    Cool Effect, tarnished copper

    Not sure if many people have tried this, but a cool paint scheme I came up with involves scaly green and [EDIT]Brazen Brass. Basically paint the model scaly and lightly dry brush dwarven bronze over it. I did this on my Raptors and turned out pretty cool. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

    I'ld assume that that woulg give more of a bronze, although the active greening component of bronze is indeed coper. When I think copper I think of more of a blue tone than that and copper is warmer than bronze.
    Yep it can look nice, how about some close up pics though?
    Up, up and away!

    An easier method is to just paint it bronze, then apply Vallejo Verdigris over it.
    If you think Mathammer doesn't work and dice cannot be predicted, there's a whole field of mathematics called probability that would like to disagree.

    I like the Vallejo Verdigris. Personally I have found that adding a light green ink glaze makes for a stronger appearance though not as "realistic".

    The first pic has a light glaze of the vallejo verdigris over bronze.



    The eagle on the left and the Post on the Right have the verdigris as well as a green ink glaze. I think it looks better.



    At any rate. It is good stuff!

    Cheers,

    That sounds awesome. Would look good on a miniature as well.

    I usually use a base coat of tin bitz, then mix in boltgun into that, and highlight as normal, up to close to mithril silver, then wash it with scaly green and scorched brown at 50:50.

    Then you can re highlight if you want, or just leave it at that. Tends to take the edge of the metallic colours, and gives it that paler french/italian painter look.

    Kinda, I let the green show through more. gives it a translucent effect. Also, I made a mistake, I used Brazen brass, not Dwarven bronze.
