Dark Angels - Ravenwing Black Knights and bikes - White pics

Afternoon #WarHamFam and #WarhammerCommunity I've been #PaintingWarhammer on my remaining #Ravenwing Black Knights and bikes. Obligatory white backdrop pics.

Black Knights

I think if I was ever going to play my Dark Angels I probably would want to run a Ravenwing forces

I do like the bikes but even with all this effort I probably still don't have enough

Molten lava sword

I mean it's alright and it shares the colour of the Plasma Talons rather than adding fancy blue power weapon colours into the mix.

2nd Black Knight

3rd Black Knight

The shoulder pad was from the Dark Angel Veteran sprue, which certainly made it easier to add the company number underneath it.

I'm not sure if my highlights have improved. I just think I've become more tolerant of the brush strokes I make. 

Happy just to put enough on there to define what I want and then move on.

And the last 2 bikers

Together with their other brother. 


I wanted some Chainsword wielding bikers for this squad as I think they're a fair bit better than they used to be, but what do I know?


  1. They look fantastic, mate. Chainswords are pretty good, these days, though I have hit pause on playing modern 40K for the foreseeable future. Hopefully, the next set of rules brings the fun back.

    1. I am in total agreement. It's incredibly sad how I feel about the game at the moment after spending so much time painting my figures. If I didn't have a genuine compulsion just to paint everything I have [and yet still buy more] I'd be feeling even more upset.

      But I know a new edition is likely to mean buying more figures and I still have so much to complete. But if I have fun playing the game again that might mitigate adding to my grey tide.

  2. They look great. I really like the blue highlights on the black armour.

    1. Cheers Sachiel, it's a little enhanced for the majority of the pictures, the second image might be more colour accurate. I wanted the white background to be white and for some of the subtlety of the highlights visible on the black. So, rather than have everything too dark I upped the exposure which shows all the painting, but with slightly more vibrant colours than real life.
