I began by painting the figures entirely with Ceramcoat “White”. I let that dry, and then gave both pieces a complete coat of slightly thinned Citadel Contrast “Templar Black”.
When the “Templar Black was dry, I drybrushed them with Ceramcoat “Metallic Silver”. I then did follow-up drybrush coats with Reaper MSP “Polished Silver”, and a lighter final drybrush with Reaper MSP “Sophie Silver”
Next, I gave the support pole on the back of each figure a coat of Citadel Contrast “Snakebite Leather”. After that, I painted the belt on each one with Crafter’s Acrylic “Cinnamon Brown”, and the platform each stands on with Ceramcoat “Charcoal”.
I then gave the belts a wash with Citadel Shade “Agrax Earthshade”, and the platforms a wash of Citadel Shade “Nuln Oil”. I let those washes dry, and then I highlighted the belts with Americana “Sable Brown”, and I did a drybrush highlighting on each platform with Crafter’s Acrylic “Storm Cloud Grey”. I also added highlights to the support poles with DecoArt Dazzling Metallics “Bright Brass”. Lastly, I went back and did some spot highlights on some of the rivets with the “Sophie Silver”.
