I was putting the brown wash on my gold eagle and got curious about what other washes would look like on metal. So this is what I came up with.

I painted a mini in silver and put 1 coat of black wash.



After the first coat of blue and red wash.



Second coat of wash.



Third and final wash



I don't think it works for a space marine army, but maybe for Necrons, Chaos, or some elf type army. Dunno, see what you can do with it.

Actually that is kinda cool. Never would have tried putting washes straight on the metal.

You know what? I think a Thousands Sons army would look good. You should try it and post it, I'd love to see that.

After reading this I used the purple wash over my sonic blasters that had been painted boltgun metal, and it really added a nice slaanesh flare that was lacking. Thanks for the idea.


Hello btw. My first post here on this excellent message board.

this kinda takes me back to when i started the hobby, my GW store used to black wash(well it was ink back then) all the new model and put them in the cabinets, the wash was so you could pick out the detail because back in the day almost everything was lead.

Then they would paint them up over the next few weeks based on what came through in white dwarf heavy metal pages.

Hello to you too :biggrin: now, you have just admitted to owning chaos, this means you must post pictures of them, i'd love to see some slaneeshi models :3

Btw, cool painting, i already do this with my chaos, but just on a white undercoat, gives for a less shiny effect :laugh:

I've done this on some of the armor for my Slaanesh Fantasy army. Purple wash over silver gives a really nice metallic pink effect. It still looks like metal, just Slaaneshi. It would probably look good in a Tzeench force as well, though I wouldn't use it for Nurgle :p
Even Khorne could possibly benefit from a red wash over brass. I don't know how it would look though. As a dedicated Slaanesh follower I wouldn't try it unless I was making a trophy-standard.

Man, this reminds me of the discussion we were having a few months back on here about metallic red. i think we all agreed mixing red with boltgun metal was best, but maybe this is the way forward?
