Commendable dedication; my plan to build an entire company of SMs stalled before it got as far as you have, without the extra difficulty of being in Afghanistan.

Update to blood angel project

Okay, my goal is to paint at least 5 models per week till I go home in December. So, far I'm on track with that goal. I've "finished" 10 models, my lightning claw terminator squad for 1st Company. Well, they are as finished as they will get till I get access to the rest of my paint and some basing materials. I'm seriously thinking about giving the whole army some nice, resin cast bases. I've been just using standard flat bases with green grass but it is just too plain and non-cool.

The real problem, aside from time and money, is that I don't think there is a list anywhere of how many vehicles the Blood Angels have. It only talks about dreadnoughts and thunderhawks. The number of transports, tanks, skimmers, bikes, and stormravens is left to the imagination of the owner. Bah!

I have created my companies from the space marine battle company template. But, since Blood Angels can take assault squads and death company as troops, I'm thinking of deviating from the template on my next company.

3rd Company
Captain: power sword, combi-melta
Honour guard: champion, company banner, novitiate priest, 2 x power sword, razorback twin-linked assault cannon + HK missile + storm bolter

3 x tactical squads (flamer, missile launcher, rhino)
4 x assault squads (2 x meltaguns, power sword, meltabomb)
2 x space marine bike squads (assault bikes with multimelta, 2 meltaguns)
1 x death company squad (5 power swords, 2 powerfists, 3 chainswords, 2 infernus pistols, jump packs)
1 x Death Company Dreadnought (blood talons, magna grapple, heavy flamer)
2 x Dreadnoughts (1 Assault Cannon, 1 Plasma Cannon, 1 Missile Launcher, 1 Magna-grapple)

There is a full list of there tanks\Ground units in the front of the codex, Hell my army is already a full non-heresy company then some.........Shame im pre-heresy so i need 1000 marines + Support for my first company to be finished D:

Also as your army is post heresy, you would only be able to have a mix of the following up to 101 models. (Page 9 Ba Codex for Veterans)

-Terminators
-Vanguards
-Sternguard

Are you intending on adding a Thunderhawk out of interest, that army looks cool as hell, but a Thunderhawk playing big daddy to the Stormravens would look neat.

I didn't spot any dreads - are they going in there?

Looks very nice though, good luck in completing it all.

That's an impressive army. And it's a Blood Angel army
I think i would draw your attention to the Army Showcase. This army deserves to be posted there.
And have some rep.
