Dark Vengeance Chaos Lord done!

Image
So, I've now finished building/ painting the Chaos Lord from the 40k Dark Vengeance box set. I've painted him up with dull golden armour/ green trim, along with a purple cloak to signify his allegiance to Nurgle. I suppose that when fielding him in battle after the new CSM codex comes out, I'll probably classify his big sword as a daemon weapon, as I assume it would fit the part.

Here is the image:

Some models done (Chaos & Dark Angels)

So, I've finally finished the Deathwing Terminator unit from the Dark Vengeance box set.
I've also finished the Hellbrute, with golden armour/ dark red trim, as well as a couple of the Chosen CSM's.

Now, I'll get on with the regular Dark Angels squad, then the Ravenwing bikers and the CSM cultists, while waiting for the new CSM codex to appear, when I'll restructure my force accordingly.

Deathwing Terminator

So, here is the first time I've built/ painted an Imperial Terminator in ages, having decided not to do Space Marines. I've always had a soft spot for the Dark Angels since 2nd edition, however and along came the 6th edition box set, Dark Vengeance with Dark Angels along with CSM's.

Here is a try at painting a Deathwing Terminator:
I used the following colours to paint up the colours:
Crux Terminatus - Chaos Black, drybrushed with Skull White
Red - Evil Suns Scarlet
Green - Caliban Green, then drybrushed with Hellion Green (winged sword)
Bone White - Dheneb Stone, washed with Agrax Earthshade, then Screaming Skull
Base - Blackfire Earth
Brown for ropes - Charadon Granite
Scrolls - Skull white, then Seraphim Sepia

I have also started on the regular Dark Angels squad and once the whole squad is painted, then I'll post a picture up of them. Work is also progressing slowly with the rest of the Dark Vengeance models.

More models to paint (Chaos & Dark Angels)

So, having had the Dark Vengeance 40k starter set for a week, I've decided to keep both sides of models (Dark Angels and Chaos) and paint them both up. So far, I've finished 1 Terminator and 3 or 4 Tactical marines. Eventually, I will have pictures of the models when their units are finished, whenever that will be.
I am thinking of getting the Chaos Space Marine and Dark Angels codices when they come out (or as soon as I can) but it shouldn't be too long before that will happen, as I've always had a kind of soft spot for Dark Angel marines, due to the three different colour schemes.
