Default Grey Knights - 2,000pts list

Hey all!

So just finished up with a Crimson Fists army, now moving onto the Grey Knights

Currently, I only have dodgy iPhone pics.. but that will be updated soon.

In the meantime, I'd love your thoughs on my colour scheme

Hmm. Highlights for me just dont fit, it's a little too highlighted, and psycannon is VERY meh. It looks unpainted to me. Scheme itself and melee weapons are awesome, but heed my advice.

Also 2000 points of grey knights? Thats like 20 guys right? Trololol...

World's Worst Project-Logger.

Slightly Derranged, would advice staying away.

Haha, thanks man. I just painted them blood red to begin with, then drew the lines out with orange, then worked my way up with thinner lines with yellow, then a bit of white. (I actually think I overdid the white on the Paladins..)

Yeah the highlights aren't very good, but I paint with a "while playing" point of view, so its all about that they look like from that 1m distance I'll be seeing them from while playing

Still working on how I want the guns, I wanted pure white but it needs something else, I agree.

And yeah, haha usually thats the case. I have 5 paladins, 5 purgations, and 10 interceptors plus a librarian.
The rest is going to be inquisitorial acolytes with coteaz. (And the odd vehicle or two)

Yeh the white needs a wash or highlighting, or some other technical painting term to make it look a little less flat on the guns. Otherwise awesome, they've all got thick grey mascara on

Just a thought, what if I painted really tiny thin lettering or designs onto the gun housings?

i like 'em nice job, you might even consider doing a quick wash over the black to soften up the transition to grey but i think they are fine as is, good to see grey knights that are not well.... grey

Hey all,

I couldn't get any sleep tonight, so I decided my librarian needed painting

I glued the end of a halberd to his staff, instead of trying to cut apart such a cool weapon. I play him as having falchions (because normal swords are too mainstream!)





Photos are from my iPhone.. so nuff' said.

But comments and opinions always welcome! Thank you
