Dark Angel Falling

28mm, Space Marines, Warhammer 40K

I converted and painted this  for the #Naismithery challenge on the Oldhammer Facebook page.

Dark Angel Falling – Background image from Warhammer 40,000 Rogue Trader

He is of course a Dark Angel space marine based on the artwork from the Warhammer 40,000 Rogue Trader book on page 241. I am not sure who the artist is but it’s was always one of my favorite images from the book.

It’s amusing as he seems to have been stumbling backwards when the shot hits…but in this case as it gives the picture a sense of animation I think.

He was a fun build which had sat unpainted for ages so the competition was a good excuse to paint him up. He will form part of my fledgling Dark Angels force.
