I need some help with painting my DK if anyone is nice enough to share their techniques.
I'm one that likes to paint as the box cover looks lol.
Anyways, my BIGGEST issue is the lettering. I got some Shining Gold, but that shit sucks for dry brushing on the letters. Its either to thick and gets to the parts i dont want, or its barely visible... like wtf? Getting me really rattled.
If you mean the relief lettering, I just paint the letters and the "trench" they're in, then wash over it with black ink several times. The ink falls down in the holes, and the letters stay bright. Is it perfect? Hell no. But it's about a million times faster than drybrushing.
Dwarf Bronze the lettering and crevices,
Devlin Mud wash.
Shining gold lightly on the letters.

Yes I like purple wash or ogryn flesh wash over gold.
To get the armour I painted the plates with chainmail mixed with 5% Enchanted blue. Then layer over pure chainmail on the upper parts of each plate and finally top edge them with mythril. Deep crevices and bolts can be exagerated with a blue wash carefully applied in those areas to keep the shine elsewhere.

Yeah gold can be a bit funny at times.
My process goes a bit like this.
Shining Gold (solid drybrush)
Wash with either watered down scorched brown (duller gold) or chestnut ink (warmer gold)
Shining Gold (just on prominant areas)
Shining Gold / Mitheral Silver highlight 1
Shining Gold / Mitheral Silver highlight 2 (this with a bit more silver than the last and a thinner highlight.)
Much must be risked in war.
