Dude, that sounds awesome. Do you have a technique already set? I know a bunch of people have put good marble tutorials for green/black marbling up either in the tutorial section or their Project logs. Pretty sure buried in mine is a tutorial on brown/tan marbling as well... but I can't remember where, honestly.

I also decided not to care about houses... my Knights are bonded to my Titan Legio, so no need for house iconography when you are part of the Mechanicus' tithe!

Gonna go with Ubshanti Bone as the primary color. Never done this before.
Hmmm couldn't find that tutorial I did after all...

The way I think I did it was getting scorched brown (or student burnt umber), khemri brown, Ushabti Bone, ceramite white, earth wash and gloss.

Base in the darkest brown, then dry brush in one direction only with the lighter kemri brown. Then paint patches in the ushabti bone such that you are left with veins of the darker brown that run between them. Mix the white and bone to get a lighter hue, drybrush in the same direction as the last dry brush, wash it all down to blend it and then gloss...

At least that's the way I'd start! Maybe try that out on another model's base first?

I want it to be more 'pearly' and 'white' than 'old'. Basically, I want my Knight to look like an old European Religious Antique got up and went out to murder people.
Aaaand now I need to see this.
Hells yeah, michaelangelo's David coming alive and karate chopping down King Vittorio's peasant bronze statue! Bring it on!
