    Hi Stephen,
    Looks great so far. I really like the belts and the weathering and dirt! (y)

    If you don't mind, would you share what colors you used for your "white" and shadows of white? Thanks. :)

    And in general, should the chainmail be painted first on a figure because of the drybrushing?

    Wendy, the colours I used for the whites are the following: Offwhite(vallejo) + green+ black+ ochre. Obviously there are only touches of the dark colours in the mix. The highlights were added by first adding less ochre and more offwhite until you're using pure white. The lowlights are the addition of black to the base mix until you're using NEARLY pure black. This step is applied in a very diluted form. As for the chainmail, in the pics itsnearly done but I want to add the higfhlights after all the parts are attached. I like my chainmails very dark since iron in those days went nearly black after a while

    Stephen,
    This looks so great... I was wondering about the "white" also.. but
    I see Wendy's post. Thanks for sharing. My next figure has a lot
    of white in his uniform.. so going to try to play around with different
    mixes and try your mix.
    Look forward to more pics.

    Thanks

    Hehe, learn something new everyday! I'll keep that in mind. :lol:

    Thanks for sharing the colors mixes, Stephen. They certainly aren't what I would expect, but that's why I still have a lot to learn about colors and mixes.

    On a side note, I've really enjoyed your painting tutorials! :)
