    thats pretty much exactly what it is i think. only with a lot more details on the grey layers before you introduce colour. you could also tint the grey layer warm or cold, to get diffferent effects as long as your glaze / thin layers are transparent enough. i started black drybrushed my main light white, then added black stone chipping and scratches and lined those with white, THEN colour

    i made an attempt on this on tonights stream. this is where i got in a couple of hours. it was fun doing all the grey work. i of course need to do the highlihgting and scratches before i get onto weathering but i enjoyed it

    Id love to see a tutorial on how you achieve this method, i loathe painting space marines, but weathering is my bag. Is it as simple as just glazing over / sparying over base colours over bnw base layers? Then either edging or light drybrush pickouts of the details?

    Warhammer 40k Kill Team GW Campaign NOOBS WELCOME!

    i seem to recall the Yogscast guys doign a Games Night video series on Kill Team where one match was SW vs whatever. and they had 3 normal dudes, a wolf and a wolfen, the wolfen and wolf could advance before their first turn into cover then got up close to the enemy early on. the wolf got murdered, but the Wolfen just ate through some Chaos Rubrics. the Sw lost, but that was due to some really terrible positioning of his normal troops out in the open allowing the Rubric marines to melt them. you'll get there

    have you looked at getting some Wolfen, wolves etc so you have some close combat wrecking ability? your list currently is basically pale blue space marines isn't it? those wolfen are mean in killteam

    depends when you're using it. as a final coat yeah for protection unless you want to play with advanced material properties on a model not just colour. rather like how Blood for the Blood god is shiny, and looks great over a matt model, ive seen people use gloss arnish to simulate everything from eyes/ lenses tears, sweat to rain, oil, dusty to wiped clean surfaces etc. all depends hwo deep you go. other more obvious uses for varnishes are for wash work. a wash on a matt coat will "stick and colour" the surface more, whereas a gloss will suck it into all the recesses. if you do enamel weathering like i do you can work varnish coats into your workflow to "seal" in worked enamel and oil work so further layers of weathering dont get messed up and reactivated. for a final coat though, like i said, i don't bother

    Battlefield V - November 20th

    what's the deal with customisation of the weapons and such? is it closer to BF1 or BF4? i loved the customisation in 4, and felt 1 was pretty falt and hollow in comparison. i understand there'll be no lasers and digital camo etc, but y'know..
