Default Pasanius' Blood Angels

Hi guys and girls, i can already hear the groans as i jump on the blood angels band wagon, but i thought i would start a project log to coincide with the Army Challenge.

So this guy is my test model, he is a lightly converted Forgeworld Red Scorpian vanguard vet (mk IV armour).

The highlights dont really show in the picture but im reasonably happy with him, i think the gold could use a bit more highlighting though.

I have several units ready to put together and paint so will try to do at least one squad of infantry, one tank/dreadnought and one hq a month.

I have already started converting my own Dante and Tycho aswell as Librarian and Death Co dreads.

I know its only one pic and the quality is poor (taken on my iphone, camera in for repair) but comments and feedback welcome.

Cheers

Love the Power Sword. Very cool Lightning effect. The new Blood Angel kits are beautiful, and I think you've put that dude together very well. +Rep

Hah, I have to admit I love the signpost he's standing on!

It's nice to see more of the Mark IV armour around (going to make use of that particular body soon myself) mostly since it's one of the marks that have been growing on me lately (I find the helmets especially awesome, which is strange since I hated them in the beginning).

The paint job is looking good, very vibrant red and the details on the miniature has been picked out nicely (power sword and such). Only thing I'd suggest would be doing the purity seal waxes in another colour than red - would make them stand out more (green/purple/pink or such).

Looking forward to see your takes on Tycho and Dante. +rep

Thanks xeno, another colour for the purity seals hadn't even occured to me.
The sign post is from the minefield/boobytrap set.
I have to agree with you on the mark IV armour its pretty slick i think that style and mark VI suit assault troops very well, a bit more steamlined.
I also have some marks II and III for doing my sternguard.
Just need to get motivated now!
