Dark Angel Chaplain

o/

It doubles as a flashlight...
I finally finished my DA chaplain! Still not sure why I lost almost all motivation to paint him (lol, he's a Dark Angel chaplain and I lost my motivation...irony). Its not the new limited edition one from the DV box, as I don't much care for that model (so it'll sit in the box for a year or so before making an appearance on ebay). Rather this is my 'bitz ordered chaplain'. To be honest I really don't like any of the actual chaplain models.

I've named him 'Bane' as his mask reminds me of the one Bane wore in the latest Batman movie. As such I've been working on my impression of Bane's voice for him. Not sure how well I'm doing other than to say its probably just as annoying as it was in the movie. As you can see I used the glowing plasma paint scheme. Never tried that before and to be honest, it looks better than I thought it would.  I may have to go back and add that effect on the one painted plasma gun in my CSM 'Plasma Death' havoc squad. Speaking of the CSMs, I've decided to paint the Chosen with the powerfist from the DV set next as its such a cool mini!

Clean robes are for sissies!

Its been quiet on the gaming front this week, though as nice as the weather was yesterday (and as it is forecast to be today), I doubt I'd want to be gaming anyways. Its been perfect weather for an afternoon hike! That said, I'll be playing 40k vs. Screech Saturday, and possibly Rob on Friday...not holding my breath on the latter though. His work schedule or family obligations that suddenly materialize tend to negate his chances to play anything.

Great looking chaplin, Masta Cheef! The glowing plasma coils really are a nice touch. Hope the weekend games go well for you...

Nice work! I really dig the subtle glow effects you achieved - that's a great model!

You know, it just isn't right that he doesn't have a jump pack. I can donate one if you'd like...:)

You guys have all the fun. I haven't played for a month and it's giving me an itch for warhammer

@Neverness: Ya know, I haven't fielded a chaplain since that guy (who ironically was from a DA successor), so uh...yeah, shut up!

:-p

@Madival: Rob hasn't played since the spring!
