Hi guys.

Trying hard to paint what I have bought before I buy more and am having real trouble painting the colour scheme of my choice. Catachan Green armour with black fatigues.

The problem I'm having is how to highlight the black cloth.

Any tips/step by steps would be greatly apreciated.

Cheers

Ah yes the shading path, I've never tried it, now seems as good a time as any.

i'm painting my black templars with what i should call a combination of the extreme and "painterly" highlights that they list on that article. they're turning out pretty well, although id does takes some practise to learn just how to do the highlight. holding it up to a light like the recomend is a must.

when i highlighted the black cloth on my Inq Lok, i used Adeptus Battlegrey mixed with progressively less black, then started to use slightly lighter greys. when it got a bit too light, i inked it black and it turned out ace.

I tried a drybrush of 50/50 chaos black and codex grey, it seemed to work pretty well. I made a test mini way back that had those same fatigue colors.
