De be Vampires!

Hey guys, Huron here, how is everything going? Well I thought it was about time to share some of the work I have been doing on my new Blood Angels. Currently I am working on the above WIP Death Company, the Interior of the first Rhino (below), and the first Tactical Squad. I have also been concentrating on Magnetizing everything I can so my Baal has lots of magnets that allow me to switch up parts as I want. The turret and side doors are fully magnetized as will the sponsons when I get around to them.

As you can see from the pic of the Death Company I am doing things a bit differently, namely using the Sanguinary Guard Death Mask heads and some of the Power Weapons/ wrist bolt pistols from the same kit. There are also 2 guys carrying bolters. In the long run I think I am going to split that squad in two, creating a squad of all bolter/pfist wielding DC, and a squad using mostly SG weapon components.

I have 4 more foot DC that need paint and 6 jump pack DC to jump around with Astroth when I eventually get him finished (his axe handle broke in several places and was not easy to pin. I need to do some GS work before finishing painting the model). In contrast the Rhinos interior is coming along nicely, I just need to paint up the bolter and do a bit more highlighting and it will be complete and ready for my to start work on the exterior. My Pathfinder 1000 list has two rhinos in it, a regular one and a Death Company one. I need to get cracking on the other one soon.

And finally we come to an idea I have been struggling with, how to base the BAs. I am a really big fan of the Dragon Forge designs Resin bases but find myself kind of poor right now as I am moving to Ashburn, VA in about a month and I need to save up for the move. That said I have plenty of GS and spare bases laying around so I decided to try to sculpt some of my own, to the right is my first attempt, what do you think? The 4 on the left are just primed while the one on the far right is paint in a concept scheme, what do you guys think? Will the all stone bases work or do you think they need something more? If so what?

Well that is it for now, next time I will try to have a new Battle Report for you, but I need to find a free Video editing program that does Mpg 4 for my 64 bit Windows 7 machine. Once I do that I will have ample video as I already have the source for the first 3 battle reports recorded.

Well until next time...

  1. I like the bases. But in an army, I think by themselves they would become stale. Maybe throwing some static grass in the cracks would help, depends on the look though. The grass would add a decaying feel. A cobblestone look would be interesting too. I say this because I recently have been pondering how to paint such a base and am still not sure. Just my .5 cent.
