Dark Angels Veteran Test Model

A buddy of of mine(alex) has reminded me if they are green, even if wearing PH armor, technically its the period of The Great Scouring. Below excerpt taken from 40k lexicanum: "The Great Scouring was the Imperium's counter-offensive against the rebel armies of Horus, following the defeat of the Horus Heresy in c.M311. Horus's campaign to strike towards Terra to achieve a quick and decisive victory had ultimately been defeated. The rebels were broken and in retreat. Before actually being confined within the Golden Throne, the Emperor had pronounced judgment on the rebels: they were to be driven into the hellish region of the Eye of Terror, which would hold them for all eternity. All records and memory of the Traitor Legions were to be expunged from the Imperial archives. Worlds such as Isstvan V and Davin would be scoured and the Traitors' associated troops were to be destroyed or driven into the Eye. It would be as if the Traitor Legions never existed."


  1. damn cool mate. I'm liking all these interesting knightly helms you're putting on them. Really makes them like the DA out of the HH book covers. One thing I might recommend is have heraldry on their shoulder pads to show individual knightly orders from back home on Caliban because remember all the natives of Caliban used to belong to orders of knights.

  2. yeh dude... fuck I'm kinda hesitant about my free handing skills for doing the heraldry... but ur right, I was going for the knightish look and it would look so much cooler if I can do more than just squiggly lines for text.

  3. Remember heraldry can simply be a quartered shield or a halved shield. It could be a diagonal line drawn through it with two different colours. It doesn't have to be complicated if you can't do really fine detail like filigree etc.
