Shadow Hawks reinforcements

With the release of Codex:Blood Angels, I finally have lots of new choices to add to my Shadow Hawk chapter. There are many things that I want to paint for my army and here are the first new additions.

First up we have the Librarian Furioso Dreadnought. I made this from the Venerable Dreadnought kit along with parts from the Ironclad, plasticard, Ravenwing sprue, and more. I have to give credit to GrimTeef from Dakka Dakka for many of the ideas!

I knew that the Sanguinary Guard (Shadow Guard in my chapter) would be a great addition to my army. The wings would look great in a chapter that uses bird imagery so I wanted to test paint a model to see how it looked in my chapter's color scheme. I am pleased with the final result.

When I first used the Blood Angel rules for my army (from the PDF army list) I had a small unit of Death Company that I used my robed veterans as. Now that the Death Company has a much bigger role in the army, I knew I wanted to redo the look and style of the Death Company. I am going to use the robed models as an Honor Guard in the new version of the army. Here is the new color scheme and design for the Shadow Hawk Death Company.

There you have the test models and some new additions to the army. Next up is finishing the full 5 man squad for the Sanguinary Guard and a Baal Predator. Until next time.


  1. Thats not a knife.... THIS is a knife! lolol, the ?sword? on that dread is huge, i love it. Wich kit is that from or did you make it? I like the color scheme youve chosen. Always nice to see something a bit different.

  2. Really great stuff there. I love the look of the Shadow Guard mini you've done, the red and black work perfectly together. Great work!

  3. Thanks for the comments. The blade on the force weapon is made from plasticard. The rest of the part is the chainfist bit from the Ironclad and I shaved off the chainsword part.

  4. Great stuff Jeff, I have to say I love the rich blood red comming out over the dark colors. It makes a very pleasing tone that really draws you too the army itself. Cheers on the conversions and solid work.

  5. Amazing job on the wings. Simple, yet rich and vibrant.

    Keep up the good work!
