I just found, after thirty years or so, my copy of White Dwarf #142. This was the one that started my love of epic gaming because it contained the painting guide for the “Studio Army,” a giant 6000-point Blood Angels army. With the advent of 3mm scale More Epic Than Epic from Vanguard, I’m celebrating this event by building my own 3mm scale 2nd Edition Blood Angels army in the super bright and vibrant, over the top colors of the early 1990s. My first few transports are below. This feels like when the world was new. Such a trip, man.

The goal is 6000 points. Naturally some liberties will have to be taken: the Warlord Titan will probably be difficult to source unless I can twist an arm of a 3D printer-equipped friend of mine. Likewise, 3mm scale outriders aren’t there yet, so they’ll get jet bikes instead, which I’ve had to mash up some rules for using the Eldar as an archetype. But it’s looking promising so far!

Sounds like a nice chunky project! 3D printing is really great and I hope you get your force together using a balanced concoction of bribes and threats :)

Great idea!

For the Warlord, I'd just use an old plastic beetleback as it'll be pretty much truescale compared to 3mm Vanguard models!

Thanks guys! I managed to get my first Tactical Company primed and ready to paint up. And I’m getting new unit and detachment cards and order markers custom printed and diecut - I drew them myself, so that they include all the silhouettes and game stats.

The bases, by the way, are 1/16” laser cut plywood with a 1/8” hole in the center, in which I put a small ND magnet for storage. The black disc on top is a piece of plastic to hold the magnet in place.

From the depths of the 1990s come the Blood Angels!

First Detachment, 6th (Tactical) Company.
