Great job all in all! Love the stained glass coloring-- rather inspired to pick up the model myself because of your work!

I couldn't disagree more with lamenting the lack of the gunner. I might have bought that model had I known it comes with a bit to close off the handicap-gunner spot! That was the right decision hornblower.
Great work overall, edge highlighting is super thin & crisp, the stained glass looks great as well!

Thanks all on the stained glass. I'm happy with the results as well.

As far as the turret, there isn't an option that comes to close it off. That's a conversion. It's a hatch bit from the Sister's Immolator kit. I thought it fit the style of the Dark Angels flawlessly though.

Appreciate the compliments.

Working toward wrapping up the Darkshroud.

Also, started the Black Knights and Sammael. These all need to be done by Adepticon.

Wow, have I been busy painting! Sorry for the lack of updates, but I've been slaving away. Here's a few posts to catch you up:

Finished Darkshroud Land Speeder.

I didn't like the statue work on the top, so I came up with a little conversion. I'm pretty happy with how it came out, but I can improve it. Maybe after Adepticon.

I really dig the posts where you have the before and after for each painting session - really shows your progress. Nice work!
Bolter marines never go out of fashion. They are the little black dress of troops choices.

Interesting Darkshroud interpretation, must say it seems more in line with the effect than the original model.

Thanks. I like the concept. Not sure if I like the final result. I wanted the shroud to be more domed and smoother. I'm going to have to go back and revisit it later.
