With the recent release of the new Blood Angels I'm sure there are many people in the world who has been bitten by the latest army craze. Well, besides the fact that they seem quite overpowered with all their new shiny rules. Who can deny that they are just about the most beautiful models GW has put out till date! The moment I saw the pics of the new minis I was sold!
My first ever 40k army was the Blood Angels. I started them almost 10 years ago when I could clearly remember 3rd edition 40k being released. I have since amassed quite a huge BA army. (will try to get some pics up) But sadly I have not played much with them. Ever since I started my Guard army after the BA they pretty much came to a standstill. I still have so many BA unpainted. They have been primed and ready for more than 8 years!
Well.... fast forward to 2010. Where the BA are the latest shiny plastic soldiers. And here I am, rekindling the bloody flame of Sanguinius that attracted me to the world of 40k in the first place. I am therefore building a new BA army. Totally keeping in line with the awesome new Descent of Angels rule. (well it may not be a list that will actually WIN me any games, but who cares? It's freakin' awesome!)
It shall be simple. Nothing that can't fly will not be included. That means NO tanks. All my models shall have jump packs. And models who can't (dreadnoughts) shall have drop pods. I have already ordered a couple of dreadnoughts from forgeworld. And I shall also get pics of the NEW BA army up when all my new models have arrived!
In the meantime. Here are the 3 test models I have painted for my new BA!
