Angels of Death & Balin
It's been a horrible rainy day in Bedfordshire today which meant I couldn't get out and do what I was meant to be doing, on the plus side it's been a constructive day on the painting side as a consequence.
First off we have these 'Angels of Death' which will count as Vanguard veterans for my space marine army. They are of course basically blood angel sanguinary guard, but In a different paint scheme. I've been promising myself a unit of these ever since they came out, really fantastic models, especially the death masks, but all of it to be honest. A real design triumph in my book and I'm not going to let something as silly as them being the wrong chapter of marines stop me adding them to my army.
Secondly we have this Balin model for Lord of the Rings. I've been rereading the Hobbit over the last few days and it gave me the hankering to paint a few lord of the rings figs again. I had a rumage around and came up with the Balin figure, which is appropriate as of course he appears more in the Hobbit anyway. I'm really looking forward to the new movie now and hope GW come up with a good value boxed game for me too buy.
