Angel Gang finished today.

These have been sitting on the painting shelf half done for about a year now so I spent this morning finishing them. Hopefully I'll run a Judges vs The Angel Gang necromunda game at some point.

Recent paint jobs... coming to a battle report soon.

Finished quite a bit off today. To be honest these are not my best, rushed them out to get back into painting (not painted anything for months) and very much 'army standard' The 15 fire angels and their commander previously posted are now finished (as with all of them there is the odd bit of stray static grass to blow off before varnishing), the Inquisitor with them is an old paint job but the fire angels were painted to be his retinue. Equally there is an old 'space scum' mini who is in the Inq's retinue as an 'arch militant' type. Outside of that force i've finsihed a *very* old war droid mini to fight alongside my merc force, an old 'Jerry Cornelius' figure who will no doubt enter a game or too as a rogue trader and lastly (and unlikely to grace any battle report) I finished off my Dungeons and Dragons cleric character mini - she's been close to completion for quite some time but needed basing and a few glazes.

Fire Angels

Some fairly rough and ready 'work in progress' shots of my Rogue trader Inq's retinue of 'fire angels' marines. I chose to do them in a very 'dirty' white as given they are the pre 'trader' 85 marine I wanted a fairly generic 'space troopers' look to them (as in white armour) but didn't want them to look too much like my Eldar. Fire Angels seemed like a good 'white' choice of a classic chapter... i never really like the way GW went with the 'ghengis khan in space' of the white scars (my other consideration). I briefly considered doing 'silver skulls'
but where possible I like to avoid metallic paint in any quantity and i dont think i could do non metallic metal painting justice. as it is i think 'fire angels' will do nicely having a weird KKK meets crusaders look to them and also being 'badab war' loyalists to counter my copplestone and naismith scult marines who i'm doing as lamenters (i'm totally going to regret choosing a yellow chapter as i find yellow a pig to paint).
