Hello fellow Lo'ers,
I come from the shadows of the warp to call upon your aid once more. Anyway, I need help with painting the metal on my Grey Knights ( which I am yet to acquire ). I wanted to go with the classic metal scheme but with a little more flare.
Something like this: Linky
It looks like a dark metal (tin bitz?) higlighted with boltgun and mthril silvers and glazed blue. Just wanted to know if anyone had any experience with this kind of metallics and had a few tips.
I do not have much experience in metallics apart from the standard drybrush and wash so i'm a noob in that area of painting.
Add me! Let me know your forum name too! =)
Depends if you want a quick drybrush that looks good--- black, drybrush chaos metal, boltgun, chainmail (mithril optional) and washes of black/blue to show the shadows... or layering which will look cleaner and more... neat. I would go with DBing so that it doesn't look straight off of the forge production line and more like a hardened warrior fighting day and (SK)night.
My Grey Knight recipe is:
Base coat black.
Boltgun Metal the entire model.
Use black ink watered down with water (2 parts ink, 1 part water) and ink the whole model.
Now use blue ink and repeat the above step.
Dry brush the model in Boltgun Metal, leave crevices.
Dry brush with Chainmail on top.
Highlight the extreme edges with Mithril Silver.
The gold is:
Chaos black where you want gold.
Dry brush with Tin Bitz.
Dry brush with Burnished Gold.
Dry brush with Shining Gold.
My storm bolters are red but the special weapons are gold/silver/black. My coats of arms are red/white/black. I've done glowing eyes that are blue. My NFWs are either Green/Blue/Yellow depending on rank.
It looks good for me, silver but muted, not shiny.
I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand
