Ravenwing Black Knights - More Plasma Talons

Ravenwing Black Knights - More Plasma Talons

Warhammer 40,000 – I remember when bitz boxes the world over were filled with left over Space Marine Plasma Guns. It was always a weapon that would kill your own gun at the most inopportune of times, which meant any other special weapon would see more play on the table. Eight Edition made it a choice to supercharge your plasma and risk killing your own guy rather than happening every time they fire their gun. Suddenly plasma guns are all the rage and you see them on everything.

Warhammer 40,000 – I just wrapped up more iconic Ravenwing models.

Ravenwing ... Basic Black

Warhammer 40k – Black is one of those colors I have a love/hate relationship with. When it's done right it looks amazing on the table, but even then it's hard to get credit for the amount of time it took to get to the level of detail you put in. On the other hand when doing a basic three color paint job it's super easy to put down two thin coats of black and call it a day. I've also figured out a nice dark gray mix that when washed with Nuln Oil makes a nice substitute for painting black and edge highlighting.

On the painting table ... Ravenwing

Warhammer 40,000 – It just doesn't end, the Dark Angels just keep coming. In this batch we have the remainder of the Ravenwing contingent of his force. This consists of a bunch of bikes and a Landspeeder Typhoon. Painting the Ravenwing is one of my least favorite jobs, don't get me wrong they look amazing on the table top but painting black is difficult to make look right. It's not like you can just wash it to get a nice shade so most of the detail comes from what you do with the highlighting.
