    Blood Angels MK4.

    So some of you may remember my previous Blood Angel plog, which at the time was my third BA army and primarily build for 40k. After a couple of years of getting along FW decided to start releasing shoulder pads, and legion rules and make us all special and the like. So i took the decision to sell my previous army about a year ago, take a break, and come back to the project with (hopefully) improved painting and better minis ( shoulder pads for all!). This army will be 100% Heresy based, centered around the theme of being one of the orphan BA fleets left scattered after failing to join up with the legion at the Signus campaign.

    Still at the dipping my toe in stage but happy with the new look so far, got a small army that i am putting together and painting minis based on how well they do on the field ( and tacticals, because you can never paint enough tacticals).

    So far done with the apothecary, some tacts ( including what i am using as my BA version of a vexillia) and a contemptor.

    Lovely Angels, the Vexillia is a good call, did something similar with mine, as I found it to be a very nice way of personalizing your force. Painting is very clean, though the grey edge-highlighting is a little on the thick side on that kneepad

    Re: Blood Angels MK4.

    Really neatly painted, are you thinking of free-handing something onto the ribbon on the dreadnought? Its nice that you added some texture and heights to the bases, I see loads of flat ones and it doesn't take much to make stuff stand out a bit more.
    Are these all done for now? some white dots on the blood drips might make them pop a bit but I am no painting master so all my stuff should be taken or not with heaps of salt
    I will keep up with this as these logs are great motivation ^_^

    Cheers man, would love to see your own Vexillia. Yeah the grey did get a tad much, my current plan is to mount operation cleanup once all 20 men are done, unless i ( or someone on here) spots something major. Need to keep the pain train going, tho for the grey i might just apply some black ink.

    Eeeek, you brought up 2 of my worse fears in painting, free hand and white spots on gems and the like. I will be honest, i have tried both and failed miserably, cant see me trying again untill i have the time to properly sit down, look at some videos and techniques and then give it another try. Tho i 100% the models would look all the better for them.

    Basing wise i have a simple rule, 50% plain, 40% raised and important minis on 2 tier raised (Srgs, Vexillias, etc).

    No painting yet putting things together, next on list tho is more tactical, and maybe a cheeky praetor .

    Ah, I see the confusion!

    As it is, I can't see myself painting a red Legion. But then again, I never thought I'd be doing Scars either...

    Managed to get 90% of a pair of Legion Gunslingers done before needing to put the brush down, happy with how they are comming, just some details like eyes, gems and the like to finish off and a tad cleaning,line trimming here and there.

    Re: Blood Angels MK4.

    Really like how these are turning out.

    Is there a list you're building/ painting to, or just what takes your fancy?

    Cheers mate, currently i try (looking at you librarian) to focus on units i tend to use in games. Same for what i buy, but cool things still sucker me in. So a general list/theme, which alters as my tabletop experiences ( and wallet) dictate.

    Re: Blood Angels MK4.

    Looks good.

    Might want to be more mindful of the posing, or at least placement of the models, the two dudes with chainswords look a little samey? And concerning Librarians in 30k, they switch up some of the tried conventions when they work, adding another layer to the game.

    Yeah see what you mean, will keep a eye out for it with future models. As per librarians, i agree that 30k librarian make some kick ass models, just never see anyone but 1k sons use any, tho i think i might try him out in a game or two just for the heck of it.

    Re: Blood Angels MK4.

    I've gotten decent mileage out of mine, even at ML1 so far.

    Pairing him with Seekers has been good, though I want to put him and a Legion Champion with my vets in the Ram for an upcoming megabattle!

    Good to know, tho seekers are another unit i have never fielded, you find them worth the points?

    Re: Blood Angels MK4.

    My seekers have been doing quite well so far, actually. The pointscost isn't that bad after the drop in the last Red Book, and the various specialist ammo adds some utility. I think bumping them to ten would make them even more worthwhile, though currently, they tend to slip past the radar, and then pick off Squad leaders and the odd unlucky Consul.

    Good job on the Contemptor, your red seems to be getting smoother, though I must advise that you drill those barrels, they stick out at the moment

    Re: Blood Angels MK4.

    Are you planning a full squadron of Basilisks for the list or keeping it to just one? It's strange to see it without the shield, yet I quite like the look of it like that.
