When I took an army shot of my Ultramarines lately, I also took the chance and photographed my Blood Angels, supported by a Knight Questoris from House Raven and a Culexus Assassin, as well. I painted this collection around 2015 and 2016 and I plan to expand it someday with more divImperial forces.
Here are a couple of my favourite models. You might notice the heavy use of Forge World Heresy era bits. As I already own a sizeable Ultramarines army, I wanted a different flavour for my Blood Angels. I imagine this army could date from around the aftermath of the Horus Heresy, where Contemptor Dreadnoughts and older armour marks were still very present.
You can find more pictures of my Blood Angels here.
The Knight was painted to match the shade of red on my Blood Angels, but I also made sure to add a couple of light bone areas, in case I ever get around to paint some Skitarii of Metallica, who wear coats in a light bone colour.
Last but not least, the Culexus Assasin. A pretty fun model to paint with a great menacing pose.
At the moment I’m pretty busy with all sorts of other projects, but I’d like to expand this collection to create a big “soup” of various Imperial forces. I could see Astra Militarum, an Inquisitor warband, and maybe even Sisters of Battle if the new plastic models are ready. I imagine it could shape up to represent the rag-tag remains of a long campaign.
