HH Blood Angels Tactical Squads For WH30k

I’ve been bitten by the 30k bug since the release of the Betrayal at Calth box set. I’ve wanted to do a Horus Heresy army for years but found the FW prices & shipping to be a barrier to entry. The models provided in the set are excellent and are perfect for a conversion junky such as myself. GW did a nice job of keeping the models simple and well designed. They mesh perfectly with the FW resins as well as the GW 40k marines and have a refreshing lack of random adornment (Purity Seals… blech).

5 Flamer Tactical Support Marines
My first group of Astartes for this project is a 15 man block of Tactical marines in a mix of Mk 3 and Mk 4 armor, a similar 10 man block, and Plasma-gun and flamer wielding Tactical Support squads.

2 Plasma Support Marines. I need to finish up the commander’s pointing hand.

After I complete these guys I am going to hack up the Contemptor Dreadnought for some re-posing! Stay tuned.
