So I have been test painting various models and I am narrowing down my available options and techniques for the black armor. So far, the method I am leaning toward looks something like this:
- Drybrush Pewter Grey (non GW color)
- Drybrush Bright White (non GW color)
- Block paint 50/50 mix of Abbadon Black / Water or medium. (This one is the tricky part. I have to block only the inside portions of large armor panels, leaving all the drybrushed high points.)
- Nuln Oil wash (pretty heavy).
