Welcome to Librarium Online!
Basically I have 1 Destroyer Lord, 2 Wraiths, and 2 Scarab Swarm bases and Im going to come up with a colour scheme for them. *
I have two Necron Warriors to test them on*.
Basically I want to do a weathered SILVER scheme to a high standard.. These are the paints I'lle use for the Necrons [so I have to have all the colours here]
-Badab Black [wash]
So their the colours I have to work with - remember I was a Silver theme if you can just come up with some steps on how to paint them it would be appreciated!
Some ideas could be a dark brown basecoat (or mixed with some silver to get a tin bits like color, though i think bronze is better for that...)
Anyway after the brown drybrush the darker metal and wash with badab black highlight with silver to your liking.
A few things that you don't have that could make it easier would be Bolt gun metal tinbits and delvan mud, then i would say tin bits base then bolgun metal drybrush wash delvan mud, possibly badab black also, and highlight chainmail or bolt gun to taste.
For a more interesting look you could throw in some non metallic colors like bone to accent such as a white face, maybe the hands/fore arms and lower legs/feet.
hope this helps
There are two ways to do it. Basically it comes down to whether you want to start with "clean" metal, and "distress" it, or start with the "rust" and add metal? For the former, just start with chainmail, do a heavy Badab Black wash, then highlight with Mithril Silver. For the latter, start with scorched brown or black, then drybrush and stipple your metal color, preferably chainmail, all over it, slowly building up the metal until you have an effect you like.
Personally, I use the first method, but either will work.
Good luck, and post pics!
Im not acutually doing rust, since for me it makes no sence see the Necrons can self-repair themselves.
I'm thinking of this - Chaos Black primer, chainmail drybrush, chainmail drybrush, chainmail drybrush, babad black wash, chainmail highlight. Then I'lle give them bone/white faces.
If you don't want them looking too aged, I'm not sure a drybrush will be right for you, as the point of drybrushing metallic onto black is to leave a lot of black showing, which suggests areas where the metal has oxidized over time. If you want a cleaner looks, a la the future battlefield sequences from the "Terminator" movies, you really ought to consider either just straight painting on the metallics, rather than drybrushing, leaving black in the recesses, or just basecoating the whole thing in metallics, then using washes to shade them.
Heres what Im looking for, this kind of style: http://www.tcpaintingstudios.com/Ima...ture%20056.jpg or http://miniatures.griffingrove.com.a...th%20Front.jpg.
How would I paint this?
Reps will be given!
I would say those are basecoated Chaos Black, lightly painted with Mithril Silver, and then perhaps a light black wash. The key is to not paint the silver too thick. This will leave trace brush strokes which will give you the effect I think you're looking for.
