After having to give up my Space Sharks project due to monetary constraints i have decided to paint up my remaining FW marines into a small ( 1500-1750) Blood Angels force. As i have all sorts of armor marks ( included Mark V) it will need to be post Great Crusade and Signus which only really leaves 1 major event for a Blood Angels force to take part in, the Siege of Terra.

These first combat squad of tactical marines were my test batch, i am quite happy with how they turned out.

Comments and criticism are always welcomed.

They look good so far but the sergeant would look better if you gave him the bolter in left hand holding the grip as he can't really operate the weapon with a powerfist anyway, so it looks weird that he's holding his gun like that :)

Hmm i see what you mean, i will have to have a rummage in my bits box for a suitable replacement, thanks for the tip :D.

Work is being done! Below are my WIP sanguinary guards, who will be finished tomorrow after doing me proud in my last couple of games vs the foul Xenos of the Necrons and some Traitor Grey Knights ( their leader claimed to be some long lost hero who now lives in the warp and defeated the foul primarch Mortarion, as if any loyal servant of the Emperor would believe such obvious lies :shifty:).

148838148839

Base needs final layer, the gems need allot of work to make them stand out ( blood drops included) and some highlights on the armor ( nothing to much i like the feel that it is after/mid battle, rather then parade ground polish).

Also working on a stormraven which with the Chapter House studio hull extension kit i believe can be passed off as some sort of heresy era craft? If anyone has any ideas on how to justify it in the list i would grateful.

Small army update, nothing finished as yet the curse of the 'oh shinies' has forced me to begin work on different units all the time. Still with the amount of time/layering it takes me to get the red to a descent level that is no bad thing as it stops me from getting bored and just put it all in stasis.


Stormraven and 10 assault marines, armor done, based and ready for non armor painting before shading.

Nice work, I love the FW Heresy era marine minis. I'm thinking of doing Blood Angels for the up-coming FW Heresy supliment so it's nice to see some examples.

Cheers mates! Nothing new on the painting front ( did finish the red on the raven tho), but after having to proxy a librarian in a game from the 900th time i decided enough is enough! So i got to some work and have the basis ready for review!

Lots needs to be done ( waiting on FW for a delivery for the rest of bits :D) but you get a clear idea of what he will look like ( he looks like half his feet are in the air but that will be taken care of in the basing stage). I envision him a Signus veteran, who had been allowed to use his power after what the BA faced there. No hood as i dont think they would have stacks of them lying around however.

Thoughts and criticisms always welcomed!

Looking good so far! Being bone idle and I know it should be asked somewhere else but do you or anyone else know if I can use the stormraven or the other flyer (forget what its called) in my ultramarines army without having to buy another codex and take 'allies' in a game? Thanks :)

Stormraven is Blood Angels and Grey knights only at the moment, other marines can access the stormtalon gunship or better yet grab yourself Imperial Armor aeronautica for 40k legal flyer/AA marine goodness!



In thread related news i finished my librarian, will base paint him in the comming days, must say i am looking forward to testing him out in game this weekend :).

Looking good - I have questions!

1) What's your method for painting red...you've got a nice, even finish.
2) How did you find the Chapterhouse extension kit? I've been thinking about getting one as I don't like the Storm Raven 'out of the box' as it looks too squat, but was worried about how well it would fit???
3) I think the Libby would def. benefit from a psychic hood (is there one in the Grey Knight box?) as otherwise he could be mistaken for a non-psyker possibly???

Looking good - I have questions!

1) What's your method for painting red...you've got a nice, even finish.

Spray black, first layer of foundation red, then a layer of mephiston red ( dont forget to water down the paints!), then several thin layers of Blood Angels Red ( now Evil Sunz Scarlet) finally once the red is to your liking, black ink where the armor parts meet/ red ink on the rest.. The squad below is in the final stage. Can do a step by step next time i do up a squad if you like?


) How did you find the Chapterhouse extension kit? I've been thinking about getting one as I don't like the Storm Raven 'out of the box' as it looks too squat, but was worried about how well it would fit???

