Default Raven Guard - My way back to the hobby!

Well, its been a long time since I bothered with forums, or the hobby for that matter! But making a project log is motivating! So here I am, I picked Raven Guard, for a few reasons mainly the awesomeness of FW's Captain Korvydae, using Space Marines is safe (meaning if I have another year or two's break, my army will still be ok) SM are a good painting army - meaning the armour is one colour so not to much messing around! And I like the RG play style, ninjas..

Here is a looksie at the list Im working at (I'm buying as I paint so feel free to pick at it!!) Yes no Shrike!! This list is based around Korvydae and Imperial Armour 8 although Im using the GW SM dex. Also I painted some minis, I have some FW goodies and the new tac squad - which incidently is very nice!




1.5K Raven Guard List



SM captain (Korvydae)

Nice looking start that man! Damage/wear seems to be done to a good level (not too much, not too little), dirt looks ace and even managed to highlight the black well! I'm impressed!

Get more up asap! Really like these two! :-) Are they transfers for the badges etc or are you just mega at freehand?

cheers! I wish I could say freehand, but they are the fw transfers. I used Microsol which makes them softer (harder to place as well!) weathered them and then washed. Once I Dulcote they look painted on. I'll try and take better pics next time.

Also this list isnt my current list (Icant find it!!) but basically all lightening claws are dual... will try and work out how I squeezed the points for that...

Looking forward to seeing more of them! For transfers they're really well done, I thought they were painted so they fit on the model without being obvious! Top stuff! :-)

I paint in gray first highlighting to nearly white and the make a black glaze and give it some coats. TBH the pictures are crap (yeah I know!!) and of course if people dont look closely they think you just have an undercoated army those are the only problem with black armies.

Raven Guard are the cool guys of the SM codex - fact!
