My first army way back was blood Angel's, when they were in the angels of death codex. So dark angels had a lot of appeal. I also always loved the more knightly imagery of the dark Angel's.
After alot of searching and some good swaps I cobbled together enough bits to make a start.
I'll mostly be sticking to newer models, with some upcycled old bits to fill in RW and DW for now.
Keen to get a feel for the game I built 300pts and had a quick intro battle at GW. I'll paint up that list before building the rest of what I have.
That 300 is
I have bits for
5 bikes and attack bike
10 tactical marines
Later I'll be after some tips on list building.
For now I'd be keen on some tips regarding my green color, I'm trying to get a dark looking but classic look. My basing will be burnt forest with some spots of regrowth (mostly black and little pink and green spots).
It's hard to see but I'm experimenting with purple as the shade for green, its feeling a little salamanders though. Any advice is welcome.

Looks like a zenithal approach, as for the green brightness or shade, it is really up to your taste!
Whilst I prefer a really dark look that's just me, I think your minis look great!
If you do feel it's a little too bright or 'salamander' Nuln oil is your friend!

I'm trying to avoid blocky edge highlights but by spreading out the highlights I think it takes the contrast out. Power armour is really intimidating for me for some reason.
I'll finish a test model and see how its feeling as a whole. Before I make any big changes.

I had a quick try with bevulf's scratching technique and quickly realised I needed lot more practice. I'll likely go with fairly heavy soot weathering on boots nd backpacks.
Still trying to decide on if I, going to do red bolters or not.
C and c welcome

For now here is my only built HQ. I'm yet to name him.

Thanks bevulf, your style really impressed me, the thing I need practice with is placement of the weathering, it'll come as I crack on.
They look really great! As for scratches maybe try painting some small black dots and underline them with your highlight paint. I did that on my latest miniatures and i think they look better that way
Here are my cobbled together knights nearly ready for the undercoat to hide all my sins.

Looking good. Nice idea with the wings on the one. Basecoats hide lots, a saviour for me.
