Painted Dark Vengeance Librarian.

Hi folks,

Not too much going on in my gaming world at the moment but I have managed to get some painting done. 

My librarian went from this...

To this...

Thought it's not shown here yet, I used some green stuff to block out the base and then painted that with a simple earth brown tones and now the Deathwing librarian in power armour is ready to kick butt. I was asked about the greens by my friends as they liked the vibrancy and it's a base coat of P3 Gnarl's Green, a darker wash/paint into the creases, then a series of mixes of Gnarl's Green and P3 Iosan Green to bring up the brightness. I like this a lot more than the chalky look you get with adding white/bone highlights to green.

Now that I've had a chance to handle the Dark Vengeance models a bit more, I have to say that this one is definitely one of the best of them. 

I got to the gaming store for a bit over the weekend to give a quick demonstration game to my student. We played a board game in our English classes last week and instead of using paper markers or the like, I decided to take in my Deathwing for them to use as playing pieces. They were a big hit and he decided to come down to the game store to see what it's all about. Here he is, on the right, watching a showdown between Imperial Guard and Orks. 

I didn't get pictures of the game in progress but I managed to snap a quick one of the Deff Dread stomping through the forest en route to the Guard's battle lines. 

I hope everyone is doing well and looking forward to Christmas.
