Project Description

SONS OF SANGUINIUS

Although my grimdark interests are predominantly about events during the Horus Heresy, I haven’t entirely abandoned Warhammer 40,000. I’ve assembled and painted a variety of Imperial and Xenos collections over the past two decades, the majority of which I have retired or given away. With the release of 8th edition however I did make the Blood Angels my guilty 40K secret. That and of course it was an excuse to paint some of the new Primaris kits.

PALETTE

Although these are for 40K, I leaned more towards a IVth legion palette of a deeper red accented by a more weathered gold. I also included a large amount of iconography from the Forgeworld legion decal sheet to reinforce their heritage. Similar to my other forces I also included weathering pigments more extensively in the armour and basing, but held back for the infantry as I did want to maintain some contrast between my heresy and 40k collections, each having their own distinctive aesthetic.
