Hey guys and girls
I'm going to start my first project log *horray* :p
This is because I usually loose interest in my armies about a month or so into them and I really want to stay with the blood angels, so this will hopefully inspire me to finish it haha

Okay so I got the Sanguinary Guard yesterday And I would like to start with them..
Here is my first 'Official Blood Angel'
I'll post more photos of the other members once I've finished.. Any tips on how I can get that awesome Energy/crystal look on their blades?



I'll put more work into the next ones
And I'm thinking of painting their bases with a Desert theme

What do yah think??
Cheers - :drinks:

Wow that looks really good. I love the dulled down yellow/gold effect with the armor. Makes them look more battle hardened and less like they just arrived in a battle looking all shiny and new. I love the face as well very well done :eek:k:

Hopefully you stick with them till you finish them :biggrin:

If you want quick tut for the lightning effect this is The Wraithlord's way of doing it

Man, that Sanguinary guard looks just like this guy


Other than that, I really like the way he looks! The model, that is.

Hey guys,
Sorry i haven't posted for ages :p
Thanks for the comments and encouragement.. And Cruor99, That's a little creepy haha.

OKay, so far I have painted up another 2 Sanguinary guards, the Sanguinor and my Dreadnought.. Plus I've started some normal marines which i'll show you guys once I've finished them :)
I've tried the amesome-o energy effects but I couldn't get it :( so I ended up with this


Attempting to do free-hand


And I'm ashamed of the standard bearer ATM so i'll fix him before showing you :p

While I hate the Blood Angels and their stupidly overpowered and broken codex I grudgingly have to admit that you are doing quite a nice job here on the models and I look forward to seeing more.

I have no problems with the new BA-Codex. Quite the contrary :p
But Something Yellow, i do like your golden marines. And those Blood Talons,where do they come from ?
The picture of the Sanguinor, as it is taken from unusual angel (no pun intended), is quite stunning imho. +rep

Really nice models. What did you use for the dread's CCW? It looks particularly vicious.
correct me if i'm weong, but they look like skaven clan rat blades

your Sang Guard look great, a nice difference from GW's suckass colours, yours look a lot more intimidating. keep it up.

Hey fellas,
So i've been fixing up my Dreddy, sanguinor and the Sanguinary guard so I'll get some group photos once i've finished 'em all :)
In the mean time I have been painting up some assault marines...
Whadda ya think??
I didn't want to go into too much detail because I don't want to loose Inspiration, and by taking my sweet time I'll be sure to loose focus..
I haven't finished them all but they are nearly done.





Look who I found :D he was the very first blood angel i've ever done.. over a year ago, I'll fix him up (I'll find his backpack later)
