Despite convincing myself that black isn't that difficult to paint I can't getaway from the fact I just don't want to paint it. Difficult - no, boring/tedious - yes
And there were additional decisions, like the winged sword colours on the robed Black Knights. I went with red, as I;d done that on others and they'd match. But, I never liked it - so the best of a bad job.
The molten lava sword wasn't quite as good as the Talonmaster, but with time I've come to be satisfied with them rather than the slight disappointment I originally felt.
I've still got a few robed riders and bits from my Ravenwing Command sprue to make a few more Black Knights, just short on bikes. And here was me thinking my Ravenwing was done!
But with a load of upgrade bits, Corvus Hammers and Plasma Pistols for conversions some cheap bikes will get me another three Knights if I so choose.
The two bikers to join the odd one I did with my #DreadTober pledge.
Here are the 3 together.
And with my Primaris Chaplain on bike for a cool 'Kill Team' shot.
Some closer pics to get a better look at them.
At least I managed to get the re head lamp glow to be a little more to my liking.
Great looking Black Knights (and chaplain) congrats on the lot! They look great en masse!ReplyDelete
Cheers DAM, aside from my AoP display last year I've not really seen them en masse and even then I used a lot of terrain and Death Guard to make it look more impressive [aka busy!]. I probably need to see my Ravenwing solely as a faction at some point. Perhaps when I've done my Deathwing I need to do a photo shoot of Deathwing, Ravenwing and Greenwing in their own companies. Afterall, that's the reason I liked Dark Angels so much - there was variety in their colour scheme with the 3 company colours.
