So for my campaign army next year, it's white Power Armoured renegades. Now.... for the characters and sergeants I will be following ~t's guide to the tee (geddit?), but how can I speed up the painting of the tactical marines?
Also, using the same technique, how would I paint a dreadnought (or 4.....) or indeed any vehicle white? Considering I like highlights and that could be challenging. It's not a colour I have much experience with.
Help appreciated =) I will try a test model soon
Mr. ~t himself told me, for a simplified method of the one he wrote for me up in his guide, to basically just do the same thing only in fewer steps. He also produced me a super-fast picture of a Marine done that way, that he said didn't take him all that long at all, so that would be my first suggestion; go by the guide, but use fewer steps. Just get the main shading down and then go to white.
*internet senses tingling...*
Someone mentioned me in a thread!
Yes, try working with fewer layers, alternatively try using the new washes over a white prime, I think that could work well.
Spray white, paint thinned down Asurmen Blue, then layer white once or twice.
Nice and quick.
As far as vehicles, probably the best thing (for speed) to do would be to simply 'blackline' the recesses with thinned shadow grey.
Nice and simple.
Alternatively (long way round), treat each panel of the vehicle as a seperate plane for highlighting, and work from shadow grey/space wolf grey at the bottom, to pure white at the top.
This may take aproximately forever.

Aha. Thanks for the advice folks. Well, I am going to do two test models I think. One for speed white. And the other for detail. I think I will just paint two torsos. In addition I will go get a spare rhino door, and try that.
However, I will need paints. Meaning I shall have to wait until the weekend. At least.
Thanks for the advice. I think I might do the forever method on the Venerable dreadnought.
Thanks for the advice, keep it coming.
I'm in the process of finding my camera (wife took it probably..grr) but I prime white.. then use a p3 paint that is an "off white" which between skull white and bleached bone.. then use skull white over flat areas... and it looks pretty well shaded. the "off white" really takes the edge off of the sepia wash. If i can remember the name of the paint (laying on the couch so im too lazy to go look) then I'll let ya know...
