Blood Angels - Tycho - On the Painting Table

I did this conversion/kitbash last year for the Miniature Conversion Contest. This year I finally got around to painting him up. I asked readers, in my previous post on Tycho, which armour set they liked more, the Death Company black armour or the gold Sanguinary Guard armour. One response from Snake88's blog said gold so decision made!

I started off with a nice base coat of Tin Bitz, then a dry brush coat of Shining Gold followed by a wash of devland mud in the recesses. The Shoulder pad and angel started off with a base coat of Scab Red, then a coat of Red Gore followed by a wash of Baal Red. The grey areas are Codex Grey. Tycho's combi weapon is Boltgun Metal and the Melta muzzle is Tin Bitz with a coat of Brazen Brass over the top.

Let me know what you think so far.



  1. Looking good so far Vitor. Can't wait to see the finished result!

  2. I really like the gold you have there. It's nice and warm but not over the top like it can be sometimes on models. Nice job so far.
