Wow, I'm following this topic for inspiration when I begin on my Ravenwing!

Heralds of the coming doom, by cry of raven we are drawn. This oath of war and vengeance, on exalted iron sworn. Punishment divine, unleashed with hate. Purge with plasma, fist, and shell. Bring cleansing fire's righteous breath. For the Emperor, Knights of Caliban, the Lion's anointed Angels of Death! No forgiveness! No retreat!

Hi everyone,

 

Just a quick update as it's been a while - had to take a break from hobbying while I finished my phd thesis. But I am now back with a vengeance, and got myself this magnificent beast as a reward for finishing. I have loved the fire raptor model for a long time so I'm very happy to now own one - looking forward to painting it up and flying it into battle alongside the 2nd company.

Oh man, what a great thread, I can’t believe I missed it up until now! Very inspiring work brother, I love the subtle conversions, and that’s some solid paint you have, especially the heraldry and the wings on the flyers. And what a sweet idea, using the Brets as novice RW. At first I wasn’t sure what was going on, then I saw the bolters and it all made sense hahaha. I’m really looking forward to more!

How was the Raptor to put together?  I've heard some horror stories that have so far stopped me picking one up.

I was the exact same - I put off getting one for years because of all the horror stories. But it was nowhere near as bad as I thought it would be, and I wish I'd taken the plunge sooner.

It does require a lot of patience and hot water (to get all those warped pieces straight). But as long as you are methodical and take your time to get each step right before moving on to the next, you should be fine. There's plenty of great build tutorials out there as well that really help.

My wife may be hunting you down soon :)

You won't regret it! From a hobby perspective at least haha.

Now excuse me while I bunker down in the fortress of redemption - we dark Angels are famed for our hunting abilities, so our spouses must be equally capable :P

I have a game tonight, you've inspired me to take RW. 1500pts I believe, going to try out a Talonmaster with Sammael see how they fare.

Go for it! RW are always a blast to play, and sammy and a talonmaster will do the emperor's work when played right. Remember the "only in death" stratagem for when your TM bites it as a fun little parting surprise. Good luck with your game

Will do!

 

I have no idea what I'm facing.  I have no mobile phone at the moment so can't pester my opponent haha!  He has Death Guard, Iron hands, Eldar, Nids and Tau...... sweat.gif

Loving what you've posted so far! I got really into the story-parts you've written, and am looking forward to seeing more! Loving the conversions, especially the Bretonnian Bolters, they made my day! Great work, man! teehee.gif

Forgot to reply to this. I won against an Iron Hands - Salamanders combo.  Sallies get a lot of re-rolls but in the end T5 and the presence of a Dark Shroud proved their undoing, For the Lion!

Thanks heaps. I'm waiting for the weather to clear up so that I can undercoat the raptor and get stuck into it. So I hope to have more updates soon!

Forgive me, Masters of the Unforgiven, for I have lapsed in my attentions to the First Legion. As my repentance, please accept these humble offerings to the Rock's armoury - converted Sammael and Talonmaster on Dawneagle jetbikes (following Brother Bish's great tutorial, with a few tweaks - I've magnetised the torsos, handlebars and jet bike weapons so I can swap them out for Custodes shield captains with ease!

 

Hope you enjoy:

 

Sammael

Sammael close up - the photo doesn't quite do it justice, but I'm really pleased with how the Raven Sword turned out

Talonmaster

Talon master close up - again, very stoked with the sword

Yep! I can't claim credit for the idea (there's plenty floating around), but my twist was to use the custodes legs, and to magnetise the rider's torso and handlebars, and the assault cannons on the bottom. That way, I can actually take them off and put the custodes torso and handlebars on and use them as shield captains
