Nice, I also do Grey Knights. Tip if you want it: prime black, then drybrush leadbelcher, this will give the model a nice war beaten 40k look, you can highlight after if needed. I find that this is the quickest way to do the armor and turns out great for a chapter thats been fighting deamons for their existence haha.

What do you mean drybrush I'm pretty new to painting so i dunno sorry :P

Sorry. you dip your brush into the paint, but before painting onto the model, wipe a good amount onto a paper towel or something. Enough so that your brush is dry, but paint will still come off it. You'll want to use a more stiff brush for it but any will do really. does this help?

Oh and paint in sort of a vigorous fashion, the technique is meant to get the raised areas of the model and leave the darker shadowy lower ones

Ok sounds easy enough thanks for the advice. What about the gold parts and the loincloth what would I use for that?

well for the gold when I was just starting, I tried to paint every little thing without messing up the black backround. I soon found out that is just way too time cosuming and doesn't look that great. So what you do is dip a medium size brush in something like dwarf bronze(a darker metalic tone) and just kinda paint/bloch it in those areas. not too much or the detail will be swallowed by the paint, but just enough so that the lettering is covered. Don't worry about the backround or getting some on the armor. If some gets on the armor you can touch it up later. After all the gold areas have their "base" you'll want to put a wash over them, mixture of paint and water, can be store bought or self made. I used a mix between badab black and delvan mud (citadel washes) if you make your own just put together some black and dark brown and add about the same amount of water on a mixing tray. Ok once you've "washed" the gold areas then you can highlight them with a brighter gold color like "shining gold". - As for the cloth take some "bleached bone" or any off white color and slap it on there. don't worry about brush stokes showing, they actually add to the texture. After that a brown wash like "delvan mud" thown and I mean who cares where this stuff ends up on top of that. There you have it! Whew it's really simpler than it looks in text lol
