    Gentlemen,

    Here is a pic of a bit more progress on the Grandmaster.
    To rest a bit from the figure itself I started the banner (reds) and the helmet checkering.

    Arthur,
    nice work. The shield on the templar is quite nice. I like the streaks of rust and dirt. It looks just like what I do to weather armor models! :lol: It works very nicely here!

    Very nicely done Arthur. I really like the weathering you did on the metals. Also great shields on both figures.

    Arthur,

    Both are extremely well done. Is it possible to make a lighter picture of the Grandmaster. Then we could better see the details that you painted.
    Great work.

    Jay,
    I have noticed as well that some AFV weathering techniques work very well on armour :)
    especially for the used, wornout effects.
    I think that larger scale knight busts would be a perfect canvass for such weathering ;)

    Xenofon,
    Thank you.
    I use printer's inks for metals. Start with dark mix (silver+black+touch of brown) and keep highligthing with pure silver color.

    Hey there. They look terrific. I'm new to this and I'm trying to learn how to do realistic metal. I've had some good tips already but I'd love to know how you did the first pictures helmet, could you tell me how you did that and what paint you used?

    Thanks man.
