in that colour scheme because I like it a lot more than the dark green.

 

Those new Praetors and the Dreadnoughts, I'm totally getting all of. At least one, probably more :lol:

 

And I agree, Sanguinius is indeed such an amazing sculpt, I'm excited to finish it.

Nice to see some Dark Angels being worked on, one of the lesser seen Legions I think sometimes do kudos!

Thanks! I've got three more models showing up this week (Deredeo with Plasma & Missiles, the Apothecary set), so those will be being vowed for ETL, not for Age of Darkness though. I've got far too much Primaris to just sit around and not paint them :lol:

 

So I'll have.... 4 Units that will be showcased here once finished.

Friend of mine did an order with Spellcrow at the beginning of the month, and asked if I wanted to order some of the Dark Angels stuff.

 

 

So now I have a 10-man squad of Veterans, all in robes:

Unsure of what loadout for these guys though. I'm thinking Combi-Plasma?

Those robed veterans look spot on, I think plasma would be most appropiate for the first.

Hey look, 10 Mark III marines with heavy combat damage (the damage isn't from me, my friend originally painted these guys up as Death Guard):

Nice work! Maybe add a small edge highlight on the battle damage just to make it pop too?

Best part is I did :lol: But, I guess my normal Dark Reaper highlight is too subtle on the battle damage to make it obvious. Maybe the Fenrisian Grey highlight....
