I could tell you... buuuuuut…… you wouldn't believe how easy it is you only need to be organised and know how you're going to attack it. The knights have 3 parts to focus on, under skeleton, armour plates and lenses.

Prime your model with a silver primer and then base coat all other parts (gold with brown, main base colour or armour on plates and lens colour) wash everything with Agrax and let dry, then it's really applying certain wash and paints in areas. Orange in joins and rivets for rust, blues/purples/sepia on metals for aging and oil/heat stains. You can either drybrush lightly silver on the edges or paint scratches etc at this stage. wash all your metals with Nuln oil, they should be dark enough now with some cool effects. You can re apply scratches or strengthen areas if you need to now.
overbrush gold onto the brown parts then mix 50/50 gold silver and go again followed by pure silver on the edges. wash the recesses with nuln oil = gold done. again you can add sepia and purples if you want to add depth or spend more time.
lenses, if you're doing red paint a scab red first then blood red on the lower diagonal half, let it dry and use a watery yellow ( I use Army painter demonic yellow) and paint the lower right edge which you can then pull a little paint to stain the red and 'blend' it in, a white dot top right and you're good.
as for armour, here's where dry brushing and over brushing are your friends! a medium highlight drybrush and a slightly lighter slightly wetter overbrush next, you use a damp brush to blend the highlights together where it's brightest, you can add more steps depending on how light you want it. wash everything with your corresponding washes for the colour and use a highlight colour for weathering scratches.

That's the gist of it and if you know what you're adding next and have paints ready to rock you can get it done in a day.

I also had a small 3 way battle against Imperial fists and Dark angels last week. I lost as per usual but Kharn did run up on a contemptor and beat the gak outta it in one turn before he got shredded by a cannon.

Hi everyone! it's been ages since i've been able to drop in and say hi! but a friend lent me her laptop so I can post up some work i've been doing I have been pretty busy with the brush as I chase my 500 model count and I think i've got pics of nearly everything I painted while I was incommunicado but since I couldn't really check all the shots before the models went to their people some may be missing or a bit gakky
I have a pretty good mix of tabletop stuff and stuff he wanted at a little better character style, so hopefully after so long there's at least something you like!

I also want to just say I hope you guys are doing well as you can be with the world as it is right now I have struggled a bit personally even though i'm on an island but i've been working through the whole thing and it's been a bit confronting at times and exhausting. I have missed the regular Nerds here on Dakka and FB isn't my favorite place to be so even though I haven't been on here a lot I still rely on the connection I enjoy the most

So, here's a bit of a pic dump for you all, love to see what you like or want to see more of? I think i've some projects coming from the USA soon too!

I recently painted Mephiston for a local gamer, dropped him off at 8am and he was assembled and painted by 11am




first of some basic Crons i'll be doing a few of.



LoTR heroes


One very blurry sister


that i made up for with two seriously cool catachans


Ultramarine bikers and troops.








A random turret for a Dark Angels army Scorpius and two terrible pics of chaplains so not how they look in real life.





A couple of Warbands were fun and quick!








Space Marine Heroes V2 Nurgle set










Old One eye!!!




Fabulous Bill




Well, there you go! hopefully something for everyone

Wow man, awesome batch of minis I want to call stuff out - the hammertime chappy (nice sculpt too!), the 'Cron scheme, the Dark Elf crew, all of those DG boys (holy hell the faces on those sculpts!) - but there's so much, so I'mma just say that your tone control is the real winner here. Love the feel of all of these paint jobs, gritty but with nice rich color. Also there are some Ultras

Guess who finally got a laptop charger!? this guy! and he's got Van Saar Necromunda gang now spent the last couple of days getting these guys done and i'm pretty happy with the look. I wanted to do them in yellow like the old school hazmat suits you see in the movies, but I did it a little rougher and darker to fit in with Munda a bit better.

The yellow hazmat suits are great, go very well with your Necromunda terrain.

Think I like the dual pistol guy the most.
