|Primed Black then apply base color|
First step is the prime the model black, and apply base coat over the model. For my base coat I use a custom color mix of Shadow Grey, Space Wolves Grey and Skull White. This mix is thinned with water. If I had to do them over, I would skip the custom color and use Fenris Grey, as it just plain roxorz! Let this dry!
|Asurmen Blue Wash entire model|
Next step is to apply an Asurmen Blue Wash over the entire model. This will give you a blue tinge, without looking all 'My Little Pony Blue'. Let this dry thoroughly!
|Badab Black Wash|
|Drybrush Base Color, paint detail bits. Face, Bronze Areas, Hair, etc.|
I have a lighter/thinner custom color (see mix above), that I use for regular troops, and to highlight the edges of armor for my terminators. Due to it being a bit thinner, you can goof and it typically blends in nicely. I'll use this color to highlight any armor joints. I typically stick to the 'simple' stuff I can overbrush. Overbrushing is a technique where you are not drybrushing, but painting raised areas. Wish good brush positioning, you can highlight a model nicely, without the need for a steady hand, by just running the brush along the edges.
After your base color, paint all your bits in the base colors you chose. I use Dwarf Bronze, Red Gore, Calthan Brown (any fur), Bleached Bone for the Crux on the left shoulder pad, Fortress Grey for Hair (darker/lighter depending). I use a Tallarn Flesh for the skin.
That's it for the base stuff, Next time I'll cover the washes and any highlighting of the remaining bitz.
