So I gave in a few weeks ago when given an option to buy a brand new Storm Raven at 60% of list.

I know the Dark Angels cannot officially take one but I could not resist. After a bit of feeling the water (Thanks Capt S, you convinced me) I have plunged on the idea of painting it up as an addition to my Ravenwing - after all with the name Storm Raven, what else could I do ;)

I ordered the "Pimp my Raven" stretched Limo kit from Chapterhouse studios as I don't like the proportions of the original and am waiting for it to turn up.

This week I will be putting some of the sub-assemblies together and will upload photos on Fri.

I am expecting this to take a while especially as the extra bits have not shipped yet!

Fingers crossed it will be in the DA's next Codex :D

Good luck mate! Take your time with that - it will be a focal point in your army! And I sure hope it's included in our new dex...

After 3 nights work the Turret (Las cannons only at the moment) and Hurricane bolters are complete and more good news is that Chapterhouse are sending out the stretched kit soon.

The side panels over the turret weapons are magnetised so I will be able to swap and change as I want.

I just noticed a little tidying up that needs to be done - I hate camera close ups :D

Rules for the storm hawk are up on forge world. You can use it legitimatly now :)

"The Orks are the pinnacle of creation. For them, the great struggle is won. They have evolved a society which knows no stress or angst. Who are we to judge them? We Eldar who have failed, or the Humans, on the road to ruin in their turn. And why? Because we sought answers to questions that an Ork wouldn't even bother to ask. We see a culture that is strong and despise it as crude."

What we imagine is order is merely the prevailing form of chaos.

Or even the Storm Budgie! ;)

It could be played as the Storm Eagle until it is added to our new codex - this would be too good an oportunity for GW to miss for extra cash income (Maybe the LSS as well :lol: ).

To be honest I will not normally play this in games but just wanted a challenge of an unusual (to the DAs) model.

It will more than likely end up gathering dust as a display model. We'll see :D

So far looks pretty crisp... and the Chapterhouse add-ons are quite interesting... make it look a lot better than Storm Tweety normally looks! :D

Storm Magpie is gonna be a Blood Ravens exclusive vehicle. It will also pack a powerful magnet and a mini-armory inside filled with "gifts". :D

My personal guess is that we may well get the Stormhawk as our flier (painted in Chapter Green of course, as being a flier/aircraft it'll be an Armoury vehicle :D). Its a Heresy era craft and so would be a good tie in to the Ancient tech angle.

*****Notice*****

Now that the LSS opinions thread has been locked I don't want this thread to turn into a discussion on how/why/why not the Ravenwing etc.

Will all Brothers keep their comments to - yes it looks lovely etc.

Thanks

New Transmission ******

Last night I managed to paint the Techmarine Pilot and the cockpit - but you will have to wait until Fri/Sat for the pictures :)

Tonight will be the remaining turret weapons options and tomorrow night the engines.

I love it when a plan comes together :teehee:

Capt. S. you have made me an addict!!!

Looking good Elmo. I have no criticism (YET!!! muhahaha). All your highlighting lines are very crisp and clean. Keep it up.

And if we wind up getting something like the FW Storm Eagle in the next dex, your stretch Storm Raven will fit just fine as a proxy.

Of course you can - may take a while though - 10 to 20 days is the delivery estimate :)

Very nice work so far!
Looking forward to seeing how it turns out.
With 'Raven' in the name how could it fail to fit into the Chapter?

Lastly: love red weapons!

Elmo, great job so far, I'm not a fan of red weapon details so much, but you are definitely pulling everything off well (and it fits the rest of your army ^_^). I like the detailing on the gunner-servitor's control panels!

Thanks guys

It is only a shame that the canopy hides much of the work on the servitor and the controls.
When I take the photos of the Pilot and cockpit I will leave the canopy off so you can see the details :D

And with the canopy on

I know from other threads that his colours will probably cause discussion in itself but I wanted him to look a part of the Ravenwing but still be identified as a Techmarine hence the Red/Black. I think it works well ;)

Ignore the white dots on the fuselage top section - it is only undercoated at the moment. It needs a little more work where the eagle was removed from the canopy and replaced with the DA Icon. You can still see the outline.

The Missiles need a bit of work to make them fit snug - they are a little loose at the moment.

Engines

I have removed the winglet from the engines - this has to be done to fit on the Chapterhouse kit.

Looks good Elmo. Regardless of the pilot's station, I think the red ties all the other red accents together nicely and gives a nice splash of color to a part that may have been mostly black otherwise.

Agree with EPK! This is coming along very nicely! The pilot certainly catches the eye! I really like the black/red/metal combo!

Can't wait for the fuselage and the finished thing!




So a Techmarine permanently attached to the RW! Get ready for flak! ;)
