Icon Wash That Metal (PICS)

I was putting the brown wash on my gold eagle and got curious about what other washes would look like on metal. So this is what I came up with.

I painted a mini in silver and put 1 coat of black wash.



After the first coat of blue and red wash.



Second coat of wash.



Third and final wash



I don't think it works for a space marine army, but maybe for Necrons, Chaos, or some elf type army. Dunno, see what you can do with it.

Actually that is kinda cool. Never would have tried putting washes straight on the metal.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

You know what? I think a Thousands Sons army would look good. You should try it and post it, I'd love to see that.

After reading this I used the purple wash over my sonic blasters that had been painted boltgun metal, and it really added a nice slaanesh flare that was lacking. Thanks for the idea.


Hello btw. My first post here on this excellent message board.

this kinda takes me back to when i started the hobby, my GW store used to black wash(well it was ink back then) all the new model and put them in the cabinets, the wash was so you could pick out the detail because back in the day almost everything was lead.

Then they would paint them up over the next few weeks based on what came through in white dwarf heavy metal pages.

I might very well need to keep this in mind with whatever Crons I get my hands on next time. Thanks for the idea!
