Dark Angels - Primaris Chaplain on Bike Big Build TO DONE!

Afternoon #warmongers and #warhammercommunity I've been working on the Primaris Chaplain on Bike that I got for Christmas from my friend Pete. He'll be multi-purpose, for both my Dark Angels and potentially for my Guardians of the Covenant Primaris force - if I ever go through with it.

As discussed, I don't have Primaris in my Dark Angels because of the scale creep between my old skool Rogue Trade metal models and then the newer plastics. A third increase in miniature size would be too comical. But this guy is a centrepiece model and although I also have the Redemptor dreadnought for my Dark Angels I think in isolation these work, because of that specialness.

Ultimately, if I can live with it, it's OK. And, I can live with it. I get a Great Big Big Build BLESSED VERDIGRIS Stamp of Approval.

 I went on with my standard Red Planet Base process. I had dabbed some Vallejo Red Oxid texture paste on the outcrop - just to give it its some gritty texture.

It was too smooth otherwise, and I think it works better because of it, less plastic looking.

Here's my Great Big Big Build Base BLESSED VERDIGRIS Stamp of Approval.

The Chaplain himself has been primed black and I'll be working on him alongside the rest of my Ravenwing... now that's a challenge!


  1. Such a cool looking model. Can't wait to build my own to fill out the Ravenwing outriders. I'm looking forward to checking out your paintwork on this model!

    1. I don't quite know what I'm going to do - a lot of black though I expect ;)
