Purple Robe

  1. Basecoat with Abaddon Black .
  2. Glaze highlights with Naggaroth Night Night. I'd recommend doing a few passes or easing the transition with a black and purple mix initially.
  3. Chunky highlights of 2:3 Naggaroth Night & Screamer Pink .
  4. Fine highlights of Genestealer Purple .
  5. Selective highlights of Administratum Grey .
  6. Spot high lights of 1:1 Dechala Lilac and White .

When the robe was finished, I felt it could do with being a little more pink. So, I took some Volupus Pink , worked it on my wet palette and applied it as a glaze. I started at the highest highlights and dragged my brush to recesses.

White Cloth

  1. Basecoat with 1:1 Celestra Grey and White .
  2. Wash with Apothecary White .
  3. Add a increasing amount of Dark Reaper to your Apothecary White and shade the recesses.
  4. Add White to the base mix and apply highlights.
  5. Add final small highlights of White .

Teal Quilting (and Wax)

  1. Basecoat with Incubi Darkness .
  2. Pick out raised portions with Lupercal Green .
  3. Glaze towards the top of the diamond shapes with Sons of Horus Green .
  4. Pick out the top edges with the finiest line of Sybarite Green you can.
  5. Finish with dots of Wraithbone at the top.

Caucasian Skin

  1. Basecoat with an equal parts mix of Cadian Fleshtone , Kislev Flesh and White Scar .
  2. Wash with Reikland Fleshshade .
  3. If any points need extra shading, I would recommend using some thing Doombull Brown .
  4. Re-establish the basecoat where needed, then mix increasing amounts of White Scar into it, highlighting up raised points.

Dark Brown Leather

  1. Basecoat the leather area with Rhinox Hide .
  2. Glaze most of the leather with thinned Mournfang Brown . Use quite a small brush and drag towards edges in rough lines. This should create some extra texture.
  3. Add a chunky edge highlight of Skrag Brown to all edges.
  4. Highlight everything again, this time with a fine line of Skrag Brown and Ushabti Bone mixed 1:1. This is a good mix to throw in occasional fine lines and scratches.
  5. With pure Ushabti Bone , selectively highlight corners and exposed edges of the leather. Put a dot of this colour where the additional scratched above meet edges too.
  6. Add a little pure white (like Dead White ) to your Ushabti Bone and add dot highlights to corners.


  1. Basecoat with Ushabti Bone .
  2. Wash with a 1:1 mix of Skeleton Horde and Contrast Medium .
  3. Pop some :agrax into deep recesses and glaze into ones that need enhancing.
  4. Add chunky highlights of Screaming Skull .
  5. Mix some White into your Screaming Skull and add finer, more selective highlights.
  6. Finishe with specular highlights of White .

Black Leather

  1. Basecoat with Abaddon Black .
  2. Add a chunky highlight to edges with 1:1 Abaddon Black and Baharroth Blue .
  3. With pure Baharroth Blue add smaller, finer highlights.
  4. Selectively highlight with very small highlights of Blue Horror .
  5. Finally mix the Blue Horror 1:1 with White Scar and add specular highlights to select areas.


  1. Basecoat with Leadbelcher .
  2. Wash with Nuln Oil .
  3. Add highlights with Ironbreaker .
  4. Now selectively highlight with Vallejo Model Air Silver RLM01 Metallic .

  4. Pick out highlights with Gold
  5. Fine highlights with Vallejo Model AIr Silver RLM01 Metallic .

Red Marble

  1. Basecoat with Mephiston Red .
  2. Shade the recesses with 2:1 Khorne Red and Black .
  3. Chunky highlights of Evil Sunz Scarlet .
  4. Fine highlights of Wild Rider Red .
  5. Selective highlights of Cadian Fleshtone .


  1. Basecoat with Steel Legion Drab .
  2. With Karak Stone paint all of the parchment, apart from the recess between the two pieces. Do a few coats for full coverage.
  3. Use Rakarth Flesh and paint in horizontal lines, picking out the raised details.
  4. Highlight the detail more selectively, aiming for most extreme folds and points. Use Pallid Wych Flesh for this.
  5. Glaze towards the "wax" with Agrax Earthshade . Also use this for a recess shade between the parchment an in cuts and splits.
  6. Selectively highlight edges with small amounts of White Scar or another pure white.
