Eldar additions again

So, I have got a small unit of Eldar Wraithguard and I have several Warlocks already, which means that I can have a unit with a Warlock to avoid the 1 in 6 chance of them shutting down. I will be painting them in Biel-Tan colours (Orkhide shade base, then Emerald Green). I'm currently uncertain about whether or not to keep them on the original 25mm bases or put them onto 40mm bases, as if they are the Eldar equivalent of Terminators.
I should have the models painted up in time for a battle against Space Marines on Sunday.
Picture to follow later.

Sanguinary Guard

Sanguinary Guard models built, painted and given the works!

Death Company got their debut and a bit of optimisation will be needed before their next outing. What I'll do is get rid of 3 power fists and replace them with 3 power weapons and bolt pistols. This is almost finished now.

Next, my Daemon Prince has been re-painted, going from black to blue armour, with the mark of Tzeentch. This will be just in time for my 2nd CSM battle for the small Chaos Carnage tournament.

And then there were two!

So, I've now build the 2nd Death Company Dreadnought, and can use 2 of them in a big enough battle, as I have 12 Death Company troops.
It's mostly metal, apart from the all-plastic chainfist arm. I will be looking forwards to playing my Space Marines in a 3,000 + point battle.

Space Marines update

Well, I re-did my Captain on a jump pack, using most of a death company model and equipped him with a lightning claw and melta pistol. The armour was originally painted in Chainmail, followed by a Gryphonne Sepia wash for the gold colouring. The end effect is as above.
The Death Company are almost at intended strength, as I have finished two more models and have two more left to do (with chainsword and hand flamer or infernus pistol).
Finally, I'll get to give my Space Marines a battle under the new Blood Angels codex this weekend.

Blood Angels successors finished for the time being!

So, I've finished organizing my Space Marines for the time being, until I've had my first few games. This organization was due to me getting the Blood Angels codex and my Marines being of a successor chapter, called the Blood Drinkers.
I've now got about 7,500 points of models and over 100 models in the Troops unit section. There are 3x 10-man Assault units with special weapons, still 6 Tactical squads with a couple of heavy weapon swaps, another Scout added and the Death Company now with 8 models.
The Devastator squads now have all heavy weapons the same - one unit has 4 lascannons and the other has 4 plasma cannons. The Rhino-based tanks are a bit more pricey and the Land Raiders are now Transport units.
I've also built up a new jump-pack captain, wearing gold armour, with a lightning claw and melta pistol.
For more details of the organization of my forces, go to Dr Porkov's armies.
So, how have the new Blood Angels been faring in 40k since getting the new codex?…
