Dark Angels Horus Heresy style Test Squad and General Progress

I’ve been doing a fair bit of work over the last week with my Dark Angels, adding some finishing touches to my Ravenwing and Deathwing. You will have already seen these miniatures from my previous posts however I’ve now finished adding red detailing to tie these miniatures into the new paint scheme for my “green wing”.

Dark Angels Army progress- I hear you are a heretic now?

It’s been a few days since my last post showing the finished Legions of Nagash force and I’ve been busy working on my Dark Angels. I’ve built the Combat Patrol box as well as a Talon Master, meaning I now have all the miniatures built for my 2000 point list! However one step forward, two steps back…

They Come Back! The Legions of Nagash Project is Finished.

This last week saw me finally close out work on the Legions of Nagash project and I’m very happy to be able to present the finished army. I found the army on eBay last October and decided it would be a great introduction for my girlfriend into Warhammer Table top. Since receiving the army, I’ve made numerous repairs and tweaks, built the unbuilt kits which it came with and painted/ based all units.

My Dark Angels pre-orders arrived! Thoughts on the supplement & time to start list building.

Yesterday I received my Dark Angels pre-orders from my FLGS. I’ve opened everything, read through the majority of the supplement and must say, I’m over the moon with the book. Now it is quite thin, being just a supplement. (You will still need the main space marine codex if you want to play this faction.) However what it provides is background lore on the Dark Angels, as well as an explanation of the Chapter’s structure, squad markings and paint schemes for the main chapter itself, as well as the Dark Angels successor chapters.

Dark Angel Pre-orders and my Collection so far.

This last weekend saw the pre-order release of the new Dark Angels supplement for Warhammer 40k and I must say, I am quite excited to not only be getting new rules but also to see the lore progress. We all know that Luther has escaped from his cell on the rock and is supposedly gathering a “legion sized” force of the fallen. From what I’ve heard, this new codex will follow on from these events, with the Dark Angels responding to the threat and possibly setting up for a crusade. If true then the stakes for the 1st legion are huge and this plotline has the potential to really shake things up, not just for the Dark Angels but for the whole Imperium.
