Finally, at last, the Ravenwing models I started on a bajillion years ago are done, varnished, photographed, and (now) posted.
I started out both of these models with a lot of energy, but for some reason, they both turned into total, complete slogs.
I’m not especially happy with either of them; I’m just happy to be done with them.
I bought into Dark Angels on this model when they first released it. It’s boss. Of course, for some reason I never got around to painting or really using him back when.
My new planned Dark Angels list calls for him, though, so I finally picked him back up.
It’s the metal model, of course. I’d considered selling it and replacing it with a Finecast model… but decided the hassle of dealing with metal < the hassle of repairing Finecast. I was wrong. This is too much freaking metal. Blech.
I’m really proud of the base. I think it came out really well. It looks a lot better than a clear plastic rod, and really makes the jetbike look like it’s floating. Of course,it’s holding up 8 lbs of metal, so I’m terrified about the glue not holding. It’s actually got a freaking nail behind that wall bit.
It’s a Librarian and he’s on a bike, yep. I feel like I did more greenstuffing on him than actually shows. I don’t know why.
The arm’s magnetized, though. Force Axes > Force Swords right now, but who knows down the line?
Anyway, they’re done, and I’m back to working on Tau.
