Build a Stormraven Part 01: Painting the inside
Ok, so I'm FINALLY posting my walk through of the building and painting of my Blood Angels Stormraven. So, obviously I unsprued things and filed down all the mold lines etc. I decided to actually paint the inside of this thing (for some reason). First I black primered the interior (not the outside). Then I used Boltgun Metal to pretty much coat the entire interior (Space Marines are into interior design so much). I used the Black Ink (Badab black?) with a half water half ink mix and washed the hole interior. Then i did a dry brush of Boltgun Metal again to get rid of the "watermarks". For the walkway ramps, I also did a wash of Devlan Mud to show where the Marines would trudge dirt and grime everwhere when they embark and disembark.
Next step, I used Scorched Brown on the leather seats and highlighted with Bestial Brown. Gold parts were based with Shining Gold, highlighted with Burnished Gold and then a little bit of Mithril Silver on the points.
For the tv monitors, on a base of Black, I blended up Regal Blue, then Ultramarine Blue and then Ice Blue going Black in the upper left of the monitor to the lightest blue in the lower right. I put a few dabs of White to give a shiney look. I didnt have the Glossy Varnish when I painted these but I would use that in the future after the monitor is done.
For the Red buttons/monitors, I blended up from black with the Mechrite Red Foundation paint and Blood Red adding White dots for the shiny specular reflection.
