|A Dark Angel amongst a decaying city scape (created by Totally Not Panicking).
I am continuing my quest to paint Dark Angels, and after talking with Koltti on our podcast I decided it would be fun to paint another Rogue Trader era model. It also marks a year since painting my first Oldhammer Space Marine for last year’s Olden Demon. Space Marine models from the 80’s are quite fun to paint, due to how simple the one-piece models are. Furthermore, it is amazing how inconsistent the old Space Marine models are, from different sized hands, feet, and even different helmet designs. I am really happy with how the model turned out, and hope to paint a few more to go alongside them.
|The Space Marine has an interesting firearm, looking more like a short barreled M16 than a bolter.
|Like my other Dark Angels, I painted the Space Marine's armor via dry-brushing/stippling, using Caliban Green and Game Color Glacier Blue.
|The back of the model does not have many details. There are not even the rubberized armor joints that are standard on most Space Marines.
