Just a quick data burst.
Over at Bolter and Chainsword, I decided to sign up to participate in the "From Rage to Salvation 2015" painting event. I've vowed to paint up a Furioso Dreadnought and a unit of 10 Death Company models. I really needed the extra motivation! The Furioso allows me to try some of the other BA detachments/formations for which its a required choice.
You can find out more here on the painting challenge:
I have the Furioso now built - with the arms all set, I'll be able to field it as either a Furioso with dual fists, MM, and HF, magnagrapples, or a Furioso with fragcannon, fist, heavy flammer and magnagrapples.
The Death Company will be a squad of the original, 10, metal models from over 18 years ago - it was one of the first boxes of 40K stuff I'd bought, and they were disassembled and de-painted about 3 years ago, after never having been used. I'll be replacing all of their original arms and such with updated blood angel death company bits, and will keep them on foot. I might also have somewhere a red rhino to repaint to be their ride when they are not being airlifted.
I hope to have a bunch of in-progress pix here soon - it should be pretty good! Overall, I have until November 30th to get them all finished! Look for them on a table top soon!
