Dark Angels - Deathwing Knights and Terminators - Bone highlights

Afternoon #WarHamFam and #WarhammerCommunity and a happy new year to you all! I've been #PaintingWarhammer on my Deathwing. I last worked on these 'properly' in July, before that I'd started them in February last year! Of course, they're now all being updated with new bigger Terminators, but much smaller maces.

I still prefer these in design. Hopefully, when I do get round to making the new terminators if I just glue them to the base, no bits of slate, the scale difference might not be too noticeable.

So this is the first set of Skelton Bone highlights, the most laborious and tedious aspect of the painting and it's not even 25% of the tasks I have to do! But it feels great to have got them past this point. 

There are so many bits that still need doing, but nothing as demoralising as this set of highlights. It's all the detail bits and some might be fiddly [especially those banners] but they will make interesting challenges.

It's just getting the bone done then it's the greens, reds, greys and blessed verdigris and everything else is just detail work.

And that bit is really fun, because all the embellishments, like the eye lenses, blade effects, plasma glow and tribal markings just make the figures so much more interesting.

It's the personality that I'm adding and once these are all done I'll be satisfied with my Hobby Season, whatever else may come.
