Yet another Raven Guard "conversion." I've only got one more model left to do in this small series and that's a dual Thunderhammer wielding Terminator Sergeant. He's not so much a conversion of a previous model as he's a scratchbuild.
Both images above can be clicked on for the larger version. This guy took a little bit of work to get him convincing. He's on a resin base from Dark Arts miniatures, but I still had to add some rubble to prop his sword up on something. All it took was a bit of sprue, but it's one more litle thing when it come to conversion work and those add up quickly.
I covered all the Ultramarine symbols on this guy and ultimately had no room to "sculpt" anything Raven Guard related. I ended up using the same color palette and lots of freehand to carry the model this time.
I added some decorative trim to the inside of his cloak, and then a huge Raven Guard symbol on the back. His right shoulderpad has the chapter icon painted on it and you can see the same symbol on the small shield attched to his right shoulder as well.
I kept with the pale skin and bald heads for unhelmeted guys. This guy is perhaps my favorite pewter model these days. The pose combined with the head make for a very menacing looking model.
He was a bit of a challenge to paint as well. Since most of the trim on his armour is done in gold, I resorted to carefully blending my grey highlights from the edge outward instead of just a simple line highlight. That way, I still had the highlighting with the gold trim on the edges. In the areas where I could line highlight with grey, I did a combination of both the line highlight and the blending.
All in all, one of my favorite models so far.
