This took way longer than I thought, and in the end I had to rush it through to make sure I finish it and that it doesn't end up in my burgeoning KIV pile :)
I realized that this is actually the first ever Land Speeder that I've done. My previous encarnations of the Ravenwing were all exclusively bike armies, and I never got around to painting the old Master of the Ravenwing Land Speeder model before the jetbike version came out.
I assembled 3 of these, making up 1 squad, and I also realized that I had 2 versions of the kit. 1 was the old one with the issue of the warped hull. The other 2 were from newer sprues that solved that issue. And I must say I enjoy those better.
The crew helmets and Ravenwing shoulder pads are actually extras from the Black Knights. No, these aren't Black Knight speeders - I just think they look better :). The Ravenwing icon on the front hull is from the Dark Angels vehicle sprue, I think.
I must admit painting this I remembered why it took so long to finish my Ravenwing army in the first place. Painting black is not the most exciting thing on earth. Conceptually, it should be fast and easy, but hey ... So it's pretty basic - Citadel black spray, Shadow Grey line highlight - up to Space Wolves Grey. Mechrite Red missiles, Gunmetal on the metal parts, Gold on the heavy bolter ammo. Agrax wash for the metal parts. The insides of the jet nozzles got an extra blackwash. Standard decals. Done.
But what's being organized right now are 11 IG models + heavy weapons: 6 heavy weapon crewmen, 3 autocannon (plus 3 heavy bolters that I can switch to if need be), 2 heavy flamer men, 2 snipers, 1 Major Winters with bolter. Now that sounds like a very tempting distraction :)
Keep rolling them dice.
