I wanted the armour to have a cold tone, so I’ve highlighted it with turquoise and greys:
I’ve left the shoulder pads blank at this stage, as I’m not sure which parts will need highlighting once the flames/chapter icons are in place.
Base: Abaddon Black + Incubi Darkness (2:1)
Shade: wash recesses with Abaddon Black
Edge highlights: 1) Incubi Darkness 2) Thunder Hawk Blue 3) Administratum Grey 4) Pale Grey Blue
Blink dots: white
Glaze: all over with Nuln Oil + Incubi Darkness + Lahmian medium
I found it necessary to tidy-up around some of the highlighting, using the base-colour of black+Incubi Darkness.
At each highlighting stage, I would recommend completing one area at a time – e.g. an armour plate – before moving onto another. Otherwise all the edge-highlighting becomes a bit demoralising.
Painting this will probably prove a bit stop-start, as I have something else that needs doing – but all will become clear, hopefully.
