Painted: Blood Angel Scouts and Veteran Sergeants

Greetings once again InterWebs!!! It has been a little while since I have talked with you all but I am still here and still finding some time to get into the hobby room. While some of my free time has been planning and purchasing for my next BIG hobby project (Heresy Salamanders) I have still been plugging away at the last of the Blood Angel Infantry. I managed to finish up quite a bit and would like to present to you my Blood Angel Scout Snipers and a couple of Veteran Sergeants.

First off are the Blood Angel Scout Snipers:

Here are a couple of shots of the Camouflage cloaks. I tried for an Autumn-style and it actually shows up better than the pictures show......hmmm.

It is hard to take a picture of these cloaks due to the angles and light glare. I must look into a better solution.

As I was painting the Scouts I was also painting several other models (I like to batch paint) and a few of those miniatures were Veteran Sergeants with Power Weapons (to swap out for normal Sergeants when needed). There are 2 Jump Pack equipped miniatures and a Tactical Sergeant.

Power Axe Jump Sergeant:

An attempt at a 'dueling-style' Power Sword:

That is all for now, I will have a few more posts this week covering the rest of the painted miniatures I finished up today as well as a couple of projects I have on the build desk at the moment. Thank you for stopping by and taking a look! Comments are always welcome! Take care!


  1. Paintined figures... WOW!

    I used to play around with photography; have you tried cutting the flash with:
    1. a piece of "bubble wrap" (transparent but will absorb the flashiest part of the flash).
    2. A different platform (grey/black/red) to absorb flash)
    3. shoot the cloaks through plastic wrap (red) to show contrasting color... wouldn't show colors as anywhere near true, but would show color patches/contrast.
    3a. Interested? Confused? Look up quiliting tool to show contrasts of fabrics... Will it work??? i dunno, you're the expert :)

    Amazing work... glad there are people willing (and patient) to make stuff like this.

    1. Wow, thanks for the suggestions about the photography. I have never really messed around with photography other than just point and click. I will look into your suggestions although I do not use a flash when I take the above photos. I know I would like to get a better light tent and that should help diffuse the lights a bit better. Thanks again for the suggestions and comments!
