Add The Heraldry Of The Blood Angels To Your Heresy Troops

September 12, 2015 by brennon

Forge World have added some more upgrade kits to the range of Horus Heresy components available for the Loyalists. This time around the focus is on the Blood Angels with Heads, Torsos and then a series of Shoulder Pads just like with the Dark Angels.

Space Vampires?

Kicking things off we’ll have a look at the heads for the Blood Angels which come in a variety of designs. I actually like the plainer ones in this set compared to others. The solitary tear on the helmets adds to their ‘mystery’ and plays into this idea of vamperism a bit more – as well as a Greek Hoplite idea.

As well as the helmets we have the torsos which bear the iconic tear of the Blood Angels in a range of different settings. In this case I like the one in the bottom right the most with the skull sitting in the middle of it all.

While Games Workshop do love their skulls I think it’s a telling sign of things to come with the Death Company.

Shoulder Pads – All The Rage

It wouldn’t be an upgrade kit without the addition of some more shoulder pads of various Marks. There are the MK II, III and IV variants to pick from. The ones modelled here on the Space Marines below are the MK IV variant.

Once again this looks like a neat upgrade kit and I can already hear a few people mumbling about using these in Warhammer 40,000 as well as Horus Heresy games to give their armies a bit more personality.

Are Blood Angels your chapter of choice?
