Your all troublemaker , Graven is just the king of them, it comes from having kids and needing an outlet .

I tried a second model, no pics because I am tired and not thinking well, but I think just one coat of the Blood Angels Contrast is the route to go and I left off the skeleton horde contrast on the second and third guy, so we will see how that looks tonight when I get home. The second guy was a brighter red than the first and I think will be the course for the rest of the army. While I want them to be a darker scheme overall, I want that to come from the secondary color (Corvus Black) being used on all the trim and tactical heraldry. I may go for the colored blood drops for company colors, but with them all being Primaris marines and this being a crusade force I'm not sure IF I'll do any company markings at all in lieu of a campaign badge instead.

So that leaves my answers to
1. Red backpacks, Black ones seem to be part of the current Flesh Tearers pattern more, and I want a wave of Blood crashing onto my enemies.
2. Red helmets as the normal. I think Voss really shoved me with whole 80's GW comment. I'm definitely not doing green base trims either . Sanguinary Guard may get Gold, but Otherwise I think Red with no veteran markings on helmets.
3. Black Trims and Aquilas as a silent reminder to all the battle brothers that the Black Rage has endured and is affecting the Death Company.


Oh and Damn the Lore , I want a Tycho Primarisized. I may have to find another Grecko-Roman hero to make as a Primaris for my own army to take our fallen brothers place. GW for killing him off. It was bad enough that they put him in a dreadnought close to the end.

Used my store credit to pick up 2 boxes of Death Company Intercessors. Assembled one box of them as regular intercessors.

You can see the difference between one coat and the two coats on the assault Primaris. The extra parts will get added to the extra assault intercessors from the second Indomitus box I picked up.

Gave them a zenith also highlight spray with black and white then a coating of Morghast bone.

Still need to drill out barrels and highlight the blacks.


Also the Bladeguard Test paint.

I like one coat better but keep a pin in two coats of red, I feel like there's some way to use that.

Definitely making some nice progress there!

I like the deeper red that comes with the second coat. It should also make highlights easier to do.

I think I prefer the result from one coat. Although it would run the risk any highlighting being hard to see or would have the effect of changing the color to be even lighter.

The darker is really appealing to me, especially close up, harder to notice the flaws . I tried giving them all a wash of Carroburg Crimson.

Hobby ADHD is kicking my butt right now. That and the final few weeks push to get the church reopened for Easter, the twins have their 16th birthday on Thursday and our 20 anniversary is coming up in a couple weeks followed by my oldest daughters 18th Bday. I hate spring .

I work through them fast because I have never finished one .

Anyway...next projects.
I have never been a fan of the Sanquinor Sculpt, so off to kitbash.

Made mostly from a Sigmarine Prosecutor and bits from a spare Bladeguard Sgt and some bits off a blood angel bits sprue. I’m not sold on the sword yet, more bits diving is needed eventually.

Also did some work on the Blood Angels ride. I need to find some parts that were used for an old silly project.


Also been kitbashing assault Primaris marines and blood angel death company intercessors


I realize that I will probably never play the current edition of 40K because the rules make my head hurt. At this point I am just assembling models the way I like them and will find people eventually to play the game as a beer and pretzel game instead. Like the good old days .

The printer has been down for about a week, I haven’t made time to fix it, I might mess around a bit later tonight.

There's always Grimdark Future, one page rules that gets the feel of 40k "good enough". I'm committed to playing proper 40k at least once, but it's my fallback strategy.

Conversions look good. Eager to do some of my own soon.

I really liked your Militarum Green test on the Stormcast, might use that color combo in the future myself. That was also over the bone base color?
And I really like the red you settled on for the marines, really pops!

Oh I’ll probably try it after seeing a few games. My dyslexia is just messing with me right now (lots of stress lately) and trying to read and make sense of the rules is too much. So many small rules and their interactions, I just need to chill and see it in action to make sense of it all.

No the Militarum green was on the same system as the Black Templar I did. Coral black base, drybrush with Dawnstone and (longbeard if I had it) then the Militarum green. You could try using drybrushes of burgling green and underhive ash instead, though I might have used them over the Militarum green as final edge highlights . Sorry it was a test and I am notorious for not taking notes.

Thanks, I’ve seen some others done similar and the sigmarines fit size wise better with the Primaris marines too.

Threw some paint.


Not sure about the comets on the wings, they needed to be a different color than the rest of the gold, but I didn’t want to do red. I swapped out the sword as well as it I started sleeker than the last one. Also chopped up a jet pack to bulk out the wings.

I’m undecided on the color of the sword. I tried a bright yellow, but that looked bad with all the gold. Also I’m not a fan of OSL eyes, but I’m feeling the need to draw attention there as well.

Your Sanguinor looks great, I've been tempted by some of those flying sigmarines for my own minis but they suit Blood Angels waaaay more.

+1 for blue, it'll compliment the red and gold nicely and you could carry it over to the sword as well.

Hmmmmm...
*starts comparing costs of slapping jetpacks on other Stormcast to be Sanguinal Guard*

$60 for 5 Guard, or $74 for 10 random Stormcast or $40-60 for 6 ETB Stormcast. Depending on the costs of the other bits, that could not only be a cooler conversion, but perhaps even a cheaper one.

Food for thought, thanks for the inspo!

I tend not to read rulebooks for rules as my brain doesn't work that way. Youtube videos, or playing with friends who *do* read the rulebooks are a godsend as I can only really learn through doing or seeing something done. Probably one of the reasons I didn't get on with Gloomhaven to be honest

Strangely, I can write rules forever, but reading rules I cannot. I read the 2nd ed rules and have skimmed over each new edition since. Incrementally, nothing has really changed. Fundamentally, the whole game is different now.

Sorry for radio silence. Too much going on. Twins had their 16th BDay and we celebrated at my moms house now that she has gotten her vaccine. The next day she was taken to the hospital with lots of pain and vomiting, gall bladder infected again, she’s stable now, but no surgery till infection is settled. Took day off from my hospital work to try and get stuff at the church taken care of, reopening the sactuary after 1 year of being out of it due to Covid and the lightning/fire.

Been frustrated with my Ender3 for a few weeks now, it keeps clogging, then today while cleaning it and getting more pissed off it dawns on me that it has to be a bad roll or length of filament . Changed the roll and so far everything is running smoothly. Sometimes I overlook the obvious, this is the first roll out of 15 rolls of my ESun filament to give me any troubles.

I have seriously considered taking a much overdue vacation from DakkaDakka. It’s not that there is anything wrong, just I keep feeling a pressure to visit every day and either post or respond, and it’s past the burn out point. I’ve looked back at some posts I’ve made recently and just don’t see the heart in it, so I think I need to take a break and refresh everything. That and seventh try to get a blood angel paint style to my liking hasn’t helped .

Back soonish.....I hope, but need the breather. Thanks chums for understanding.
