Welcome to Librarium Online!
Just curious, but just HOW do get that wicked nice out lines on a SM Eagle Chrests? I am starting a Raven Guard army that is why i ask.
He speaks the truth.
Something that might be interesting is painting the whole eagle white, then painting in the center of each feather, and the grooves between, black, leaving a set of white outlines around each feather. Would be tricky, and time consuming, but might look pretty cool.

I've always done this:
I almost always paint my eagles a yellow/ gold color.
put the basic color down that you want the eagle to be.
apply a coat of thinned down(1ink:3water/thinner or 1:4) brown ink.
allow to dry. gently and lightly dry brush from top to down with yellow, which picks up
the edges of the eagle wings and such.
Highlight with skull white+yellow.
Takes a little practice
Looks great, and works.

WINDMILLS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY!
Use a white basecoat, a thinned down black ink and drybrush white on it. Maybe some white and icy blue mixture for some drybrushing to make certain highlights stand out a bit more.
Yeah, and as theyak said, take the strokes from top to bottom so the paint won't go in the recesses which you inked.
At least that's what I would do.
i just take my time stop finding short ways to do things as you will screw up, just go codex grey, fortress and the white, take a fine detail brush and PAY ATTENTION!

Ever thought of how cheese was found?:
