I decided with the Blood Angels due to the fact that I would like to own a huge army of them. So after completing this challenge, I will have a formidable force of the Blood Angels.

Some of you have seen me work on these guys over the past few weeks. But last Sunday the painting really took off. I kinda forgot to take the early pictures mainly because I was quite engrossed working on them and I wanted to get them done ASAP since I'm building my Dark Eldar as well.

I'm gonna wait for the oil paint to dry up properly before I begin painting. I was actually cleaning up the surface from the oil paint with my bare fingers before taking these pictures. I don't own a camera, so I'm just using my phone for these.

Yup, those oil washes are a miracle. I'm probably gonna speed up the drying process so I can varnish them and then paint the details already.

After finally recovering yesterday. I'm back full force into the Throwdown.

Problem is, there is no way I can finish the 10 MkIV dudes I've assembled. I did them last week over the time when I was sick and funny enough, my hands were not very steady to work with them, took me 5 days to complete their assembly!

So I thought to myself, I'm not gonna try and rush them up to sub-par quality within this short period of time, so I'll be working for the future Throwdowns instead.

Yesterday I started work on my Relic Contemptor Dreadnought. I've spent quite a lot of time to figure out how I can magnetize the arms for future weapon options.

So once the basing is done, I'll be painting it immediately since Chinese New Year is coming and we all know how busy that week can be to some of us.

Janice got a new camera, so I was giving it a spin by taking some pictures of my completed Contemptor Dreadnought. After taking the pictures, I realized that I forgot and missed out some details, also, I haven't done the weathering yet, it looks too pristine! I'll get the little details done in a bit.

Nicely done bro. The metal on your legs looks brighter from the other parts. What color did you use for metals parts?

Well done again Smile. The next throwdown is gonna be exciting!!

Nicely done! I've got my Contemptor ready for paint after carefully cutting & scraping the Imperial eagle off of the chest and replacing it with a brass Eye of Horus. I will be joining the ranks of painted Contemptors within the next two or three days! Smile

Yes Doc, we can have our game in March.

Khairul, the colours are Leadbelcher, wash with black, then drybrushed with Runefang Steel. Actually they're all the same for all the metal parts, maybe it's the reflection of the light that's making it brighter.

Jeff, can't wait to see your Contemptor too. I told Khairul last weekend that if the 3 of us are done with our Contemptors, they'll look like the colours of a traffic light!

Oh yeah Dann, if you look into his fist, there's a Heavy Flamer there. Lol. I wanted the pose to look as if he's going for the flame, but it's quite impossible to straighten out the arm since the elbow is fixed to be like that.
