Hi everyone,

Im making this blog to keep me motivated on my Dark Angel Project. To kick start this thread I have got 2 tactical squads that i got off Ebay for a grand total of $3.25 AUD!! I also just got some Veterans, you should be seeing some of those.







Some feedback and followers would be nice!!

Ok so after about an hour of painting (excluding drying time) I came up with this....


And I also finished work on the veterans.

2 tactical squads $3.25, I'm going to Ebay right now! LOL.
As I have found simple green at bunnings I will be more inclined to buy Ebay stuff now because I know I can strip them. YAY!
Seeing your test mini it looks very nice. That green looks great. What are you planning on doing with the base?

Yea it was a really good deal. Although the guy I got it from wasnt too happy at getting $3.25 and after it all his prices went up to a $25 Buy it now strting price. Its also going to allow me to buy some other stuff cos I spend the $120 GW wants.

I was going to use this for the bases

Simple green at Bunnings!! Hmm better check this out. I was lucky with the Ebay models I got because they only had a thin coat of primer on them from one direction.

They look great.

But (to me, anyway) the green is too light to be a dark angel

Thanks for the comments, I was thinking maybe making them a homebrew successor like 'Resolute Angels'.

Those tactical marines look great.

Let me clarify that Simple Green Can only be found at some Bunnings stores. Usually the major ones. I went to eight different Bunnings and only found two that stocked the all purpose cleaner that you need, but I bet you can request the staff to stock some. Also it is found in the cleaning products isle.

Thanks for the advice. I have 4 major bunnings around where I live (dont ask me why theres so many, probably because they dont want Mitre10 to take the spots).

Finland... the country next to Sweden? No! That's Norway! Finland is to the east! No! That's Russia!

Just put your Ravenwing on hoverboarda and call your chapter "the green goblins"

But seriously though, I kinda like the fact that they aren't too dark, so are easier to spot on a battlefield. Of course the base plays a big part in that.
I noticed that the models some how look like they are still WIP, because the skulls and aquilas on the weapons haven't been painted. Also if you can, you should add the DA symbol on the shoulderpads.

Sweet Jesus, Nurgle and Slaanesh in the same box!?
No, just Nurgle and Slaanesh, Jesus will be sold seperately in a blister.

Flying Pooo is right, drill up your gun barrels, or if you don't want to risk it atleast paint them black.
Awesome work btw..

Or you could paprika them or Oregano them too but if FP wants you to Dill them then do it!

sorry, but yes, listen to the man, he's got some great models himself and it'd be a shame for yours to be painted so well and not have the barrels drilled out, I like the colour you used and when you do the chapter symbols they'll be a really nice subtle DA army, I can't wait to see how it looks with the robes painted in your style, it will be great i'm sure! in fact, i'm so sure of it, I've just subbed the thread so i don't miss anything!

Thanks GreyDeathOne, I may be asking questions when I paint the Deathwing

Anyway, I went down to the Hobby shop... And picked up a pin drill. Thinking my dad would have a small enough peice, I didnt get any drill bits. Mistake. He didnt!

The shop also had 50% OFF EVERYTHING!!!! But Sadly My Mother Did Not Allow Me To Buy ANYTHING!!!!

I could have had the whole army bought!!!

*Calm Down* *Relax* *There will be another sale soon*

AND.... I finished another marine

Barrel looks horrible

7 down too many to go

brilliant work dude! they look fantastic together! I can't believe the pin vice didn't come with any bits? that's a bit crap eh! :-) if i have a spare one before you get one then let me know and i'll send it to you? anything to keep a fellow hobbyist keen, inspired and working hard on a great looking force!

Those look great! Don't worry about the barrels they will get drilled when they get drilled, it's not too much of a fuss.
