Angels of Blood
"For the Emperor and Sanguinius!" - War Cry of the Blood Angels
Here is some Warhammer 40,000 art I've managed to fit in between a few other things I'm painting at the moment. The insignia for the Blood Angels:
I've wanted to have a go at this insignia for a while now, I think what's stopped me is that there is little that you can do with something that is just black. Or so I thought. Then I got to thinking, add a few 'blood' gems on the wings, add a little blue to the wings as well and then finish off with a nice hint of some crimson red on the blood drop at the heart of the image - job done.
