After much debate I finally chose to go with Blood Angels. The deciding factor was test painting a couple of Marines in yellow. I remembered that I found yellow boring to paint so red it was ^_^
Made a start painting up the 40k boxed set dreadnought which had been sitting in the box for the last 2 years.
I've also been reading the 2nd book in the Horus Heresy series, False Gods, which I'm finding gripping, yet slightly sad. When you know the overall story and how bad it gets, reading this is like watching a very slow avalanche and feeling powerless to stop it.
