    Full Blood Angels 2nd Company by ilikebmxbikes

    After a year or so break, I am back. The last project I worked on before I paused was a blood angels tactical and command squad. I decided to pick that project up and complete the entire blood angels second company. My goal is to paint a squad a week, all at a very high painting standard. I will only be using space marine bare heads from the Masters of the chapter box set. These heads are smaller than the plastic ones and I think make the space marines look a bit more in the proportions of the artwork in the codexes. If anyone has master of the chapter heads or needs SM plastic heads without helmets or SM masters of the chapter bits (minus the heads), let me know.

    With rumors of the new codex coming out, I was a bit hesitant to start the army now, as there would likely be changes that would either require me to go back and change units or outdate my models, by bringing new plastics into the line and updating the armylist... But I decided to do it anyways. I want to build this army as how I see blood angels, how I have seen them the past ten years being involved in the hobby. Some of the new 'upgrade' sprues and can make an army look tacky or over-cluttered with blatant iconography. So I start.

    Please note, these figures are all works in progress and I dont have a proper painting space yet. I am using my computer/work space. photos will will improve as the painting log progresses. They all have no matt coat on them either- so they are very glossy.

    Very nice, the company banner and chaplain in particular I really like! It's also a very angry looking red, very fitting I think.

    Looks really great so far.
    The one marine with the scars over his face looks nice, cool idea with that head
    The apothecarius looks also great, is the body one of the chapter masters with the right arm of the honor guards? Definitely one of the coolest convenversions i've seen for some time.
    That chaplain is a great conversion, I like it very much
    Besides I would paint the armor of the captain golden, would make a good contrast to the rest of the troops, don't you think?
    Is that company banner a free hand? If yes, it looks really good!


    Kind regards,
    Ostling

    You guessed the Sanguinary Priest Conversion! It is the masters of the chapter body, with a BA honour guard priest insanguinator and the plastic apothacary head and backpack.

    The banner is a freehand copy of the 2nd company standard pictured in the old Angels of Death Codex.

    For the captain, I am leaning toward painting his armor golden with white wings and a yellow and red striped shoulder pad.

    The figures havent been dullcoated yet, so the red still looks super shinny. Im going to finish all these figures, decal and base them before Dull coating the entire batch. In my experience, the dullcoat will even out the red ink on the armour a bit.

    Wow, that looks really great!! You have a big talent!
    Sounds great the description of your captains armor. Really looking forward on seeing the paint on it

    Damn what an awsome freehand banner. I love it keep this leves its amazing...
    But some of the figures seem to be unfinished (missing highlights).

    You must paint the captain in gold I would love to see him with a golden armor

    All in all I have to say this is a very nice army with cool painted marines and lots of awsome conversions! Keep it up!

    a very nice blood angels army you have done, the paint job is very nice and clean.
    the captain should be gold, with some bits of red and make his shoulder guards red too.

    This is looking fantastic.. as a long time collector of BA myself (4th Company).. I do appreciate what you are doing..

    What is your recipe for the red which I like a lot.. I'm re-vamping some of mine and love the colour you have achieved..

    Best wishes.... and subscribed

    Thumbs up Re: Full Blood Angels 2nd Company by ilikebmxbikes

    These bring back the best of the Red Era without all the fiddly bits.

    Good in every field I can think of, and with your ace-of-spades painting you really should get the Space Hulk Terminators for your force; you're doing too good to not have them.

    Judging by your smartly pulled-off Command Squad, you seem a slick converter. Perhaps a Mk. I Rhino or two could be mixed into your possible future tank park?

    I'll follow this - best wishes...

    I definatly want to get some space hulk terminators and combine them with some Space Marine terminators and forgeworld BA shoulder pads. I will probably only use parts from the Space Hulk figures but I do want to recreate custom Gideon and Lorenzo figures to lead terminator squads.

    The gold of the captain works pretty well with the others of the squad.
