Blood Angels standard bearers

Well, finally my standard bearers are done. The freehands are not at Golden Demon level, but they’re good enough to work as center pieces of my army.
Lord Dante’s Honor Guard Standard Bearer:

The angel holding the bloody cloth is supposed to make everyone remember thedeath of the Primarch Sanguinius and his sacrifice to bring down the evil traitor.
Blood Angels’ 2nd Company Standard Bearer:

The Grail is supposed to give the Blood Angels hope because although their Primarch is dead, they have still his blood running in their veins that enables them to embark for many great crusades still.
One can see a lot of Christian symbolism in all of this, but hey – why should Games Workshop reinvent the wheel when human history is full of powerful lore?