The kit wasn't too bad,not 100% tight fit but nothing horrid either. My main issue was in the gluing stage, but as i was using the newest GW glue which i have found to be of abusmal quality i cant really blame the kit for that!


3) I think the Libby would def. benefit from a psychic hood (is there one in the Grey Knight box?) as otherwise he could be mistaken for a non-psyker possibly???

I feared as much, i am in the process of hunting down bits to do a more senior Librarian, the existing one will probably get demoted to squad leader or vanguard once he is done.


153112153113153114


Ok work has been progressing slowly but surely! Last 4 members of the tactical squad in the final stages of their red being done. WIP pre heresy captain/ play as sanguinor, and some maximus pattern assault marines ( power weapons going to be vanguard).

I really like the Librarian; the older armour works really well with the Death Company/Sanguinary Guard parts. The impaled Plaguebearer head is also pretty badass!

Lots of work being done just not much finished as yet, that being said below is the finished model of the first member of my armada the strike cruiser Grace of Apollo. The black spots on each side will one day contain the legion numeral, but for now i really suck at freehanding anything not meant to look like the deranged scribblings of a chaos cultist.

The anticipation for my forge world Cataphractii termies is killing me ( they ship today) and as i couldn't paint today i dug into my bits box and got some minies put together towards the project ( even did the first layer of red on 2!).

156704

Pair of chaplains for the company (1 will have jump pack but have no era appropriate ones at the moment).

156705

Assault termie srg, i had old Tyberos from a previous space shark army and my love for the mini ( in addition to the only mark 5 termie armor i know of) made me keep him, he should great in 9th legion colors.

156706

Not a fan of the FW captain and standard bearer minis ( too short) so with a head swap here and some bits swapping there i made this guys ( which are next on the too paint list after 1 more strike cruiser).

Joined a 40k Escalation campaign at my local club yesterday, starting with a 500 point force of a minimum 1 HQ and 1 Troops ( no AV 14 or flyers) and building up 300 points per month from there. So i have 1 month to paint up my 500 points, with that in mind i made a 500 point list of things that have had no work done, and came up with this:

Librarian with terminator armor and stormbolter.
5 Terminators ( if FW ever sends them to me) with a cyclone launcher.
5 Assault marines with power weapon and flamer in a rhino.

This got me motivated so i dug out my space hulk librarian ( indominus pattern was in service during the later period of the heresy) and got some basic work done.

156776

Hope to finish him tomorrow as i ran out of painting time/light today.

Ok got a bit distracted by some BFG escorts but the librarian is now nearly done.

156865

Need to do the gems, finish the base and face, highlight the robes and drybrush the scrolls and seals and some general cleanup work, but in general i think he is going along swimmingly.

Nice and neat paint on the librarian, I like how you kept the blue to just the hood. Different, but works great! I feel the face could use some shading, some sort of wash perhaps?

Thanks man, some shade may indeed be needed will try it out.

Was working on these guys today.

157108

Was really trying to finish them, had freed the time and had my power painting music montage on, but then these guys arrived.

157109

And everything kinda became a blur of cleaning, gluing and basing after that :D.

Very nice stuff. I like the bright red colour youve got going.

Just a thought on the Tyberos conversion. You could use his a Cpt Amit who became the Flesh Tearers master.
Ive just read Flesh of Cretacia and he seems to be armed almost identically to that mini.

Nice idea mate! However i prefer to have my own company free from any named characters, gives me more freedom for their background during the HH and after.


how many points do I need for a playable warhammer 40k army?
I find 750-1750 to make for the best size games.

Well it has been a good long while, i have always maintained a log of my projects as a mean of keeping me on focus, life has a funny way of getting in the way of that.

I am currently working on a librarian for a game i have on Friday, he is about 50% done with much detailing left to do, he is the first mini i have painted in over a year and as such i have discovered much of my paints have gone dry, so i have had to improvise on some colors. Please with him so far and plan to get him done tomorrow.

