Getting that classic Grey Knights colour scheme of a blue glow over a glorious shiny silver armour has always been daunting for some people but you really shouldn’t convince yourself you’re not skilled enough to attempt such a scheme…Agravain here and my first post for Grey Knights of Titan is going to show you that everyone has the ability to paint like the pros.

Now since the release of the new Grey Knights codex there have been a lot of alternative colour schemes popping up for the Grey Knights but I’ve got to admit I’ve always loved that traditional silver blue glow on my power armour, well today I’m going to show you a great way to paint that classic scheme we’ve all come to love from the Grey Knights

1 – To start with paint all the metal areas with Boltgun metal

2 – paint all the armour with Asurmen Blue wash which shouldn’t be water down, this helps to create a better sense of depth

3 – Once this has dried paint over all the raised areas with bolt gun metal, leaving the wash showing around the edges of bolts and in all the gaps

4 – Start highlighting by mixing a small amount of mithril silver with boltgun metal approximately a 2:1 mix painting along of the edges of the armour, if you look at the picture you will hardly see a difference.

5 – Continue the highlighting process by adding a little more Mithril Silver to the mix each time, for the highlights themselves concentrate on your corners, paint a little less of the corner each time and repeat this process 4 times before moving on to a final stage of pure Mithril silver

6 – Finally I paint over all the armour with a very heavily watered down Asurmen Blue (basically more water than ink), I have found its best not to just walk off and leave it to dry otherwise it can go abit streaky, if it does its not a major issue, you can simply paint over the effected area with boltgun metal and redo the wash if you wish.

So there you go guys…perhaps not the simplest of schemes but give it a try for that little bit of extra effort you put in will pay out dividends…stay tuned soon for some more tutorials including getting those you power armour to have glowing eyes and how to paint your Nemesis Force Weapons to help make your Grey Knights above the average tabletop standard…until next time Agravain out


So the paint scheme I used for my Grey Knight Paladin Wing for Blog Wars was simple but effective but above all with the time constraints I had from the Blog Wars Challenge it was quick!

I had quite a few compliments at Blog Wars about how good these guys looked so I figured I’ll give you a how to guide for painting Grey Knights quickly but effectively.
Colours you will need:
Mithril Silver
Mechrite Red
Blood Red
Dwarf Bronze
Commando Khaki
Bleached Bone
Skull White
Gryphonne Sepia
Devlan Mud
Khemri Brown
Chaos Black
Boltgun Metal
Main Grey Colour of Model…
Step 1:
Undercoat model with black primer, followed by an approximate mix of 2 parts Chaos Black to 1 part Boltgun Metal (if you’re confident with an airbrush this will give a quicker result, otherwise build your layers up slowly to avoid losing details and seeing brush strokes).
Step 2:
Drybrush Mithril Silver over the entire mini.
Shoulder Pauldrons & gold detailing…
Step 1: 
Paint Dwarf Bronze as a base.
Step 2:
Wash Gryphonne Sepia over the gold (2 – 3 fine passes).
Step 3:
Drybrush Shining Gold to pick out lettering detail while keeping recesses dark.
Purity Seal Stamp, Storm bolter/Heavy Weapon + Nemesis Force Weapon handle…
Step 1:
Paint your own personal selection of details Mechrite Red.
Step 2:
Use Blood Red to Pick out extreme Highlights.
Bone Details…
Step 1:
Paint Khemri Brown as a base.
Step 2:
Use Bleached bone to bring out the colour of the bone leaving Khemri Brown in darkest areas.
Step 3:
Lightly drybrush Skull white.
Step 4:
Wash Devlan Mud over model to dull back down colours
Parchment…
Step1:
Paint Khemri Brown as a base.
Step 2:
Use Commando Khaki as second layer leaving Khemri Brown in the darkest areas.
Step 3:
Drybrush Skull White lightly.
Step 4:
Wash with Devlan Mud over miniature to dull the colours back down.

 And there we have it a simple yet effective colour scheme which looks suitably dark and nasty on the battlefield!


Grey Knights…Chapter designate 666 and the God Emperor’s final gift to mankind.
Yes they’re back and looking to reclaim their rightful place back at the top of the space marine hierarchy and here is your first stop resource to finding out what’s hot and what’s not in this latest incarnation of the codex. 
Over the coming weeks we’ll go through Inquisition history including our sisters of the Ordo Hereticus and well known figures like Inquisitor Ravenor,  whilst not forgetting to go through all the juicy treats our new codex has to offer and list their strengths and weaknesses and overall how effective they should be, along with a chunk of painting tutorials and eventually battle reports I hope all you fans of the Inquisition will come to call this place your very own Titan…
