How to paint Grey Knights with the new GW Citadel paints
I have spent 20+ hours creating a comprehensive guide to painting the above model in just 39 simple steps using the new Citadel paints.
Check out the link:
I've only quickly looked into how you've done it on your link, but I'm impressed!
I've seen that you use a lot of the Lahriman Medium in stages, but it's not something I've seen used/played around with yet - what does the Medium actually do when you mix it with paints?
Why not just paint using a basecoat + Chainmail (or Mithril Silver if you want brighter GKs) and then go over them with a wash to shade the crevices? (of course, the new paint equivalents are also meant).
I wonder why one needs so many layers and mixtures and ratios of different paints to make a model look good, when a simple paintjob can yield the same result (and *not* make your model look shoddy at all) unless of course you want them on a GW or Golden Demon display.
Just wondering ^^
Ah if you'd read the tutorial, you'd find the answer to your question.
