If you?re looking for inspiration for your new Blood Angel collection you don?t have to go far. Steve has been lavishing lots of time and attention on his Blood Angels of late and we wanted to show you a couple of tanks (ooooh! I love tanks! ? Ed) he has just finished.

Steve – Too many times in the past I have come up with a colour scheme that I like, only to forget it several months down the line. So, when I decided to repaint my Blood Angels I chose to follow the Sons of Sanguinius painting guide so that i’ll always have a record of how each part was done (without having to take extensive notes myself). I didn’t use all steps for all areas, but made sure to remind myself by using post-it notes (other sticky paper squares are available ? Ed) to make amendments as I went.
In my mind, the Blood Angels are the connoisseurs of the Space Marines, appreciating art in all it’s forms, from sculpture and painting to warfare and strategems. As such I wanted to show my army as having freshly arrived at a battle with their armour and vehicles shining as if on a parade ground. The strong edge highlights give me that feel along with the crispness of detail that the transfers I used provide. For the transfers I wanted them to seem part of the model, rather than stuck on as can sometimes be the case. To do this I first applied ‘Ardcoat to the area, placed the transfer and when it was finished applied a couple of thin coats of Lahmian Medium to finish. This method allows the transfer to stay where I want it, but also removes the shininess that can make a transfer stand out like a sore thumb.
