Angelic Space Marine by Prometheus023 Angelic Space Marine by Prometheus023
This one isn't exactly a "new" piece as such, nearly two years ago I started making up some Angelic Space Marine models when Games Workshop re-released the Blood Angels but the project never eventuated for various reasons.

Dusted this guy off, did a few touch ups and made up the lava base for him and I'm thinking it might be worth my while to finish the other 19 of his buddies?

Is he supposed to be from a chapter derived from the Blood Angels?

only thing i say its missing is a orange glow highlight on his legs and lower armor areas to make it super detailed but its great as is.

Thanks! I'll readily admit that when I painted this, I wanted to add an orange glow to parts of the legs. But I wasn't confident I could do it and didn't want to risk spoiling what I'd already painted. When I paint the rest of the angels though, I'd like to try. And if I can pull it off, I'll come back to this model and give it that last finishing touch :)

a good idea would be to dry brush it with a mop brush for that nice genuine glow effect

Thanks! I was worried it might blend in with all the other gold too much but I think it ended up standing out rather well :)

White is not the easiest to paint. And you did great job with that!
Good looking stuff! Keep up with the good work!

Thank you!
This was painted with the old Skull White chalk, I mean paint. Skull White paint. I think the newer citadel white and Vallejo paints I now have, should make it much easier to paint more... Still, white's not easy.

Thanks! Yes, I've always found white (along with yellow) to be very difficult to work with!

I think I've painted a grand total of 8 yellow models in the entirety of my time in the hobby. A car when I was 9, 6 Imperial Fists (that I should have taken pictures of, dammit) and a Zoid.
And if I could never use it as the primary colour on a model, ever again, I would be a happy man :P

Thanks! That means a lot! It's one thing to make something people find pleasing, but to inspire or motivate? That's the best feeling.

You did a great job here!
The base is really good and I like the clear white armour very much. Nice sword ;)

Thank you very much! I'm glad the base and sword turned out well, they were my first real foray into creating those kinds of lighting effects!

So now you're doing another 19 of them? ;)

Haha well, I've got another 26 assembled and ready to paint, including characters... Just this one was pretty time consuming but I think an entire force of them would be worth it? Just gotta get a heap of other projects finished first!

Thank you! I was really worried about the base at first. Thought maybe it was a terrible idea at first but as I started to add the yellow it really began to look the part and I'm glad I persisted with it :)
