The 1st Legion update. Dark Angels Tactical Squad
So here is my first completed squad of Dark Angels for you all to see. Since the legion in a day project I have been working hard to finish 1500 points worth of Dark Angels for the Battle Bunnies Christmas get together and it was a really close thing painting late into the night before the get together to have them as close to finished as possible, leaving them only needing their bases painting after the event. Now fully finished and ready to go along with the rest of the 1500 points which I will be bringing you over the coming weeks.
Having only got back into the hobby a few months ago I was slightly concerned when I was approached about the legion in a day project having not picked up a brush in quite some time and not knowing how to use an airbrush at all! But with the help of Drake, Kaelo, Darko and Aveinus on the day we got through a large amount of the Betrayal at Calth Boxset, leaving me to finish off the models later.
At the Bunnies Christmas get together my Dark Angels got their first run out and although they got wiped out eventually, they managed to draw the attentions of the Death Guard, World Eaters and some of the Night lords for 4 turns this squad being the last to fall at the hands of the King Fluffs Night Lords. All in all they did a great job and I had a great time in the process.
Keep an eye out for more posts over the next few weeks including a painting guide for any that are interested.
