no definately not blood raven matey - I know the blood angels are slightly lighter, but I wanted a dull look rather than the mainstream happy go lucky colour of red

Ok I have part painted my Dreadnought (Standard not Furioso)

1) Based
2) Mechrite Red
3) Black Spots for the base of the damage
4) Boltgun for the damage
5) Light wash of Bleached Bone for wings

Still got a bit to do though but very pleased with it so far

Nice work man, trade you painting chores, both the armies in my Sig line have to be painted including my veteran company (50 Termies and 50 Vets weee). I think I am going to steal your idea of a painting Diary bwhahaha.

Would love to see it. I do not envy you in the least, Ihate painting red and yellow. I like the painted damage on the dreadnought.

The only thing i would suggest, and take this from someone who has just learnt it, but thin down your paints. I'm finding this easier to work with and better control of the brush. I'll also suggest using the wet pallette to keep the paint moist, it works a treat. Thinned down paints may need more than one coat but it does give a much smoother appearance. Hope this helps.

from a blood angel collector since the 2nd edition i know what you must be going through! i would definately take the thinnig advice on board, loving the large painted chapter sign good work!

i have found painting a sqaud then lavishing hours over special characters building up the layers and detail makes painting red continiously keeps things fresh!

thats how i survived my 3rd company and half of the 1st and 10th!

good luck will keep an eye out for the progress!
