I'm not sure how well these pictures come out. But here is the completed squad. I'll get hold of a decent camera at some point.
I think I need two more squaddies made up as meltas and then these boys will be my vets who roll round in a chimera.

Camo is always a challenge, because I personally find that I always want the model to look like camo is the intended effect, but it's important to break up the model in a way that the eyes still recognise shapes, on and off the board.
In other words, for 40k you want camo without actually achieving camouflage on the model.

Thanks guys I really appreciate the comments!
I've think I've settled on a colour scheme now. I'm trying to avoid any bright colours and also any metallic surfaces as I think most troops would try and avoid reflections giving away their position.
There are some details to finish yet such as the face and gun but otherwise I'm happy. I've started building the first squad and will post the image of them once they've been built.

Theres some nice stuff in this thread well done, those blood angels and now gaurd are great. Not much to say apart from that. great work.
As to the color of the armor I'd continue the camo pattern just maybe a shade darker or something like that to differentiate the fabric and armor.

|Moriouce||I think it looks great! A naturalistic camo. Resist bright spot colours which screams "here I am, shoot me!"|

Thanks! I've built a quick test model for the colour scheme and came up with the below. I'm happy with the effect, but I'm stuck on the armour plates as I think they need to be dark but then what's the point in having camo?

|Iraqiel||Hmmm that's a beardy tough looking Sergeant. Looking forward to seeing a characterful squad to follow!|

It's been a while since I've posted or done anything so I thought I would share my latest idea.
I'm thinking of adding an Imperial Guard contingent as allies to the Blood Angels. So I bought a box of guard and rumaged through my bits box to draw up a test model. I would like to do the guard as a desert army in camo similar to that of the British troops in Afghanistan etc
Here's the sergeant, the backpack is from Kromlech.

Okay some stuff I've been working on.
The dreadnought is finally finished...
I've also been working on a captain.
And I've been re-basing the Dwarfs for Age if Sigmar.
I've always liked Warmachine bases, so took the opportunity to use them.

I'll do a full update now. Thanks Iraqiel for the comment.
I've moved jobs so not much time recently to do anything GW related.
I did have my first 40k game in 6 years two weeks ago. Playing my nephews Orks, it didn't go well. 600 pt lists and ended in a 13-1 victory to the Orks. That said it was a lot of fun and I prefer this rule set to the rules I used to play.
I did find some old DC from the 90's which it be started working on. I'm trying to magnetise all my DC so they can have jump packs or back packs.
I'm hoping they'll end up like my test:
As well as this I also have the rest of the tac squad primed:
And some space hulk termies I'm basing up.
Also I did manage a little more work on the dread this morning.
I have another game or two coming up on Monday against my nephews Orks again at 750pts this time. So hopefully I'll fair a little better.
Also, I can't tell you how difficult it is to get hold of Mephiston Red Spray! I had to travel to Bedfordshire from Northamptonshire to get two cans that I put on order while on visit to a store in Milton Keynes. None of the stores near me had it! Well worth it though.
