Blood for the ... Sanguinius?

So, in the most likely chance there will be a 7th edition codex for the Blood Angels at some point in the future (who knows when?), I got some dedicated Blood Angels models and have made progress in painting up a regular Tactical Squad in Blood Angels colours.

First, here we have some initial work on doing Death company models with jump packs.

Secondly, here is a mostly done Tactical Squad (2nd company, squad 1)

The red colour started off through priming with black, followed by a base coat of Khorne red, washing with Coelia Greenshade, then drybrushing with Mephiston red.

3rd: Some Necron Immortals (Less likely to get wiped out by evil heavy bolter fire, especially when an Imperial Fist devastator squad has 4 heavy bolters in the unit).

Other projects that will be up and running will be to finish off more Ogre Kingdom models (preferably before 9th edition Warhammer comes out, whenever that will …
