So at WargamesCon I saw Duke’s Blood Angels and they have some absolutely bad ass free hand work. I’ve done some before, but I have always been pretty conservative. So he inspired to push a little more at it.
I picked a nice symbol from the Blood Angel Codex (I think Moriars banner) and added a little Lamenters flavor in the form of the bleeding heart. My first step was to draw the design in pencil. Obviously I filled in the blank space with checkers.
In my final stage I used Bubonic Brown as a shade and cleaned up all the checkers with Skull white.
All in all, extremely simple, done in under an hour, and looks great on the battlefield, especially when you have a lot of it…
