Hello and welcome to my army building log. About a year ago I started a project log up on Dakka about building up a new army after a long hiatus from the hobby. However after the summer I had to return to uni for the final year of my law degree and had no free time at all so the project got put on hold. Now a year on I'm back from uni having finished and have a lot of free time again so decided to start the project up again. This time I've also decided to post it onto other forums though to get some more opinions and hopefully some more motivation ;)
For my new army I chose the Blood Angels which I got rather excited about after seeing they got a new codex and minatures. It had been a good few years since I'd painted any miniatures so I was a bit rusty and decided to start with a test miniature:
Looking back, this model had a lot of problems but really helped me get back into the swing of things.
Here's a group shot of how the first five tactical marines we're progressing:
After this the next marine I completed was going to be the plasmagunner for the squad who has a purity seal on his hand to hopefully stop any overheating :D
At this point I'd worked out quite well how I was painting each stage of the model and the next two squad members came along quite quickly then.
This next picture also shows the arms of Brother Noctis from Space Hulk and the arms of the Tactical Squads Lascannon marine.
And finally here's a shot of the first four marines defending an imperial Shrine I'm building.
Expect some more updates soon as I work through the rest of the log but this will do as an introduction.
