A deeper, darker, vengeance.

Just thought I'd fire up a quick update as to what I've been up to over the last little bit.

At the moment, I'm working on a few ideas for playable armies but the release of the new Codex Chaos Space Marines book has got me all a tizzy.

The project that is grabbing the most attention at the moment is the completion of the Dark Vengeance Set.  GW has a bit of a promotion going on where if you are the first person to complete a painted set, you'll get a prize.  Truth is, I'm just looking for an interesting challenge while painting soooo...  Here's the progress so far.

Here are the Dark Angels Assembled and ready to go.  I tend to weigh down the bases with nickels which wasn't possible with the slottas so I had to dig up a bunch of non slotta bases to make it work.  Assembly was crazy easy.

SE Chaplain from the Dark Vengeance box... super cool fig.
The boys are primed white (the Deathwing Terminators are done in Army Painter's Desert Yellow colour)

The always necessary pre-wash shot.
Just a quick look at the difference between unwashed and washed.
Whole Squad post wash with the major highlights redone on the left most fig (I always tend to push one to completion... call it a thing...)
Deathwing Squad Finished.  All that's left is the basing and matt coat.  I really enjoyed painting these guys!

More to come!
