Repent! You have been found guilty of not having painted all your miniatures yet. In this tutorial collection, we’ll show you not only how to paint the Terminators from the new Deathwing Assault box, but also the classic Dark Angels dark green and the black of the Ravenwing.

The new Dark Angels Deathwing Assault box can be preordered from Saturday, January 20, 2024 It goes on sale two weeks later, so following a two-week preorder window. Please note that there will be only one production run. I heard stock will be very limited, so I suspect the box to sell out quickly. Check out whether the box is still available here:

Our Dark Angels tutorials

To help you plan the colour scheme of your new Dark Angels, we’ve put together a selection of our popular free step-by-step tutorials.

Stahly shows you a recipe for a cooler dark green in this painting guide:

And of course, the black of the Ravenwing should not be missing. The new accessory sprue in the Deathwing Assault box also contains additional parts to decorate Space Marine Outriders.
