Bad Ass 1250 Point Pure Blood Angels

Rather than working on my army for the escalation tourny I've been assembling a pure Blood Angels list.  Got carried away with wanting to start painting a new project fresh.  Really looking forward to building and painting the above army.  I need to bling up the pods and raider with some BA icons then time to spray.  Going with another army painter primer.  Learning my lessons from Iyanden and my Lizardmen, I will prime white then apply a light coat of army painter dragon red.

After red prime is down I'll switch to GW paints.  The army list is as follows:

Terminator Librarian - Level 2, Combi- Melta

5 Thunder Hammer Terminators - Banner, Land Raider Crusader, Multi-Melta
Furioso - Drop Pod, Frag Cannon

2 x 10 Tac Marines - Drop Pod, Melta-Gun, Combi-Melta, Heavy Flamer

It's going to be a bad ass looking army on the table top!  The new Eldar codex really sucked the joy out of my Iyanden army.  Glad I've rediscovered the Blood Angels.  Full steam ahead.

Archangels 1rst Company

While working on my flesh tearers I caught the 40k bug.  I want to build a proper blood angel detachment to go along with my tearers.  Loving new librarian and new blood angel terminator skulpts.  Just picked up a furioso dread to go along with my termies.  Nice 500 point package. 

Terminator Librarian -melta gun, auspex

5 Assault Terminators - banner, thunder hammers.
Furioso Dred - pod, frag cannons

Total Points: 500

Plan to plug the above detachment into my existing 650 point army of flesh tearers.  I admit I've really come around to all of these detachments.  I'm having fun planning them out.  These plug and play elements all with there special rules are fun to mull around.  Also makes for easier management of projects. 

Another big reason I want to do blood angels proper is that I had front line gaming paint up most of flesh tearer army.  I love the paint job.  But rather than try and recreate it I want to start with something fresh.

650 Flesh Tearers Rebased

Plugging away.  Rebased my old marines to the new standard.  Looking good I must say.  It was touch and go with a couple of them and some toes were lost to the warp.  Not sure how I want to base them.  Likely will use the GW material.  Before that I'm going to go through the army systematically touching them up.  Will start with assault squad as they need the most work.
