Raptors Legion/Chapter debut and studying.

No real Riptide update I'm afraid but the matte varnish I finally settled on has arrived so I'll be able to get back to work on the Riptide sometime after Wednesday. Why Wednesday you ask? Well I'm studying for the Cisco Certified Network Professional (Routing and Switching) exams and I'm scheduled to take the switching exam on Wednesday. So lots of studying and very little hobby progress lately.

The Matte Varnish I settled on after some online research is.... Vallejo Polyurethane Satin Varnish and so far it's been great. I've only brushed it on but will try it through the airbrush later this week.

With the Riptide set to the side this past week, I was able to turn my attention (when not studying) to some of the Heresy MK III armor that I've had sitting around untouched for months. I've been dreaming of making a Raptors Legion/Chapter ever since I first read about them in Imperial Armour Three: Taros Campaign. They are a successor chapter of the Raven Guard.

See more about the Raptors Legion/Chapter at the Lexicanum

Also, If anyone has any Forge World Raptors items, Decals, Rhino doors, LR doors etc and you're willing to part with them.... please let me know. I can do $ and or trade depending on what you're after.

As always, CC is welcome and appreciated and thanks for looking!

All airbrush so far and before a Nuln Oil wash.
