Dirty Uncle Pete's Raven Guard

Postby deFl0 » Mon Jan 03, 2011 3:10 pm

With my guard largely complete, I've had a hankering to finish my sisters, so I can you use them as allies. The issue is that I have a ton of rhinos/immolators for the army, and it would be just a shame not to build them in such a way that the tanks could be multi use. Plus a lot of the top builds are mech marines at the moment, so no time like the present to launch the project. This lead to idea of painting enough space marine to field just about every current competitive build.

After seeing how much space marine stuff I just had hanging around, and being inspired by the new forgeworld raven guard stuff the new griffons from the fantasy box set, I started getting excited to paint feathers, which lead to an idea for a very embellished Raven guard army.

The Ubiquitous Space Marine Inventory. (Sans some 60 SOBs)

Njal, Logan, Pedro, Vulkan equivalents
2 Librarians
1 Librarian in termi armor with storm shield
2 Sunguary Priests / Honor guard
2 Thunder wolf cav characters
5 Thunder wolf cav
15 missile launchers
2 lascannons
6 flamers
6 meltas (with magnetized back packs for jump packs)
5 Thunder Hammer / storm shield Termies (maybe 10 for some vulkan builds)
2 Drop pods
3 Dreads w/ multiple arms
6 Rhinos / Razor backs w/ multiple turrets (extra turrets for predator hulls)
3 Predators w/ multiple sponsons (2 auto cannons, 2 assault weapons)
3 Baal Predators
1 Scout sergeants w/ PF
4 Scouts ccw/pis
1 Scout Melta Gun
5 Scouts cammo cloak, sniper rifle
5 Sternguard/wolf guard (With combi meltas)(maybe one with a powerfist for wolf scouts)
2 Landraider w/ multiple configs
3 Land Speeders w/ multiple configs
32 Bolter/Assault infantry (with magnetized back packs for jump packs)
10 Sergeants with swappable arms (power fists / inferno pistols / combi-weapons) (with magnetized back packs for jump packs)

Just setting up the post to start the blog.

I'm been jamming. I've been grinding heraldry off all sorts of special characters and replacing the heraldry with forge world brass. Time consuming but damn fulfilling when complete :)

Plus I have most of the marines and vehicles largely assembled / de flashed, and the green stuff work is complete for casting.

Now I just need to cast a ton of heads, chests, bases, Immolater bits, Rhino doors, storm shields and back packs...

(Man... what have I taken on!!!)

Take pics of the manufacturing. It'll be all the more impressive to see all the work that went into every model when you finally start painting the things!

And the madness has started. 12 Rhino chassis assembled and awaiting magnets and casted doors, fronts and tops.

Plus a bunch of metal guys with army markings filed off and forgeworld brass used to create raven guard iconography.

They better be! They were paid for in blood... Whittling tons of metal away is great way to cut yourself with an exacto knife...

i actualy have a dremel, but I find I can't get the same level of flatness with the cuttign tools and the areas are too small for the polishing / sand wheels. So I go low tech / high injury method ;)
