Dark Angels - Ravenwing Attack Bikes & Black Knights

Afternoon #WarHamFam and #WarhammerCommunity I've been #PaintingWarhammer #DarkAngles #Ravenwing Attack Bikes & Black Knights... I know it seems like I haven't been hobbying and that's partly true, but I have done some things, just haven't written about them yet. Anyway, this is the metallics on all the bikes.

There were some slight changes to the recipe - Army Painter Rough Iron > VGC Hammered Copper > Citadel  Retributor Armour > Citadel Runelord Brass. The Runelord is'.t as light as the mix of gold and silver I usually do but the further sepia wash blends [obscures] it all anyway.

Having drybrushed and sponged the metallics on I then touched up all the back to make it tidy. Although bikes can be labour intensive, and attack bikes doubly so,

the Black Knights were also coming along. I even regret not getting my last 3 bikes 'Raven-blinged' up and to this stage too. The thought of tackling them further down the line and doing all this again is a little off-putting.

The Primaris Chaplain has kept pace though, even though I didn't want my Primaris force to have bronze as feature - they'll be silver as a significant counter-point to all my other armies.

That said, although I don't want Primaris in my Dark Angels, I have the Redemptor because it's a solo unit and would be a centrepiece. For that reason I think this as a HQ choice can sit along old school figures because it's a standout model.

I do have 2 other old skool Chaplains on bikes though so I can have them consistent if I want.
Question: I need to put a Ravenwing banner on the back of this bike, don't I?
With these ready for their Blessed Verdigris I ran out of momentum and switched to some terrain...


  1. Looking good! A Ravenwing banner on the chaplain certainly wouldn't be amiss...
