Hello all I've got a problem. I'm planning on building and painting a broadsword fellblade for my blood angels army and I'm wondering, how should I go about painting this beast. I'm planning on using the citadel spray primers and base coats as I've had success with them before. It's mainly the shading, washing and highlighting that has got me sh***ing bricks. Could anyone give me some ideas on paints and techniques and how to go about doing these.

Thanks

For my BA tanks, I use Army Painter dragon red as a primer. Works great and the color is perfect. Then I use the GW wash Agarax Earthshade along the hard lines, then edge highlight. There is alot of options here, I use the older color blazing orange.

That kind of weathering is real easy. Use a sponge of some sort, it takes some expermenting to find the kind of sponge you like. I hit the hard edges with black, then lightly with leadbelcher. Also, since the hard edges get most of the weathering you need less edge highlights.
