1. Silver Skulls power armour painting guide

This is a recipe for painting steel armour quickly. It’s a slightly updated version of the recipe you can find in my free Silver Skulls tutorial here.

2. Nighthaunt spectral purple bodies tutorial

Really love this combination of zenithal airbrushing and drybrushing, really helps to get large parts of the models done quickly so I can focus on the details. On my Patreon, I have a complete step-by-step tutorial for my Nighthaunt scheme for those interested.

3. Cool Striking Scorpions green painting guide

Check out my painting guide above if you’re looking for a more cooler hue of Striking Scorpion Aeldari armour. As you might notice, I painted the armour using only the new Warpaints Fanatic from The Army Painter, you can find a detailed review here. And to learn how I painted this Exarch from start to finish, head over to my Patreon for a detailed tutorial.
