Raven Guard and the Shattered Legions Plan
The black was just 2 coats of undercoat spray and rather than doing edge highlights which as far as I'm concerned goes against all the RG fluff I've added battle damage to break up the larger black areas.
After a lot of thought I have decided to NOT paint white on my Raven Guard and are instead going for the same muted metal look that is on the shoulder pads. This is in keeping with a HH poster I have of the loyalist legions (I'll try and put a photo up soon). The effect of this is to give them a much more stealthy look and I have always felt that the bright white was not very sneaky...
I wanted to do something to help them fit in with Corax's 'dynamic entry' pose of him crashing through a roof onto some unsuspecting traitors so I've used 5mm perspex to replicate glass on several of the bases. I was trying to make it look like they were barrelling in through windows and it seems to have worked quite well, my one issue is that the superglue fumes have frosted the perspex but it's a minor point. I still have to do a bit more weathering but I bent the needle of my airbrush so am currently waiting for a replacement to arrive. In the mean time I've painted up the Mor Daythen strike squad and made a start on Corax.
