When I sorted through all of the Blood Angel miniatures that I got from the Fallen Gamer’s estate sale, I quickly found that I had acquired all of the characters, minus Tycho.
And let’s be honest, you really need TWO versions of that guy.
The first one that I decided to get out of the way was good ol’ Mephiston. Being as Close Combat is apparently gonna be a thing in 8th edition, I have high hopes for this Sonofabitch.
Now, he’s probably going to be running around with the Death Company, but in case not, and also just because, I went ahead and painted up the Sternguard Veterans that I had sitting in the miniature case of holding.
I have these same guys painted up with my Crimson Fist army, but I kinda like the newbies better. But that’s more than likely just the ‘New Miniature Factor’ talking.
Overpriced, yes. Cool as shit looking, yes again. To be perfectly honest, I almost never, ever run Sternguard (or Vanguard) marines. But hey, I’ve got ’em, so I might as well paint ’em right?
Finally, here’s the next unit on the painting block, JUMP MARINES!
