After a long hiatus, I've returned to the hallowed halls of B&C with a new found vigour for the Blood Angels angrier cousins - the Flesh Tearers.
I decided to paint the sons of Cretacia, as I wanted to revisit my first ever SM army, but didn't want to just paint more Blood Angels - I wanted a bit of a change, maybe something a little darker, a little bloodier.
And with the new Primaris kits coming soon, I decided to dive head first into the duality of the rage and the thirst.

There is no real plan to build an army, just a need to paint some characterful units, with a few conversions and kitbashes scattered throughout.

I wanted the Tearers to look dark and dirty, so it's a deliberately rough paint job. I'm not going to post everything here in this first post, just a few pics to show you all what I've been doing recently.

Good job on the models. I'm surprised so many have black armor. Do you intend to use the Death Company heavily?
Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

Great work on the posing that's a really aggressive looking army! What kind of bases are you thinking?

I might have a unit of 10 or so, but want to add in some assault Primaris too - hope they get a jump pack in the new codex :)

Going to be on sector mechanicus bases - the industrial looking ones.

Ah great, you'll have fun with those, especially if you like weathering. I've been using Sector Imperialis bases on my primaries but still add in some sector mechanicus also.

Made a start on the Chaplain to lead the DC - no bling, just black, red and silver. Going to tone down the red though - far too bright for a Son of Cretacia :)
