Bought this guy when I was a teenager in the 90s!   :D  Had no real idea what the differences in chapters were at the time, but thought he looked awesome.  Finally using this as a great opportunity to finally paint him!

Painting him in separate pieces to make it easier.  Converting his backpack to incorporate the book/icon from the Terminator Librarian kit...after 20 years I don't have the original backpack anymore  ;)  It should look more appropriate on the Grand Master anyway!

Just started to block in some base coats.

Had a bit of time over lunch to start adding some washes.  Army Painter 'Strong Tone' for the robes and parchment.  1:1 mix of Army Painter 'Strong Tone' and 'Armor Wash' from Secret Weapon Miniatures for the power armor.  'Red Black Wash' for the small patch of skin on his face.  Bit of a mix with Strong Tone and Red Black Wash for the Red power cables and tome covers.  Think I may use a leftover resin base from Secret Weapon Miniatures.

Worked on the robes and power armor for a few hours last night...starting to look pretty vivid.  These old Dark Angels models are just so iconic and badass looking!

Ezekiel should be an awesome addition to your Dark Angels. Nice work so far!
Don't try making a unit unkillable. its a waste of time and the dice gods laugh at you for wasting your time. Dedicate a unit to a job and make sure it does it til it's either dead or running.

That is looking very nice.  It really is going to be good in a Dark Angels army besides being a nice contest entry.
Repent, for tomorrow you die.

Thanks guys!  Can't wait to fell some chaos marines with ole Traitor's Bane haha  Though it seems a pretty grim scenario where Ezekiel is swinging that baby around in close combat  ;D

Another update from last night.  Shaded the green in the shoulderpads, put some script on purity seals, almost finished up gems on the sword, more work on banner pole (after the picture I added a cluster of purity seals to cover the finecast gap near the bottom), got the base almost finished, picture is not great, but got a lot done on the face as well...lots of just little things left to pull it all together.

Getting closer!  Finally attached the sword and backpack is just about done...been dreading the 'attaching of the base' part.  Think im going to clip the tab and drill a couple hole to pin him on the base.  Big time procrastinating that part.

Finished Ezekiel last night and got him put together.  lol I never want to have to use a pin vise on a metal model like this again!  It was really strange cutting the slotta tab off the bottom...point of no return  :D  Thanks again for all the motivation from the board!  Ezekiel can finally take to the field of battle with his brothers.

Congratulations on completing your pledge! Your entry looks great and has been added to the Judge's Table. You did a fantastic job painting him and great job on the cinematic photography! It really brings him to life! Good Luck!
