Hulk Buster & Co. – Blood Angels Death Company

We received a great photo from one person that we collaborated with on an interesting project – a small force of Blood Angels Death Company terminators accompanied by a Dreadnought, the Hulk Buster.

Most of the miniatures were painted by Irkuck, back in the time when he still had time for painting miniatures and was a member of our group, the dreadnought’s banner was painted by Thor, and the last models of the army were painted by Benathai. Oh, he hasn’t presented them yet? We’ll fix this little omission really soon. 🙂

Blood Angels Contemptor Dreadnought

I think this Blood Angels Contemptor Dreadnought model never made it to my gallery, which is a shame. I painted it in mid-2014, and it’s been posted to the internet, but because of the technical problems with our website it was never published here.

Well, now it is! 🙂

Some background notes for my Contemptor dreadnought:

The concept for this paintjob was based on Blood Angels background. According to it some Blood Angels go into a kind of frenzy, called „red thirst„. I wanted to represent this state of mind with my painting, show the blood covering the world, in which everything can be a potential enemy and a sufficient reason to kill them. I tried to capture the madness and rage in this miniature. I hope it makes the concept easier to understand. 🙂

If you want to see some WIP shots of this model, feel free to check them out: Here‚s the one in which I collected some images to use as reference and inspiration. This one presents earlier stages of painting, without the gore and many freehand-painted details, as well as the base photographed separately. Finally this post shows some close-ups of freehand details that I applied later, but still before adding the blood.

Enjoy. 🙂
