My Blood Angels Army

So here it is! This entire force is a 1000 points (minus the Commander, Opiewan is adding a few extras on him for me) and was painted up in a week and a half. Are the minis some great stinking paint job? No, but they don't suck either. I don't have the patience or time to become some hot shot pro painter. I keep my aims well within my abilities and shot for a force that just looks good on the tabletop.

Every single miniature was done using The Army Painter and that is the reason I was able to get them done so quickly. By using their Red primer and Strong Tone dip I was able to crank out a force fast and get back to the real reason I got into 40k in the first place...

To play the friggin game

Well there you have it, my Blood Angels army. I'll post the Captain when Opiewan is done making him look cooler. Also I'll get up my actual list for you all to pick apart. Anyway I hope you enjoyed it and thanks for looking. As always constructive (and destructive:) criticism is always welcome.

FOR THE EMPEROR!!!

The close up shots really show how nice the shading looks, especially on the termies.

Nice job. I especially like your terminators.

These guys look really nice, especially for being painted up quickly. Grab a bottle of Micro Sol, it's only three bucks and will work WONDERS on those shoulder decals. I recently found it and will never look back.
