Default Blood Angels - The 13th Company

So I joined about what? 2 months ago now and to date Ive been giving little bits and pieces of my army building, it was suggested that I should start a project log.

I'm still very new, especially with the painting, calling my force the "13th" company may not be completely fluff (Im honestly) not sure but it made sense to me
Even its just for the thread.

So Ive tried to pick a few tid bits and Ill add some more as I go, Id love some tips as I go.

The assault Squad (Last weeks project)


The terminators and Attack Bike I started monday night


Tactical Squad and Commander


The Scouts (Who's faces still need some love)


The Storm Raven


And finally, a view of the company so far



Still very very new to this

Looking good so far!

Any thought as to what you're going to do with the bases?

LOL oh dear I didnt think of that when I wrote it.

There are some select models amongst my death company that look horrid

I've been trying to concentrate on building necessities, Devastators and Sanquinary Guard are on the way. Still on the box of course. What I will need is to add more variety, so Ill need some Death Guard with optional weapons and jump packs, I need more Termies, a death guard dread.
I have no Librarians or Chaplains yet.

This is definately an area I need advice on, I feel Assault is a real good area to be competitive, I am tossing up between Landraiders or Storm Ravens too

Solid start man! Good to see another BA player active on Heresy. What red do you use to do you base spray, is it Mephiston out of a spray gun or something else?

What list are you looking to run? There's a lot of useful out of our codex, but it matters more how you work the unit into the army. Only as good as your weakest link and all, right?

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

its solid start...with the stormraven and tanks, just slowly add some damage (if you want) it just gives them a little more "life" but thats a purely personal thing.

To date it'sbeen chaos black from the can and then painted by hand with Mephiston
I .prefer the darker look. Those terminators have been done with Armypainters "dragon red".
Only got that in the mail on Monday.

Well Ive got some more images I plan to put up tonight but for now I wanted to actually give a listing I what I do have/own.

Mainly as I am looking for advice on how to best spend my money, find out what I am needing more urgently. I know I need more depth in the tactical squards and things for when I wish to add weapons and spent points elsewhere but I also needs tanks, I should look at things like Land Raiders and/or more Storm Ravens.

So any advice would be very very welcome, and in return I promise to show off my god awful painting tonight when I get home

Not bad for a new painter! clean lines and good precision, your models look good. You could give them a dark wash to make pop out more the details.
For the bases, try to think of a color that could contrast the red of the armor.

Have some rep for encouragement
