Dark Angels 5th Battle Company progress

Even though I'm yet to get a game with the Dark Angels, I'm still chugging though the mass of infantry.

I'm waiting on a tactical squad via Ebay and I've ordered a couple of devastator boxes which will help flesh out the squads that are missing heavy weapons, with the missing special weapons I'll be sorting that out later this weekend,

Squad one needing a heavy plasma cannon & Sargent, Squad two done.

Squad three needing a multi melta & Sargent, Squad four a heavy bolter & Sargent, Squad five a flamer & heavy bolter and basing.

The assault squad done par the Sargent's sword (and basing) which I'll be giving it some airbrush loving once I get the new pad set up, I'll be doing that with all the power weapons in this army so should have it nailed by there sorted, this is the youtube video that I found the other week that convinced me to give it a crack...

Looks so simple surely it can't be that hard?

So once I've the above done that'll give me the full 6 tactical squads and an assault squad, then it'll be onto the 2 devastator units and the remaining assault unit, but that'll be some time in April depending how Salute with the usual spending as well as a few kickstarters that I'm thinking of backing.

However I found out earlier that my yearly bonus is delayed until April so I could be losing out on some awesome deals but I need to work out what I can jigg about cashage wise!

Housewise myself (well more Nadine) have decided on an actual move date which will be the 29th March so plenty of time to sort out the main bedroom and maybe get some cheeky painting in before it all goes into boxes ready for the big day, I'm "hoping" to get the Sefadu starter set sorted out ready for the demo day on Sunday the 6th April at Coalville Library from 10:00 - 15:00 for a mere £2.50.

but the golden question is how to base them? do I go for fancy resin urban or scrubland style?
