Golden Armour

  1. Basecoat the armour with a 3:1 mix of Vallejo Metal Color Gold and Copper . If you are using Citadel paints, an equal mix of Retributor Armour and Stormhost Silver is about right.
  2. Wash the armour with Gore-grunta Fur , thinned 1:3 with Contrast Medium .
  3. Thin some Cygor Brown and shade recesses. I just worked it on my wet pallete and let the water do the hard work.
  4. Edge highlight with Gold and Chrome wixed 1:1.
  5. Add specular highlights of Chrome .

Brown Clothing

  1. Basecoat with Steel Legion Drab .
  2. Wash with Agrax Earthshade .
  3. Highlights with Steel Legion Drab and Karak Stone , roughly 50/50.
  4. Selective highlights with Karak Stone and Screaming Skull , roughly :50/50.
  5. Specular highlights with Screaming Skull , where needed.

White Cloak

  1. Basecoat with Ulthuan Grey .
  2. Add soft shading to the recesses with an equal parts mix of Dawnstone , Baneblade Brown and Ulthuan Grey . Keep it thinned to a gaze consistency and brush into the deepest parts.
  3. Glaze Stormvermin Fur into the deepest recesses.
  4. If you want to add muddy texture to the bottom, stipple a very thin mix of Dawnstone and Baneblade Brown e towards the bottom.
  5. Finish off the cloak by adding highlights of a pure white like Dead White or White Scar to edges.