Thanks guys, terminators will be pick back up soon enough i hope.


For now i finished the librarian ( or at least took him as far as i can with my skills and available paints). After that i had a sorting out of my bits box and made some 40/30k hybrid marines in order to boost the ranks on the cheap, not sure how happy i am with some of them but i guess you get what you pay for! There next on the to do list.

great work, love this thread.

just a thought, but maybe if you do more terminators, it might be wise to base them on with a starship floor base, rather than the usual scorched battlefield. Just because you know where the fluff leads those Blood Angels in terminator armour.

Got bored and looted the bits box, wip librarian with jump pack. I think i will leave the explanation for the jump pack as a gift from a captain of the Iron Hands after a cooperative compliance.

Quite pleased with how he is turning out, some of the decals and the robe highlights need some more work and the basing of course but overall i think he is progressing well.

Also a status update on the tactical marines, red is done but for final layer which i apply after all other things are done. The red layering is the most time consuming thing to them so i should start finishing them in pairs starting tomorrow.

Finished work on my Praetor, i am not skilled enough for eye work so he will remain so until my skills advance. Quite pleased with him, i did not want anything too fancy as i wish him to be a largely nobody line officer. 1 company assigned to some small expeditionary fleet. So just enough to highlight him as a model of import on the table.

Would love other people thoughts on him.

Good to see another Blood Angels Heresy junkie. Been watching here for a couple days now and like the progress you've been making. If there's any constructive feedback to give is possibly some greater use of shading to create some depth and contrast though I've noticed over the past year you've been increasingly doing so.

Used to have a sizeable Blood Angels army but ended up selling it so I could start over completely using only Forge World models.

Have been busy but managed to make some progress on the tactical marines, and found 2 of the masters of the chapters lying around, as it was the same model twice over i tried to differentiate it a bit hope it worked.

So it took a while but the termies are finally done. Pleased with them, only thing left is to decide which traitor legion to do the various scraps of power armor on their bases ( gonna let my games decide).

Was unsure of the white, but i wanted the legion elite to reflect the themes of purity, new beginnings and hope. And could not think of a better way then to stick some white on them. I think it turned out ok.

I clicked your link from the comment you placed in my log, and I'm glad I did! Very inspiring stuff :-)

You said you used black ink to shade the red armour, I use a brown one (a real ink, not a wash!) but I think the rest of our colours really match.. allthough I use the Vallejo equivalents.

Lovely stuff, but personally I think that your white is to flat. I think that perhaps you should try to use a blue glaze in all the shadows and then highlight with white again.

Back when I did ravenwing i did it a lot for my "wings" on the front and back of the bikes.

The technique is pretty simple. You paint white first. Then you apply the guilliman blue as if it is a shade and finally highlight with a white again. I think it gives some depths in the otherwise flat colour and best of all it is very easy.

Here is an example: http://buypainted.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/Ravenwing-7.jpg

Alternatively you can use agrax earth shade instead. It gives a more worn out look.

Interesting, glazing white. I usually just paint a light grey then highlight (leaving the grey to show in recesses). It is one less step, but harder to fix blemishes I guess.

Paint wise Nagash, Vallejo has a range of GW equivalents (but seem to paint better, and don't dry out because they are in a bottle) and a few other ranges that are (in my opinion) even better.

I'm looking forward to the weekend, when I have some more painting time :-)

So i hear, but i am unsure how mixing ranged would work out, hopefully the day will come when i am both in need of paints and can afford to jump range.

Rapiers done! I have it that when the marines of my company get too injured/old to keep up with the front line assaults they are assigned to the rapier batteries. So i wanted a more veteran/grizzled look then the normal FW minis. I am planning on adding a third one at some point to complete the unit. But it wont be for a while ( there expensive little buggers, but great models!).

217003217004217005Love your choice of Thunder Hammer, fits the style well while cementing the mini in 40k. As for the rhino door, perhaps the blue-tinted-green of the Alpha Legion? Would be a nice contrast to the red of the Blood Angel.

