Red Angel SentinelsWhen I decided the other week to try and put the finishing touches to a few of my tanks I also thought that this would be a good chance to finish two Cadian pattern sentinels that had been collecting dust - no change here I'm afraid.
So now that I had this brilliant idea to get them done I sat about staring at the little walkers for a while. And I came to the conclusion that whilst I could add some little details and do a bit of touch up painting here and there, I couldn't be bothered to repaint pretty much the whole of the upper section of the crew compartment on both walkers - this had become quite badly chipped. Instead I'm going to leave it how it is as it kinda pulls off looking worn and battered rather than poorly painted. On one of the sentinels I am yet to paint and attach the pack/las pistol that go on the side of the crew compartment.
With that painting dilemma out of the way, I went about adding the Red Angel marking to the side of each sentinel - this is a transfer from the Leman Russ sheet. I'm trying to decide if I should just add single numbers to the sentinels or use roman numeral markings. Any personal preferences will help me gauge what will look better. I also repainted the lamp on the front in Iyanden Darksun. I did also try to improve the bases a little bit by adding some patchy muddy areas and some static grass. The bases still look a bit bare, but I'm hoping to add some debris in the form of a weapon or body. Now to decide which enemy of the Imperium I dislike the most. I suppose as they are Cadians it should be Chaos Space Marines or Daemons. Decisions decisions.
So without further ado here are Red Angel 1 and 2 - simplest way of marking them so far. Red Angel 1 first. Sorry about the amount of random stuff in the pictures - haven't got round to reinstalling Photoshop since the Pc rebuild.
