Deathwing Knights commission

Today's post is to show a squad of Deathwing Knights I have just finished, for a commission of a single squad together with Belial.

The models were great fun to build and paint, and literally drip detail. They have so many interesting bits - such as the Dark Angel iconography on the shoulder pads (reflected in each shield).

Here is the squad front and back.

The sergeant is a particularly imposing model, equipped with an intimidating flail. I can see the cape being a sought after bit for loyalist captain models in terminator armour....

And here are the close-ups of the rest of the squad - the first is my personal favourite; this marine wears a rebreather and you can barely see anything of his face, and I think that captures the moody nature of the Dark Angels...

Next up will be the Belial model...


  1. look amazing! what was your paint recipe? I'd like to copy that look

    1. Thanks for the comment! The recipe for the armour is:

      1. Spray white undercoat
      2. Basecoat entire model with Ushabti Bone (the spray bone colour from Army Painter would probably work just as well)
      3. Paint recesses with Seraphim Sepia - use a small detail brush and load it up with wash
      4. Relayer armour plates with Ushabti Bone (this is why I use a detail brush at stage 3; it means that stage 4 is less work!)
      5. Highlight all armour plates with Screaming Skull
      6. Highlight edges of armour plates with White Scar

      Hope that helps - let me know if you need anymore!
