Vanguard Veterans

I picked up where I left off about 18 months back: painting a squad of Vanguard Veterans. When I started painting them, they were Veteran Assault Squads under the previous codex. Now they are Vanguard Veterans under the current codex.

I realize that the 'new' Blood Angels Codex is probably not 'new' to anyone else. As I just purchased it last week, it is new to me. My mind is filled with all sorts of ideas about new builds for my Angels Sanguine army.

Nevertheless, I fully expect to have this squad of veterans completed in another couple of days. I have posted a picture here of the test model I painted before my break from the hobby. I will post pictures of the completed squad as I finish.

You no longer doing blood angels? My brother is doing ultramarines so I've been thinking about marine tactics. I like the vanguards. If you play any games lemme know how they turn out.

Yea, I am still doing Blood Angels. The Blood Angels Codex has Vanguard Veterans in the Fast Attack section. They have a special rule called Heroic Intervention which allows them to Assault in the same turn that they Deep Strike if wearing Jump Packs. It is pretty cool.

I updated the post to reflect the fact that I am talking about the Blood Angels Codex.
