Dark Angels - Double Trouble army

Whilst I was taking my To Done! pics of the Ravenwing bikes I set up my Armies on Parade board to take my Double Trouble army showcase pics. Unfortunately I forgot to add the Techmarine as my HQ but nevermind.



 Not a lot to say really, its probably completely sub-optimal but its what I got and the old skool Rhino and Assault marines fits Luke's request to use old miniatures.




Bikes looking tasty amongst the rest of the squad. I can;t wait to have more bikes, I'm loving the Ravenwing now.


One question: do you think I should keep the Assault marines with green bases or re-paint the 'grass' as yellow to further fit my Ferron theme, Luke what do you think?



Looking forward to using them in a few weeks.

  1. Nice looking army shot. While maybe sub optimal it looks solid enough especially if you play to mission you should have plenty of options.
    As for the bases I'd be tempted to re-base to match.

    1. Cheers, although I can't take credit for choosing them. I do need to get some replacement jump packs though for when I take them for real.

  3. A few weeks? A week on Saturday! I look forward to the possibility of being hammered into the dust by these excellently painted killing machines!

    1. Well I write these in advance so it should really have been a couple of weeks. That said I've had to come home a day early from my holiday because my arm is in so much pain so the wife is not looking favourably on me attending... :(

    1. Another vote for rebating. Any suggestions? Total rebase or just paint the ground red or yellow? Its supposed to be sculpted grass and the vegetation is yellow. I don't want to do too much as I'll be doing a full rebase and repaint in the future.

  5. Great looking army! But, I do think the green bases detract from the overall cohesive look, so I think you should re-base, it will only compliment the old school badass-ary of the Assault squad!

    1. See reply to padman above, do these need to go red. Or can I get away with something else?

  6. I agree that you should change the bases to match. It will end up looking really good.

  7. Knew you could get it done in time. Bravo. I would adjust the bases a bit to match the others to be honest.

    1. Cheers, I was lucky to have some extra spare time to throw at it other than my evening sessions. It'd have been quite a pressure situation otherwise.
