+ inload: Blood Angels for the Alien Wars +

+ Blood Angels reinforcements inbound +

+ A quick scale shot of the belligerents of the Arcturus campaign: Deocritic Guardsman, Astartes, greenskin (dominant ork designate), greenskin (slave caste). +

+ I'd dug out the Blood Angel as reference for painting the others in his squad, and thought I'd pop him up with some other figures. Thrugg Bullneck here is a Nob, which goes to show quite how tall the Primaris models are. +

+ The other half of 'The Wards of Furiel under Lord Dahavauron, Prince of the Erelim; 3rd Strateia of the Host of the Angels of the Blood' +

(or Squad Raphael, Third Company to their friends)

+ As mentioned, I've been painting. Minor update, really, but might be of interest. +

+ There's also a couple of loose Devastators (below) alongside Brother Engel. I'm looking forward to tackling the blue helms. How will I get them to fit the Blanchian palette? Might have to take some inspiration from Anders Zorn, an artist who used a very limited palette to great effect [+noosphericexloadlink embedded+]. +


  1. Looking forward to seeing more on this series.

    1. I've set up a landing page for the Alien Wars (https://apologentsia.blogspot.co.uk/p/alien-wars.html) if you'd like to get involved :)

  2. Love the comparison shot at the top! Such an enjoyable little potpourri of miniatures! :)

    When it comes to creating suitably Blanchian Blood Angels, you can always default back to squiggly black flames and yellow and black hazard stripes, if all else fails ;) Seriously, though: IIRC, the 2nd edition cover actually had the squiggly flames on blue Devastator helmets...?!

    1. Cheers! Yeah, I'm currently in two minds abut the freehand on the Blood Angels. On the one hand, it's not really obvious in the army I'm emulating; on the other it's a fantastic look. I'm tempted to save them for veterans or similar. What do you reckon?
