    Ever on the wing, a DA plog

    UPDATE
    So it’s been 3 and a half years since I started this painting log. Over that time, I’ve picked up a few new techniques, including how to magnetise arms and weapons, and make bases that are more advanced than the standards sand and flock. I’ve picked up edge highlighting, a bit of an understanding about shading, and some airbrushing. As such, I’m going to make of list of what I‘ve painted so far, and what I still have left to paint, which I will constantly update. I’ll also post a picture on the front page, of my most recent project, to try get some critique from new visitors, aimed at my current standard.

    08/09/2015: Painted a tactical squad and Deimos Pattern Rhino, for the 1st Tactical Squad (in Mark III), 3rd Company.

    That’s quite a list, and it’s not as green as I’d like. Currently I’m aiming at finishing the 3rd Company, and painting up any unpainted Death/Ravenwing.




    Hello, welcome to my Dark Angel Blog.
    Thought this would be a good time to start one as I now have a full Dark Angel Tactical Squad painted and based. o
    This army will be my journey into many paintig and modelling techniques, such as magnetising, edge highlighting, complex basing and freehand. So it won't start off perfect, thats for sure. However, with a bit of help from you and lots of practise from me, I hope to improve significantly.
    So first off, the squad.

    THis took roughly a month on and off to build and paint. It's a bit rough, but it is my first attempt. THats why I started with 3rd tactical squad, so hopefully 2nd will look better and 1st even greater.
    Next is a wee modelling challenge for myself.

    Title says it all really. Now the Special weapons chap and friends.

    Finally, if you haven't seen my other plog, here is the Seagent.

    So thats them. If you have any advice at all, I'd love to hear it, as well as any comments or requests for my method.(Not that I expect the latter, it's still quite rough.)

    There are 10 types of people in this world. Those who understand binary, those that don't, and those who also know about base 3.
