I finished a Heldrake commission yesterday, so I took this morning to take some display pictures of it. I have a rule that I don’t post pictures of my completed commissions until the customer has gotten the first chance to look at and hold their commission. You’ll be able to see pictures of the Heldrake probably tomorrow. While I was snapping pictures on the drake, I figured I’d take some time and get some good pictures of my Dark Angels. Here are the fruits of my labor:
We start of with a tactical squad.It’s a basic squad that I’ll be adding to as time goes. My plan is to simply build a few key sergeant options, the three assault weapons, and a few key heavy weapons.
Another tactical squad, this one comes from the Dark Vengeance box set. This squad makes for the back bone of really a second squad. I generally put the plasma cannon in the Devastator squad, and I rarely use the sergeant as is. Given how the Dark Vengeance box is still available and with the 7th edition mini-rulebook, I’ll probably have another one these squad soon.
My Dark Angels Librarian. Again, this model is from the Dark Vengeance box set, and again, I’ll probably will have another one of these guys floating around.
A Dark Angels drop pod. I magnetized the doors to prevent them from flopping open. It’s proven to be very nice.
My Dark Angels Rhino can also serve as a Razorback since I magnetized the top hatch. I didn’t magnetize everything to make every take. I tried that last time with my Space Wolves, and it was more of a pain that what it’s worth.
The start of a scout sniper squad. I really need to finish up the rest as I tend to bring at least one squad every time I play.
I don’t actually use dreadnaughts all that much in my games, but I had this fellow laying around. I striped the old paint off of him, and painted him in a nice Dark Angels color scheme. The arms are not glued or magnetized. I just use the peg and holes that come as is in the kit.
A squad of Deathwing Knights. These guys were fun painting and are a fun squad to play with.
My squad of Deathwing terminators from the Dark Vengeance box. I’m working on some more at the moment, so I’m sure you’ll see more of these guys.
Finally, this is my Ravenwing Stormtalon. I know Dark Angels don’t have access to Stormtalons. This is for the times I ally with regular codex Space Marines. It has also stood in for my Nephilim a few times. You’ll notice I didn’t go with the standard GW base and mounting rod. I hate that plastic stand that come in the kit. This a set I picked up from CorSec Engineering. I personally think it looks better. It has a lower profile than what comes in the kit. It also unscrews for easy transport.
I hoped you enjoyed my show and tell. Let me know what you think, and if you’re interested in a commission message me here or at Geek Out Studio.
