I don't normally paint dark angels, but years ago when I was first starting my Iron Scythes, I painted up one of their all metal dreads for use in my army. After a bath in simple green all of the gloopy ~15 year old paint was removed and a very heavy dread emerged. The mold is kind of wonky, with pits everywhere. Rather than do any cleanup work I just decided to lay down some paint with my air brush.
I am not very happy with how this guy turned out. I rarely use Dark Angels green, and I think
it is my unfamiliarity with it that makes it so hard to use. There is a slight transparency to it
that makes it really hard for me to work with, even though I normally really like thinned paint.
Despite how it turned out, I did a little black friday shopping to pick up some terminators,
some DA veterans, and the raven wing box set. Black, Bone, and DA green should really
challenge my painting skills. Maybe I should invest in some more simple green!
Anyone have a good recipe for clean looking DA green armor?
