Deathwing Terminator

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. 

Dark Angels Tactical Squad

As per usual, this took me far too long to complete but here’s my full Tactical Squad from the Dark Vengeance box.


I really enjoyed painting these and the temptation to paint the other tac squad I have is great. However, I’d like to clear a few more half-finished projects before I go back to The Unforgiven.

Dark Angels Tactical Squad – WIP

Following on from my experiment to see if I could paint a single Dark Angel in an hour or so (clicky), I’ve decided to see if I can finish off his squad mates.

Here’s how far I’ve got.


With the exception of the sergeant, I’ve been doing this by assembly line. All that’s really left is for the weapons, company markings and individual detail to finish. Hopefully I’ll get at least the bolter marines done tomorrow.

Dark Angel Tactical Marine

This evening I decided to see if I could finish off a single miniature in under an hour. As I’m currently in the middle (well, closer to the start than the middle) of painting my Hellbrute, I thought I’d revisit my other main project, the Chaos Space Marine Chosen and Dark Angels Tactical Squad from the Dark Vengeance box.

I’m fairly happy with this. The picture isn’t great as the lighting doesn’t really show off the armour highlights too well. But for a basic trooper I think it’s passable. This is also the first time in many years that I’ve (mostly) stuck to the colours that the ‘Eavy Metal team used although I’ve greatly simplified it as I’m a mere mortal. >

Big Damn Heroes

Well, that’s all of my Dark Angels built and along with the stuff from my limited edition Dark Vengeance box I think I’ve got quite a decent little force.

As some of you may know, my Far Better Half and I are in the process of buying a house so I think that these chaps will be the first new project I paint once we move in.

The Heralds

For this week’s Miniature Monday I’d like to share my first attempt at the colour scheme for my Chaos Space Marine army that’s provisionally called The Heralds of Woe. You can more information on their (still very draft) background in my first ever post.

I have a couple of half built squads, a Terminator Lord and a Dreadnought and Predator that are halfway through conversions. All unfortunately unpainted but the pending release of Dark Vengeance has prompted me to pull my finger out and get something ready for my inevitable purchase(s).



I’m more or less happy with it but I think I overdid the black ink glaze, so I think I’ll knock up a couple more trial models before I start on the good stuff.
