    Here are the beginnings for my Blood Ravens Army.

    Here are the 2.5 models that are done.

    Grenade Guy:


    Flaming Shoulder Pad ( with squad marking ):


    Chapter Marking ( Freehand)


    Bang!:


    Blood Raven V.2:


    Backpack:


    Freehand Chapter Marking:


    Heavy Bolter ( WIP ):







    The studs on his shoulder pad are going to be kill markings.

    C and C welcome.
    next up is the rest of the tactical squad and a converted captain with a relic blade and jump pack. Models are going to be based, soon.

    I have to say that the free hand work is done very well and clean. So far with what you have finished i am already interested into seeing what else you have to offer. What do you have planed for the basses?

    I really like your painting style - I'm going to call it gritty for lack of a better word, and the freehand is excellent. I have one suggestion though, which is based off of the pictures of your second marine.

    It looks like (and I could be wrong) that guy has some paint chipping off his foot, arm, and pouches and the bare plastic is showing, which suggests to me that you aren't using a primer before you paint. Primer will help the paint stick better and hopefully stop some of that chipping.

    Excellent work though, I'm looking forward to seeing more.

    PVA and sand. Then go over it with some greys for a nice city fight board. Desert bases can be easily done with a few brown drybrushes.

    They're good, just a few points though. Some sections the highlight is a bit bright or much in places - the bolter on the first one for example. The freehand is good, I just think it could do with a slight neatening up in places - the raven's wings in some look a little messy.
