Method used to paint 'warp gold', adapted from the Eavy Metal explanation by Max Faleij.


  1. Liberator Gold Dryad Bark (2:1 - thin with water, two coats+)


  1. Rhinox Hide add to previous mix, adding Lahmian Medium to thin and shade recesses
  2. Abaddon Black add to previous step to shade deepest recesses (ensure Lahmian Medium still keeps the mix thin)
  3. Update April 2020: I've found going in at this stage a pin wash of the above mix, but with Nuln Oil Gloss really helps the metal contrast. Optional step.


Thin paints as appropriate using water or Lahmian Medium

  1. Liberator Gold thicker edge highlight
  2. Stormhost Silver on tips, finest edges
