    Golden Bretonnian Armor

    Has anyone ever tried doing golden/bronze/copper armor on their Bretonnians? How'd it come out? I was thinking of doing gold armor with red barding on a unit but am unsure how it would turn out.

    Okay, I have never painted a Bretonian, but I have painted many models where gold/coppers are the main colours.

    Metallics are very fickle to work with. They can come out too bright or clean, and it looks bad. A black ink wash can leave dark uneven splotches, and that looks worse. Instead, give the gold a green ink wash, and it will just soften the brightness without taking away the gold colour (if that makes sense).

    Have fun

    what i do is, Start with a basecoat of shining gold. Then you wash with a flesh wash. After you finish that, drybrush shining gold/boltgun metal about a 4:1 mix respectivly. Then just drybrush a mithril silver over that. The key is to do a very very light brush of mithril silver, because it has the power to over power the color. It creates a really good looking gold color
