It's been far too long since I last updated this. I haven't been idle since the LPC challenge but I seem to have forgotten to update this plog. Naughty me!

Anyhoo, here's some of the fruits of my labour in the last few months.

First of all, my Venerable Furioso with Frag Cannon. I'm still painting up the other weapon arms so this guy can be modular and equipped with a range of weapons.

This is my DC Dread with Blood Talons and Magna-grapple. Lovely model to paint, I finished this bad boy off in a day.

Here's my take on the Sanguinary Guard, I've gone for a NMM look with these guys, I'm fairly happy with how they've turned out, but I've got a few tweaks to make with the next squad.

These last few models look ace! Very neat and tidy but striking too. Me Gusta! :P

‘Sanguinius will stand at Eternity Gate with tears in his eyes and acid in his heart, no matter what you and Erebus hope to accomplish at Signus Prime. Remember that, when your gambit there fails. Remember it when you face the Angel on the final day. Remember that I was the one who told you how it would really end.’

Those sang guard look really good. When I first saw them I thought "wow those are quite a nice gold with a lot of depth" then I read what you wrote. I should start reading then looking.

@Dem - it's a standard venerable dread but with Furioso and brass etched parts added. I'm glad people like the nmm scheme though, it started out as an experiment and I'm pleased that people like it.

Next up is a squad of scout bikers.

Really good stuff mate. Clean and crisp with some very good weathering :tu:

The grey let off a hooting cry in its own language and the legion of nephilim advanced, each of them phosphorescing an angry yellow.

"We will destroy you," it said. "We outnumber you."

Horus gave a rueful nod and drew his sword, a massive blade of oiled steel and adamantium. "You will try," he said. "But today you face the Emperor's sons and his warriors. We are the Luna Wolves, and this Legion is the anvil upon which you will be broken."

From high overhead there was a low crackle and a sound like distant thunder as sonic booms from the upper atmosphere reached the desert floor.
"We are the anvil," Horus repeated, pointing with his sword.... "Now behold the hammer."

Thanks for the comments Talnox and AM.

I've not been idle in the last few months (Well, I have on the painting front, work has been a bit manic) but I've finally managed to get my Scout Bikers to a point where I'm happy to unleash them on the world. I'm planning on adding some weathering and possibly some extra details but I'll see how I feel.

Any hoo, pics below, feel free to comment and tell me what you think. Cheers for reading.

The black marks are blood drops, to show that they're attached to the 5th Company. I need to tidy them up though and add some highlighting.

The wind shields are as they come - The bikes themselves seem sleeker than the usual Marine bikes and it's a fitting look for the scouts.

I did actually finish the scouts in the end but I neglected to put the pictures up - let me remedy that.

It's probably because I am an infrequent user of these forums, I have a plog on Warseer where I've been tracking the progress of this and my guard army. That being said, I do try to post my semi regular updates on here. You'll see a bit more usage in future as I've pledged to finish a mk3 armoured Sternguard squad and Razorback for the LPC. If I have the time, I'll try and sneak in Corbulo as well.

The army has been a labour of love, some of the minis in the army shot are over 15 years old and I've been collecting BA's since 1990 so the army has undergone a few changes along the years.

Thanks for the kind words, like all of us on here, the continued support of the community really spurs me along and it's always great to drop back in and see how many lovely Blood Angels armies spring up.

Here's to another BA victory in the LPC!

Nice army shots mate, most of my old stuff is gone :tu: although I did find an old Landraider in my Dad's garage which was a nice find.

Looking forward to your new stuff, so quit your jibba-jabba and make it so! LPC's rule :)

The scoutbikes are looking really good - reminds me of getting 5 of them...in time.
The dark and gritty colours do them great justice!

Oh, your other stuff is wonderful - especially the Sanguinary Guard. I haven't been around since 1990, but I know what it means to see how a force changes over the years...new units are added, leaving older units behind(because of increased painting/modeling skills), but your army looks great together, and its a huge army as well! :)

One question, if you don't mind - what did you submit for the LPC? Thanks!

Thanks for the kind words, I'm going to be painting a Mk3 Sternguard squad and their razorback transport. If I have the time then I'll be adding Brother Corbulo to the vow, but only if I have the time.

Very impressive army! I especially like the darker shade of red that you went with.

I prefer a metallic Sanguinary Guard myself, but the scheme you went with definitely works. What does NMM stand for?
