Sons of Sanguinius: Blood Angels Progress

As promised I have some shots of the (almost) completed first assault squad. The final member has been built and is now waiting to be primed. I think I will prime him in black to match the rest of his squad just incase the red has subtle differences.

Having looked over the photos and then cross referenced them with the actual models I have notices one or two niggling little details. The most obvious being the which highlighting on the melta gunners helmet not being as smooth or thin as it should be! These will all get ironed out as the army gets completed.

Anyway, over to the pictures:

The sergeant with a thunder hammer!

 I like to think of this guy as leaping out of the razorback, ready to rend the enemy!
I just could not get a decent picture of this guy despite taking loads of photos! The white spot in his right eye is in fact black, it's just I couldn't remove the flash. I think I need some more practice with faces anyhow, more research needed for the next one I think.

I really like the wild look in this guys eyes...he seems to be bordering on the red thirst as he carves up the foe!

 And finally the obligatory melta gunner! Never leave home without one.

Right, well that's it for now. As I mentioned in my last post I went to forgeworld yesterday and picked up a big box of goodies. Now I have all the parts I will need to make all the vehicles WYSIWYG and of course, beautiful! 
In the meantime I still have the second squad to paint! Back to the bloody layers and washes I guess.

Sons of Sanguinius: Blood Angels Progress

Hi folks,

I'm back in beautiful Leicester after spending Christmas with my family. So just to keep you ticking over until Saturday here are a few pictures of assault squad two. I have used army painter red primer for this squad rather than the standard black. Hopefully it will come out similar to the first squad in terms of red tone and it should cut the painting time down considerably!

Again pictures have been taken on my android in very poor light, but you get the idea...

These guys have been inked with baal red in preparation. The next wash will be with devlan mud.

Sons of Sanguinius: Blood Angels Progress

I know, I know, these pictures are about 2 weeks old. So the Squad is now actually finished (bar the 6th man which I haven't built yet) and the second squad has been primed and now sits ready for painting.

Anywho, enjoy the pictures (taken on my android, hence quality)
