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. 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!
