  1. Thin down Caledor Sky and run it into all of the cuts on skin
  2. Repeat above with Baharroth Blue but on smaller area near the center
  3. Highlight a very small area with Dead White as if light is glinting off of it. Only do on larger areas as we wouldn't want the white to blend in with the fur.

  1. Base with Dark Stone
  2. See video. Lazy wet drybrush with Ironbreaker using sweeping strokes. Don't completely cover it, let the pitting, etc. show through as we want an aged scratched up look.
  3. Wash with Dark Tone Flesh Wash Airbrush Flow Improver [1-1-2]. Dab on aggressively all over the metal and don't let it pool on flat surfaces.
  4. Edge highlight a few select areas with Ironbreaker while considering the light source.

Random Bits: Skulls

  1. Base with Flayed One Flesh
  2. Cover entire area with Skeleton Horde while letting it pool a bit where it naturally settles
  3. Moderate drybrush with Ushabti Bone


  1. Spray varnish on entire model with Matt Varnish Airbrush Thinner [1-1] at 15PSI. Don't allow it to pool. May require 2x coats.


Note: All thinner/flow mixes and PSI pressures are mostly for me based on my airbrush and how I use it. They may not be ideal for your setup.
