How to paint the Ravenwing Bike Squadron
- Step 1: Base Coat – Bikes and Space Marine Bodies
Begin by painting both the bikes and the bodies of the Space Marines with Abaddon Black. Ensure you cover these areas evenly.
- Step 2: Layer – Bikes and Space Marine Bodies
To add depth and highlights, layer the previously black-painted surfaces with Eshin Grey. Focus on raised areas and edges for a polished appearance.
- Step 3: Dark Angel Wings
Paint the Dark Angel wings with Corax White to create a base coat. Make sure to apply it evenly across the wings.
- Step 4: Layer – Dark Angel Wings
Layer the wings with White Scar to add highlights and a sense of depth. Concentrate on the feathered details.
- Step 5: Mounted Weapons and Eye Lenses
For the mounted weapons and eye lenses, use Mephiston Red to give them a striking and bold color. Ensure a smooth application.
- Step 6: Sword and Metallic Components
Paint the sword carried by one of the Space Marines and other metallic components like exhausts with Leadbelcher. This will create a metallic and reflective appearance.
- Step 7: Parchments and Clothing Elements
For the parchments and various clothing elements, such as robes, use Zandri Dust or Screaming Skull. Be precise when painting these details to make them stand out.
- Step 8: Base Coat – Bases
Consider using texture paints like Astrogranite Debris or Armageddon Dunes to create realistic terrain effects on the bases. Apply the chosen texture paint evenly across the bases.
- Step 9: Varnishing
To protect your beautifully painted Ravenwing Bike Squadron, consider applying a varnish. A matte varnish like Stormshield provides a protective layer without altering the finish. Ensure the miniatures are entirely dry before varnishing.
