Looks great, though I nearly fell out of my chair. I dunno, to me it looks like he's trying to figure out what the hell is happening to his sword.

Instead of starting up a new Blood Angel dude, I instead opted to keep workong on some daemon stuff. Thats the bad news.. the good news though is that I did some painting.. woo hoo!

some test bases

Post  Administratum on Tue Mar 16, 2010 12:03 am

I have been messing around with the idea of a city where the slaughter was on such an epic scale that it was literally flooded with blood. My first 3 prototypes cutting out and sinking bases and then using tinted resin. I think i still have allot to learn, and comments, crits and advice welcome.

Im not very experienced with bases, but it looks pretty good cam. are you looking to get a still wet and flowing look or a dried look? they have the dried blood look currently. i think the wet blood everywhere would look pretty awesome, but i don't know how to achieve that effect. maybe that water effect stuff that you can buy.

ya the base's aren't done yet I think. But the paint job is kick ass. Are you trying to get a job at G.W. I don't want to battle this because I would spend to much bloody time looking at the paint job lol

That's nice stuff Paz. Why don't you walk through the red paint tech you used?

Cam, I like the bases. Nothing much more to add.

Cam= Interesting! I would suggest lowering the amount of red you add to the resin to a very fine amount. It would look cool tinted red, but see-throughable, to show off the skulls and such.

Scott=
1.I start with a 2:1:1 mix of scab red, bestial brown, and mechrite red, with a dab of snot green as a comp. color to bring down the vibrancy of the reds.
2. i wash the armor with a watered down 1:1 mix of badab black and Baal red washes.
3. using progressively lighter colors, I layer in dwarf flesh, until I get a layer that's about 1:1 base color and flesh
4. Add a drop of skull white to the flesh, and voila!

Thanks Scott

Yea, i agree that i added too much paint to the resin. The stuff i have is not ideal either. I looked at the package and it said since 1864... i mean tradition is good, but im guessing that resin has come a long way in the last 150 years. These were tests though, and there is allot that could be improved. Having the resin sloshed all over the base edges looks crappy, as well as on the concrete. Too much paint, and the way i cut the tops of the bases out looks pretty rough as well. Im not really sure if the idea is worth the effort i would have to put in to make it look truly pro. That and resin is damn expensive and a serious pain in the ass to work with. Think i might try some other ideas.

Cam= Yeah, you have to weigh the time required to make the bases and time spent on the figs.

More updates! I added some scratches and wear+tear to the armor, and some gold and such.

Thanks guys! I have really been experimenting with colors and weathering. Lotsa work to do, but making weathering more realistic is tough!

Nice stuff Paz. How about a walk through on the mini so far? Maybe how you came to your red and how you're doing the weathering?

I was gunna type out a long winded explanation, but I thought a visual might help. Heres how I did the armor and weathering.

argh! the screen cuts off the image! Heres a link

As to how I got the idea? Well,, I really didn't want to use orange to highlight, as that makes the armor really bright. Pink doesn't work either, too... pink. So I used a middle ground, beige. It has enough orange to be bright, like skin, but enough white to keep the tones cool, like skin as well

Hi Paz,

Any chance of posting a tutorial on your true scale conversions? I've seen a lot of them online but was curious what technique you were using. I've had a chance to see the new blood angles models over here (Yea, GW Stores have both samples and the codex and the next WD two weeks at least early to build hype, I'm spoiled). Anyway, from what I've read of the codex I'd suggest stocking up on dreadnoughts since you can have like 20 or 25 in an army list. I think one of them counts as a troop choice and another as an HQ. Anyway, the figures look great but as a player I'm also pissed that they aren't releasing any more space hulk figs. That seems really silly to me. Thoughts?

Also anyone tried incorporating vampire counts into this army (I've heard rumors that Space Wolves were wear-wolfs and Blood Angles were Vampires as a background theme thing....)

The vampire thing probably comes from the fact that they drink the blood of their primarch as part activating the genesead. They don't however seek out and drink the blood of their enemies. That's probably more an idea from someone wanting to make 40k into fantasy.

I was always under the impression that the Red Thirst was part of their flaw, and that it drove them to try and consume blood. But I must admit I have not read that much Blood Angels background, so I could have it wrong.

regan= the red thirst is a need to "spill" blood, not drink it, though I imagine that may be part of it. Think totally insane person who is in the grips of utter despair and rage, trying to get sweet revenge for his primarch, not vampire actively thirsting for blood. Only Mr. mephiston is rumored to be vampiric.

The flaw is said to be present from when horus struck down sanginius before the emperor was able to destroy him. It's said the anguish of that event is eternally imprinted on the BA through the connection through the primarch's blood. Every battle draws out a rememberance of that horrible event and sometimes it drives the marines mad with grief so they begin hallucinating that they are fighting that epic battle themselves.

at least that's how i remember it. been a while since i've read that particular story.

sanguines and rogel dorn the emporer and a bunch o custodes and sm telepoted onto hourses battle barge. saungines teleporter mist placed him in front of hours who killed him, in the ensuing battle nut he nicked off the armour at his neck and if sanguines had not done that hours would have killed the emporer.

Ben you gotta proof read, your spelling was aweful and tough to figure out.
the nick in the armour is a "some say" type of rumour. The emperor used his psychic might to defeat horus and Horus did destroy the emperor btw:

"The Emperor and Horus fought with a power that would have eviscerated any mortal man dozens of times over with each blow. The Emperor held back for much of the battle, remembering Horus as his beloved son and not wishing to believe that he had turned so utterly to Chaos. This allowed Horus to inflict crippling mortal wounds on the Emperor, since nothing short of the Emperor's full power would be sufficient to defeat him. At the critical point in the battle, a lone Adeptus Custode guard entered the room. Horus flayed him alive with but a look and in that instant the Emperor realized how far his favored son had fallen. The sacrifice of the Custodian bought the Emperor time to deliver a finishing blow to Horus. With iron resolve, he gathered his full strength and delivered a massive psychic blow that killed Horus almost instantly and obliterated his very soul. In his final moments, the powers of Chaos were driven from him and the Emperor sensed his favored son's return to sanity for a fraction of a second before he finally died."

The Emporer's not dead. He's on life support!
