Anatomy of a Raven; Part 1
Right back on track we have the first part of my planned article series on just how i paint my Ravens.
Pictures for the next part will be on plain black as will all future pics (Thanks to
A.D. for the feedback) So here goes.
Stage One: A fully cleaned and undercoated space marine (arms are blue tacked on)
Stage Two: Removal of arms and a quick touch up on the under coat with a brush
Stage Three: The whole model receives a base coat of 'Deathwatch Black' again for those who've not kept up this is just a 50:50 mix of 'Codex Grey' and 'Chaos Black'
Stage Four: Metallic details are picked out in two thinned down layers of chain mail
Stage Five: 'Skull White' is painted on to the chest details
Stage Six: 'Merchite Red' is added to the eyes and shoulder rim, Metallic and White areas are washed with 'Badab Black' and and slips are painted over
Stage Seven: Several thin layers of white are added to the top of the jumppack for this squads markins
Stage Eight: The right shoulder pad has its freehand detail added, and the model is glued together, ready for 'hard edging'
We'll leave it there for now, I'll up load the next part soon, then we'll have a lovely tutorial on free handing a Raven symbol.
Before I go I have an update especially for Gmort. I've reworked the sniper bolter of my shadow captain, here is the new result.
