Two kits - three units.

Hello once again.  

Recently I bought a few sets to increase the size of my Raven Wings. You can read about it in posts with black paint :)

I bought, among other things Landspeeder and Landspeeder storm. Why Landspeeder storm, as Dark Angels can not put it in army lists ? Because it looks sensational,
and in addition the seller does not have a two ordinary ones.

 Glueing, magnetization and painting the  ordinary one was not a problem.
Also to glue Raven Wing ornaments from the remaining bits.

 More interesting is the second kit. Land speeder storm is used by the armies of the Space Marines Codex, known as vanilla marines. It may be added as a dedicated transport for scouts.
Because scouts are in the kit, and as I mentioned, I can not put it in this form, I had to make extraktion unit from the vehicle.
I have gained in this way six scouts in a rather strange poses. (At this point I decided  not to straighten them, because effects may have to be even weirder.)
The only thing left is to replace the driver and gunner with Space Marines in power armors.
Ravenwing bike sergeant and one remaining of my space marines fits well.

 The problem were the scouts. Some of them did not have weapons, and theyr poses were a more siting. And they had no cloaks. I decided to leave it as it is. Some I gave knives, some heavy bolters. One I had before. The one with sniper rifle. Thats the WIP effect of the seven man scout squad.

More black paint

The first free Sunday for a long time. All forward. Construction of the house progressed, my brother in law got married, children grow. The next summer came to an end.

It is time to show off some new acquisitions in my army of dark angels.
In a previous post I wrote about the second model exclusive for dark angels - Nephilim jetfighter / dark talon. Here are some pictures of my model, glued as Nephilim jetfighter, from different phases of painting.

And some closeups of the base.

Also recently I managed to buy occasionally, from a neighbor several smaller models.
Dark vengeance starter set, Deathwing knights and terminators from deathwing command.
So number of my bikes increases to 6, terminators to 15 and deathwing knigts to 10.

I decided we do not need two formations of 3 motors, only one larger. So, one sergeant of ravenwing  motorcyclists was out.
 Because in the models that I bought, was also limited chaplain Seraphicus, I decided to do conversions on a motorcycle.
  Itwas enough to cut in half the sergeant and chaplain and swap the upper halfs.
Here are the results :


And nearly finished...

Thats all. I hope you like it.  Now i need to finish five more motorbikes. Need more black paint ...

Paint it black


          With the money that I saved by quiting smoking, I bought some models to improve my army of Dark Angels. In the light of the new Codex, which gives preference to Ravenwing, I decided to buy exclusive models that only Dark Angels have on their lists.

Assembling of both models took about 4 hours. Without any magnetization, because Landspeeder does not require, and  a plane, I knew in what Version I want.

And now painting ... It is hard to think of something in the model that is intended to be all black ...
 Brings us to the old hit ...


 After the gluing the two models, both prophylactically I sprayed with black spray paint from the Army painter.
 I received two perfect black body. And what's next ?
 In fact, it could expose them on the table already at this point. They were to be all black? and they are.
 But I guess that was not the point. The first to the workshop went Landspeeder.
A little dry brushing with irreplaceable astronomican gray (what will I do when it ends?) Emerged all the details of the model.

Model has two versions, both wonderful. The first is a version with kind of a chapel on top. Darkshroud. 

As you can see from the pictures, all black model is not a completely black.

And the second version of the model, with two plasma guns.
 Doing both versions does not even require the magnetization

 Now murdering another model that was black, but not completely.

Skitarii Rangers painting phototutorial


In Poland is high summer, when the temperature is 33 degrees and there is no way to paint models. For over a two months I get tired of these Skitarii Rangers, and still two of them are not even started.
When painting, I took some pictures, so try to make them a little tutorial.

 At the first, of course, we should prime model. We use for this a single color paint.
 This may be the original primer, such as Citadel Imperial Primer, or any single color, matching the rest of the colors used later on the model. I decided on Abaddon Black, due to the large number of metal / mechanical parts of the model. the undercoating have done a brush, not spray so as not to flood the details.


Then, all metal and mechanical part, dry brush with brown paint. I used to this Oak Brown from the  Armypainter warpaints palette, but it can be any dark brown paint.

Then the same parts, paint the same technique we only use gold paint. For me it was P3 Burnished gold, but other gold/coppeer paint are also good for this step. Just be sure to not be too bright.

Now they look like golden army soldiers from Hellboy: Golden Army :P

Time to change this. Lets paint carefully coats in red. Mephiston red is the most suitable for this.
It allows you later lighten with other reds and oranges.

The inside of the coat, paint with ivory paint.
I use p3 Jack Bone because it is thin and well covers, but citadel paints are also good for this.

In fact, we already have the basics, now details. Drybrush (again) all metals with Boltgun metal, paint eyes with bright green paint.

To to imitate flashes of electricity, I used the Temple Guard Blue. Cables on his chest, the coils on the backpack, connectors on the legs and rifle parts.

 To enhance the effect, Citadel has a special line of paints - glazes. Here I used blue - Guiliman Blue. To highlight eyes, Vallejo Fluorescent green.

And that's basically the end of the tutorial, because I have no more photos. I did not make such a tutorial never before. I hope it was helpfull and you like it. Next time i take better camera, and try to explain details. At end some photos of others of my Skitarii.
