I will admit this already my dark angels are not as lavish or well painted as other peoples (Sknight's especially) but i beleive their worthy to show off. These are all the DA i have finished thus far! Be warned there are many picture (30 or so) ! They are in order from most recent to least recent.
Alright that is it i know that was alot of pictures, but i hadnt really thought about this WIP thing till now. There are many more to come!
I plan to add a land raider, terminators, Azrel, and Ezkeil, and after that after probaly a year a beutiful Warhound Titan!!!!
All i ask you to do since youve been in this topic is reply! I do need tips and suggestions from more experinced painters to get from average to a little better.
Thanks again for taking a look. And Hail The Emperor, and the great Primarch Lion El' Jonoson!!!
Like your other WIP thread, not too shabby. I do think you should drill out the barrels of the multi-melta, however. First, use a pin (the kind that hold button-up shirts together in those nice, neat packages will suffice) to mark the center as deeply as possible. The tip of your hobby knife might help here, too, but use a pin first. Then, use a pin vise (those teeny hand drills) to widen it. A small guide hole or depression will help prevent the pin vise from skipping around and putting the hole in off-center.
Also, it's hard to see the photos. To fix this, try two things:
1) It's good that you're not using flash, but your light sources should come from multiple directions. If at all possible, get three lights, one from above, and one from either side.
2) Don't use ordinary light bulbs! That's where that yellowish look is coming from. Instead, take it outside to shoot, or use "daylight" light bulbs, which you can get in any hardware store for pretty cheap.
That, and some small photo-editing tricks will help. PM me for more details.
Otherwise, pretty good job. Again, don't forget washes and light highlighting, and you're golden!
Im sick today so ill work on my photographs. Also thanks for describing the techniqe for drilling the holes because that will help me alot! Also where can i buy a pin vise? Do you think home depot will have one? And blackhard, thank you for subscribing! Im not sure what T-erminator is but thanks!
I had to get mine from a hobby store. I think I bought the GW one. I tried multiple hardware stores, including Home Depot, but they looked at me like I had three heads. Nobody had any clue what I was talking about.
not too shabby! i especially like the chaplain's skull. nice shading. i have 1 suggestion though - basing the whole army with a common theme is a really easy way to make the whole thing look 10 times better. all you need is some pva glue and scenery of your choice. and some paint.
Oh no worries im going to base them . However, i just have to find some snow but once i do ill get some nice snow model pics for you guys. Thanks for replies im getting some more this weekend so ill keep you up dated!
Yes no one can keep the 1st legion down! Even if GW killed us. But anyway, i planed on a DW list however im leaning more towards just plain superior firepower. I have a landraider on the way (i mention this alot, but im excited about it) and im going to buy another box of normal marines. After that i plan to play them as a codex chapter untill i get a hang of them, then i will go DW or azrel for a 1500 and see what i can do with that. Any suggestions would be great though! Btw thanks for rep!

Well guys heres an update on my progress. I have baught the box of space marines and will get my land raider soon (my b-day is the 5th). The problem is i dont own what i need to get the marines going. I want a plasma cannon marine and a sergent with a powerfist/ powersword and im not to sure where to come across these bits. Anyhelp would be apperciated!
yeah, plasma all the way! Plasma is just awesome at taking down termies, so my deathwing are the only termies left on the table. :sinister:
Anyway, nice to see some more DA, these blogs just keep popping up. I think there needs to be another forum just for DA Project Logs.
