@Imperator5 about your blood ravens. Chapters logo on the shoulders and banners are freehand? And are you using any wash at all? because your miniatures looks on those photos extremely flat.

Yeah, the plastic is weak and brittle, and the little notches on top that fit into the hole in the models have a bad habit of snapping off leaving you with a useless base and the hole sealed.

Chapter logo is not freehand but takes ages to make. I spend usually 2-3 days on it.

I use Thraka green for ork flesh, nuln oil (normal and glossy) for clothes and metallics, old Baal red for old blood stains, Blood for the Blood god for weapons, Ryza rust and Typhus corrosion for orks.

For the marines I use just the tiniest hint of glossy nuln oil on weapons sometimes. I want to display them as shiningly clean and knightly, and Baal Red did not gave me good results when I tried it. Honestly SM surfaces are flat and there are very little use for washes except if you want to make them battle worn.

I have to disagree, well applied washes can be all you need for painting marines. Testing out different methods for painting my pre-heresy Imperial Fists, by far the easiest and best looking method was a carefully wash of Seraphim Sepia over white, followed by several washes of Cassandora Yellow, and then just highlighted and glazed. Easy, consistent, and looks great

I just prefer the clean surfaces with them, I tend to compensate for this by putting on as much detail as I can.

Golden decorations, metallic parts, whatever works.

I'm gonna come down in support of washes. there's a lot of little detail on marine minis that really need a wash to be highlighted well

Here is the Dark Talon. I finished it this evening so I won't be able to check it for tiny errors until tomorrow.

Knight Heraldor. Maybe he is the most fragile and not the greatest fighter of stormcast heros but his big trumpet is really annoying.

Knight Vexillor. Really expensive and weak fighter but his banner makes miracles.

Slaughterpriest. He is such a great fighter that he can't even best Knight Heraldor in the fair fight and his prayers are unreliable but potent to be sure.

They look very nicely painted. The sword is cool however that trumpet and sicklemoon and globe flag is just so elf. Sorry. Aelff. The standard could be easily fixed by putting on a head of a hammer or something else that's Sigmary.

I always wanted to make a Librarian Dreadnought Azariah Vydia for my Blood Ravens. I thought the Blood Angel one looked stupid so that was off the table.

I wanted something with a giant shield and a force sword with a psycannon on the wrist and thought I could convert a Contemptor or a Leviathan Dreadnought for it.
Now this is almost perfect!
