So I finally finished the Shadow Captain I started back in November. Along the way however he’s gone through a few changes as a result of new models coming. Though I really liked the look I’d come up with, the Blood Angel Chaplain and Dark Fury Forgeworld models both had pieces that I really loved and wanted to add to this guy. As a result, he now sports a new jumpack and lightening claws. I also swapped out one shoulder pad for a more ornate version from Forgeworld.
Now I expect a bit of critiscim on the color scheme, I know that the official fluff and images always give command guys like him White arms and helmets. I however find that to be a rather odd choice for a stealthy army like the Raven Guard, and I’ve just never been a fan. Instead, I limited to pure white to the Raven symbols. Then I did all of the wings in a two tone, using gun metal with a silver trim. This guys is basic black other the picking out the braiding in dark red and the Purity Seals. The only other real accent is the blue glaze on the claws, which really makes them pop.
I’m really looking forward to getting some more Raven Guard done so I can try them out on the table.
