I always prefer it when Blood Angels aren't a color that makes my eyes bleed.

Those Chaos insurgents must have had some real connections to a Traitor Legion or similar to have bolt-weapons,... too bad bolt-weapons are not enough to stop the blood angels.

goshdamn, such epicness. 8D Gotta say, even though I play Tau, my brother in law taught me, and my sister a bit, how to play 40,000 with his Blood Angels, and so I will always have a sort of bond with them. :3

looks awesome what program did you use and if you could help do you know of any tutorials out their where i could learn i try using photoshop but how do you color over the shading and make it come thru.

still a great job

I use Photoshop CS3 Extended. To make the shading come through and preserve the line art I use a fairly low opacity brush, around 25% opacity, and usually that's still too much so I use a 50% eraser on everything that's colored, as I like to layer in different tones of the same color.

As for coloring tutorials, there are many all over the web, I recommend watching tutorials from different artists so you can get different takes on how to color and eventually find the way that works best for you.

Here is one tutorial, the guy is extremely good at pretty much everything. [link]
From there you can check out other tutorials.
