It’s Aurélie, I’m back with my latest big project for a customer, a Blood Angels strike force! Hope you like it. More pictures and a short tutorial for camouflage patterns after the jump.
How to create the camouflage effect
First, I applied the base paint with my airbrush. Then, I cut Tamiya masking tape in small strips and attacehd them to the cloaks in an irregular fashion. I repeated the process with several shades of grey and grey, while adding more strips after each step. Once I was happy with the pattern, I applied Nuln Oil all over shading, taking care to avoid any pooling on the larger flat areas. Alternatively, you could create a black oil wash and, once dry, remove the excess paint with a cotton cloth.
Hope you like my latest commission project. Let me know in the comments, follow me on Instagram and, if you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

This looks great! How did you paint the insignia on the drop pods?
Thank you very much! I only cut masking tape in the correct form. I can you send a picture if you like.
Holy crap o_O Would you like some plasma with your plasma? No, I'm good – just bring me a side of plasma to sprinkle on my plasma…
Great painting, nice overall look.
Needs more plasma though -_-
Thanks for sharing!!!
It's always great to see an army painted to such a high standard!
I love the Thunder Hammers, Drop Pod scorching & those camouflage cloaks…
…But my favourite aspect is the shadowed/Grim-Dark tone you have carried across every model!
Do you use zenithal highlighting? Or just add shade with washes?
(I'm sure their new owner will be ecstatic!!!)
Thank you! 🙂 It's zenithal highlighting.
Scarlet red is great. Only thing i dont like is the silver.
What glue do you use to stick everything together after painting?
