As if I did'nt already have enough projects... www.jawaballsproductions.com Blood Angels Chapter Banner and Dante's Honor Guard for Golden Daemon
Posted by Jawaballs at 9:38 PM
Well the title was a mouthful, but it is as it is. I plan on entering two items into the Golden Daemon this year for my first ever entries. Item one is a Baal Predator that I will be entering into the Vehicle category, that tank appears in another post. Something I have been toying with since I started Blood Angels was a GD quality Dante and Honor Guard. SO, I decided to go for it.
I am starting with a Vanguard Veteran squad. One figure was great for a standard bearer. He was holding a two handed power sword. SO, I drilled out the pommel of the sword from his two hands, and inserted a brass rod on which I will affix the Chapter Banner, which I started laying out the base colors for.
For the Chapter Banner, I started with a picture of the banner from google, and just started painting it onto a black banner from the Command Squad sprue, using Mechrite Red and eyeballing the proportions. I used Shadow Grey to lay down the wings base, and bestial for the scrolling. Areas of shadow I left black. I really need to work on the head, chalice and whatever he is holding in his Left Hand. Any one have some insight on what that is? It looks like a banner or something. Any way...
For the rest of the squad, I am using the beakie as the Sanguinary priest. He is holding a chain sword aloft, and his left arm is attachable, so I am using the apothecary arm from the Command Squad. I cut off the blood vials from the apothecary chest and glued them onto his belt.
I added a power fist to another of the figures, and will be adding the Champion Shoulder guard and combat shield to one of the others, giving me a squad with a Champion, Standard Bearer, Sanguinary Priest, Power Sword/Plasma Pistol and Power Fist.
I started painting one of the models. I am using a black base, with careful mechrite red on the plates. Then I am layering Red Gore, Blood Red and Blazing Orange. I will probably wash some Baal Red into it too.
I want to do a new Dante. But I am considering making a whole new one. Maybe even an injured Dante being protected by his HG. But I have no clue what to do. Any input?
So there you go. Watch as I add more to this thread in the coming months. Only two months to go!
