These bright metallic swords were subsequently dulled down using "The Army Painter" Strong Tone Quickshade and had their keen edges 'highlighted' with a thorough dry-brush of (more) "Vallejo" Gold. This process allowed me to then ‘tidy up’ any frustrating splashes of “Vallejo” Gold I had inadvertently deposited on their horns, hands, hooves, spines and sword hilts with a little “Citadel” Abaddon Black.
A bold treatment, Doctor Simon. Some bloodletting will surely make Ev feel better by balancing his sanguine humour.
That's a bloody great blood colour you've given these figures. I've got pots of VJ Heavy Red and AP Strong Tone and will note this combo down for future use.
