I am a long time 40k enthusiast of about 20 years, but have been on hobby hiatus for about the last 10. I have recently fallen in love with the hobby again, and my enthusiasm has only intensified with 8th edition coming!
Getting back into the hobby I have decided to embark on building a new army; after much deliberation I have settled on the blood angels, which I have always thought were cool.
A couple of principles of my Blood Angels project :
- Grim Dark! I love that side of 40k and want to capture it with my models. Dark, sinister, menaxing is the look I want.
- Angels of Death. I'm not a fan of the current blood angels "pretty boy" aesthetic (hate the unhelmeted boyband hairstyles...), old school angels of death vibes for me!
So here are my first models!
First Tac Squad
(I'm not sure if fluff wise the vet seargents rock the gold helmets, but mine will because I think it looks awesome!)
(Updated photos, with new makeshift light box... thing. Hopefully they are better quality!)
I hope you like them guys, I am super happy so far. Next on the agenda is a rhino so the boys have some wheels! Following that I think I will try a dreadnought, both because it will be fun to paint, and also because they look great in the new rules!
I'll try and update this as often as possible, but I am not a swift painter so progress might be ponderous!
Finally, a massive shout out to my man Luther over at the Mighty Brush blog (who I think posts here). His models were a massive inspiration, and guidance invaluable. Thankyou!
Thanks for any comments, means a lot!
