A buddy of mine, after getting tired of his endless stream of victories with his Tyranids decided to start Dark Angels, running them out of the Space Marine Codex. Here are some pictures of the Grand Master I painted up for him.
"Death to the Fallen!"
Grand Master Azrael was a fun model to do. He presented some unique challenges in his construction, him being metal and all. The model as it comes in the blister has a large banner pole on the backpack. As you can see, I clipped that off and pinned the ornament to the backpack. Now he should have an easier time fitting into a carry case! His sword was also broken, so I had to pin that to the hilt and fill in the little gap with green stuff. There's also a layer of green stuff in the joint at his left elbow, just to secure the hold.
As always, I primed Azrael with my trusty Krylon Grey Primer. I employed my usual "Foundation/Wash" painting method with the odd added highlight. His armor is done in Orkhide Shade, his robes and other white parts are Dheneb Stone washed with Devlan Mud. Reds are Mechrite Red and the orange on his sword is Macharius Solar Orange. I'm not sure Snot Green is the best color to highlight Orkhide Shade, but it works well enough.
I tried out the crackling lightning effect on Azrael's sword again, and I'm satisfied with the results. I probably could have gotten a little more subtle about the lightning, though.
That's all I've got for today. Stay tuned, folks,
