I got quite a few questions about how I painted the armour on my Grave Guard, so I wrote this little tutorial for you. Learn how to paint a reddish copper/brass tone with a subtle verdigris effect in this easy-to-follow painting guide.
This tutorial assumes you know the basic grips of painting Warhammer miniatures. Step-by-step I explain all the paints and techniques I used. I have a rather eclectic paint collection, so when I use a paint that is not from Games Workshop (or out of production), I’ll try to provide you with suitable alternatives from the current Citadel paint range [in brackets]. However, if you want to achieve exactly the same result as shown, I recommend expanding your paint collection. You’ll find a list of all the paints used in this tutorial at the end of the post.
