Optimus Class Librarian Dreadnought

I'm working on this slowly as I want it to look better than my normal level.


Looking at that gap at the shoulder makes me want to take some more off to fit it closer to the hull.

Used the drakenhof nightshade wash on the lothern blue.

And more on the blue, dry brushed over that with altdorf blue.


Not a million miles off.

More Reinforcements For The Knights of Blood

On an aside this is my 998 post! 2 more and it's the big one, I'm into 4 digits, down side I'm nearly out of stuff to do.
Back on track, I started out the week by getting the Vanguard Veterans out and digging out 10 marines with bolt guns to add to the dev squads, and the last 10 marines for the 2nd Assault Squad.

I just re did the squad markings to match the other assault squads and painted the edges back black.


The 10 bolter marines to add to the dev squads.

And the 2nd Assault Squad.
What's next? Well buying the Black Crusade Supplement at some point and from there I can work out what formations I'm going to play.

First Assault Squad For The Knights of Blood


Started my first Assault Squad the other night.


Got the red and nuln oil wash on night 1.

Night 2 I dry brushed them with scarlet and picked out the helmet strip, eye lenses and squad markings with yellow, following the Blood Angel Codex.

And tonight I went back over the helmet with scarlet and did the shield and rather than a blood drop I put the squad number in blue on it.



And this guy is my favourite.

Vanguard Veterans

I've been working on a 5 man squad that I plan to run as Vanguard Veterans

These are all quite old pieces.

I painted parts that needed it black and then gave the red parts a base coat of Wazdakka

And then when that was dry they got a nuln oil wash.

Next night I dry brushed all of them with scarlet before working on a sword, I put a magnet in the hand and green stuffed a magnet to the sword.

Work got busy after that so I wasn't able to get any paint on it.
