So tonight in my effort to post on a regular occasion as I work on my Grey Knights I sat down to start weathering the models.
I'm working the back story as I go and that's starting to inform the state in which the Armour will be.
These guys haven't just stepped of the strike cruiser. Oh no they are currently marooned on a temple world fighting off hordes of daemons and renegade space marines.
As such I'm setting about adding that worn look to the marines- cloaks and tabards will also get the treatment.
so the weathering powders I'm using a a mix of the Forgeworld powders and the secret weapon powders.
The metallic iron i particularly like as working that into the armor gives the plates a dull metal look which when combined with metallic highlights really makes the grey knight looks like they are wearing unpainted unpolished cermite.
This is the tester i did on the terminator tonight and I think this is a good result using the vallejo plata silver 72052 as a highlight mixed a little with the metallic iron.
So far so good. Interested in thoughts. Doubt its going to get a nod from tournament painting judge but I'm thinking it really gives a sense of wear and tear.
