So its been a almost a month since i've browsed the forums... ya'll make it hard to get stuff done if i do...:huh:

Anywho, encouraged or emboldened by my last attempt at the dark side paint scheme of black on black and looking through here... when it came time to make a Black Guard (dark paladin, black knight) for my campaign i went full hog on the shader technique i tried with the Tiefling Warlock... ok... so turns out dark paladins with warhorses are a bit hard to come by how i wanted it... soooo I picked up a "chaotic" knight made by "Those who's Shop shall not be purchased from" but i got em on the cheap cheap and new so paintover wasnt needed. So please try to stab in the non-vitals when the mob inevitably forms.... IMG_6730.thumb.JPG.bfea48de7510fbfe1e733d7684798aab.JPGIMG_6731.thumb.JPG.2debb9d7a710565a00c74695083812d3.JPGIMG_6732.thumb.JPG.eb0c31ee5d83d347c4eb7d640f6f711a.JPGIMG_6733.thumb.JPG.120e5efbaa2e97491bb6a165aba8412d.JPG

All was done with a base of vallejo black primer, then chain mail silver, followed by one heavy layer of army painter dark tone wash before applying the wash in layers in intentional spots. With the exception of the shield which was painted black on its front first. And the leather grips on his "glaive". 

His Warhorse was done the same:IMG_6725.thumb.JPG.3a8de9e0422700b8eb4c56f57b29921b.JPGIMG_6726.thumb.JPG.0bc5a35efb5be9eb05b785eb22ab1c9c.JPGIMG_6727.thumb.JPG.3b17636a56ab0d49e2e7d2488b3f2405.JPGIMG_6748.thumb.JPG.f6fe46ee5418dbcde418552473b99485.JPG

I've just started dry brushing somber grey/black mix over the black on the legs and exposed areas. It is starting to give it a kind of midnight blue/black look. Also took the opportunity to try my hand at minis with magnets since the horse probably wont last the encounter.




Not really sure what i wanna do for bases yet. did also notice a spot that was missed due to the sticky tac over lapin the model when taking these pics... so gotta fix that. As always ideas, criticisms, thoughts welcomed.

Pretty cool.  Not sure how you resisting putting in at least a splash of color but he looks good.

 Well... if you consider red a splash then he has some ... deep in the eye sockets... kind of as a reference point possibly for future. He is a black knight after all... and i'm a bit mundane i suppose in that i like my dark paladins/fallen knights etc dark... like so far from the light it retreats from them dark if i could... but it is unfinished and the game is tomorrow, so i'm not going to rush him... who knows once the games done what could happen.::D:
