Category: Blood Angels

So, I’ve not been posting lately. Essentially I haven’t made any real progress hobby wise. I have primed models and started painting them, but progress has been slow to non-existent. I’d love to say that I will get lots of painting done over the Christmas holidays, but I probably won’t. Still, I will endeavour to get something painted.

Looking at the Blood Angel codex, I have to say that I am happy with it. Blood Angels finally have access to some more fliers and anti-air tanks. If I am being picky, I would point out that the sons of the winged primarch still don’t have a unique flier, while the sons of Russ and Johnson do. Still, we know that the objective at the moment is to get codices out as quickly as possible.

There have been some nice points tweaks here and there. The new relics, warlord traits and stratagems, also bring Blood Angels up to speed with the other chapters (Space Wolves will get theirs soon enough I am sure). 

I am really loving the inclusion of the Red Thirst rule and the fact that it reflects the Horus Heresy version. It isn’t exactly the same, but it is along the same vein. It is also great that Blood Angels can now make use of Cataphractii terminators and other models from the Betrayal at Calth box.


Index Blood Angels

So, I covered Eldar, time to give Blood Angels the treatment.

So, first up, with the marine and other codices coming out, the Blood Angels, like other index armies feels like its missing things. Like I did with Eldar, I will point these out, but of course I do expect them to be changed with the codex. Continue reading

I decided that I need to take a break from painting Blood Angels for a bit. I also feel like the blog name should be 40K Blood Angels as of late.

So, this is a glimpse of what I am working on at the moment.imag0925

Finished off the terminators. They could do with some highlights and the bases need to be done. However, they will do for now. At some point I will do a basing day and get all the models I have painted recently based up in one go. I will also have to revisit the older terminator squad I painted up and bring them in line with the newer ones.

Hammer and Claw Pt 2

So, I have pretty much finished up the assault terminators. I ended up working on the Spacehulk Thunder Hammer guy.

Things have been a bit slow on the painting front this week. I have also been doing a lot of the more mundane stuff, like model prep (removing mold lines etc) and priming. I also assembled and primed a Drop-pod. Continue reading

Hammer and Claw

So, got to work on the terminators. The original plan was to do 12 in total. I had 10 terminators and numerous terminators from the old starter box set Assault on Black Reach and then the lightning claw and Thunderhammer/Stormshield guys from Spacehulk.

Almost There

Still managing to keep on plugging away at stuff. I hope I keep this going for some time.

I finished up the heavy flamers and other parts for the marines. I will assemble them later. Here are the heavy flamers though.

I pretty much finished the Death Company Dread. A few minor things to do and a bit of work on the base. Definitely good for tabletop though.

Progress Report

So, as I said before, I got a little antsy with working on the bikes. So, I decided to work on other stuff for a bit.

One of the jobs that needs doing is some re-basing. I don’t want to have to re-base everything, but I have an idea on how I want to use the different base sizes. I plan to leave my existing foot based models on the 25mm bases. Given that Jump infantry are bulky, I will have them on the new 32mm bases. I will probably have all the characters mounted on 32mm though. Continue reading
