Redemption of the Fallen and the Greater Good!

Lots of stuff going on.

First, I have finished my unit for the Redemption of the Fallen!  In case you have not been following, I am involved with another charity army build project this year. This time we are painting a Dark Angels army in support of Doctors Without Borders and sponsored by The Warstore, Secret Weapon Miniatures and The Nova!  I painted up some Ravenwing Knights and an Apothecary.

Information on the entire army can be FOUND HERE. But the short of it is that you can win this entire army, about 2k points of Dark Angels. All you have to do is donate! For every dollar you donate your name will be entered once into the pool and the winner will be drawn at The Nova Open.  You need not be present to win, and the Nova will ship world wide.  The army will come with its own custom KR Multicase too.

What else?

The Greater Good!

I primed with grey then base coated with Raw Umber

The tops of the tanks were painted with a Valejo Model Air tan

I tried to get a fade going on. I need to work it further.

Sergeant for FW Squad Alpha

Bring in the Mechs!

Unhappy with my first top base coat, I hit them with Vallejo Ochre, 

Then a lighter yellow, then finished with a Badger Yellow Ochre.
Now they are ready for the paint brush, but I may hit them with
a darker tan in the recessed areas first.

I need to learn how to Airbrush!

The Sergeant prepares to lead his squad.

More to come as I work on my Tau! I will be playing in the Trios at The Nova this year, plus I will have my own table set up the entire weekend and I will take on all comers! Come beat me down. :)

Glad to see you're joining the Greater Good! They were my first army, with Blood Angels being my second. After 6th, my Tau are back to play! I noticed a dearth of Crisis Suits among your models. Is it because you hate their looks? I've updated mine to be less sucky and more forgeworldy, but only using a couple extra stealth suit parts plus the bog-standard Crisis Suit kit. Strong enough to play with, and so on. Here is the link to the pic of my two completed suits, should you be interested:

Additionally, the two forum posts detailing their conversion are:

Anyways, wanted to share. Good luck on your endeavors!
