October Vow Complete!

So I decided to join in on the B&C Dark Angels Forum Path to Redemption project. What is the Path to Redemption you ask? From the Path to Redemption post: "The PATH TO REDEMPTION is a six month long event set up in six separate segment each a month long. You can join in at any time!"

I missed September since I was trying to decide what tools of the trade and what color schemes I wanted my newly bought and magnetized Deathwing Terminators to be. Luckily I figured it all out by mid October and I was able to join in on the fun!

I'm going to link directly to the October vow on the B&C forum but I'm also going to post the pictures directly here. And you'll get some close up pics of the Deathwing Terminators that I didn't post up there!

Now first, my original picture of the Terminators:

October Vow before

All have Thunderhammers & Storm Shields, a pair of Lightning Claws and Storm Bolter and Power Fist (Sergeant has Power Sword). The heavy weapon in this squad is the Cyclone Missile Launcher if you couldn't tell :P

So before I actually did these 5, I did about 5 test models to figure out a painting scheme/dipping technique. When I figured out which scheme/technique that I liked the most, I said screw it and finished the test model as well. So this is a bonus model. He unfortunately doesn't have magnetized arms.

Bonus/Test Figure

So the way I painted this was base coat white. Then paint all the details without shading/highlights. Then instead of dipping on The Army Painter Strong Tone, I painted it on. It was really easy to do and fairly straight forward. Now before you paint this on I recommend gloves and an old/cheap brush you do not care about getting ruined. I went to Michael's and spent four bucks on a crappy little brush set that came with 4 brushes.

Now that the test model is done on to the squad:

And now for the close ups:

Like I said in my completion post, I really enjoyed doing this. It was kind of tedious what with painting 30 arms, the Thunderhammers being the biggest pain in the ass, but all in all it was enjoyable. I just hope that I can get a November one done since we're closing on a house on the 9th and the rest of November is all moving. Anyway, I hope you like them as much as I do!
