Painted: Mephiston, Corbulo, and Tycho

Greetings once again InterWebs!!!! The weather seems to have turned a bit around here and the days are longer and nicer! Even with the lovely weather we have had recently I managed to sneak into the hobby room to try and finish up my Blood Angel special characters. With a little work over the holiday weekend resulted in completed miniatures!!! Take a look:

That is it for now folks, I am working on the Dante's Triumph write-up next and a battle report/first impressions for the game Mercs as well. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look! Comments are always welcome! Take care!

PiP: Various Blood Angel Special Characters

Greetings once again InterWebs!!!! It has been a wonderfully warm weekend with a bunch of stuff happening! I managed to get in a couple of games of Ogre Miniatures on Saturday which was quite fun and a little bit of hobby-time on the painting desk on Sunday. I am still working on the last of the Blood Angel special characters which are the last of my normal Blood Angels army; I still have a bunch of Death Company but that will be a later project, I need to step away from the Sons of Sanguinius for a bit. Here, for your viewing pleasure, are some pictures of the painting process so far:

Painted: Blood Angels Furioso Dreadnought

Greetings once again InterWebs!!! I would like to present to you my Blood Angels Furioso Dreadnought; while looking for some minis for a friend I stumbled across this guy lurking in the back of the cabinet. This model was converted from an Assault on Black Reach Dreadnought before GW came out with their plastic Blood Angel Furioso Dreadnought kit. All in all I think he turned out fairly well for being a conversion/kitbash  using parts from the bits boxes. Of course I had attempted to paint him those many years ago and he looked nowhere like the rest of my current Blood Angels, so the first step was to bring the red areas 'in-line' with the look of the rest of the army.

Here are some various paint-in-process shots:

This shows the new placement of the Meltagun:

Now to start some of the initial highlighting:

Now to add some of the other colors:

 Not too bad for a yellow over black:

I managed to knock out the rest of the painting last night as the snow was ending; here is my Blood Angels Furioso Dreadnought all finished up:

A look at his Heavy Flamer conversion:
