|The MKVI “Beakie” models have come a long way since Rogue Trader.|
In a quest to continue to paint more Dark Angels, following up painting a MKIV Space Marine, I finally got around to painting the new MKVI Space Marine that we converted a little while back. As always, I used the same scheme I devised when initially painting my Dark Angels Kill Team, replying primarily on Caliban Green (Citadel) and mixing in Glacier Blue (Vallejo Game Color, 72.095) for highlights.
|The model was quite simple to paint, only really using green, silver and black.|
|The silvers were primarily painted with a few different Vallejo Metal Color paints.|
|Despite being released as a Horus Heresy model, I painted the model in 40k Dark Angel colors, including using a decal from that era.|
