-Mithril Silver (or Chainmail)
-Brazen Brass (or Dwarf Bronze)
-Chaos Black Spray Paint
(Note: I use mostly FolkArt paints, but these are the equivelents to the ones I use)
-Fine Detail Brush
-X-Acto Knife (to remove mould lines)
The first step (after assembling) is to clean off the mould lines using an X-Acto knife or alternatley files. Then prime the model with the Chaos Black Spray Paint, make sure you don't spray it on too thick, or it will fill in the details. Then touch up the spots you missed with chaos black.
Now for the most time consuming part, the robe. Now white is hard to paint over black so you have to start with codex grey and add increasing amounts of skull white until you are using pure skull white,(you might want to slightly water down the paints).

1:2 Codex Grey to Skull White
Pure Skull White
Now for the all important blue, start of by basecoating the arm sleeves and the sash/belt with regal blue.
Then highlight (pick out the higher points with a small amount of paint) the blue parts with enchanted blue.
Paint the hair, belt (across his chest),the pouch, the bow,and the flesh areas with dark flesh.
Next is to highlight the flesh (skin) areas with dwarf flesh.
Then highlight the highest parts with elf flesh.
You can paint the eyes in by painting skull white in the eye sockets, then painting a small dot of chaos black in the middle.
The next step is to carefully paint brazen brass on the ornamental parts of the bow and on the bracelets.
Then highlight that with shining gold.
This is a pretty short step, simply paint mithril silver (or chainmail) on the armour around his face.
Last Step! Paint the gems blood red (or a colour of your choice).
And there you have it! Now all you have to do is base it and he's ready to kill some Dark Elves!!
