Blood Angels Vehicles

The drop pod is the beginning of a new style for my blood angles, but I think it does fit in. I plan to us an airbrush on my land raider, so it will look vastly different than the vehicles painted here using the huge GW drybrush. It is satisfying seeing the whole gang of vehicles together. I have one more rhino and two land raiders, so we'll have to see how my style progresses.

I put in one shot of a finished devastator sergeant. I've had him partially completed in the miniature case for about a year now. I was all about speed when I started my BA, so all kinds of mold lines. I can't wait to get a photo of the whole army together.

So, who in the DC area wants to do a little gaming?


  1. Awesome, another Blood Angels blog! I really like the look of those veichles, how do you paint them?

  2. Thanks Gavin! The recipe is long but pretty easy. I let dry brushing handle the extreme highlighting so a steady hand is not necessary.

    1) Base black
    2) Dry brush mechandrite foundation red
    3) Add some blood red to mech and dry brush again
    4) Dry brush foundation orange to hit the edges.
    5) Wash with Baal red twice (one wash is probably enough)
    6) Dry brush deheneb stone on the tracks and lower portions.

  3. WOW! Those are brilliant. Nice job, seriously. :)

  4. Aah, I love these. If you don't mind, I'll steal the recepie for my Space Hulk termies. How heavy on the drybrushing do you go on regular marines?
