Default First Dark Angel - Updates 22/5 (Reply #7)

This is the first Dark Angel I've painted in about 5 years, so be nice :P

It's not finished, just basic green (not on one shoulderpad, or on the backpack).
I've yet to do the highlights, which will be subtle. I've also not finished the Purity Seal or helmet, nor the Aquilia (eagle on the chest).

Lastly, I'm not sure how to paint the weapons.

Anyway - pics:

Thanks, though it's a long way off finished.
I've noticed a few spots I missed first time (it's still in pieces, nothing is glued yet) so I need to get them, and I still need to attack the other shoulderpad and backpack. Then I need to re-blacken some of the lines I appear to have painted over (though it's harder to tell IRL )
Then the highlights >=D

Yeah, I was a little worried about the white.
It's basically 1 coat Bleached Bone, 1 coat Skull White.

Perhaps more, even thinner coats in future.

Where are the mould lines, might I ask?
If you mean the one down the side of the leg it's the light - IRL it's much harder to spot. It has been filed down, just not rounded off enough

Yeah, all the parts are seperate - nothing's glued.

I'm just having a bash
Chances are I'll paint everything seperately, and then work out how I want things to look model-wise. I find I can paint better when not working on a complete model

He's getting there
The photos look better when they're bigger, so click!

The armour is almost done (highlights that is), just a few touch ups.
Plasma gun needs black touchups, and the end (nozzle) finishing.
The eyes and metalics need doing, and I think one shoulderpad is missing highlights.
And ignore the dust :P
