Completed: Raphen’s Death Company & DC Chaplain

It’s been over a month since I’ve posted last, but I figured I’d wrap up something that’s been lingering too long on my Trello board.  Time to showcase some of the work I wrapped up over the winter, Raphen’s Death Company, and a more recent addition, the DC Chaplain, who has yet to be dubbed.  He died a rather inauspicious death at the hands of some Black Legion inspired cultists during the Apocalypse battle earlier this year…

Death Company Test Model

So those of you who follow me on twitter would have gotten a sneak preview of this guy.  I’m *very* pleased with how he turned out.  I recognize there are better painters out there than me, so if you have any suggestions, please leave them below.  I’m all ears.

So here's the first Work in Progress.  I've just done the general armour, layered up black primer, drybrush skavenblight, drybrush dawnstone.  Afterwards I wash it all with a Nuln Oil.  Swords and pistols I'm hitting with Khorne red.

First model pretty much finished.

Booyeah!  Some minor line highlighting in the finished product as I went back in with the dawnstone around the edges.  I decided to go for red ropes because there's not enough colour on him otherwise.  I was considering gold but opted against it at the last moment.

Another view.  :D

Now just to do the rest of the squad.  These Death Company models have so much bling it took me about 3+ hours to do the test!  Now that I have the scheme more or less figured out, hopefully it speeds the process along a bit.

Again, if you have any input I’m all ears.  Cheers guys, and happy gaming.

Welp…  I dove in.  I had always thought about running some Blood Angels in with my Imperial Guard, because every now and then all a Guardsman needs is to be shown it IS possible to turn Xenos into a messy, chunky paste in close quarters, instead of the other way around.  The idea hinged around a Death Company Dreadnought (Mr. Stompy’s big brother), some Death Company (a wood-chipper squad), and a Reclusiarch being taken as allies.  Just so happens this box checks two of those boxes, and takes it up a notch by including 5 termies and a Unique Captain!  Not bad!

I’ve also been rolling ‘nids around in my head for the past 3 months, and when this boxed set came out, I couldn’t resist.  I can tell already this’ll be the start of something huge.  My orks are weeping.  I just wanted something to break the monotony of the green and tan.  Unfortunately the Greenskins didn’t fit that billing… 😦

I have never seen so much plastic in one box before.  Glorious.

Seriously.  I got lots of 'work' ahead of me :)

Picked up the box on my lunch break, came home, watched some TV with the wife, and now Mr. Stompy has one more thing to worry about.

LOOK OUT BEHIND YOU!!!!  Damn that broodlord is badass.
LOOK OUT BEHIND YOU!!!! Damn that Broodlord is badass, although I reckon it doesn’t take much to sneak up on a Sentinel.

Anyhoo.  Company Christmas party this weekend hopefully I won’t walk back home in 6″ of snow without my shoes like I have in the past… Christmas tree hunting on the Sunday…  They’re wily sometimes, so it might take me a bit…  Which leaves Monday evening for a game.  We’ll have to see how this shakes out….

Take care all, and happy Plasticstorm!
