Hey all, today I thought I’d show a Death Company StormRaven from a Blood Angels army that I have just finished working on. The model is fully magnetized.
To paint I used a black undercoat in which I then once dry covered with different earth weathering powders. I then sprayed the model with heavily water diluted GW desert yellow. Once this had dried the model would have a dusty feel. Instead of water you can always use white spirits.
I then darkened the model up using Vallejo model air black. Once this had dried I highlighted the model with Tamiya Nato black and then with Tamiya German grey.
The cross effect was made by using a stencil and airbrush. What do you guys think?
Looks awesome.I like the black windows as it looks menacing.It reminds me of a stealth bomber.Good stuff.
Cool! Any chance we can see the rest of the army?
Cheers Tim, I will be putting them on bit by bit throughout the next couple of weeks.
Just make sure to show us a whole army shot. If you could.
Love it! The weathering is spot on. Just enough and not over the top.
So when you do the vallejo black and highlights AFTER the pigments, are you hitting the whole model or just patches? Seems like that order of things would cover up a lot of the weathering work, but the model looks amazing so obviously it worked…inquiring mind(s) want to know!
Just areas, like exhausts, metalic parts, dark areas. Not the whole thing.
legs, guns, vents, exhausts. plus you can hit areas inside of plates.

It's nice and an effective scheme, except for painting the canopies. It would have been a bigger punch to have seen the pilot and gunner in the cockpits.
