I initially undercoated this dynamic sculpt of a Poor Fellow-Soldier of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon with “Citadel” Abaddon Black in order to create a nice foundation for his heavy chainmail, leggings and boots. All his armour was then painted with "Vallejo" Gunmetal and washed with "Citadel" Nuln Oil. Whilst his footwear, belt and straps were painted using a combination of "Vallejo" Heavy Sienna and “The Army Painter” Strong Tone Quickshade.
As I wanted the warrior to be wearing a white tunic, but balked at the idea of applying some red chevrons to it as illustrated in the skirmish game's rulebook, I gave the knight's clothing two coats of "Vallejo" White and then simply washed these areas with the transparent acrylic Pale Grey.
Finally I concentrated upon the Templar's side-dagger and sword. The hilt of his double-handed weapon was painted using "Vallejo" Gold and more Strong Tone Quickshade. However as I wanted his weapons' blades to stand out somewhat from his dark(ish) chainmail and helmet, I picked them out using "Citadel" Ironbreaker, shaded them with Nuln oil and then highlighted them with a little more Ironbreaker.
Well it wouldn't be a Monday with out a Frostgrave post or two. Today we have one so far, and it's not from Adam! I like the armour effects that you achieved Simon. It is tempting to get lured in by shiny armour, but I suspect that well used armour would be much closer to the effect that you have achieved. The tunic has some nice shading. However, I do encourage you to try a bit of livery next time out. Worst comes to worst you can always paint it a dark solid colour overtop!
