Hi guys and gals. This is my first post of any of my painted models, so be kind.
Im a big space marine fan, and have many different SM/CSM armies on the go. I also have some xenos armies as well which I will some pics of at a later date. I flick between armies often, and I find this helps keep me motivated.
Recently I have been concentrating on my favourite SM army blood angels and an Iron warriors army. Blood Angels were the first models I ever tried to paint when I first started, and they have been my favourite ever since.


Heres some progress pics.









I have made further progress on the BA assault marines I just havent got any pics yet.

On the iron warriors Im pretty happy with them, but Im intending to paint up some random imperial fist parts (helmets shoulder pads etc) to add some more interest on the bases.

Look foward to hearing your comments!

Your depth of colour looks good; especially on the red.

The warning stripes on the Iron Warriors might look more even if you used masking tape guides.

Nice work , will be following this. Also, just as a thought, although you don't have to do this, I suggest that you keep to the usual font that everybody uses and don't bother changing it.

Of course, you don't have to.

This is what I have been doing so far this weekend. I havent done as much painting as I would have liked as I have been putting together 30 grey hunters for my SW, and deathcompany for BA.
The Rhino is for a tactical squad that I have ready primed and ready to go.


The Rhino decals are shiny as I have gloss varnished them. Once I have put some highlights down and finished the metallics I will go over the whole model with purity seal.

The beginnings of my Baal predator. I had forgotten how difficult it can be to get a smooth red over a big area. I think I achieved it, but I can certainly see why people use airbrushes.


I have also base coated a terminator squad. Some of my favourite SM models.



I have nearly fininshed with my first assault squad just need to sort out the weapons and the chest eagle, and I think Im pretty much there. The red in this pic is slightly misleading as it looks more like the rhino in the first pic irl.



Look forward to hearing your comments.

Looking good. My only suggestion is that you might need to go over the clear part of the decal with paint to get it look even.

Thanks djinn24. I think I will need to paint the edges of the decal.


Currently working on another rhino, and have a razorback to construct as well. At this rate Im going to have more tanks than my IG army.

The glue sticks out like a sore thumb, its the worst part about working with decals.

True. But in my case it looks a lot better than if I attempted freehand. I may be able get one or two symbols to look right, but I would never get consistency across the whole army.
