    Might sound insane to mess up probably the best looking models in the game but scar the armour if you want, and try to load up on purity seals. Make them look tattered and old. Good advice from Kaine.

    Tin Bitz is a great way to darken the metal and make them look old

    Personally I wouldn't scar the armour, unless you want a war torn / weatherbeaten look, which I don't think suits grey knights. A good way of making the armour look old is to use a mix of dwarf broze, highlighted by shining gold, highlighted by burnished gold. Then washed with brown ink and highlighted by a mix of burnished and shining gold. This is what I did on my nemesis force weapon gold parts, and if you do it well, it looks great.

    Adding purity seals might be a good idea, or try to add a dark color like purple/dark red to contrast the bronze/gold. This will make your models look elite and old.
    It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong.

    Who are you to judge what is sane and what is not??
