Holy hell... It's been over a year since I looked at this thread and it seems to have accelerated.
I must have checked it every week in ~2015 and figured even then you had more blood angels than any other human on the planet and would slow down.

The collection of librarian and chaplain models alone is amazing.
The fact that they look about the right army ratio against the rows and rows of troops is insane.

Ha, thanks Ekfud! Doesn't hurt to check in once in awhile as I always find that I come back to my BA army even after some time away. Think this will definitely be one of those lifetime hobbies for me. The world is a big place and I'm sure there are others out there with a bigger Blood Angel army. I'm still working on building and painting some of the older firstborn models . Hopefully will have more to show soon as I recently picked up 2 of the old school all metal dreadnoughts.

It's been awhile since I last finished/posted a model but did manage to get a last burst of painting in before 2022 hits.

First is a 5 man Honour Guard squad. These are actually the old Blood Angel metal bits from way way back and I don't think this is even a valid codex entry in the current version anymore but I'm still quite happy to add this to my BA collection in order to check one more thing off my list:


Next one is another very old metal model...the venerable dreadnought which took me a long time to track down - finally find someone earlier this year selling a new in box version on Facebook marketplace that was local to me so I snagged that quick! This is my second metal dreadnought model and I'm still surprised at the heft of this thing which is a pain when it comes to painting. Thank god for the newer plastic kits!


Only remaining dreadnought left to paint and add to the collection is the classic BA one with the multi-melta (also all metal) which is currently in the painting stages.

Current painted collection sits at:
- 32,904 Points
- 421 Models

Another thing I did recently is I started tracking my painting and collection catalog in Notion via a tabled database with each painted model/squad with it's own page with images. This allows me to catalog not only the pictures but also details around each of the units with points, unit numbers, upgrades and type which rolls up in to a main table. This is a huge improvement over my previous google sheets. A few pics of this in case anyone is curious:




Finally since we're winding down 2021 I've gone through and did another year in review/summary of everything I've painted this year:

Thanks Auston! Actually already have old metal furioso in my collection already though I named him "Zariah". Also have a DC dread named "Amutio". If I do another version of it in the future (either plastic or metal) I will be sure to name that one Moriar.

Thanks ShadowsAndDust! Don't worry about how yours looks - we all start from somewhere and my original scouts weren't the best but I still keep them around to remind myself of my progress.

Thanks Viterbi! Yeah I was very happy to find the model (brand new in box too!) and add him to the collection. Just need to find a suitable name for him and get a 3d printed nameplate done up.

First models to add to the collection for 2022! Had the first week of the year off from work and with no traveling, I managed to get quite a bit of painting in during the staycation.

First up is the metal Ezekiel model added to the Librarian book club. Managed to scrap off most of the DA iconography or covert them to a wing/blood drop. Given we all know the DA are traitors...him turning into a BA librarian isn't that big of a stretch!


Next up is the all metal dreadnought. I already had the metal furioso in my collection and managed to grab this guy (pre-painted) from Troll Trader. Spent a bit stripping off the previous paintjob and repainted him in my army colours. The only thing left is to print off a paper banner similar to the ones that came with the kit many decades ago:


Finally, I painted up a 10 man squad of dual lightning claw terminators. These guys are a kitbash from many kits, BA terminator, DA deathwing knights, Space Hulk terminators, and the regular assault terminator box:




Haven't decided what's next yet...still have 30 terminators primed and based coated though I might change paces to a vehicle. Recently acquired 2 of the old Baal predators with the metal sponsons and assault cannon so perhaps will take a crack at one of those. More to come!

No that's a result to show for your staycation. Love the yellow helmets on the terminators, such a great contrast to the red. And amazing work kitbashing them together, wouldn't have guessed it, they look seamless.

Thanks Viterbi! I actually finished another 10 man squad of assault terminators (TH/SH). Just need to find some time to grab some photos and post them up...stay tuned

Took pictures of 2 more squads of terminators which were finished last week. These guys are equipped with thunderhammers and storm shields and similar to the LC terminators where they're kitbashed from many different terminator kits (blood angels, space hulk, dark angels and regular SM). My terminator collection is growing quickly and had a blast painting these up. I also tried to experiment with oil shading a bit more with these ones to try and cut down on time spent doing manual black lining brush work which turned out quite well and saved me about an hour off each model.

Onto the pics:

Squad 1:


Squad 2:


Still have about 20 regular terminators base coated waiting for finishing but think I'll switch focus to a different unit type (undecided for now). With these guys, this puts my Jan painted model count at 22!

Nope, I never really set goals for my hobby as I'd rather not have that kind of pressure on something that I do mainly as a way to decompress and destress. I would like to hit around 50 units per year which I seem to be averaging in the past few. This year I would like to get Sanguinius done and maybe another Lord of War like the Thunderhawk or Warlord.

Well you are nearly half way to the 50 mark with plenty of time to go in the year. Guess its time to break out the Warlord.

Thanks Viterbi! I wasn't too sure about him when he was first coming together but afterwards I really liked the uniqueness it gave to the squad instead of have all similar types of thunderhammer and shields. Hopefully won't be a point of contention if these guys ever hit the gaming table.

whalemusic360 wrote:Well you are nearly half way to the 50 mark with plenty of time to go in the year. Guess its time to break out the Warlord.

Thanks whalemusic! Yes, these terminators have gone surprisingly fast - some of which I attribute to the use of oils for quick shading instead of manually black lining/blocking out all the details first before painting. These bits of streamlining in my whole process definitely helps and gives me a mental boost when I see these come out so much quicker!

Warlord soon...I need to unpack him and give him a bath first which I'm actually dreading

Also took the chance to take some pictures of 3 metal techmarines that I finished back in Jan. Had these name plates printed for awhile and thought they were fitting:

Well after 3 years I've finally painted up one of my FW Sanguinius models. I ordered both the normal and special version with the diorama base back in Mar 29, 2019 and I spent the last 2 weeks painting up the regular version. My first FW primarch and I'm amazed at the amount of detail they've crammed into a resin model. Think I'll wait for another 3 years before doing the up other version with diorama base.

Anyhow...onto the pictures:



I've also managed to order one of the solar powered rotating display bases from ebay and found it works quite nicely in my display case with the LEDs turned on. Managed to get a decent phone video of it here:
