Here's another miniature I was really excited to paint, the limited edition Blood Angel from Games Day 2012. I thought about painting him to match the official scheme from the cover of 2nd Edition, but then he really wouldn't fit into the rest of my army. However, his knee pad identifies him as the Sergeant of either the first or second squad, and I'm just starting to paint a new version of my Company's Second Squad. Perfect fit for him.

This fellow is a break from my stated goal of painting up all of my old models. He was a birthday present, and a great break from the batches of infantry that I was painting. He is also another step on my path to painting up all of the Blood Angels named characters.

I make a big deal about magnetizing the arms on a lot of my models. It saves you money and gives you options, and its a great thing to do. However, as I've been playing my Blood Angels more, I discovered that I'd only done half the work. My Sergeants all have magnetized arms, but I didn't have a collection of arms to swap out. I only really painted one set of arms as I painted each model, so my options are very lacking. In particular, I was really missing bolt pistols and chainswords, the basic armaments that are really useful to have but weren't exciting to paint.
