I'm about to repaint my Warriors of Chaos soon, and I'm working on a test model atm. I have an idea about how the armour is supposed to look, but I have not yet managed to achieve my idea. I want the armour to be painted in a certain color and at some places I want the color to be "scraped off" by battle damage.
How would you guys do to paint this?
Hey, there's a fantastic article here: How to paint chipped armour / battle damage - MiniWarGaming
It shows you how to add battle damage to yellow armor, but the technique can be altered for any coloured armor pretty easily.
Hope this is what you're looking for
Thank you so much! I tried it and it looks awesome!
Rep for you
Other thing you could try doing would be Sponge weathering, it is incredibly simple and comes up with great results.
Basically paint on your base colour and highlight as you deem necessary.
Then cut some of the sponge from a blister pack or some other sponge type that is fairly fine. Dab that in the colour you have used to shade or the "base" colour (eg: for a yellow use a brown), then wipe off most of the paint (similar to drybrushing) then just push the sponge onto the armour you want to weather.
How hard you push will determine how much paint is left on the model.
Then after that colour use some boltgun metal in a similar method and then give the area a wash with devlan mud or badab black to dull the metal, or leave it shiny if you want to show like new metal.
I painted the damage on this Ork Nob using the above.
