I have this desire to use a Stormraven to transport into battle a squad of Deathwing Knights and a close-combat Contemptor Dreadnought. I'm pretty sure that I'd want it to be painted in Deathwing bone, but I'm struggling as to what livery the pilot / gunner should be painted. I see the options as follows:
- Deathwing bone. However, Deathwing bone power armour just doesn't feel right.
- Ravenwing black. I read somewhere that all flyers belong to the Ravenwing, so it would make sense for the pilots to be in Ravenwing Black. But then does this mean I should really paint the whole flyer Ravenwing black too?
- Techmarine red. Again, I recall reading somewhere that vehicles are operated by the chapter forge, but it doesn't fit for members of the forge to be engaged in operations involving the Deathwing and Inner Circle
- Dark Angels green...and thus paint the whole thing green too.
I think my preference is for Deathwing Bone on the outside, Ravenwing black on the inside, but would love you hear your thoughts.
