I made a decision to start third (and again "final") project and Raven Guard was rather Natural choice.

This is where it all began.  Im gonna have 1 unit of mk6 tacticals.

Decided later to go with Phobos - looks better.

Second squad is wearing mk3 armor. Thinking about making these Veterans but not sure

Dark Fury hits fast and hard. Hope so...

Gotta have Apotechary with the group.

Im hoping to use Arvus Lighter with Raven Guard. Kind of suits them, taking a civilian vehicle when needed. Just what to put inside ? Melta Support team ? Il probably run IA / SA as allies so meaby them

Two Predators Join the force - probably gonna paint them next.

Love the looks of these guys. The Apothecary's jump pack is hilariously loaded with gear though :lol:

I didn't even realize they were Primaris until I saw the apothecary. How did you do the legs on the mk3 marines?


Well would you look at the time, it's zombie o'clock!

Really solid work, particularly on the Furies and painting of the Lighter and bases.

 

How did you make the predator turret?

Looking good, especially the MKVI (love that armour). I tried my hand on this method (cutting up the legs and using spacers), but my results have been a bit hit or miss. How did you get them to look so smooth 🙂? Edit: ...I realize you used Primaris legs now... Nevermind 😅

Cryptix - legs are CSM terminator legs. Just remove all the chains, and some magic with GS. Removing those smaller panels and start is really frustrating but pays of. I only did like 5 in a way i was really happy. 

Pearson 73 - Predator Turret is 3d printed. Wanted to test it out. Had some mk1 rhino front doors doing nothing and vola. Its ok - undercoat will hide most of the layers but mostly i just wanted to this this whole new thing to me out. After 4 - 10 years more people will have devices like these.

Ranulf - Yeah primaris legs are the answer. It is rather easy, not that time consuming but really monotonic work to convert them. One thing you need is cable roller from GSWorld to help with the cables.

Thank you, I might check that thing out. Tell my about monoton work... I build about 20 upscaled marines, and the process of cutting out plastic card spacers again and again... 😅

Started paiting my Mk6 marines. Still wip.

But fairly happy how they turn up. Just think RG theme is one of those legions that tend to look (in my mind) unfinished until pigments. Some other projects tend to "feel" ready much quicker.

Second squad slooowly takings its shape. ILame Pappa Nurgle blessed me random virus and only thing I have been able to is some painting. 

 Like with the previous squad i think that after battle damage I am happy with the results. Few photos before and after pigments.

Well done.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

Final Images of mk6 squad. Did some light / heavy battle damage to armor and I call them done. DId not care to take pics after the base clean ups so this is what they end up look like.

Next time i hope to share some legion "Robots"  or a Deredeo.

Well done. I like the face you weathered his legs with dust matching the colors of the rocks decorating his base.

Really cool!

Oh, and a picture guide for turning Primaris into Mark VI would be greatly appreciated :)
