Blood Angel's Fourth Company Motor Pool fills up

Greetings once again!

I had some spare time (which is a rare thing these days) that I was able to spend in the hobby room. On the painting desk were the last three 'Rhino-based' vehicles for my Blood Angels 4th Company. First up I would like to present my Baal Predator:

My favorite view! Staring down a fair number of barrels!

In this view below you can see the magnetic couplings that I attached which allows the Heavy Bolters to be removed for transport or weapon load-out changes.

I tried to write 'Glory in Spent Lead' on the front banner but was only able to get 'Glory in Lead'. This is a reference to all the spent shell casings this Baal loves to spew out.

Next up, fresh out of the workshops of Baal, we have a Whirlwind. I am really hoping these guys get Flak Missiles or Skyfire or something. Here are some views of the 'Breath of Baal':

I had an old original TechMarine mini that was just the upper torso and missing the giant wrench but I think he works as the Whirlwind commander.

I wanted to make some camouflage covers (one urban and one forestry) to show that the Whirlwind can go and hunker down and offer long-range fire support.

Finally rolling out we have a Razorback Transport which I had intended to do up as a TechMarine Recovery/Support Transport for the Blood Angel Motor Pool. There is a lot of additional stowage, tools, and gas cans all to ensure that the Blood Angel vehicles continue to function while on campaign. For Mars and Baal!

I think the freehand attempt at the wreath and blood drop nestled in the hazard stripes turned out OK, I am trying to get better at freehand stuff which still scares me.

The weapon system is interchangeable and I currently have the choice of: Heavy Bolters, Lascannons, and Assault Cannons.

I think the Imperial Guard Dozer Blade actually works well on the front of a Rhino. I know there are several companies out there making optional Dozer Blades which I may just look into for future projects. 

Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the Internet and taking a look! I am just finishing up my Storm Raven Transport which I will post pictures of soon. Take care.


  1. Those turned out awesome, man! I love how the hazard stripes turned out on the dozer blade, I'm going to have to try that on the Vanquisher.

    Good stuff!

    1. Thanks Joel, I am pleased with them. I thought you had done something similar in the past in regards to the dozer blade and hazard stripes.
