It was a busy couple of days in my house. As well as graduating from Uni, decorating the house and attending a Nativity play, I managed to fit in some hobby (somehow...).
First up was working on the scenic base for my Dark Angels commander. I ordered a load of little bits, as well as some foam card from Green Stuff World, which arrived on Thursday. I set about chopping up the foam card and filling and texturing with polyfilla, adding some rocks, and generally trying to pull together the bones of the scene. I think I'm at the point where it is ready for sanding and undercoating.
I also did some work on the first of my Ravenwing Jetbikes. This is sort of a test piece for the rest of the army to come. I mixed together a Forge World jetbike and some bits from the Ravenwing Command Squad to add flavour, and a couple of other bits and bobs, such as the Forge World Dark Angels helmets. Pretty happy with how it has turned out to be honest.
And here it is undercoated, with a couple of decals added. Anyone any tips on how to do scorch marks on black paint?
I think I just about finished the commander. Just got the base to do but I'll finish this once I get painting the scenic base to go with him, so it all ties together.
And finally, I've raided my bits boxes and pulled together a pretty unique looking tactical squad for the Dark Angels. With a mixture of Mk2, 3, 4 and 6 armour (keeping it mixed, just like my wolves). I want them to look very knightly, so have also ordered a few extra bits from eBay.
