Normally I play my Veteran squads with Meltaguns and Shotguns. Here are the first 6 oft them:


  1. Hello! I really love the color scheme for your veterans/guardsmen! I was hoping you could tell me what colors you use for each part, as I'm trying to achieve a similar effect. Do you use washing or highlighting? What color do you prime them with? Thanks!

  2. Hi!
    Thank you.
    Sure, no problem:

    - Khemri Brown
    - Dheneb Stone
    - Devlan Mud
    - Highlights with diluted Dheneb Stone

    - Khemri Brown
    - Scorched Brown
    - Devlan Mud
    - Highlights with Dheneb Stone

    - Dark Flesh
    - Badab Black

  3. Thanks for your reply! So you started with a basecoat of khemri brown, then covered it with dheneb stone, then applied a wash of devlan mud, followed by highlights of dhened stone?
    Also, what color primer did you use?
    I just want to make sure I've got this right!
    Thanks so much!

  4. Yes, that's right. I leave some Khemri Brown in the recesses. And the highlights with Dheneb Stone are set very thoughtfully and the colour itself is diluted. Requires some time to develop a feeling for that.

    I prime my models with my airbrush. First black and then some white as you can see here: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-oiu88bUm85g/USkZxiNJXKI/AAAAAAAAHHg/uhLdUWniyIQ/s1600/002.JPG

  5. So that will achieve the awesome khaki-type color you got for the clothes? The paintjob is so darn impressive, I just want to make sure I can nail that clothing color you achieved.

    Did you mix the devlan mud with water at all? Did you do any drybrushing over the areas you washed?
    Thanks for your help!

    1. No, I didn't dilute the wash at all. But be careful: the new washes/shades darken the color beneath them much more than the older ones!

      And I never use any drybrushing on my minis except for the bases.
