    Better way to paint Blood Angels

    I been painting my Blood Angels by priming the model white, then a coat of blood red, ink the model in magenta ink, then doing the other details. Is there any other way thats easier?

    Do you mean easier or better? Your title says better your post says easier. I think that as far as easy is going you sound like you have a quick and easy method. If you want to get better results you could try some highlights. A very small amount of orange applied to the edges of the Blood angels armout will bring out the shapes of your Marines. You could also try more shading by using black in the corners and recesses of your Marines.

    Basic version of the way I did mine...

    Chaos Black base
    Mechrite Red
    black wash
    Red Gore
    black wash
    Blood Red
    redgore wash
    Blood Red highlights
    Blood Red / orange fury(?)

    Basically lots of thin layers wins the day.

    i went into games workshop and they told one way is to- basecoat skull white, power armour painted blood red, metal painted chaos black, wash power armour with thinned dark flesh, paint metal with tin bitz, dry brush metal with chainmail, highlight power armour edges with thinned blazing orange, the rest is easy enuf to do urself. Ill post a pic of my blood angel dreadnought using this way when im finished

    Possibly the easiest way to paint them would be:

    Spray them red
    Ink them black/Dip them into some Minwax.

    It seems you are asking for methods that require less effort, rather than advanced techniques for better results?

    I would think that doing a coat of Mechrite Red first, then Blood Red on top, will in the end save you effort over the multiple coats of Blood Red it takes to get an even finish. It will also add some depth to the model.

    For red power armor on my sisters of battle I do Mechrite Red -> Devlan Mud Wash -> Blood Red -> Blazing Orange Highlight -> Half Strength Baal Red Wash

    Doesn't win any Gold Daemons, but from table height they look very good, which is generally the goal for troopers

    Here's a WIP one before the second wash:
