Ingravings

Post by Eliphas » Tue Dec 22, 2009 1:46 pm

I'm now a decent painter... grey knights are looking better every time.

However, does anyone know how best to paint the gold ingravings on the power armor (espeicaly for the terminators).

-also, what is the best way to write names and such on them?

Helpzz

what i do for the shoulders is first wet down some tin bitz paint and paint that on and then go over that with burnished gold in kind of a dry brush fashion thats what i do it come out really nice i think i'll upload a pic if you like when i get my terms back from my friends house.

and as for the names i would recommend getting either a paint pen a really fine tipped one and then once it's dry seal it in with a light wash or use a tooth pick dabbed in paint it works very nicely but can be harder to control than the other

I do Dwarf Bronze, highlighted with Shinning Gold, then highlighted a tiny bit with
2:1 Shinning Gold / Mithril Silver. Last an Ogryn Flesh wash. I use that technique
on all of my Deamonhunters.

Actually now that I remember, the gold on the StormTrooper didnt have an Ogryn
Flesh wash.

Just post your pics here. For simplicity you can always just paint it gold and give it a heavy brown wash. For the script work check out the vid I did on that (link in my sig)
