I have a black recipe. Dark Angels or Raven Guard?

So I did a test model this evening and finally nailed down a black I am happy with:

Obviously this is a Primaris marine, but I think it will transfer well to my planned Heresy force. What do you guys think? Is it more Dark Angels or Raven Guard? Either way there will need to be some adjustments made but the broad strokes are there.

Nice job! I would lean towards the Ravens.

Definitely Ravens

Your opinion is important, and someone posting here probably does care what you think. You should go tell them. Remember that it really hurts to come up with an idea you care about and have no one else care. Go care about something and tell them what you think. Now. Think of what it would have meant to you when you were young.

Yeah, definitely Raven Guard.

 

Raven Guard in 30k have a much more de-saturated/charcoal looking black than Dark Angels do

Raven Guard is where I would go.

Personally, I'd go Dark Angels, some of the coolest DA I've seen have had a similar tuned down black color.  Looks great!

The test model looks great. Although I hear what @Gederas is saying, if you go Raven Guard you will be painting pretty much black and nothing else. Dark Angels give you more opportunity to have a bit of fun with cheques or stripes, a little red etc. Iron Hands already ruled out?
