This is a written version of the Duncan Rhodes tutorial. Not my work.

First batch towards black wash.


You can paint with a larger brush here.

  1. Inside of coats with Gal Vorbak Red .
  2. Metal armor pieces in Abaddon Black (or Black ).
  3. Soft parts of armor (corset, back of knee, etc) in Dryad Bark .
  4. Outside of robes with Mephiston Red .
  5. Cables, pipes, bolt gun in Leadbelcher .
  6. White decorations (e.g. wings and fleur-de-lis on shoulder pads) in Ulthuan Grey (or just White ).
  7. Cover all in Nuln Oil and make sure nothing stains in the large red sections. Dry for about an hour.

Second batch towards brown wash.


Switch to a fine brush.

  1. Paint brown leather straps or belts in Mournfang Brown .
  2. Add Retributor Armour on decorative crosses and fleur-de-lis.
  3. Paint hair in Pallid Wych Flesh . Might need multiple coats to fully cover.
