That Terminator Chaplain really is a great model, which gets better with a great paint job too. Nice and clean paintwork Eeps, good stuff!

Thank you both - If I ever get there, you can both have an indomitus commemoration model!



Zee Land Raider is done! Its done in the same way as the Deathwing general - Its kinda drybrushing, but all over rather than just the edges. I think it gives it a look more like bone dust than the solid creamy/white most people paint them.



All the options are done so I can switch out. HunterKiller is magnetized so it can sit on top as well





Big fan of the Forgeworld doors to make it distinctly Dark Angels-y





The post tracker tells me my Indomitus will be here tomorrow - I think I'll try and paint some of that up next, probably with some light conversions to add some DA specific bling to the models

Very cool land raider. I like the lenses on the Hurricane bolters.

The dustier bone does look really good. Much more realistic on the large flat panels I think.

Awesome tank. The icons are a great element. The grittier finish is working, too. Loving the texture.

Thank you all - Very kind!

I've got a wee bit done, but not loads. Have assembled all the Indomitus box at least! Here's some stuff what I have painted since last post -

Half the intercessors from DI box set:

@Zergsmasher - This will be squad Zabesael in your name, one of the angels of the seasons




Thunder Hammer Belial - This was earlier in the thread from before the hiatus, but he got beaten up on my US move so I remade him a bit differently -



and finally - As I didnt have enough members of the reclusiam to keep everyone in line, I did the Judiciar. Same as everyone else, I really didnt like the default head, so I swapped that out and also added some Sang Guard wings for a bit of extra Angel of Death vibes. Reckon it came out ok!




@Gwyn chan 'r Gwyll - This chap is called Ga’ga for you (hey its hard to find Angel names with Gs and apostrophes. Ga'ga is found in hechaloth lore and is a guardian angel of the seventh heavenly hall.

Im seriously short on painted troops I think, so Ill do the other 5 intercessors and then try and finish the Indomitus box!

Oh, that's rad. The wings look great, as does the head-swap.

I am honored!

That Land Raider turned out really nice! The FW doors really are cool; I wish I had some when I did my own Land Raider (which is still unfinished as far as painting goes). I'm liking what you're doing with all the characters and stuff too. Keep it up!

Wow, the wings on the Judiciar look amazing (as does the rest of the model)! Very fitting conversion.

Wings look good on the judiciar. I do feel a little bad for the guy that designed the mini, as almost no one I've seen wants to use him as is... Also, great work on the intercessors. Did you decide to go with red helms for the sergeants or is that a one off?

Nice job on the judiciar. He looks suitably intimidating, good choice of head too! I suspect he’ll get his standard head when I get around to him, my bits box isn’t very extensive! The wings were a great addition, and kudos for layering them inidividually and with more than one colour! That’s some patience!

ARE YOU SAYING THAT THE DARK ANGELS ARE NOT PASSIONATE ADHERENTS TO THE CODEX ASTARTES!!?!

In all honesty, I always like helmetless sergeants, so all of mine are bareheaded. I just fancied making the helmet stand out a bit, so decided to follow the Codex. I too feel bad for that guy - I have visions of the sculptor proudly showing their mum the model and she's there asking him why everyone's changing it...

Thank you sir! Here are your honour guard, squad Goneal (Gonael is one of many angel guards stationed at the gates of the North Wind.) I'm hoping your a Northener and this fits nice. If you are a softy southern type, my apologies



I know the open handed chap with the skull on his hat is supposed to be the sergeant technically, but one of the models had an accident with the snippers coming off the sprue so he got a new head (and as noted above, I prefer my sergeants manly and helmetless. Im sorry about your hairloss also.

Viterbi wrote:Wow, the wings on the Judiciar look amazing (as does the rest of the model)! Very fitting conversion.


Thank you! Say hello to Eradicator squad Vrihaspati (The angel Vrihaspati is the angelic guardian of hymns and prayers and appears in Vedic lore. Vrihaspati is described as an ‘instructor of Gods’ and was ‘first born in the highest Heaven of extreme light’.)



I hope you and your friends have an excellent time blowing up some tanks for me when we are allowed outside!

In other hobby news, I've purchased the ubiquitous Detolf! I've ordered some extra shelves that are on the way, and hopefully before the sun burns out I can fill this thing with minis!








Next off the block - As I realized above, the DW Champion & Apothecary can no longer have TH/SS, so I found the bits out of the DW box on ebay and kitbashed with the DV boxset to produce the below - I think they turned out pretty solid!





These guys are next up for a lick of paint and then I think I have to try and fill out my Ravenwing shelf some more - Im feeling brave enough to try their Apothecary again and then probably the other 5 BKs and then potentially some attack bikes and/or the Dark Shroud. So much to paint so little time!

Eradicators look very good. That display is a thing of beauty. Big fan of the new Terminators.

The eradicators turned out sweet. I like the sarge conversion on the DI intercessors as well. I really need to get cracking on my indomitus box.

Squad Goneal looks impressive, and will surely lead your Dark Angels to many a success! Oh, and yes, I am a Northerner, though years of living in the South have taken the edges off a little.

The Detolf looks fantastic with all the minis on it, good luck filling those shelves!

Gday - Long time between postings, but I've actually got a fair bit of stuff done.

The DV converted apoth/champion got some paint:



I bashed together another 2 TH/SS termis from DV to get my old command squad from 5th back up to a legal unit:



I did Lazarus and a Primaris LT to give the greenbois some help: Decided my LTs should get a bone helmet stripe (albeit they'll all be helmetless do be extra heroic)



I did the RW apoth for the 4th time. I still dont really like the white (I overbid the drybrushing and it really shows), but I honestly can't face stripping and painting this again.



aaaand finally - A 3 man squad of RW bikers with meltaguns.



The sarge has magnetized fist/sword/nothing options as well as a magnetized combi melta that I made from a bolter and inferno pistol. Reckon it came out OK:



I also amused myself by making a "gangsta" melta dude -



And I'm counting this one as progress too - I got some acrylic cut and some bits off etsy to make extra Detolf shelves. Spread stuff out a bit and added some Orks from my old collection to fill the cabinet out a bit.




With all of this, I'm past the 4,500 painted point milestone, but I still have a massive backlog + I'll undoubtedly be buying loads of the new stuff as well and making my problem worse...

I'm in the midst of painting some eliminators I found on ebay for a decent price. After that I think I'll probably aim to make some more RW - Probs a Talon Master and another 3 man squad at least and then I guess I'll have to get around to their Darkshroud. Either way, definitely something black.

It has been said that black is beautiful. Those bikers are proof. The green and bone fellows are pretty sweet, too. Congrats on the cabinet. A truly gratifying sight.

Your Detolf is filling up nicely! The Deathwing are probably my favourite in this latest bunch. I think it’s the blue lenses

Amazing update, so much great stuff, but Gangsta Melta is a favorite
And I got those add-on pieces for Detolf too, should be the same ones. Althought I only have some wooden shelves for now, need to update them to acrylic in the near future.
