Dark Angels - Macragge Tactical Squad - Red Planet BASE TO DONE!

Afternoon #warmongers and #warhammercommunity I've been #paintingwarhammer this Macragge tactical squad. I started with a black prime all over and zenithal Army Painter Angel Green on the models.


I then used a kitchen roll tube to mask off the model for a Red Oxide Primer on the bases.


It's always useful to have that red starting point and extra protection on the base rim. I know it;' going to be coated with Khorne Red but both primers give it that extra durability.


I then do my Red Planet BASE technique. Let's be honest though, it's orange! I do sometimes wonder what it would have been like if I'd have discovered weathering powders at the beginning.


More realistic and then I can dust to all the greaves, get Warhammer TV Peachy all giddy. Too late now. I mean the greaves look pretty dirty after basing, but I will clean all this up, which is a shame in a way.


Maybe one day I might consider going back and adding weathering powders around their feet, see if it works out. In the mean time I have to plan finding a replacement for my Home & Bargains Vermillion craft acrylic. I have 2.5 tubes left that will last me a year or two but eventually what am I going to do?


For now I get my Great Big Granite Big Build Basing stamp of approval.
