Welcome to Librarium Online!
I have seen the Gray Knights painting tutorial on GW’s site, but Im not completely satisfied. Do you people know where I could find some good tips/tutorials for painting Daemonhunter Gray Knights?
Didn't you post this exact thread like three days ago, and get responses? I'm going to assume that you have somehow forgotten that you did so, and link you your old thread so you can see it again.
I don't know if you got what you were looking for at all in that thread, but I don't know that reposting your thread every three days will get you any kind of different result. Good luck!
When you say you're not completely satisfied you mean the GW tutorial is too simplistic?
I read in the above thread that you have painted a few figures in the past, so I can understand where you're coming from with that comment. But what specifically are you wanting to know more about?
Don't restrict yourself to looking at Grey Knight tutorials if you're looking for tips. You'll find plenty of painting tips and ideas in other tutorials. It's all about the techniques, and making them your own. Don't be afraid to be creative and try things.
But most importantly, don't be afraid to share your work. I know very often modellers, particularly when starting out, are afraid to share their work for fear of criticism. But remember, we were all beginners once. And trust me, there are few critics tougher than oneself - well maybe SWMBO
Best of luck, and show us some of your work... then we can point you in the right direction to help :happy:

Looks okay to me. Looks like you've used metallics for the armour?
If you want to tone it down a bit I'd say try a black ink wash. Rather do a series of very thin washes than one very thick one. Also, I find adding a drop of white glue (like Elmers) to the mix dulls it down as well enhances the gathering qualities.
The alternative is to try that NMM technique many folks are trying these days... Maybe I'm just getting old, but that's just a concept I am struggling to grasp
BTW, on the GW site there are 2 SBS's on painting an Eldar Autarch by GW staff. In the one the painter paints some silver and gold bits... he does it on reasonably small pieces, but the same technique and paint "recipes" can be used on bigger bits... here you go: http://oz.games-workshop.com/games/4...C/autarch2.htm
Ok, here is the finished mini with those small but important extra details added.
Next time I think I will only highlight the edges of the armor plates and wait with the blue-grey wash until after that, and making it amass on the large surfaces. That should make the armor pieces look more gray/blue but still keeping them rich in contrast. Much like the GK termie on this well known book:
That is really nice work, congratulations on making such a nice miniature. You, sir, should make a Grey Knight painting tutorial! 8Y
Thanks for your comments!
Ill take some photos while painting my next mini. Maybe I will find the time to write something up.
