Hey everyone,

No time like the present to retool an old army that Ive tried to get back into several times. So this log will be an ongoing record of the old models transitioning to a new paint scheme employing the tricks Ive learned in the last ten years as well as an addition of newer models that Ive had or acquired recently. I have everything from Scouts to Land Raiders and everything in between to redo. So, if you like the look and the scheme stick around and see whats new. Ill be trying to get a unit redone every two weeks. If you have any tips, either on painting or on actual game play for Blood Angels Id appreciate it. Ive been out of the game for a while and haven't played any 8th ed. Hopefully that will change once I start to fill out an army with this new scheme.

Anyway, Ill get on with it. I went through a couple test models looking for a look that I liked. Ill include one of those as well as the first set of Infiltrators that I started with. I picked up the Start Collecting Primaris box because it was such a good deal and I wanted the Eliminators anyway. We'll see if these guys manage to kick some scouts out and take on the infiltrating roll.

Wasnt very happy with this one, may have been the execution but it just didnt grab me.

>
Getting closer, I didnt mind the grain as its not going to see a table, just a test model.

Ok, here we go! Lets run with this and see where it takes us.

So, for now thats all that I have done. But there will be more of this squad when I wrap it up. Ill also try to get some videos out of the painting process to go along with all the images.

Until then, thanks for looking!

Managed to get these guys finished up. Pretty pleased with how the color scheme came out. Im sure that itll adjust a little bit as time goes on but its a great starting point.

Just got a video finished up for my Death Company Dreadnought.

Im still fairly new to the video editing side of the house. Any tips or tricks you guys have for that would be awesome.

Got the Razorback into the photobooth for some quick pics. Lots of prep work that I should have done to smooth out its rough Ebay edges. Sometimes preowned stuff is cheap for a reason I guess lol. Anyway, it looks amazing at three feet on a tabletop so Im happy with it. The turret is a 3d print, which I think came out pretty good. The original one it had was mangled worse than the rest of the model.

Very nice rescue on the ebay tank, love the freehand and weathering! And great work on those infiltrators, giving them silencers is great.

Love the tank, especially the lights effect. Your angels have a dirty and dark feel to them

Hey guys, thanks for stopping by and taking a look! This has been a really fun project so far and I'm looking forward to pressing forward with it. And on that note....

Im officially on the Mephiston hype train! Took long enough and I could put another dozen hours or so in. But, Im really happy with how it turned out. I reposed both arms and changed the angle that the head sits at, making it at least a little unique.

Andddd we have another set done. This time its some scout fodder. I loved them back in 5th ed, well see if I still love them.

Overall they are a very TT level squad but I really enjoyed how the camo cloaks came out on them.
Video is here https://youtu.be/UeXpn09uBOQ

Anyone else having a hard time getting the models they need during the shutdown? I ended up printing out a proxy Lemartes, which I did up as a color test (don't worry, Im not playing with it, I can hear you from here...) for my Death Company models. Hopefully Ill have the real deal soon after all the restrictions lift.

You can see it getting painted here if youre interested.

Wow, the backdrop is so realistic too. The shadows... Wow. Just wow. This is one of the best-painted tanks I've ever seen. You manage to make a PREDATOR look like a realistic tank!

See what's on my painting table Now painting: Myrmourn Banshees

Well I decided to try my hand at painting a marine in 30 minutes. I tried it three times in fact. Took about 35 to get to something that Id be happy to put on the tabletop.

Alright, finally got around to painting these Aggressors. I had been putting it off for a long time due to not enjoying this armor style. A little inspiration from Facebook photos gave me the extra motivation to get them done though.
