Let me start this topic with a precursor - I'm new to this hobby and the painting nuances. After much experimentation, I found the right balance to watering paints, spraying miniatures lightly as well as gaining a rudimentary understanding on layering paints. Here are the results (Camera is a bit off):

Here is the story of my painting experiences (read at your own risk, this might be a bit too much for some)..

Enjoy your learning, painting is a load of fun mastering techniques and trying new recipes.

Nice progress, Skywrath. With the thickly painted models, you can always come back to them later by stripping the paint off and repainting them. I’ve never done it before so I’m not familiar with the process, but there’s plenty of online guides out there

Azrael, Kaldor and the watcher done!

Questions: Why Kaldor?

Because he's cool and he managed to one shot the Lord of Contagion when me and my friend played against him. Plus I'm building a GK army, so he would make a good place to start.

 

Why is Azrael on the banner painted red?

In hindsight, this was an undersight on my end, the banner was painted green, so I had to use another paint to provide contrast. Seeing how my other options were either red or brown, I figured red would make the most striking alternative.

 

Why do the paints look so grainy?

At the time of this picture, I recently nuln oiled the pair, with time I expect it to dissapear, with the exception of the lion's helm's wings. The watcher is actually lighter than the picture entails. 

 

Kaldor remains my best painted model - so much detail on him. Next up it will be the terminator librarian.

Love the shirt! The mini too! He looks imposing, and I love the color on the shoulderpads (i'm a sucker for non-cannon color schemes)

The shoulders were to denote he was a part of the deathwing, but cheers!

Looks great mate. Very noticeable improvement in your skills compared to that first terminator - thin coats is really working for you. That shirt is epic, too

Not a Dark Angel, however I plan to have 2 of these in my army as an auxillary detachment. Still working on the base, but what a beautiful model! Planning to make the red accents in the next model (coming in the mail), green, in honor of the Dark Angels.

Final product! (All 3 Aggressors completed). Justifiably proud of them, best work yet, I would think. Next up will be more Deathwing Knights.

Repulsor Executioner complete! Paint is thick in some places, but still passable handiwork.

 

Spoiler

 

Next up it will be another squad of DWK, Black Knights, Ravenwing Bikers (squad of 5) and a trio of Eliminators.

Fine work on the Repulsor Executioner.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' 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.

Deathwing Knights/Sammael done! Next up it will be a squad of inceptors/Black Knights.

 

I wouldn't call the DWK my finest work ever, but I think they are acceptable.

Sammael was not not painted by me, but he had a lot of patch-up jobs that had to be done (broken pieces, splurges of paint, etc).
