I guess this might be also in the Painting section, but since it's mostly associated with fluff, here goes.
According to fluff, would the Land Raider used in a Deathwing army be Dark Angels colors (Green) or Deathwing colors (White)?
This has probably been asked before, but it's not on the the first couple of pages, so...
Live for the Swarm!
I would think they carry deathwing colors indeed.
I am honestly only guessing, but since transports always suit the units they carry in color (e.g. death company rhinos are death company colors) I have a feeling that I'm right. I have also already seen land raiders painted in deathwing white, but never one in dark angels green yet.
It would largely depend on where the Raider came from.
If it's a 1st Company vehicle then yeah, it should be in Deathwing bone. But what if you've got a squad of Deathwing working with another company?? They can't send a Raider with every squad, so if they're going to have a ride it most likely has to be drawn from the chapter's motor pool, which would be done up in standard DA Green.
So your choice, really - either way is valid, but a pure Deathwing force should logically be using Deathwing Raiders.
According to the Dark Angels Codex on page 15 both types, and all land raiders in the chapter are in the Deathwing Company (none in the armoury).
But look on page 69 and you will see two land raiders, one green, one deathwing bone. So from my take on the codex, you can paint them either colour.
For purposes of fluff i like the idea of painting the Land Raider green and saying it belongs to a memeber of the inner circle. Azreals personal land raider, Ezeikels, an interrogator chaplains, a librarians etc. So if you are taking any HQ from the inner circle group then i think the fluff would support the green colour scheme.
If you really want a bone white landraider in your force then there's no issue there - Land Raiders do come from the Deathwing.
