I am painting Black Legion now and I really like the job 'Eavy Metal did on it in GW's pictures. I'd like to make my gold similar, but I don't know the recipe. There was a masterclass article on Abaddon in WD 274 and Huron in 332, so I was wondering if someone who has those issues would be able to list the recipe for the gold trim here. I tried buying the issue on eBay, but the guy I bought from never responded to my emails (I didn't pay yet) so...plus, it'd take several days to get here anyway and I'm at the gold stage of my first models. So any help appreciated!
Basecoat of 2:3 mix of scorched brown and shining gold.
Layer over shining gold over the basecoat making sure to leave some in the recesses.
Shade the gold with a wash of brown ink. However devlan mud would be an ideal ,if not better, alternative
Then start highlighting by adding gradual amounts of mithril silver to shining gold.
Then they've given it a glaze using dark angels green, but thraka green could be used instead.
Hope that's what your're after!
sweet, thanks man! I'll try it on my test figure and see if it comes out the way I like it.
PS. Green galze, really? hmmm, I'll probably skipt that one, don't really want any green hues on these guys
Heh, I can understand, I just put it there as I didn't know if you wanted exact info or just the general idea.
Looking forward to seeing some of your work!
Also, you could use a different colour, as it can actually come up quite interesting, as I have found out. Mixing badab black and baal red and applying it in a near glaze consistency produces a cool bloody sheen on metal.
PS for Blackadder: love the signature, I believe I have seen it before somewhere, i just cant place it.....
"Then start highlighting by adding gradual amounts of mithril silver to shining gold."
hey, do they list how many steps and/or the final highlight mix?
I think i have that one, if you're still interested i think they did a step by step picture guide.
