The next big Primarch project is Corvus Corax, Primarch of the Raven Guard Legion of Space Marines. As with all the Primarchs I’ve worked on, he and his base are very detailed, and very complicated to construct.
Like the previous Primarchs, I’m working on his base first. His base (the first pic) is a rise of twisted concrete and metal, buckling under his feet as he lands. A nice split Imperial Eagle alludes to the civil war of the Horus Heresy. The rusted girders and reinforcements serve to break up the general grey color scheme. The tiled surface gets a bit of a beige highlight to differentiate it from the broken concrete.
The perch fits into a 50mm scenic base that hides its own 40mm base (second pic). The colors are the same as the normal base. Corax’s scenic base will eventually feature a Traitor Marine being blasted by Corax as he lands. This will come later.
Corax is a complicated piece, so I’ll paint him in stages, just like the other Primarchs. More to come!
