This guide is for the armor plating on Kraweld the Siege Giant but can be used for many other metals too. It gives a great weathered and tarnished look and is fairly easy. The key lies in always keeping your paints nice and thin, and taking your time.
The guide uses Citadel Colour, and The Army Painter paint ranges
Step 1: Basecoat the armour in Rhinox Hide
Step 2: Stipple with Rough Iron. When stippling, the smaller your dots the better the effect will be. Think of your brush like a tattoo gun stabbing up and down rather than smearing and spreading like you normally would.
Step 3: Stipple with Weapon Bronze, leaving the Rough Iron in the deeper recesses of the armor.
Step 4: Apply an even coat of Nuln Oil to tone down the shine and provide more shading.
Step 5: Stipple Bright Gold on the raised areas of the armor plates.
Step 6: Stipple Shining Silver on the edges of the armor plates and highest points of the raised areas.
Step 7: Wash with Agrax Earthshade to tone down the highlights, dirty it up and bring them together.
Step 8: Add tarnishes in watered down Hydra Turquoise to some recesses and areas, don’t go overboard at first, you can always add more later!
Step 9: In the centre of the Turquoise spots add a dab of Toxic Mist and your Beaten Brass Armor is complete!
