-WIP- Ravenwing Librarian on Jetbike

HELLO and welcome back from summer holidays!!!

As soon as i got back from vacation, i immediately started to work on my next model, the Ravenwing Librarian.

I wanted to break out of the standard, and i decided to create a jetbike instead of a regular motorcycle ...

I opened one of the three boxes of bits looking for an idea to start the project...

...and the first thing i noticed was the frame of a Dark Eldar Jetbike so i decided to start this mad project :)

Since the frame was very short i cut the air intake in order to add other components, and make the model a little bigger...

I built the handlebars and instrumentation using a Space Marine Auspex and the handle of heavy weapons

After that i glued a vox caster as a support for the ravenwing shield and i applied the handlebar previously built

At this point i cut a dreadnought bit and some eagle symbols from imperial city sprue and i glued everything in front of the jetbike frame and i also added a book from ravenwing upgrade sprue

I built the jetbike bottom using a dreadnough cable and a panel from a cyclone missile launcher

The librarian head comes from gray knights sprue...

After i've built all main components i fixed everything with adhesive mastic to see how it looks and i added some details and purity seals

(i didn't take pictures but for the rear engine i used a space marines jump pack)

...and that's the result!!!

Now it's time to paint! :D

Thanks for reading!!!!! :)


  1. wow, great conversion! Very good ideas! You inspired a follow dark angel player ^^

    But I got a question for you, how can you stay that "loyal" to your Dark angels in the face of the new sm codex ? I have a hard time not to put them on ebay and invest in a new army.

    1. Hey Thank you!!!
      Actually I painted almost all the armies of warhammer 40k space marines included :)
      So once the Ravenwing is completed, I believe that I will continue to paint my Salamanders :)



      PS: Do not sell the Dark Angels ... they are a beautiful chapter with a fascinating background! :)

  2. A really good idea.... Can I copy it? XD
    PS: do not sell the DAs or the Lion will have his revenge XD

    1. :D Thank you!!!

      Sure you can! ....and let me see how it went!!! :D

  3. Hey just wanted to know what model u used for the torso and legs? Was it the regular ravenwing biker model with the only change being the head?

    1. HEY! :)
      I used a Grey Knight torso and Ravenwing Sergeant legs.(i also glued a Dark Angel icon to the torso!)

  4. Thx I'm looking to do a similar thing with a librarian on a bike but didn't want to buy a standard librarian figure and butcher it
