As discussed in my previous blog post, I am currently painting up additional pieces to my existing Blood Angels force to have something more suitable for 40K 7th Edition. For starters I painted my two new HQ models, the Librarian and the Techmarine. A Librarian with a Jump Pack simply is a must for any Blood Angels force and was hence long overdue; Techmarines are substantial for any chapter's success and get way too little play time from my point of view, so there I am trying to change that.
|I am sort of proud here how the freehand lettering and the blood drops turned out in contrast to the blue armor.|
|I am particularly proud how I was able to work the light blue into his wings; something I wanted to do for a long time. Blood Angels need to look angelic into their very feather tips from my point of view.|
|This here is the picture of shame. I took the shoulder armor with a skull from the Death Company box and added horns with green stuff to make him a proper Librarian. Well, you see how it turned out.|
|I added armor with a grail to his left shoulder to give him some chapter iconography, but I didn't wanna overdo it because after all he is a disciple from Mars.|
|I also gave him the white Bolter that is special for my Blood Angels 2nd Company, but decided to leave his Boltpistol black because he probably got it before he went to Mars, so it's chapter adherent in its coloring.|
