Default Siskin starts with Blood Angels

I have come to the point where I have decided to finish the models I have before purchasing anything new. I have always loved the ASM, dreads and terminators and this is the main reason for choosing blood angels army.

Here I present to you my test model. This is a model I have had for a while, apparently before I knew how to prepare them for painting - there are some pesky mould lines there but I did not wanted to repaint the model jsut because of the mould lines. The rest of my BA are already well prepared all the lines are gone promise.

This is my first attempt on weathering the small models. (on my other Plog I paint Eldar so not much weathering there) tell me what you think, all C&C are welcome

That yellow Isn't looking good... The wash and the dirt make it look off, not sure how to do decent yellow myself (Never can) But I'd ask Jaysen or someone to give you a good technique, I've seen Jaysen's yellow, and It's very good. Don't take this in a bad way, the red is superb, they yellow is ruining the model for me though.

Hi Lethiathan, thnx for the comment. I agree on the yellow, so I had gone back decapitated my assault marine and made him a new head. No battle damage on the head for now and to be honest I am liking it a bit more. Tell me what you think?

As you can see I have decided to magnetize the Jump packs.

The new head is definitely looking better. You just need to dirty it up just a bit to match the rest of the model. Don't go as far as you did before and you should be good.

Looks good, I particularly like contrast between the eyes and the helmet and you've done the battle damage very well too. Now to crank up Ride of the Valkyries and paint the rest ;)

I will be weathering carefully the helmet, but I guess I got my yellows right this time Yup Raid of Valkyries always makes me think about the charging helicopters in Vietnam :D
After I am done with the scorpions from the other blog I would want to finish the 5 man ASM squad. I have received the airbrush now I need to plug it to the compressor and I should be ready to go. See you in a week time (holidays here I come)

Hi Heretics,

I have done some progress on my BA - mainly due to the facet that I finally started playing the game. It motivates me to have my army painted cause they look so much better on the table.
I have done a furioso, 2 drop pods, a rhino/razorback, 2 tac squads, 5 man death company, 5 man sanguinary guard, a chappy, custom made sanguinary priest and custom made cpt. wit relic blade/valours edge. HQ choices have exchangable back packs.

I have aquired a airbrush and the first attempt is the chappy (a bit to grey but i should be able to fix him up) - also i just saw that one shoulder pad is not done - derp.

C&C most welcome tell me what you think.

I ahve previewed the post and all the pictures are sideways - idk how to fix that, I am probably beeing really stupid her but I just put my 2 year old to bed and I have no strengh to fight this right now - if anyone can give me a nice fix for that I will repost them correctly. Same goes for the next post as not all the photos fit here.
