    [Tale of Painters] Angels of Fire SM Bikes

    I'll use this thread to post all WIP stuff I do on my army, and to posts my list/painting schedule. I don't know how often I will update with pics, cause I never think to take them while painting, but we shall see.

    OK, onto the army.

    The Angels of Fire are a semi-DIY chapter, inspired by one of the marines from the GW list of chapters, under the same name. I just took that and built my army around it. Here is the GW chapter I took inspiration from.

    As the title says, this is a bike army themed around the "Be Swift as the Wind" trait. It is meant to be a fun army, tho I would like to make it as competitive as possible in the confines of my unit choices. Here is my current list with the last 150 pts listed as possible options at the end.

    TRAITS
    -Significant Divergence
    --Be Swift as the Wind
    --Honor Your Wargear
    ---Aspire to Glory
    ----Die Standing

    HQ
    -Reculsiarch - 167
    --Bolt Pistol, Bike, Terminator honors, Frag grenades

    Codicier Librarian - 152
    --Bolt Pistol, Bike, Terminator honors, Frag grenades, Might of Heroes/Fear of Darkness

    TROOPS
    -Bike Squad 1 - 221
    --5 Bikers
    ---Sergent w/ Power Fist and Bolt Pistol
    ---2 Meltaguns
    -----Skilled Riders

    -Bike Squad 2 - 221
    --5 Bikers
    ---Sergent w/ Power Fist and Bolt Pistol
    ---2 Meltaguns
    -----Skilled Riders

    -Bike Squad 3 - 221
    --5 Bikers
    ---Sergent w/ Power Fist and Bolt Pistol
    ---2 Meltaguns
    -----Skilled Riders

    ELITES
    -Veteran Bike Squad - 236
    --5 Bikers
    ---Sergent w/ Power Fist and Bolt Pistol
    ---2 Meltaguns (sometimes Flamers)
    -----Skilled Riders, Furious Charge

    -Veteran Devastators 1 - 266
    --7 Marines
    ---4 Lascannons
    -----Infiltrate

    -Veteran Devastators 1 - 266
    --7 Marines
    ---4 Plasmacannons
    -----Infiltrate

    FAST ATTACK
    -Attack Bike Squad 1 - 134
    --2 Attack Bikes
    ---2 MultiMeltas
    ----Skilled Riders

    -Attack Bike Squad 1 - 134
    --2 Attack Bikes
    ---2 MultiMeltas
    ----Skilled Riders

    HEAVY SUPPORT
    WhirlWind - 85

    WhirlWind - 85

    WhirlWind - 85

    Total pts-2238 With most expensive weapons for squads (Multimelta attack bikes, meltas instead of flamers on veteran bikers).

    Please give criticism on the list, but know that I am not likely to change much on it, and that I also have the option to switch out Attack Bike Weapons and the flamers on the elite bikers for meltas if I wanted some variety. I just don't like how expensive my squads are atm and more pts is scary.

    OK as for painting, I have 2 test models done, a devastator marine and a Biker. Both will likely be stripped as I mess with my scheme, but here are some old, sorta crappy pics I took a while back on my old camera.





    Very dirty looking, because I used ink, and I want to retry with blending instead, as that looks so much nicer.

    Here is my planned schedule [edited 12-10-07],

    Oct
    Serg, 2 meltas, 1 reg biker, 187 pts

    Nov
    Want to build rest of army, so nothing planned here, but might shift things around

    Dec
    bike squad 2 -Serg, 1 Melta, 1 reg, Attack bike, 208 pts

    Jan
    squad 2- 2 bikers, 1 melta biker, Attack bike, 179pts

    March
    Chaplain and 2 Reg bikers, 200pts

    April
    Bike squad 3-Serg, 2 Melta, attack bike, 220pts

    May
    3 WW, 255 pts

    June
    Squad 4, vets- Sergent, 2 meltaguners, 1 reg biker, 199pts

    July
    Librarian, attack bike, 1 vet reg biker, 254pts

    August
    7 devastators, 266pts

    September
    7 devastators, 266pts


    Good Luck to all involved and I hope I can get this done...

    Well sorry for being so quiet and just lurking around the past 2 months, but I have been working, and looking at everyone else's stuff, and great work to all of you.

    Heres my First entry, since I forgot to put it up back on Nov 1.



    During November I spent my time building my squads, and now I have my entire list built save for the 5 regular bikers of the final squad (I am waiting for some new bikes to come, as the ones I have are in a somewhat nasty condition, dang ebay...)

    It took longer than expected to build these darn marines, about 10 days longer, so now I only have 21 days to get my 2nd entry done. I know I could just slack off and use the free December Joker, but I want to make up for the joker I used last month, so if I can, I'm gonna do this squad all the way.

    Heres hopping...

    Anyways, this month is as follows.

    1 Veteran Sergent, 1 Melta Gunner, 1 Regular Biker and 1 Attack Bike with Multimelta: 208 pts

    Here is a progress shot of them primed. I promise to keep some more progress shots and actually participate in the fun part of this project, sharing your work as you paint.



    And on a last little note, the schedule I have is gonna be updated in the first post now that I know how things are working for me with all this.

    Heres a quick WIP shot of the riders. They are almost done, just need some touch up and then their rivets and flames go on last when the bikes are ready. Bikes need the metals and wheels painted before they are ready, I'll get a WIP shot of them in a bit.



    comments and/or criticism?

    Ok heres an update. Bikes are all done up to the flames step, so that means I can start on them.

    I'm thinking of keeping a step by step log of the flames, and makign a quick litle tutorial, so look for that maybe.



    Detail of the screens which I am pretty happy with.



    Thanks for looking.

    Expect the flames to be done by friday, seeing as how I just got off school today.

    I like some of the screens of the bikes.. not all! Some of the screens are like they are a little 'broken' during fight and they are showing 'things'... but that's just me!

    On the other hand you have done a wonderfully firm and nice red... can't wait to see the flames on and the tutorial!

    What do you mean by "broken?" Anyways, I know they aren't the best freehand, but I like em.

    As for the flames, my relatives showed up a bit early than they were going to, so I am going to be lucky to get all the flames done today. And even if I do, I'll probably get the little flame tutorial up tomorrow anyways.

    I meant as if the screens had some damage and they are showing weird things on them... and I have never said they are not good... just a little weird for my personal taste.

    Apart from that... when it is possible and not time consuming... for the tutorial. I want to see the differences between your technique and mine... 0:
