Dark Vengeance Librarians: Dark Angel & Guardians of the Covenant style

The Librarian is hands down my favorite Dark Angel mini from the Dark Vengeance box. It's just everything you want out of a Space Marine psyker: A severe face peering out from under a hood, a pose that belies the forces at their fingertips, and a big freaking runed sword. What more could you want?

This is another mini that both Yorrik & I have completed, so I figured I'd do a side by side comparison to show how different styles and paint jobs can give an entirely different feel to the same mini. As you can see, I stuck to the Dark Angel scheme, since I'm hoping to sell the DA half, and he continued with his Guardians of the Covenant.

I think I probably ended up spending a little more time on some of the details, like the glowing eye, but I think he nailed the force sword. He also has a better hand at the lined details at the edge of the hems, and the librarian symbol. By the time I got to the sword I was kinda tired, so I relied a little too much on washes to cover up my gaffes.

Once I sell off the Dark Angels I'm probably going to head to Hoard-o-bits and get another, I like the mini so much.

  1. Nice stuff on both accounts! Now I'm all excited because I just primed up mine last night. Angels of Redemption for me, though.
