Blood Angels Land Raider

Some shots of my Land Raider, the blod angels resin iconwas calling to me to be painted and then i just went on and did the whole model... since taking these photos i noticed that the dust weathering didn't continue into the forward black sections and have remedied this. I got it off ebay and the multi melta was missing so ill have to add that later when i find one! Any Thoughts or suggestions welcome!

Blood Angels shading washes

Said i say something more on this awhile ago. Sadly my camera is bit awful and so Its a bit limited, hopefully you can make out something in the Gloom!
Essentially Ive found the best two shades are Thraka Green and Leviathan Purple

Seth's wearing the Green and the Tactical Marine the Purple. The Green makes a great base for a dark red, such as the Flesh Tearers Colour scheme. The Purple a base for a lighter red. Its what I use for most of my blood angels. Baal Red is a great colour to blend tones if youve gone a bit overboard with layering. Gryphonne Sepia is great for adding shades later in spots that were missed or got accidentally painted over. All in all buy the whole new wash set theyre great and all have a use! Hope this helps, what washes do you use for your chaps?

Blood Angels Tactical Squad

Here are the last six marines to fill out my first tactical squad. They're made up of some old metal bodies i was given by a friend, and new blood angel parts (except for the melta gunner who is new plastic. These will land by drop pod, or rhino it across the field next to a razorback assault squad so that together they can both shoot things and win combats. This way theyl also both profit from the priests furious charge/ feel no pain that way as a rhino wont fit the priest and the 10 man tact squad (The full 10 are needed if you want the melta and multi melta for ay non-marine players). I'm Still planning on going back to these and finishing off a couple of blood droplet gems that are currently just red but im hurrying to get a 500pt force painted up to use in games. Similarly I wanted to appologise to those who follow to see praetorians, theyl have some more updates soon i promise!

Blood Angels Rhino and Airbrushing

Heres my first completed blood angels tank, as youl see at the bottom ive got a few more of these suckers to go. I decided to wack out the arirbush and give them a go on a nice day. I used exactly the same colour stages as for my infantry and then finish them with solar mach hardlining, weathering chips and dirt. I cant recomend getting one enough (although not the GW one, its trash)if your going to be doing alot of vehicles at once. I might try basing some infantry this way too at somepoint.

Blood Angel Tactical marine Testers

So I Knocked out a few blood angels marines, the other six to complete the tactical squad are on the way too. To stop everything i paint looking like its fresh out of a cartoon i tried a touch of weathering scratches using Charandon Granite, then boltgun metal/ mithril silver and finally odd touches of gryphonne sepia. Any other weathering ideas / tips would be most welcome!

Blood Angels RAS & Priest

Heres my first full blood angels squad, they will be fielded in a razorback when i get round to painting one up for them, probably equipped with Twinlinked Ass-cannons or Lasscannon's as my understanding of fast is they can move 12 and still use them, but couldnt use both the lascannon and twin plas so i might as well get re-rolls. Cheers for those who posted on colour choice, I went with your suggestions of the orange and cartoony look and im very pleased with it. RAS - Regular Assault Squad, in oppose to one with jump packs.
