HPC 2016: Dark Angels and other imperial fascists

Post by moodymullet » Wed Jan 13, 2016 10:12 pm

It's 2016. Time to throw paint over hundreds of Space Marines! I'm compelled to rummage through my various stacks of sprues and bitz boxes to cobble together an imperial alliance centered around The Sons of The Lion.

I'd love to add to my current 3k ish DA force to bring them up to a full Lion's Blade Strike Force. With assassins. And the magnetized knight I started for my Putrid Nightcrawlers chaos army. And some Ravenwing. And I have the Blood Angels from the Deathstorm box wasting space. Hmmmm, sounds like I'm already biting off more than I can chew, but let's give it a whirl all the same.

For the Lion!!!

Here's an almost finished Company Master to start. He's not quite as good at torturing as the Interrogator Chaplains, but he will kill you horribly for being the wrong race. Fascist bastard.

Alright, lets officially get this train rolling. Another Company Master (lets face it the lightning claw guy is about as useful as a shitty stick on the tabletop) and a few tac marines with an assortment of weapons (lascannon, two multi melts and a meltagun). I'm trying to fit them in with my existing DA force so thats why they're not a "legal" unit.

Thanks to a horrible cold I've had the chance to get a bit done on my first HPC Commitment. Hooray for sick days... apart from the being sick. That bit sucks.

Now just a few more bells and whistles to base coat before the magic of the wash.

They're nearly there! Just a bit of highlighting on the blues and the basing to go on these chaps. Then the Company Master will get my full attention.

You based in black, how did you get the bone color to come out on the shoulder pads? The look is fantastic.

Thank you Sir! Now I just have to get into those test chip plates you sent me. I'd love to get some terrain as good as yours for them to stand on.

Thanks Goraim, much appreciated. It's actually quite simple: just put on two slightly watered down coats of the base cream rather than one. I used a P3 paint, Jack Bone, for the base. It's a bit dirtier than most bone colors out there. Then wash with Agrax Earthshade (AKA the answer to everything). Finally highlight with a slightly watered down GW old Bleached Bone, although Ushabti Bone can work just as well. I usually then do a 50-50 mix of Bleached Bone and Skull White to pop highlight a tiny bit of the helmet corners. I didn't actually do that this time. I probably will to finish them.
