- It's freaking DEATHWING! Like I said, it was Space Hulk that first drew me to 40k, and I've always loved the idea of fielding squads of absurdly outnumbered bone-white Terminators to possible glory!
- Easy to carry. 1 cheerful little KR cardboard case, compared with any of my other armies, which sit in 2 such cases plus a couple more boxes wrapped up in a furoshiki. Much better for my aging spine...
- IVORY spray paint! Gets a lot of the most tedious bit of Deathwing out of the way. I do intend to lavish a bit of painting lurve on this army, in stark contrast to my Necrons and Chaos armies, which, frankly, are a product of my desire to put a solid army on the table with the minimum amount of painting effort.
- Finesse. I have none. My armies to date are all pretty blunt instruments, with quite a bit of room for error. Taking to the field with 29 Terminators is an exercise in very artful gaming, in my opinion.
Anyway, some pics!
|Makes a mighty fine Relic, even when it's not perfidious.|
|What's on the table now. Note the Blood Angel Librarian, who'll be marching with his Deathwing brethren.|
|The Cylone launcher from the Deathwing boxed set fit the Dark Vengeance Terminators perfectly!|
|Easy scenic bases. Take a slab of corkboard, rip out a chunk and superglue it on your base. The edges are later touched up with PVA glue and sand.|
|Spray black and drybrush once with Codex Grey, and again, lightly with Astronomicon Grey.|
|The Sergeant here is a work in progress, and I'm pretty pleased with how it's turning out.|
|If you remember this, you're awesome.|
