Fallen Dark Angel
Once again it has been a few weeks since the last update. This time it is mostly due to us loosing our camera so I have not been able to take any new pictures. Finally I decided to try out my mobile and hope that the inbuilt camera can focus enough on close objects and the light will be enough. Well enough of excuses. So I finished my fallen dark angel demon prince. I am happy with the over all result. The green stuff casting I did for the right arm did not come out as good as I had hoped but the other sculpting is ok. I was inspired by the Horus Heresy novels about the Dark Angels and their sort of medieval night in black armor with white tabard look. So I put a purple surcote beneath a layer of chain mail and a white tabard on top. I also made it torn and worn to represent centuries of warfare. The pose was inspired by another demon prince that I found on line, but instead of a rock under its right leg I made a defeated loyal Dark Angel in purple robes as a foot rest. The arms where also re-positioned to get the swords in front of him so that he could flex his mussels a bit. This is one fallen angel that the interrogator chaplains will have some trouble making repent. As I was working on this guy I got the idea that if roumours are true about the new 40k rule set will containe both Dark Angels and Chaos Marines I have the making of an army of Fallen Dark Angels. But we will se what happens. Now I will paint up some more Space Wolves and then I will go back to the Desert Eagles. And I am also currently saving up to the next large project for my mechanicum army, this project will not be as expensive as the titans but still not sheep, more on the order of one warhound, so it will probably take me some time to get enough funds to by the required components. Well this is it for now, I will be back.
