Dark Angels to see in the New Year


New Year brings fresh impetus to the painting that began just before Christmas. After a couple of Sundays the Dark Angels Veterans now have more paint on them.

This is heavy!
 I took lots of 'in progress' shots during the painting and decided to follow the paint scheme featured in the 'Paint Splatter' section of WD from January 2013. I found the method for painting the cloth left the miniatures looking quite dark so added some ushabti bone highlights


The highlighting with moot green really stands out against the dark tones of the green and adds a good contrast to the cloth

The whole veteran squad
The whole squad with their basing still drying, I thought that a lighter base would help to show off the darker colours in the squad. Pleasingly there were only two guys without helmets to test my skin painting skills. The squad is shoulder pad less as I wanted to add them at the end.

Squad in action with the helmet bearer!
Still lacking shoulder pads but hopefully I should complete them tomorrow! Oh and I forgot to mention I've added a new blog header!

Be back soon.
