Dark Angel Commission – First Rifleman Dread done

Here’s the first of the pair of riflemen contemptors I’m doing for Dave. I went ahead and knocked out one dread completely as I’m pretty unfamiliar with the Dark Angel scheme and wanted to build some experience since I’ll be doing so many for him soon.

I have to say the DA scheme is pretty boring. They don’t have any additional colors to add some contrast. That being the case I tried to add some visual interest by adding some red lenses here and there and some glowing sections on the abdomen and back furnace. I also did the base in lighter colors to add a little contrast.

Not bad. Four more to go.

Dark Angel Commission – Yo Dawg, I heard you like Dreads…

Sorry for my lack of content lately. After getting back from the NOVA Open, I went 5/3 for the weekend (100th place), I’ve been trying to figure out what I want to do next. Since I don’t have anything pinned down yet, I’m filling my time with commission work.

My first commission is for 5 Dreads for my pal Dave G. He wants to finish out his Dark Angel army not that a new rulebook is en route.

Here they are:

  • 1 pair of Riflemen Contemptors
  • 1 pair Chaplain Dreadnoughts
  • 1 Veteran Contemptor

The three Contemptor pattern dreads were built by resident assembly Swami Michael F. (Chewie) for Dave, while the chaplain dreads were built and magnetized by me last year.

I’ll be doing the Vet Contemptor last as Dave wants him done in 1st company (Deathwing) bone white. God help me…
