Dark Angels Imperial Marine

Even though the First Legion and greatest Space Marine Chapter Of All Time can’t technically field this chap, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have one.

I loved painting this model, I wish that more were made in this range but I guess we’ll have to wait for the 40th anniversary 😉

As you can see from the last photo, I decided to paint the 5th Company’s mark in the circle sculpted onto the right pauldron, unfortunately my freehand painting skills aren’t good enough yet to paint on the Chapter icon so I had to use a transfer.  As I seldom use them, I had forgotten how big they were, I didn’t think it would have obscured the company mark so thoroughly!  Oh well, live and learn.

The first finished model of 2016!  This will ferry my Company Master and Command Squad into battle (once I finish painting the Command Squad, that is).

I used the Forge World Dark Angel Doors and Front Plate and would thoroughly recommend them, to all First Legion commanders.  My only issue was that the doors required a lot of careful filling before they would fit.  The end result was entirely worth it, I’m really pleased with this model.

As you can see, I even painted the interior.  I have always shied away from painting the insides of Rhinos and their cousins but I after painting the interior of my Chaos Land Raider I discovered it wasn’t that difficult and doesn’t really take that long.

Now, on to the Command Squad…

This is the first loyalist termie I’ve painted in close to 20 years. 

  
As you can see, the model’s from the Dark Vengeance set. Before starting on this squad I’d heard horror stories about painting them but once I’d got started the whole process took maybe three hours. 

Now that the first one’s done I’m going to production line the rest.

The best huntsmen in the galaxy (yes, including the White Scars) are now ready for battle.

I loved painting these miniatures.  Initially I was somewhat put off since it was impossible to paint the riders separately as these Dark Vengeance models incorporate parts of them into the bikes however once I got started things managed to fall nicely into place.

The Ravenwing is my favourite Dark Angels company, eventually I would like to have enough to field nothing but them in battle.

No Fallen will escape, this we swear.

Managed to get something done for #MinatureMonday for the first time in what seems like ages 🙂

Ideally I’d like to be further along with his two squad mates, but at least this chap’s ready for action.

Managed to get this finished today. 

  
  
  
  
 Before I lose momentum I’m going to try to get the three bikes that came with the Dark Vengeance set finished. After that, I’ll almost have a functional Dark Angels army 🙂

We got back last week from a freaking fantastic time in the US visiting my wife’s family and now that the jetlag’s cleared (I swear it didn’t use to affect me so in my twenties) I’ve got in an hour or so of painting this evening. 

  
Ok, it’s not much, but at least this small part of my Ravenwing force is done 🙂
*Well, Scotland.
