My last model for December, and for 2020 itself is this Dark Angel Librarian from the Dark Vengeance boxed set. As usual, this model was started quite awhile ago and then sat part-basecoated for a couple of years. Every so often I’d do a tiny bit of work to him and then put him aside again.
Even when I decided to knuckle down and try to get this guy done in the last days of December, it wasn’t actually easy. As you can see, this guy is just totally covered in all manner of detail and excessive amounts of bling. Even so I was able to add a little bit of freehand on the inside of the cloak – the lining, mirroring the style sculpted onto the outside as well as a pattern on the crimson, which my poor photography has managed to wash out entirely.
I went with metal armour in a mixture of green and gold in lieu of the “official” blue – which as I’ve mentioned before – I just don’t grok with. I’ve also been partial to giving my Dark Angels green and/or red robes and capes rather than bone, especially so on when there’s a lot of cloth happening.
Yeah, you can see just how much bling this guy is covered with. It’s quite a busy model, and already looks quite skittle-y without adding blue armour into the mix. There’s a subtle touch of blue tone throughout his sword, but I think that’s enough for this guy.
And here he is, alongside my other completed Dark Angel hero models to date. Obviously, I needs to get a captain and/or lieutenant painted, so (in theory) that’s what will be next for them.
