Dark Angel Devastators/Veterans - WIP

Hi guys and gals,

After I posted my goals for the remainder of the year here I felt extremely energised and decided to get straight on with it (thus ignoring everything else I had already started in that post...gah!) and pulled my Grav cannon converted devastators on to my painting desk. Which is also my buildiing desk, my work desk and my bin apparently...

My Devastators are built from sternguard parts for the legs, torso and heads. This was because I had them lying around, AND because I decided to magnetise them fully, it means I can still take off the weapons and use them as veterans or a command squad if I so wish. So I will at some point magnetise and paint up some additional arms and backpacks for them to fulfil that role as I am quite happy with how they have turned out.

Anyway here are the bodies all finished and done:

Apologies for the poor pictures, I just couldn't get the light and the flash to work together on these guys. I have a new lamp coming at the end of this week though! Much like the rest of my Dark Angels, they are properly Dark, with a concession to variety in the red and cream cloth. 

I am currently priming the weapons and back pack array so I should have some WIP pictures of those guys tomorrow or wednesday. I am also going to prime my anvil industry models I am using for scouts and hope to put some work into them tomorrow as well!

Peace out,



  1. Again, that darker green really makes for a very striking look with the red, without sliding into christmas effect.

    1. Cheers! I definitely think the key has been the highlight and not going to far with it like I did originally before yours and others feedback. It lets you know they are green and your mind fills in the rest.
