Default Blood Angels project

Well since i have a log already for my chaos army I thought I should make one for my blood angels. Not much has been done with this army yet aside of building kits but only a few have managed to get paint applied and a gloss coat. I will post a few work in progress units and eventually update this as i make progress.

I really like your bases, how do you do the green sludge? Nice log as well, I intend to keep an eye on this one!

Thanks for taking interest, the green ooze is made with several thin layers of Vallejo still water effects with various stages of green paints and inks between layers. I start with a base coat of scorched brown then apply the first layer of effects once this is dry i paint a thinned down dark angels green then apply the effects. The process continues with snot green a green ink and the final green paint i end up using is snot green. Just before i add the last layer i apply a thinned down green ink. I can take progress shots of the ooze for the next update.

Well i thought today i will do something different and take progress shots as i paint a veteran assault marine and work on the ooze base. Here is one picture of a in progress honor guard marine that will be the flag barer, still need work touch ups and the eyes painted but at least its getting completed then being left in a box. I will be adding the pictures as i progress today, longer process then i anticipated.


Honor Guard

When i first was deciding on how to paint my blood angels i tried several methods and paints until i reached my final paint scheme, i wanted my blood angels to be a bit darker then the usual paint scheme with a few alterations of having bone pads instead of red.


The colors i use are from Vallejo and Reaper listed in order from left to right is; hull red, red ink, burnt cadmium red, carnage red, dark red, and blood red.


This image is pretty self explanatory just a white primed miniature.


First coat of hull red is applied.


Wash the entire model with red ink.


Paint burnt cadmium red leaving all the recesses alone.


Paint Carnage Red.


Paint dark red.


Final color blood red.

I decided to show the base as i progress also in between waiting for the paint to dry. The bases are simple and is just a matter of layering the water effects and various painting stages.


Self explanatory primed base.


Painted the base with scorched brown.


In this i already applied a thin layer of Vallejo still water. Once that dried i painted it with dark angels green.


Applied another thin layer of water effects and painted it a mix of dark angels green and snot green. Once that dried gave it a green wash. Applied another thin layer of water effects and painted it snot green.


The process continues adding layers of water effects.



I will add the rest of the process as i progress.

Well i been working on two banners for the army the black needs some more work but its getting there. The smaller banner is taking longer due to size but its almost up to par with the bigger version. I still got more work to due until i am happy with them plus i got to figure out what to write on the scroll.

Really cool work so far, and the water (slime) effects are really neat.
