In the armour and shield I´ve used boltgun, then badab black, then a bit of devlan mud to give the armour a more "dirty" look, and then I highlighted it with mithril silver.
And the two things I like more of this mini:

I´ve trimmed and filed off all the ultramarines symbols and I need to put a purity seal in the center of the torso, where de Ultramarines symbol was filed.
I´m going to use Telion´s head, which looks old, calm and experienced.

Some day I will be building four rhinos/razorbacks/whirlwinds.

Here you have a side view of the dude and how the white raven seems to be much brighter than it should be, I don´t know how to achieve this effect but I like it pretty much.
One of the things I like from my new miniatures is as simple as the use of Citadel´s Boltgun instead of Vallejo´s Chainmail, cause the Boltgun metallic colour has a "greased metal" look that I like pretty much, and because the citadel colour is pretty uniform when correctly painted, without bubbles or lumps and every ink you put in it seems to correctly place itself so it gets the most of the metallic colour.
There is the plasma cannon, is painted as ever, Vallejo Torquoise, highlighted with vallejo light turquoise, highlighted with vallejo green blue and with a white dot in the edges (yes, the "shoulder" needs some details, I know)
A detail of the right "kneepad" so you can see the freehand decoration around the skull.
The same for the left "kneepad" and the bit in the... Groin???

There is the big square of brass, which is different from the one in the other land raider.
The right side.
There is some details on the right side.

As you know, I´m a dreadnought fanboy, and I´m always ready to paint another one.
As you can see is totally equipped for close combat as it has the DCCW, the seismic hammer and a flamethrower and the assault grenades.
The metals are painted with the classical boltgun + badab black + mithril silver highlight.
A close view of the mechanicum symbol.
And a detail of the sarcophagus, this time, I´ve painted the visor as if it was some kind of "digital eye", just to give it a more sci-fi look.

A view from the left so you can see the square of etched-brassed RG iconography.
A close up of it.
And a right-side view, here you can see some details I added between the front door and the side door.
A close up of the details.
And this are the pair of side doors that came along with the Raven Guard LR kit, different one from the other, but both of them keeping the same laurel theme.

Thing is that I totally love Librarians, the feeling of a warrior-mage of the future is strongly appealing for me (as well as any warrior-mage, I love them) so libbys and seers are among my favourite miniatures/concepts of the whole 40k.
This case: This is the Chief librarian of the Red Scorpions, filed and slightly converted so it sports some Raven Guard iconography.
This libby is not an impressive miniature, but that is what I truly like about it, as I did with the Raven Guard FW dreadnought, his simplicity (compared with other guys, of course) is what makes them truly fit the sneaky and secretive chapter the Raven Guard is.
As you can see he is plenty decorated with turquoise coloured motifs, this will be the colour change I will be making in my librarians to make them apart from the regular dudes.
As you can see I´ve changed his book-topped backpack for a FW Raven Guard upgrade kit backpack, this is because he is a warrior, not a lectern and I really don´t like the backpack standarts and the like.
Here is where the red scorpions icon was, it was filed and I glued a Raven Guard icon from the Raven Guard etched brass from FW.
As you can see his eyelenses are blue too, libbies are the only troopers in my army that will not have red eyelenses, just to keep on with the libby theme.
What do you think about it??

A detail of the sarge, with the powerfist, as in the vanguard squad, he is the only one with a white tabard.
A detail of the right shoulderpad and the bolter (a bit blurry photo by the way), the whole squad bear the same markings on the bolter, the second squad will sport the raven claw marking.
A detail of the backpack.
A group shot of the whole squad.
Comments are welome.
