Alright,

I've been away from the hobby and the site for far too long. Now it is time to get back to it and get some armies done. First up to the plate are my Dark Angels. My tanks are nearly complete, and just need some details and transfers added to be done. I also plan to finish up my Dreads in the very near future.

I also have 5 Assaulty Terminators assembled and magnetized, so I can use either the hammers and shields, or the pair of claws as the situation dictates. I plan to add the 5 Termies from the Black Reach box, and be able to mix and match 10 of them (11 with the guy that came in the White Dwarf that I used as a test of the quality and use-ability of the Black Reach Termies)

Next up are my Drop Pods. I have 2 partly assembled, and plan on painting them in a not-entirely-assembled state, so I can do the interior details without the top half getting in the way.

Finally will come the Ravenwing. I have 12 Bikes, 2 Attack Bikes, Chappy on Bike, 4 Tornadoes, 1 Typhoon, and Sammael on Speeder.

My Dev, Assault and Tac Squads are in a mixed state, with some partly painted, and many still unassembled. They will come near the end, followed by my HQ, Scouts and other Characters.

Below is the state of my Armour (Minus the Land Raider):



Thanks for stopping by my Project Log, I look forward to your comments.

Thanks.

Here's the one I'm working on now. Need to paint the searchlight, skulls on the weapons and other small details, and clean up some stuff, then I will be applying the decals. As the title suggests, these are all WIP.

It's hard to tell because of the flash, but this one has working headlights. (LEDs):




Here are my Bikes so far, including an unopened attack bike, and enough stuff to make one more in the back. Very WIP:

Welcome Back

Hi Troszkowsky. Welcome back.

I am impressed with your armour section - lots of heavy support goodness! Looks like you have quite the extensive DA project planned. I look forward to seeing your army develop.

Not sure if it is there and the long-shot picture just does not capture it well, but one thing I would suggest is to drybrush or extreme highlight the edges of your tanks. Other than that, as a work in progress they are looking good.

Hey Troszkowsky, good to see another Dark Angels player on the forums. I can see you are a keen treadhead. The LED's are a nice touch to the tanks. I do think they would benefit from a light drybrush or line highlight of a light green.
May I ask what turret is on the Whirlwind? I look forward to seeing this army progress.
Cheers

It's been a long time (over a year) since I updated my Dark Angels Project, so I'll put up a few more bad photos for you to see.



This Army isn't just tanks...



Still has a ton of work to do. Will be working on these sporadically. Next will be terminator arms and putting some color on second bike squad.

lol, was never a big DA fan. the fists are definitely more my style. plus I'm less likely to lose them :p

do you always use those tamiya paints? you need to thin them quite a bit. plus they smell funny :p
Most of the time I do. I have a tube of white acrylic paint from an art store, and I use Citadel washes, but other than that, almost everything I have painted aside from my oldest models (which were badly painted with GW paints) have been with Tamiya. And yes, I do thin them out a bit on a paint palette before applying. I found that the pots are cheaper, much more accessible to me, and last eons longer than Citadel paints in their old pots. All I have purchased since the new Citadel pop top pots are the washes, but Tamiya works well enough for me. Oh, and I use 3 different Vallejo flesh tones, since Tamiya is a bit limited in their options there.

I'll snap some more pics soon. It's about time to start applying about 48ish shoulder pad transfers... Then I plan to fix my Chaplain Bike (apart in right side of picture there), then I will get the Speeders out, and try to get them in a usable condition.

why not order pre-sculpted shoulder pads? costs, yes.... but looks just as good as transfers (some would say better than transfers....)
