Greetings once again! I had the chance to do some more work on my Blood Angels recently and this time I focused on a Tactical Squad. I love my Blood Angels to have some extra bling on them especially the sergeants. So I dug around in the BA Bits Box and found a bag containing a whole mess of OOP Metal Death Company minis. I took a closer look at the minis and found that some of them were not overly 'Death Companied' with moulded icons and what not, so I grabbed several and went to town turning them into Tactical Marines. It didn't take much to do and was easily done with an xacto knife and a small metal file.
Here are some views of Tactical Squad Pellario:
I grabbed a couple of extra OOP Death Company minis I have still and took some pictures of the before and after models to help illustrate what I did for this squad (I plan on using several different minis for the next Tactical Squad). The areas circled in red are the areas that I removed to make them look more like normal Blood Angels.
As you can probably tell the OOP Metal Death Company minis were not really super detailed with Death Company Icons (there are a couple that are but the majority are not) so it was fairly easy to reuse these minis as Tactical Marines and it does give them a little more Bling.
Thanks for looking!
