I started Blood Angels about a year ago, as the Cold Steel Mercs did Blood Angels for the Adepticon 2011 Team Tournament. Our army was based on the Hives of Hollonan fluff from the Blood Angels codex- Mephiston and some of the 3rd company go to the hive world of Hollonan to deal with some Genestealer cultists, then find out a whole Tyranid invasion is inbound and lead a defense, calling on some more Blood Angels and Angels Vermillion for support, and the Hollonan PDF. Our Adepticon forces were three BA
and one IG
, and the bases and boards decorated with lots of live and dead bugs from Hive Fleet Kraken.
After Adepticon I spent the rest of the year collecting the kits to build a full army, and playing some in my local league, but not painting at all. Finally I kicked myself in the butt and determined I would build & paint a 1750 army for the Conflict GT
in January. My procrastination continued, with all the work being done within the week and a half prior to the GT
. My force for Adepticon consisted of a Librarian, Sang Priest, 5 assault terminators in a Land Raider Redeemer, and 5 assault marines in a Phobos LR
, and amusingly only the Librarian, Priest, and AMs were used in my Conflict list.
You can find my army list and summaries of my games & results in my army list thread
. And more about The Conflict GT
in the thread over in the Tournament Forum
Anyway, that's enough rambling. Just a little background to explain a bit about the theme and basing, and why these models are as unfinished as they are.
