Hello! Currently working on the start of my Heresy-era Dark Angels project, enjoying the break after a spell painting samurai miniatures!

Want to work on some background for the army, decide upon it's allegiances etc. To start with, here's my Consul, a Rhino and the lovely new Contemptor-Dreadnought.

That Contemptor really is a nice sculpt. The stains and chipping on the armour plates look good on all three models, I like how you've done the Rhino's headlights.

Thanks, mate, much appreciated! It’s why I enjoy painting black; I find I can go to town on the weathering side of things without it looking somewhat overdone (a thing I found difficult to balance when I did Death Guard years and years ago).

Extremely well done. You should be proud. 


Your opinion is important, and someone posting here probably does care what you think. You should go tell them. Remember that it really hurts to come up with an idea you care about and have no one else care. Go care about something and tell them what you think. Now. Think of what it would have meant to you when you were young.

Hey gang, back to it after a mini break (busy with work and other hobby stuff). Came back to some lovely new Dark Angels minis so clearly just had to treat myself! Appear to be going for a very Dreadnought heavy theme, 2 Contemptors and a Leviathan so far.

Quiet day at work today so these have been gloss varnished and are now ready for priming and a lick of paint! Hopefully the melta lance and Siege Drill should be here tomorrow hopefully.

It's a small detail but I really like the use of the Deathwatch cape (99% sure on that bit).

Those new models really are excellent, looking forward to seeing some paint on them.
