WIP GK termie, more pics lower down, but just to give you an idea of the method. basically he's just been heavily drybrushed silver. and had a few dabs of gold.


WIP experimentation: red hilt + blue blade = no.


Refinment:



Basically done:


My first finished ST. i like his eye.

painting looks good. I'd consider a wash of blue ink on the silver armour of the termies. A friend of mine did that to his and they look really good.

Looks pretty nice.

What are those, custom GKs i see? With the cloaks?

The only problem is the STs. The flesh there is kinda yellow. (Sorry If you aren't done there yet!)

cuztom GKs... check out the WIP thread for how i made them, mostly from vanilla marines and GS.

the face of the STs, i'm open to suggestions, i used dwarf flesh and then washed it with the old flesh wash, youre right, now... how do i fix it?

Being a collector of GK i do suggest to give them a blue inck wash/glaze.

Also i advise not to drubrush them and highlight up from bolt gun...I've found out the hard way that using boltgun spray is a bad idea, its better to just paint it on.

The way i do my Grey knight is to paint them all bolt gun, then ink wash them blue, then highlight up to mithirl silver,

also, the blue swords make them metal, if your trying to do non metalic metal, then u need to use a blue grey and highlight up from that

Please do try something with the blades. I did not do anything particularly impressive with the blades on my GK's, and I'm now wishing I had.

Still, there is always a chance to go over them again...

Your models look quite nice.

There is just something about thse models that I don't like. I don't know what it is and it's probably intrinsic to the models, so I won't go further.

It's the Grey Knights in Power Armour. I think the incorporated Nemesis weapons look awkwardly oversized (which is why the Storm Bolters were the size of Bolt Pistols in the very old ones) and, like I've said before, I think the Kneadatite masks look bad. The ones with more unconverted helmets look better to me, and with the chunky Nemesis and the funny faceplates, it just adds up to be too much. OF course, at this stage, you've probably narly finished the army and you can't do anything about that.
