Off the Top of My Head: Painting 40k Dark Angels Standard Bearer

Off The Top of My Head

My dreadnought got me in the mood to paint more Dark Angels, and I decided to jump into robed characters rather than the standard green-armored tac-marines.

The new finecast standard bearer is a nice-looking model with a great bas-relief standard.  It’s what appealed to me about it.  The chance to paint the raised relief edges and also try my hand at the robes for the first time.  I had mixed results but I was happy with my first effort:

I like the standard, though my edging could use some touch ups...

This kind of shows how I tried to do the robes.  Not bad but it could use some honing it.

I'm actually most happy with the back of the figure and the banner.  I like the red and gold.

The base of the banner was fun to try, and I used ANOTHER piece from the defiler to accent the base.
