ive tried painting these small shields but they become a mess, any tips on how i should paint them?
yeah sure.... the best way is to start simple with them.... try doing them all in like a half and half split down the centre in white and red.. if you do it to all of them then it'll help tie the unit together... i actually don't use em un my krey knights apart from on my 2 dreads
Oh, you mean the skulls on the left shoulder pad?
I have had a tough time painting those, and I still do, from time to time. I will basecoat it in Vermin brown, or any brown for that matter and drybrush it in bleached bone and then lightly highlight in skull white. This give a clean look, but that is also the draw back.
The other method is to paint it in bleached bone and then wash it in brown ink. This one is the most troubling for me as the ink will not always reside into the cracks, however this way tends to give, a more in depth look.
Edit: Oops.. Sorry, thought you ment the Space Marine Terminators.
If Wolves were meant to fly, wouldnâ€™t the Emperor have given them wings?
Those are sort of like a squad badge. If you have a cool symbol or color, I would suggest painting that. Mine, for example, are red with a white stripe passing through. Every Terminator, every shield.
Henceforth no man shall set foot upon the world, and all around shall be set sentinals to ward away unwary spacecraft. We must accept that this place is lost to us forever, and is now the eternal habitation of abomination.

XV, do you Scuba dive? Cos a red flag with a diagonal white stripe is the diver's flag...
I paint my grey knights differently. instead of using red loin clothers and shields etc. i use blue. It makes the grey knights look more individual and unique then the original paint scheme.

Mmmm...I figured someone would do that eventually. I think that's cool, but GKs are highly regimented...Perhaps you should come up with some fluff as to why they have blue trim. Maybe they aided some Ultramarines against a giant Slaaneshi chaos invasion, and were presented with UM painted gear.
cheating just a bit but i'm hopeless at creating my own patterns and stuff. And there's one point you all missed...go to gw and ask them to teach you. seriously, really helps!
i actually don't use them except on the real important models...
