Lord Comander Balthazar of Strikeforce Animus, hereafter known as 'The Faithless"

At the heart of our Chapter lies the riddle. We are beings not made to contemplate the paradox, it is enough that we know it, and carry it out among the stars. As long as a single Dark Angel remains in the universe, the Truth will be known, protected by the riddle. 

Our story is not one of retribution, but of mercy. Think on it. Imagine, the Lord of our Legion, The Lion El'Johnson standing in the ashes of his home; In his hand, retribution - a blade suspended above the head of his brother, ready to strike. Aching to strike... but he stayed his hand. In the End he erred and the snake lived. 

Why? What does this story tell us of ourselves? What may we take from it into the future? How do those last actions of our Pregenitor echo through time and play out in our actions today? 

Consider this young master, for it is an aspect of the riddle you must answer, and in so doing, know yourself and our Chapter the better.

Part of a much larger commission. Everyday this week we'll be taking a look at the Dark Angel Chapter, exploring the quirks and hideous secrets kept from the larger imperium!

This miniature reminded me a lot of putting together a gundam suit. Couldn't help but shout 'Roll Out', or 'Autobots Transform" painting it either. I can see why this kit is so popular.

Quick WIP shots of the infamous Commander Farsight and the new riptide suit. Below you'll find a review of the new Farsight kit.

Farsight unboxing. 

So far I feel that I have been very fortunate with my fine-cast buys so far and it was with some hope I bought this one. Finecast seems to handle larger kits quite well, so lets have a look at this.

First thing I noticed was that the cast seemed slightly out of kilter. The abdomen especially had quite a deep groove on the connecting seem.  While not severe enough to ask for a refund, it is nonetheless an annoyance and dramatically increases clean up time.

I also found the details were a little fuzzy. The lines of the armour were not cleanly moulded and I found that I had to file most the edges to give a crisper finish.

Once assembled the miniature is striking and dynamic. Farsight is an excellent focal point for a force, if you are willing to put in the work.
