However to reward myself for such selfless dedication and additionally to prevent me from succumbing to suicidal thoughts I have allowed myself 45-60 mins of toy time for every two hours of real work successfully undertaken. Strangely this system has made me far more productive than usual, it may have been the need to squeeze the maximum amount of productivity out of my limited time or it could have been just that I was really enjoying myself.... Either way I managed to assemble, prep, paint and complete an Epic Detachment of Dark Angels Veterans which are presented below for your pleasure.....
To differentiate my veterans from my standard tactical marines I managed to source some original MkVI marines from the early 1990s as opposed to my usual MkVII marines. I mounted these archaic warriors on the modern long bases so that they fitted in with the rest of the army. Their right shoulder pads were painted stone coloured and emblazoned with a black sword; and as ever I meticulously painted a white dark angels symbol on every left shoulder pad.
These guys are very much looking forward to joining their brethren from yesterday's post on the field of war. I witnessed first hand last week how effective my opponent's Veterans were; so I can't wait to surprise him with a few of my own!!
Next I'll be looking at painting up a little armoured support for my 6mm battle brothers!!
