Default Blood Ravens Paint Log

I've been sitting on these guys for a while now. I've begun the arduous but rewarding process of painting them as I paint other things. Below is the first nearly complete squad with Sergeant.

Another small update. After three days of working on him, the Librarian heading up the Terminator squad is complete!

Updates for the Updates God... hehe

I just finished my Techmarine for the army, and I must say, he turned out better than I had anticipated. I might even be getting better at this... maybe...

Great job so far, mate! I think, though, that the shoulderpads look a little too clean, especially on the tactical squad. Maybe try a very light coating of either nuln oil or agrax earth shade? Could add some "depth" to the colours. Look forward to seeing more!

Yeah, the tactical squad was a 'test' squad for just the basic color scheme I'm using. I have yet to really work with the washes much, but the nuln oil was one of the ones I was thinking of using once I'd gotten into the grove of things. Thanks for the advice ^_^

Looking great mate. Everything is looking solid. Perhaps a bit of drybrushing (highlights) will help with more depth as well as the washes/shade.

I took some advice and used a wash to tone down the bright tan of the shoulder pads. I think it looks alright actually. Enjoy a nearly complete squad with a few things snuck in for fun.

Ok, it's been forever but I've got a few additions to this army that I'm trying to put the finishing touches on. There are below for your viewing pleasure.







I'm pretty proud of them, the Centurion especially. Happy how he turned out.
