The Stormraven – Part 2

Continued on from Stormraven – Part 1.

After the base coat, it was time to use the airbrush to re-coat the exterior surfaces with Blood Red, and time to start work on the interior detailing such as the seating and the screens.

Once again, GW’s Guide provided some excellent tips, especially on gem effects for screens – something I replicated again in the cockpit.

Lemartes was my second project for the Blood Angels. He’s another model with some fiddly bits – in particular the bones on the armour. Like the Mephiston post earlier, I used Bleached Bone washed with Gryphonne Sepia to get the awesome appearance you see on the helmet.


So when I decided to collect a Blood Angels army, I decided I wanted to include Mephiston, I mean who wouldn’t? He’s a one man army who tears apart tanks, troops and buildings with his bear hands!

Meph was the first figure I painted for my Blood Angel army. Not the wisest move I could have made, truth be told. He’s a damn hard figure to paint well – mostly because of his armour. Still, Several hours later after starting with a skull white primer and a layer of scab red with drybrushed blood red later (and some washing with a 50:50mi of badab black and baal red….) and the armour took on the effect you see above. With some Iyanden Darksun edging it looks pretty good. The skull shoulder pad was primed skull white, painted bleached bone, sockets etc. painted chaos black and then washed with Gryphonne Sepia.
