Swallowing a mouthful
Alot’s been going on hobby wise for me recently and its time to post before I leave civilization for the next week so here we go.
Blood Angels… Yea there fucking awesome and my next project even as I still finish my DE has already been deemed to be pre heresy BA, yea were gonna enjoy this shit. Going drop heavy and wanting to have a stand in for Sanguinius as this awesome picture would like to demonstrate means the army is going to be running either the sanguinor or mephiston as its stand in, with there being heavy drop pod love for them pre-heresy armies. Most of this has come seeing this amazing image and I begun reading the Horus Heresy books as of last week.
Every time I begin reading 40k fluff I delve back into wanting to amazing armies built around fluff, forgetting about the tournament comp that might make it competitive I feel this may be one of those.
Various companies due great model pieces to create good conversions for pre heresy and forgeworld has a great line up as well. As this gets done it will be posted with bitz info and techniques to help other create Pre-Heresy stuff.
At the same time I’ve been working on painting my DE, finished the vehicles using a black/ice blue color combo that contrasts very well and use the panels to break up the flat surfaces. The metal was all painted to look like a well worn/dirty bronze which helps offset the clean edge panels without ruining the look of the model.
The infantry models have been given a similar treatment with armor sections being black and blue mixed with metal segments that follow the same look as the vehicles.
