Since I think Im starting a GrayKnights force Im now looking for the ultimate painting tutorial. I have seen the one on GWs web. Do anyone of you know where I can find a really good painting tutorial?
I would suggest searching LO's painting section and asking for help there, if this is the first army your painting.
Legion Of Everblight: Abyslonia
Protectorate of Menoth: Grand Exemplar Kreoss
You mean, for Grey Knights specifically? Or just painting in general?
For the Knights, I followed the one on the GW Web site, and I was pretty pleased with how they came out. I don't know of any other GK painting tutorials, but like Path said, check out the painting forum for that.
As for general painting tutorials, I've found BrushThralls to be an excellent place to get ideas and tips. These guys are absurdly good painters and modelers. I'd recommend reading through:
Miniatures 101 - Good general tips on modeling, though it's kinda long.
Miniatures 102 - Shading and Highlighting. This was super helpful for me.
Miniatures 103 - Putting it all together. Takes you through painting a whole mini.
I wish I'd read through those before I started painting my army. Now my newer minis look significantly better than my old ones =). I'm dreading going back and 'fixing' the old ones to look like the newer models .
Oh, and if you want to put names on all your GK's shoulder pads, I'd highly recommend a fine point art pen like this one. Unless you've got a extremely steady hand with a tiny tiny brush, this'll save some frustration =).
Hope that's somewhat helpful!

No its not my first army. I know how to paint, sort of:party2:. Thats why Im looking for a more expert tutorial for gray knigths than GW's. I'll ask in the paint forum. I just thought there might be a perfekt GK painting-tutorial that everyone knew about.
The background for this question is: I had been painting tyranids for some time when I discovered that there existed some really nice tutorials that gave me a lot of good ideas that I wished I had read before starting to paint my army.
