Slow progress on the Storm Raven this week, I’ve been a bit distracted with the new paints. However I have managed to paint the four chapter icons and glue those on and paint the Aquillas gold. I think I’ll start work on the weapon systems next. As an extra bonus, read on to see a comparison shot of one of my old Grey Knights paints in Vallejo Game Colour paints compared to a Grey Knight I painted using the new Citadel paints.
This comparison shot above is for Minitrol, who requested it in the other post. The left one has been painted with the new Citadel paints and the right with Vallejo Game Colour. As you can see no real difference. The left has smoother blending on the blade, and I think that was because of the higher choice of blues mean’t less intermediate mixes. I think a lot of people are panicking about colours not matching, but I’m a paint mixer anyway so I just mix until I get it right and if it’s slightly off no one will notice on the table top.
Ah ha that's very impressive!
And you're right and pretty much backs my assertion the colours are very close. I think the main issue has been the colour conversion chart was wrong. may of the colours do have better matches than the one GW recommended.
Agreed with Marcin here.. the way you have painted the Stormraven is great.. plenty of Aribrush work though I assume?
Also the 2 troopers.. you can hardly tell the difference except for the blades as you pointed out. Great stuff!
Very impressive work on the storm raven. Every time i see the free hand im blown away
Also great to see a side by side comparison on the two knights. Will for sure be picking up some of the new layer paints to blend with.
Brilliant work, simply brilliant!
A stunning pice, the blue Metal really amazes me!

I am afraid to even open the box and build mine. I am going to really have to practice with my airbrush.
Side by side looks really good. I am going to swing by and pic up some paints this weekend and give it a try.

That's one Hell of a classy ride. I must say that I'm not exactly a fan of the Storm Raven with its bulky appearance – compared even to other Imperial aerial vehicles and their flying brick design – but you've made it look nice enough for me to overlook its flaws (especially with no bolters placed behind the frontal thrusters). Besides, that bluish armor still looks amazing.
