Who can paint Power weapons?
 
Hello guys ... I've tried and tried and tried but cannot get my power weapons right

At the moment most of them are still at the plastic stage ... I was wondering if anyone here can paint them in the style on the grey knights box (blue and white force looking)

I'm happy to post what I've got to you and send an envelope for postage back

Of course I will reward you for your time in anyway you wish (within reason)

Thanks :)

I have seen people painting the style of force weapon you are referring to for the grey knights with an air brush. Not sure the best way to do this by hand though.

I've never used an airbrush before!

Tbh ... As long as they look good I'm happy ... I just can't get them right :(

This tutorial takes you step by step painting the power weapons in the style you refer to by hand. I use a slightly modified method of garfy's technique and it's quite doable once you get the hang of it :)

Great link @Matcap

Have a cookie :) I will be defenitly using this for my own force weapons, although I may change the colours depending on the army I'm painting.

Let us know if you use this tutorial and how you get on with this @Festerblight
You are looking for step 4. I would suggest practicing this on some sprue pieces till you are comfortable doing it.

I do wetblending of metal colours by mixing lets say blue with light silver to get an effect of receding.

Are you looking to get just the weapons painted, or the entire models?

I'm borrowing that, thank you very much. In the word of The Simpsons: Joink!

When I make power weapons, I usually do very much layering between the colour I want the blade to have, and white, and end with gloss varnish. Looks something like this (although this is not exactly a power weapon):
