Painted Blood Angel Assault Marines

Well hello again! This time I would like to present my latest efforts. I have not picked up a paint brush seriously in several years and I am very pleased with how these Blood Angel Assault Marines turned out. My goal in painting these first minis was to establish a 'recipe' for the various colors used throughout the entire army. I managed to paint (and document the process) everything without having to mix a single color. Hopefully the pictures will do them justice.....

A couple of over view shots of the group of 38:

Here are a bunch of close-up shots of the 4 squads (from the 4th Company and 8th Company):

Hope you like them! I think they turned out rather well. Next up on the painting desk will see work being done on 5 Vanguard Vets, a 10 man tactical squad, 2 priests, 2 vet serg, and my take on 8th Assault Captain Furioso (from the Great Crusade).

Take care and thank you for looking! Comments are always welcome!


  1. Nice shots :)

    Is there a way to light from the feet up (think of a flag that is bottom lit. Then I could see more of the fine detail and less shadows.

    Look forward to seeing the next batch!

  2. Hmmmm....

    I will look into moving the lamps a little lower and see if that helps. Thank you for the suggestion.


  3. Lovely looking army... How do you find it does in games?

  4. Thank you Duce! I do not play all that often but when I do I seem to have little problem winning with a DoA army and it is just fun watching your opponent worry about where a bunch of space marines are going to show up in their backfield.
