    My chapter isnt Blood Angles tho, but they are red.

    I did my eyes blue, first Mordian blue with a touch up of Ice Blue.. looking good.

    The seals was, first astronomican grey, then bleached bone with black "paper".. it will have grey/white scribings

    Different shades of red, with highlights and shadowing.

    I've always really liked Ice blue eyes on Blood Angels red, it suits them really well. Amethyst purple is a cool colour for them, too.

    Green purity seals are a personal favourite over red armour. Black sounds really interesting, never seen that done before.

    I don't have Blood Angels, but my marine's face plate is a bright red orange. I painted the eyes a gold. Basically, I first painted the eye lens in brazen brass. Then, from the inner edge to the center of each lens, I painted it with shining gold. When the layers were dry, I worked in a small dab of water-down brown ink. This toned down the brightness of the gold, and gave some depth.

    As for the purity seals, you can make them any color you wish. I would just keep the bone color, of the parchment.
