Corvus Cabal

Thanks to the team at Swansea Comics and Games Convention (where I will be a guest speaker for the 2020 event) I was sent a box of the Games Workshop Warcry Corvus Cabal warband to paint and give away in a raffle.

Yes those guys up top you can win!

But for those of you wanting to know how I painted them well here is the guide. The best bit is that I used just Citadel Paints and predominantly the recent Contrast Paints.

The first step is to prime the models using Wraithbone. You could use Grey Seer to give a cooler overall tone to the paint scheme.

Next to paint the flesh Guilliman Flesh was used. This can be done a few times to get varying skins tones that are lighter or darker. You can of course opt for any other flesh tones from the same range.

The trousers are painted using Space Wolf Grey and the feathers were painted using Warp Lightning.

Next the bird skulls and any bone was painted using Skeleton Horde, with Leadbelcher.

Leather straps and accessories were painted using Snakebite Leather, and hair with Black Templar, and wood with Wyldwood. Also the bases were painted Shyish Purple. The reason for painting the bases at this point was to get an overall feel for the paint scheme was going and if I needed to apply any washes to rebalance the paint scheme in terms of warmth.

A simple wash of Nuln Oil was applied to the metallic areas. The dangling bird feet got a wash of Volupus Pink. The bases were edged in XV-88.

With a drybrush of Wraithbone on the texture of the bases, and the application of grass tufts, plus any tidying up where the contrast missed (a brown wash is good for this as it is just shadow) the model is complete, ready for the battlefield. The whole warband painted in batches (so paint all the skin on all models first, and then when the first is dry, you can start the feathers etc), can be done in about 15 hours (give or take while watching your favorite movies and tv!).

Of course I have taken things a few steps further, using highlights on the model to accentuate the details.
