So I Made My Own Wash

Sometimes things just don't go as expected. On Sunday I primed a whole force of grey knights black, and was just about to start painting when I had the clever thought to test out my paint scheme first. My plan was to go for grey knights, not boltgun metal knights, so my test was supposed to be of dark grey, with a directional blast of highly thinned space wolves grey to provide the blueish tint. Well it did not work. I spent about an hour playing with the airbrush, and while there were phases where I could have stopped I just didn't. Rather than have the minis go to waste I decided to pull out my laundry list of wash ingredients I purchased after watching a wash making tutorial. I used out of the pot blue on the mini on the left, a blue wash made by diluting the wash with matte medium and flow aid in the middle, and a soft black wash on the right. diluting wash with the wash recipe produce a lovely soft wash, and I will definitely keep experimenting with this. I did a quick paint job on the captain. I used new paints, and generally had a good time painting him. So what do I do with this guy now?

  1. I've just seen your washes recipe. Thank you for sharing it.

    I tend to use Future/Klear instead of Matte Medium, but I have matte Medium so I'll try both.

    Once again - thanks
