    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.

    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.

    XV, do you Scuba dive? Cos a red flag with a diagonal white stripe is the diver&#39;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&#39;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&#39;m hopeless at creating my own patterns and stuff. And there&#39;s one point you all missed...go to gw and ask them to teach you. seriously, really helps&#33;

    i actually don&#39;t use them except on the real important models...
