    Advice White Battle sisters armor<

    Hi

    Im thinking change my battle sisters scheme until the release of the new codex ( someday....someday.....).


    I want try white armor with warlock purple robes but i have a doubt to apply a good white coat.

    I have read some post about start with black undercoat, grey basecoat and 2-3 layers of white skull, but i also have read the gamesworkshop white scars tutorial where they apply white and more white layers.


    My question is, based on personal experience wich method you choose to paint white sisters power armor ? Or maybe other?


    Thx

    Depending on your shade either start with s layer of graveyard earth or astronomican grey and you should get a good White onto that. Definitely thin your white though and apply a few layers.

    Either that or spray white, wash with shadow grey then another layer of white either painted or drybrushed for texture.

    Did my seraphim white..

    The most important rule is.. UNDERCOAT WITH GREY.

    That saves you about 5 coats

    I then washed with devlan mud, base coated using dheneb stone and then gradually added white until going pure white at the end.

    Much quicker than when I undercoated black and spent a day applying layer after thin layer of stone... grrr

    Have fun, scheme sounds good

    You could try this method from Ravendove. I am currently using it for my white SoB army:

    The only difference to this technique is that I am using a couple of thinned down layers of a bleached bone and white mix over the armour after the second wash.

    Here's what it turns out like:
