Hi all

Just wondering if anyone has seen or have tried to paint a Sanguinary guard stormraven?

Well basically a gold stormraven so it fits in a Sanguinary guard army.

Cheers,
BB

No, but it's my experience than Gold doesn't make the greatest color for large scale models like the Stormraven. I run Dante and Sang Guard, and their Raven is standard Red, and the Death Company ride in one that's black with appropriate red X's and white skulls.

I would do red with gold paneling on the doors and wings etc. to bling it up a bit. Whole gold? Not so much. I'm sure it could be done, it would just be an uber pain :D

There are some really good gold spray paints that can be used to apply a smooth, consistent color with little effort. You would need to be really careful painting the details, but it seems like this would be a good way to go.

If you really hate yourself, you should go full tilt and get some NMM action going. :)

I'm waiting for Corbulo's personal flying ambulance:)

As the others said a fully golden Stormraven will be a bit too much (like the what they do in the TV show Trick my Truck :)) but a golden and red stormraven will look IMO very good.

NMM storm ravens look great, but I'm 30 hours in to mine (grey knights) and it's only about 1/3 done...

Gold actually looks better than silver (IMO) so Weapons engines and insignia are in gold on mine.

It is doable, but lengthy. Ultatelu worth it I feel.
