Project: Blood Angels
« on: Mar 08, 2013 01:45AM »

So, I've started playing 40K in the past few months, and after amassing some Necrons from their tomb world, I've felt the call to arms from Holy Terra and decided I wanted to put together an Imperium army. The buddies I play most often with field Chaos marines and Tyranids, so somebody needs to do the Emperor's will.

That being said, I chose Blood Angels, as they've always been my favorite chapter (with Space Wolves at a somewhat distant second). I've started working on a few units, which are posted below. When I paint, I try for a mid-to-high tabletop standard; clean finish, decent detail, with a final product that looks good on the battlefield. No competition winners, for sure, but I'm generally proud of the level of painting I can bring to the table.

Thanks a lot!

Also, if anyone has suggestions on getting transfer decals to lay flat on the curves surface of marine shoulder pads, I'm all ears.

Very solid stuff man, from one Son of Sanguinius to the another.  No advice on the transfers, sadly- only practice seems to make perfect with the little buggers.

Use a razor to cut all the excess away from the decal. Use gloss varnish (brush, not spray) to create a foundation. Apply the decal onto the gloss varnish. Gloss over it when dry to seal it. Finish with a matte varnish. It will look just like you painted it.
