Another quick post, this time on my Grey Knight's red helmets!
Oh man, I'm tired. The concentration of painting small bits of red on a multitude of helmets takes its toll. I have to say though, the over all look though is worth it. I think they look good.
My red recipe is as follows:
- Base with Mephiston red
- Wash with Nuln oil
- Re-base with Mephiston red
- Apply white on areas that need highlights
- Apply a few thin layers of Evil Suns Scarlet over the top of the white paint
That's a cool quick tip for anyone reading, if you want a nice easy way to get a brighter highlight, instead of painting loads and loads of layers of the brighter color, apply a layer of white first and then apply your highlight on top of that.
Here are the latest batch progressing:
