Any ideas who painted this? It is amazing.

Agree with Valkyrie, probably Codex Grey blended to Fortress Grey, and loads of NMM. Really good understanding on reflections and lighting not just on metal bits too.

This is a model of a guy who was featured in White Dwarf a year ago. I hope I don´t confuse two different painters now, but I think he is a specialist for painting what was called ,,cell-shading-look!. He paints great! Very very good blending.

I would try to mix a small amount of graveyard earth into the first layers of grey.

Blessed be the mind that is too small for doubt!

...urrrr... I dunno

Something like this is going to require some serious blending and layering, so good luck! Otherwise, it just looks like you will need the colours people have already stated.
