Hi all

Decided to do a bit of re-roll on my angels, wanted to trick them up a little with a bit more of a angelic theme. So without further ado here is my begininngs on my libby, it's only got it's first basecoat as still awaiting more in the post. Will also add a few more blood angels icons and a pair of wings at a later date.

c&c welcome and sorry about the naff pic huh.gif

I like the use of the Castellen Crowe model as a Librarian, but the sword facing down, and bolt pistol crossed makes it seem he is posing for the camera, and not going to warp smash the :) outta someone. I'd say lose the BP, and do a left hand pointing or casting. And reposition the sword in the right hand to face upward in a ready to attack mode.

okay then, bit of a tweak on the model, now I'm not the best modeller and hacking up a finecast kit doesn't come to easy to me. I'm sure a drunken monkey could have done a better job but think it's better than it was, decided to keep the bolt pistol though because I quite liked it.

Dont mind if it's too posey, after all they are blood angels! ;)

Hi all

Whilst still waiting for my paint for the libby to arrive I thought I would crack on with the first half of an assualt squad. Just applied an earthshade wash (still a little wet) so next up is highlighting and selective wash into the recesses. All the models will be leaning forward eventually to make them look more aggresive.

c&c appreciated.

I kinda liked the first pose. it's a bit more..........dramatic IMHO. the second is nice, and it's certainly gonna be easier to paint. but, the first pose is kinda saying, I am not afraid of you. kinda like a leader surveying the battlefield. just saying. the assault squad is sick BTW.

If you're gonna be a nerd, be an awesome nerd!

Paints have finally arrived :P ! So got the the armour done and are now working on the detailing. Still have to go through and wash bits, doing it in a slightly odd order so things look okay and thing will look bad.

c&c appreciated.

I had my doubts when he was all primer black, but he looks really good painted up. Well done! I tried not to use Grey Knights bits making my jump pack libby because of how I worried about the "too Inquisition" look, but yours is great!

Hi All

Got a little bored with libby so thought a I would do some work on my assault squad, heads awaiting to primed along with the wings. Might as well turn this into a general blood angels blog as I get bored easily with what I'm painting.

Sorry about the naff shots, they do look a lot better in person. ;)

Really going to try imporve my painting in the forthcoming year so all c&c and tips most welcome.

Cheers

Black basecoat
1:1 Mephiston Red/Abbadon Black - Light Spray
Mephitston Red - 45 degree spray
Evil Suns Scarlet - Slightly higher again
Wild Rider Red - Light from above just to hit the stand out areas
Gloss Coat - To help the wash flow better
Argax Earthshade Wash - mix with a little bit of water
Wild Rider Red Highlight
Elf Flesh Fine Highlight (Do not do this hungover!!!!)
1:10 Crimson Carrsburg(?)/Water Wash to tie the highlights together.

Hi all,

 

First year I've done the LPC so here goes. WIP of a 5 man assault squad to match the previous ones, it's actually alot further along due to the board being down ( good job for geting back online guys, it looks ace). Should have completed shots with a better camera by the end of the week.

@batu

 

Thanks bud, glad you like them. Airbrushes are a massive timesaver, I've only had mine for about 6 months but would never not use one for basecoating now.

 

Okay, the stormraven is done and should have decent pics for you on monday. In the mean time it's full steam ahead on my furioso, all the basescoating and highlighting is done so on to detailing, I'm really enjoying this one. It's only held together with blue tac for ease of painting too.

 

c&c appreciated. Pics are a bit brighter than the red is in reality.

 

Cheers
