Yes, after a near ten-year hiatus from collecting and painting Warhammer 40K figures, I was sucked in once again by Codex: Dark Angels. Rather than paint a straight Dark Angels army, I have created my own successor chapter, the Obsidian Swords. My first tactical marine stepped off of the painting table about a month ago, and a Land Raider Crusader is nearing completion (pictures to follow in a future post).


The insignia was created by carefully cutting the dark angel insignia decal and rearranging the sword and wings. Then, I colored the sword black using a .25mm technical pen.
