I wanted the metal areas on the arco-flagellant to look cleaner and brighter than I usually make them.
To paint the brass areas
Base: Tin Bitz + Dwarf Bronze + German cam. black brown
Shade: wash with smoke + black
Highlight: 1) Tin Bitz + Dwarf Bronze 2) Dwarf Bronze
Paint chips/cracks: black + brown
Edge highlight: glorious gold
To paint the steel areas
Shade: wash with black + smoke
Highlight: 1) Gunmetal + small amount of Tin Bitz 2) gunmetal
Paint chips/cracks: black/brown
Edge highlight: chainmail silver
Glazing can add tincture to the metals – in this case, a bit of warmth.
Although it can be tedious, 4-6 thin coats will give a smoother and more consistent effect than 1-2 heavy applications. So:
1) Glaze all metal areas with several thin layers of Seraphim Sepia.
2) Glaze the steel areas with Reikland Flesh.
3) Glaze the brass areas with Druchii violet.
4) Paint the recesses of all metal areas with Agrax Earthshade.
I haven’t figured out how to paint the black armour yet; but I will make a step by step guide to painting the electric flails next.
