    [Tale of Painters] Raven Guard

    Yep, that's right everyone. LN is attempting an army semi-seriously! Don't have any heart attacks...

    Raven Guard has been my favorite SM chapter for a very long time. I love the fluff behind them, and I also love the inspiration behind them - Edgar Allen Poe and the Raven and all that stuff. So, I buckled down, bought a Nox Arcana album based off of Poe's work, "Shadow of the Raven," and now I'm attempting Raven Guard for the Tale of Painters. Here's to hoping I can do it.

    First, the list.

    Raven Guard - 2000 points

    Traits
    • Blessed Be The Warriors
    • No Mercy, No Respite
    • Flesh Over Steel
    HQ

    Shrike
    @175 points

    Captain with Storm Bolter, Power Weapon, Auspex, Infiltrate
    3 Command Marines with Bolters, Infiltrate
    2 Command Marines with Lascannons, Infiltrate
    1 Veteran Sergeant with T. Honours, Power Fist, Infiltrate
    1 Apothecary with Bolter, Infiltrate
    @333 points


    Elites

    7 Assault Marines with Furious Charge
    2 Assault Marines with Flamers
    1 Veteran Sergeant with T. Honours, Power Fist, Furious Charge
    @292 points

    7 Assault Marines with Furious Charge
    2 Assault Marines with Plasma Pistols
    1 Veteran Sergeant with T. Honours, Power Fist, Furious Charge
    @290 points

    1 Venerable Dreadnought with Heavy Flamer, Extra Armour
    @140 points


    Troops

    5 Scouts with Bolters
    1 Scout with Missile Launcher
    @88 points

    5 Scouts with Bolters

    @88 points

    5 Scouts with Sniper Rifles
    1 Scout with Heavy Bolter
    @114 points

    7 Tactical Marines with Bolters
    1 Tactical Marine with Melta Gun
    1 Tactical Marine with Heavy Bolter
    1 Veteran Sergeant with T. Honours, Power Fist
    @195 points

    7 Tactical Marines with Bolters
    1 Tactical Marine with Melta Gun
    1 Tactical Marine with Heavy Bolter
    1 Veteran Sergeant with T. Honours, Power Fist
    @195 points


    Fast Attack

    3 Drop Pods (Tactical Squad 1 and 2, Dreadnought)
    @90 points


    Total Points: 2000
    The list is themed in two ways. First, I am sticking true to Raven Guard fluff - the only thing that might seem truly out of place is the Venerable Dreadnought. They are uncommon, but existent, in a Raven Guard force. The second theme is that of Shrike's night-striking cadre, relying on Scouts and a smaller force of "recon" Marines (led by one of Shrike's lieutenants) to oversee them, backed up by Drop Pods and Assault Marines. Overall I like the theme.

    I plan on painting the Assault Marines, Shrike, the Tactical Marines, the Dreadnought, and the Drop Pods in mostly standard Raven Guard colors, as they are the quick-strike force and don't necessarily rely on stealth. The Scouts and the "recon" Command Squad will be painted in some version of night camouflage that I have yet to experiment with.

    So, here's my tentative painting schedule. Note that month 1's lower point value is due to lack of funds and based on models I already own:

    Month 1
    2 Assault Marines with Bolt Pistol/CCW, Furious Charge
    2 Assault Marines with Plasma Pistols/CCW, Furious Charge
    1 Veteran Sergeant with T. Honours, Bolt Pistol, Power Fist, Furious Charge
    165 points

    Month 2
    7 Tactical Marines with Bolters
    1 Tactical Marine with Melta Gun
    1 Tactical Marine with Heavy Bolter
    1 Veteran Sergeant with T. Honours, Power Fist
    195 points

    Month 3
    6 Assault Marines with Bolt Pistol/CCW, Furious Charge
    1 Veteran Sergeant with T. Honours, Bolt Pistol, Power Fist, Furious Charge
    205 points

    Month 4
    Shrike
    1 Apothecary with Bolter, Infiltrate
    218 points

    Month 5
    5 Scouts with Bolters
    1 Scout with Missile Launcher
    5 Scouts with Sniper Rifles
    1 Scout with Heavy Bolter
    202 points

    Month 6
    6 Assault Marines with Bolt Pistol/CCW, Furious Charge
    2 Assault Marines with Flamers, Furious Charge
    214 points

    Month 7
    Venerable Dreadnought with Heavy Flamer, Extra Armour
    2 Drop Pods
    200 points

    Month 8
    7 Tactical Marines with Bolters
    1 Tactical Marine with Melta Gun
    1 Tactical Marine with Heavy Bolter
    1 Veteran Sergeant with T. Honours, Power Fist
    195 points

    Month 9
    3 Command Marines with Bolters, Infiltrate
    2 Command Marines with Lascannons, Infiltrate
    1 Veteran Sergeant with T. Honours, Power Fist, Infiltrate
    205 points

    Month 10
    Captain with Storm Bolter, Power Weapon, Auspex, Infiltrate
    5 Scouts with Bolters
    1 Scout with Missile Launcher
    1 Drop Pod
    203 points

    This should be good, I've always wanted to see a Raven Guard army painted well.

    Such humility! (Now send it off to be painted by Blue Table and then claim it as your own.)

    Lost Nemesis commits to an army?

    WHAT?

    Next thing you'll be telling me that people will stop wearing shellsuits and consider mullets unfashionable.

    *Fluffs Mullet*

    Enough with the crazy talk, K. We all know that Mullets are forever sexy.

    I like the list, LN. Looking forward to seeing your work.

    If ever I sent an army to someone to be painted, it would be sent to minus_t. Kuffy comes close after that, but most of the good painters on LO paint far too... generically, for my taste. -t has a distinct style that I wish I could pull off, because it is fantastic.

    LN, even if it is not that great, it will be better than any RG army I have ever seen. The only ones I have ever seen is by people who are really..how do I say..newbish at painting so it doesn't look good, so this will be a good change of pace. Good luck man! I'll be checking up on you often, as to make sure you don't stray... like I know I will...
