I, Crimson Cartel of the Blood Angels, vow on the honor of my Chapter to paint and present at least 4 objective markers, 10 death company marines, 2 Assault squad Sarges, 1 Sanguinary Priest, and 1 Counts as Sanguinor, on or before the 31st of March, 2012. I promise to provide at least two WIP updates, preferably with pictures, in that time. I vow that if I should fail, I will provide the Librarium with an article and wear the Signature of Shame until my penitence period is done...

1st update time brothers. Assembled so far are the objectives, dc, and Death Co. Smooth sailing on this WIP so far.

Simple. The Iron Warriors are a battered and dented vintage AK-47. Iron Hands are a modern factory fresh FN SCAR, with every piece of tech possible hooked to it. Both will kill you stone-dead, but one's a lot prettier while it's killin'.

Looking good so far! Indeed some nice ideas for objective markers. Particularly the banner is a fine piece!

Good luck with your vow!

Inbound Sang Priest. This is my first Priest sans jump pack. He retains the half and half scheme like my other priests, and is charged with the protection of the Legendary Captain Tycho and his Sternguard brethren.

That time again Brothers. Up next are our Lost Brethren, our waiting fate: The Death Company. They are 90% complete, aside from some basing touch-ups and possibly some added gore. These guys were tough to do (which is odd for mostly black models,) but they were all repaints from various other chapters. Lots of ebay specials that I was only moderately successful at stripping the UNBELIEVABLE amount of paint and primer from them. Pretty happy with them overall. Some even have some red poking out from under the black which I think is pretty fluffy, and was able to use this to sim battle damage. Lemme know how you think they came out

Demo, It's Vallejo model color, Bad Moon Yellow I believe. So far it's 2 thin coats on top of darksun base. Not sure if I'll keep em like this or add a few more coats.

AHA! I KNEW IT! <_< :lol:

ive used the same colour myself and mine was pretty watery. not sure if yours is as well but the coverage was terrible! have since moved on to sunburst yellow and its the complete opposite. great coverage! its abit darker but i like the look alot better myself :ermm:

perhaps worth looking into?

:yes: Terribly watery....

Looks like i'll be making the short trip to the shop to pick up some sunburst then. ANY positive suggestions when painting yellow are more than welcome. Pitty those poor poor impy fists... :teehee:

Verrry nice! Good choice of bits, looks a bazillion times better than the ridiculous GW model! Very inspiring, if you catch my drift ;)

Well done! For Sanguinius!

my only 2 points of critique would be that he looks like hes got gas, and the mold line on his power mace! Otherwise, nice work :)

Awesome paint job, and I see you too have chosen the path of dead nids on your bases :(

Your Sanguinor really stands out. It's a great conversion all around

Inspiring indeed! I too cannot stand the actual model, and have pretty much made my own version of every spec BA character,bar Lemmy (whom is awesome now), and meph,because im anxiously awaiting a finecast version to chop appart :D I wanted a very avenging angel look,with an ode to the defense of Baal thrown in,and I think I got that. Hopefully I can get better pics up soon b/c these ones dont do him justice... Thanks Snorri!
