Blood Angel Batch Painting from Horus Heresy Age of Darkness Box.
Following on from my last update, I’ve made a little progress on my Blood Angels for Horus Heresy despite work being busy and the hot temperatures in the UK.
However, I did get some paint on the non-special models such that they are now complete.
Following on from my previous update, I’ve added more black and picked out the details on the weapons with Leadbelcher and a highlight of Ironbreaker.
The missile launcher’s above show the colours used on the weapons. I have gone for a simple scheme and black and red so very well together.
There are also transfers on all the models, with Blood Angel wings on the shoulder pads, legion number on the left knee and unit marking on the right.
The basing is a simple affair with Vallejo Thick Mud (Brown) and a highlight of XV-88 to pick out the ridges. I was generous with the mud when applying it and it looks great – not least because it is different to the AoS Destruction base I normally paint.
There’s also loads in a pot, so I’ve hardly used any to base the models so far – it’ll definitely cover a lot of an army.
Finally I finished off the bases with a black rim to keep them neat the tidy.
There’s still the Terminators, Sergeants, and 2 special troopers to finish off. And I need to start the Praetors at some point…! In order to give myself something different to paint I’ve also assembled the Contemptor Dreadnought and given it a quick undercoat to be ready as the next model on the table.
I’m still aiming to complete by October when I’m meeting up with friends at Warhammer World and I think I’m still on target.
