Blood Raven Army Log (*Updated* DEC 13, page 4)

Postby Joe » Mon Oct 13, 2008 10:30 am

Okay so apparently I don't know how to change the name on my own post... and I don't want to have to keep swapping pages and stuff.... So I will just keep everything here I think.

This is the story so far:

I picked up some used Space Marines, I don't like playing Marines personally, but they are a blast to paint. I was deciding on what chapter to paint... and although I was pretty much already set, I put it to a vote. Luckily Blood Ravens won... which is probably what I was going to do anyway... see, I create the illusion of a Democracy... kind of like the United States.

Oh I can see some angry posts coming from that haha.

Anyway, along with the used stuff, I kind of found my way into the possession of about 2 squads from Battle for Maccragge or whatever. So it is a decent sized force. I will be posting updates here on the first page probably, the other topic I will either lock or delete.

This is the post in the other topic:

Okay, so it has been a while since I started this, and well I pretty much forgot about it.

I decided to go with Blood Ravens, and I don't know exactly what I have at the moment.

I will probably list it all later.

I finally painted 1 of the guys up... I like the way he turned out and I think an whole army done the same way will look really nice.

Really nice detail on the base.

How did you make it?

And the American joke made me chuckle.

For the base I glued some textured plasticard that I picked up from the local Hobby shop. Then I added a little bit of coarse rocks and primed them... I actually made those bases probably about a year ago... I just never had anything I wanted to use them on. I even had them painted already.

And I'm glad you liked my comment :) but I never said it was a joke. hahaha

Thanks, I personally think it looks better in person.

Oh well... now I have to start painting more of them. I think I have about 30 Marines, 20 scouts... I think like 5 Veterans, a Chaplain with Jump Pack, and a Librarian in Termie Armour.

I might have a Razorback and Dreadnought too.

Well they are Blood Ravens, so I am planning on using their symbol... but I don't want to ruin the model with freehand... I will probably try molding one with Greenstuff and then casting a couple to put on them...

I was considering going with squad markings... although I don't think the Blood Ravens had them in the game. We will see how the Raven goes... if its tough I will stick with that and not try to venture into too much else.

Thanks, I plan on making a table... well... painting some GW terrain and putting it on a table. Throwing on the crashed lander, the ruining building, and some trees. The picture has one of my buildings in it already... I have like 8 trees... maybe more. Then I have a couple Landers.

For the rest of the Army I will probably be making similar bases. Well the scouts will be in the grass and woods I think, and the Jump Pack guys I may make them like the new Veterans jumping off rubble.

Now, to your actual question. The Raven Symbol on their shoulders, I will be trying to make out of Greenstuff, and somehow casting it. That way I can mass produce them... I mean I will have to make over 60 of them if I use them on all the Marines... if I used them on the scouts it will be another 30-40. I just don't want to ruin my models trying to free hand it.