This log's awesome, always fancied a blood angels force, so many unique bits to work with probably the best gw plastic range by a long shot, enjoying the combination of models you're using, your red is spot on, as a few others of said i think a little practice with some washes/shades will really bring your models to life (I find the army painter ones are the best)

Thanks mate, i like to think i am slowly learning and getting better in tiny tiny steps. Any specific advice you care to give on washes/shades? Would appreciate it.

As i play more and more 30k i find my painting energy increasing, finished 5 more tactical marines inluding the squads communications.

Well split a HH BaC box, so finally got enough termies to finish off the unit, and got a second unit ( 12 pounds why not i say!) to make a CC unit. With this in mind i did up a terminator praetor and started work on the last 4 'tactical' termies. I also finished the last of the tacticals for a 20 man unit, but failed to take any pics as of yet.

No idea why the pics came out like that, no idea how to rotate them either as they appear fine on my pc, i am new to windows 10 so if anyone has any tips feel free.

Thank you both for the support and kind words, as per group shot i took one but could not find it within me to include the piles of unpainted models. So i only put together the 100% finished units and models.

I also finished up the machanicum representative to my expeditionary fleet, mostly because i got the model in a trade and love it with all my heart.

223994223995

And some hastily taken close ups ( forgot about them and lost the light) of the final 4 termies who joined their brothers in the group shot and have done me proud on the table many a time.
223996

Next on list ( haha like i am capable of sticking to those). Either a 20 man assault squad unit who has languished in dust for far too long, or finally move onto my cc and pistol armed tactical ( again 20 man). Heck its X-mas, first poster to pick one of the two gets to call the shot ( assuming anyone does by the time i start painting next week).

Well started work on the assault squad, no more time left today but i hope ot finish them tomorrow. I also took the chance to begin work on a BFG battlebarge, as i got a rather large game planned for next week and my current fleet needs the boost. It spent half a decade moving around boxes which has resulted in many of its parts being misplaced ( think i left its bits back home in Greece or Canada), so some 'retrofitting' was needed. I think it turned out ok, and on the up and up it at least look more 30kish.

First 3 assault marines done :D...17 more to go :cries:. On the plus side i also finished a long lingering primary's medicae.

I also realised far too late that i have no idea if yellow helmets for assault marines is actually correct in 30k, but decided i liked it so feth it.

Rhino for veterans done, i dont like the Rhino dozer blade so looted the old bits box for a alternative. Went for a dirty look, tho i think i might clean up the red a little, will see how it looks on the table first. While the background supports the use of Mars pattern rhinos during the late heresy i still feel a little guilty about it, just cant bring myself to cough up the amount FW wants for a rhino.

Having caught up on what you've done recently I must say that they all look excellent. They look like they will do well on the battlefields of the 41st Millennium :shifty: :p

Jet bike champion done, its the only way i can ever see me fielding the model, tho he would need a escort. If only the current FW jetbikes were a different pattern, anyhow as always comments/criticisms welcome.

224915224916224917224918

Pics with and without flash. Model was bought second hand with front aquila missing ( tho at a excellent price) so i had to make due. Tho i dont think it turned out too bad.

The iconography works, as all it really has is swords ( great for a legion champion who is a renown swordsman) and cloaked angels and wings, winch again go fine for BA.

Cheers mate, always nice to hear.

So i got the gauntlet throw down from a Tau player for next week, and figured this might be a nice try out game for the FW Knight Questoris list.

Work still needed on both models, but i think they come are comming along nicely. The colour scheme which i love seems to cause a very strong love it or hate it reaction to any who have seen it so far.

While my Mechanicus have taken over my painting i was in a BA mood today so poped out some land speeders, which are now 30k legal! I had bought these ages ago for 40k use, but since the BA rules allow them to have assault cannons in 30k some last second crew alterations were made.


I think they are serviceable for 30k too, but would love to hear peoples thoughts.

Since i play both 30k and 40k i thought it would be prudent to have a Dante model that could be used in both. Havent picked up the brush in a while, was good to paint again.
