New project here, this time it’s back to Blood Angels!
I painted a test miniature, the customer approved enthusiastically, all good. Now I’m off to do fhe first few units: Nine more Sternguard, five Vanguard and five Sanguinary Guard.
You know, it’s always fun going back to Space Marines. Not one of them power armour enthusiasts who won’t paint anything that isn’t a Space Marine myself, but there is something about the guys. Looking forward to painting the Sanguinary Guard especially.
In other news: I attended VIVAT (the Austrian event for historical wargaming) again. You can find my report of the show here. I also reviewed the Plastic Soldier Comany’s 15mm IS-2 tank kit. Hope you like the articles!
Right, time to get back to painting GW things then. See you later!
Thanks, Anon! I tend to use highlights appropriate to the model, usually a peachy-coloured mix with ratios of white, yellow and red dending on my mood and what I want the model to look like. Pure orange or pink highlights rarely work well.
Ah these are beautiful indeed. Let's hope the prospective client loves 'em too.
Thanks for the comment, Isiah. Yup, he was rather enthusiastic about the test miniature. In the end the green meltagun tip was changed to corroded/burnt metal. The rest of the first batch of Blood Angels will pop up here on ToP and the Battle Brush Studios website shortly!

Thanks a lot, we appreciate any help to continue and grow Tale of Painters 🙂
I agree with your client – looks really good 🙂 Can you tell me what colour do you use for armour highlights? I like it more than the usual orange highlight.
