Wow, painting on this bike is fantastic. The seam down the bike/tires and lack of Blood Angles markings let it down a bit though and it could use some little scribble text on the oath papers hanging all over him.

Overall very well done! Thanks for sharing.

I think the paint job is top notch! But should there be more BA markings on the BA Libby?

Admirable work as expected, but there are some things that let this model down, especially if it's being classified as "pro-level" painted.

The lack of blood angel iconography don't lead one to believe that this is a blood angel at all, even with a red bike. It just doesn't have anything that stands out as "I'm a Blood Angel" to me.
The seams down the bike and tires also leave something to be desired.
No writing on the seals, oddly enough, the wings don't have much depth to them. That may be a personal preference though.

The painting is still fantastic, and i always enjoy seeing what you've done, but to me, this just doesn't stand up to your previous works.

As everyone and their mothers are pointing: the painting is awesome, at the level "i wish i could do that".

The lack of BA iconography AND the presence of Ravenwing iconography are issues, but the real one is the lack of references to the "librarian" part... No books, no staves, not even a shoulder pad marking. Except for the blue armor, he dont resemble a librarian at all, and could be just a Seargeant on Bike with a Power Axe, from a chapter whose color scheme involves blue+red.Next time, try to convert your libby a bit more, adding more "stuff" around.

If my post show some BAD spelling issues, please forgive-me, english is not my natural language, and i never received formal education on it...
My take on Demiurgs (enjoy the reading):
Please, if you think im wrong, correct me (i will try to take it constructively).

Agreed. Should have gotten rid of the DA Ravenwing bling and used BA iconography. You may wish to research your projects a little better.. Not being mean, just helpful.

Nice paintjob though.

Yeah its an option in their entry can take either a bike or jump pack. The best part is that if they take a bike and use the Wings of Sanguinius psychic power they count as riding a jetbike.

The DA... Just ruins it for me. It's painted well but...

Okay painted but....Put some effort into making it look like a BA Librarian at least!

At the very least one of the shoulder pads should be red with the BA insignia, as that is standard for Librarians.

The paintjob is very high quality, though. Better than I could do.
