Blood Angels Command...

I finally got around to finishing the Sanguinary Guard, making them a full 10-man unit, and with the leftover gold I decided to paint up a Blood Angels Command Squad. The Librarian showed up just for the photo.

I was a bit lazy with the gold this time around and skipped most of the previous shading and highlighting in favor of a more simple, zenithal highlighting approach using the airbrush. .

Some base-coating here...

And the final pictures; hopefully I'll have more photos from the battlefield soon!

Now on to the Red ones...

  2. The gold looks great, which of your methods did you use to achieve that look?

    1. Hey thanks, was more or less my previous (vallejo model colour method 3) recipe. I got lazy this time though and relied on the airbrush for the xenithal highlights, it worked fine.
      base - vmc brass + brown
      xenith hl 1 - vmc gold
      xenith hl 2 - vmc gold + tiny bit of vmc silver

      Then I just did a wash with very thinned p3-umbral umber.
