Howdy Y´all! Recently finished this Death Company Stormraven to go along with my Elite Death Company squad! This model sat on a shelf for years, just clothed in its black primer and it does feel good to have it done. I didn´t much care for the bubble turret so I swapped for a regular tank style pintIe. I did not realise how big ravens were! Hope you like!

Sexy. 

 

 

The heat bloom on the engines and especially the meltas is DOPE.

I'm loving those engines. That thing looks like it's flying  thumbsup.gif

 

Are the side doors Rhino or LR size, never built a Stormraven?

Aesthetics will naturally weed out the bad choices.

 

Suffer not the douche to play.

Soular - Jan 2005 - "Oh, I almost forgot... the Blood Angels are red. Not some fairy lame color like blue or yellow. Not presumptuous goth black, or goth-lite gray. Not green (I mean, green?) or white (coming up with a primary color was too difficult for them). They are red; the color of blood, violence, and Taiwanese hooker lipstick."

How do you get those lovely effects on the engines?

 

Great looking paint job!

Thanks Mordas

 

The heat effect is really simple. Paint up your engines as normal - silvers, shades, drybrush etc. Then using the FW Clear paints (which are now available through GW) go through Blue, Purple, Red and Orange, overlapping each colour slightly into the next. The engines I did with an airbrush, the melta barrels with a normal brush.

I really like it, however the assault cannon doesn't look right. You should use the manned turret, imo. The small one is an air trap that makes the vehicle look even less suited to flight!

I think it's the way the assault cannons are mounted. They're too far forward as the razorback turret thingy is intended for the cannons to be mounted 180 degrees. It currently looks like a pintle mount and it's a little bit too spartan.

It´s all subjective, I just dont like the manned version lol No issues with people who prefer it, just not for me.

Looks so much better without the upper cockpit, let alone having a DC paint job.
