This Blood Angel Death Company Landraider was painted by me back when I had more free time for blending and mad, mad details. This model was given to me as a reward for hard work and accomplishment when I was a member of the GW US Studio team running Games Day, Grand Tournaments, and US Battletours. We had more fun than you could shake a stick at in those days, and the US business isn't what is used to be, but I digress.
This model was the very first on to arrive in the States from England and they wanted to see what I would do with it. No deadlines or anything. As I've said before, I've always wanted to work on a Death Company army and GW had just started producing Index Astartes articles. So I painted it up as you see it. Dirty Steve took loads of photos of it, and the pictures below are taken from White Dwarf. Once that Dwarf came out, Mail Order got swamped with phone calls asking how I could have this Landraider for Death Company when there were no rules at the time for it. Mail Order was a bit ticked off regarding the number of calls, but I replied to them that it's just a normal Landraiders, just painted in Death Company colors. Enjoy!
I'll try to get some more pictures of it to share when I can get a chance.
