On page 48 of the Necron Codex, there is a picture of a Lord with a Warcythe. The edge of the WS has what look like very fine black lines painted on it from the thick part of the edge to the edge itself, as if the weapon has been roughly ground. I love that effect, but my own attempts have been pathetic. If anyone knows what I'm talking about, do you have any advice about how to achieve this effect? Even my smallest brush seems too large to work, leaving me with horrible, thick lines.
Perhaps you are approaching it the wrong way?
Have you tried a wash of thinned down black - dark enough to give colour but thin enough to spread easily and then instead of trying to highlight the black onto the blade, highlight the blade from the black, leaving a thin line in the desired area?
You will need to use several coats of thinned paint to do this with any accuracy I should imagine.

Whenever I need to create fine lines, such as your Warscythe requires, I use a safety pin. Dip in in paint and stroke gently. The tip is sharp enough to create very small lines.. so you'll have to do it several times to widen your line, if needed.
Hope that helps ;Y

Exactly what I was looking for. I'll try it tonight. Thanks!
Just a continuation from what twohats said, just be careful that you don't scratch through the paint onto the metal!
Its pretty easy to do, so just keep it in mind.
But I call to God, and the LORD saves me.
I don't think that there is an easy way around developing a steady hand and using a fine brush...
