Ah, finally, back to models. I have been busy working on my articles an Books 1, 2 and 3 from FW, as well as some Alpha Legion, but today sees a return to my Raven Guard...
Lets take a look at some Legion Heavy Support in the form of Devastators. I love these guys, and having everyone equipped with heavy weapons makes sense. As I don't get to touch MK III a lot with the Raven Guard, these guys were fun, as the trim allows me to add a little extra colour. I magnetised their weapons so I can swap between the two at any time, but I have to say, I am so happy with how the plasma turned out, I might just use them all the time. You decide.
I have softly blued the barrel tips with some Guilliman glaze, and the plasma are just three levels of drybrushing with white over the top. No airbrushing at all on these guys except for the light dusting on their feet/lower legs.
I haven't actually settled on a lens colour yet for the lascannons, so I am open to suggestions...
The Sgt was a fun extra bit. I wanted him to stand out, but without using a crested helm or a paint stripe, so I used the GW 40K Tac Squad 'Bane' face. Batman is screwed now! Also, I decided on a different plasma cannon, as if the Sgt has the more unique wargear, and the binoculars hint at him leading his troops and picking targets.
I used small black decals to apply numbers to the weapons (in this case, 3) so I can identify which weapons belong to which chap.
So there you have it, Devastators in a nut shell. Hope you enjoy,
