Default Dark Angel, Veteran Scout Sergeant Naaman

This was an idea i had a while back, i converted the model a while back as well. It was only today i sat down and painted it.

The conversion for the silencer (to represent the rule 'Silenced pistols' or what ever it is) is simply a rocket from the IG heavy weapon sprue cut down. The fin is first to go and then you cut the actual rocket in two a few mm from the side details. Cut off the barrel of the bolt pistol in the scouts hand and stuick on the silencer. too easy. The other things i did was too cut down a banner pole and add a magnocular to his belt at the back...

Also the under armour (clothing) is done using my method of inking found in the new TO newsletter hobby article

Here is the product.






C&C welcome

I think that it is a pretty nice model overall.

Yeah, it's pretty good. For future reference though, you can make some pretty cool looking silencers out of a length of brass rod (thus saving your more precious bits), the most tricky bit is cutting it smoothly, but any accidental damage you may do in the process just looks like wear and tear on the finished product.

Oh, ok then. I just figured these rockets would be a little hard to come by, but I guess you've got a surplus. Good luck on your kill team games.

the face looks just a tad pale to me, try a light wash of chestnut ink, that should make it appear a little darker.
