Ok, so I forgot to take a before picture. Bit this is the moment of truth... I spray the whole thing with floor cleaner then a 50/50ish mixture 2 grime paints. After 45 minutes, I wipe it off. It's worked 99% of the time... the one time it failed it was catastrophic and I had to repaint the whole thing lol. Fingers crossed!

 

In other news, freehanding the symbol was very easy. It was my first time ever trying too! The fast attack badge wasnt hard either! I gave hime some checkered red white and  black on his knee, and same on his backpack. I hope it turns out well!

Fine work. Grittier than I prefer, but as the Reiver must crawl on the ground to scout for enemy positions, such heavy weathering is perfectly understandable.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

In the wise words of the Emperor... ZOOWEE-MAMA, does that look awesome! jabaeza, youve really outdone yourself! It looks fantastic!!!! 

I love the freehand work for the chapter badge and fast attack, you absolutely nailed it!!! WOW wub.gif drool.gif

The grit adds a pretty cool touch! If you dont mind, i want to try that technique when i make more units for the Knights of Damascus. I love the dirty look for the Reivers! Looks awesome! biggrin.png

Thanks brother! Im really glad you liked it! The technique is one I learned for painting imperial knights, and I thought I'd apply it to my iron lions.  Been doing it ever since! Below you'll find the paints I used for this mini, dakka dakka has a paint equivalence chart to help you out in color matching if you use a different brand. 
 
Reiver:
•Vallejo Game Color Leather Brown Primer (base color)
•Vallejo Game Color Khaki (pouch and skull base color)
•Vallejo Game Color Bone White (pouch and skull highlight)
•Vallejo Game Color Glorious Gold (gold parts)
•Vallejo Model Color Black, Metal Series ( body suit and blade color)
•Vallejo Game Color Chainmail (metallic highlights, bolter)
•Vallejo Game Color Dead White (whites lol)
•Vallejo Game Color Gory Red (red jaw and heraldry)
•Vallejo Game Color Black (heraldry)
•Vallejo Game Color Electric Blue (eyes)
•Vallejo Wash Sepia Wash (I don't recommend these washes. I have a set  and this is the third color I use from it.  Every time im very disappointed.  I'd recommend Citadel Aggrax Earth Shade over this.)
 
Base:
•Vallejo Game Color Leather Brown (primer)
•Vallejo Game Color Dark Flesh Tone (base)
•Vallejo Game Color Leather Brown (drybrush)
•Vallejo Game Color Khaki (drybrush)
•Vallejo Game Color Bone White (drybrush)
•Vallejo Wash Sepia Wash
 
For the grime, a tutorial:
 
•after all your painting is done, you need to airbrush your mini with a floor cleaner.  I use Pledge Floor Finish, the guy I learned it from used a different cleaner, with same effect. Any similar product should work. The cleaner will also serve like a varnish protective coat. 
 
•once it's all dry, I mix (eyeballed) 50/50 of these 2 paints into my airbrush
IMG 0021
They have multiple colors, maybe you want to yet a direct combo.
•spray the whole model ( I included the base on yours because of the planet surface being similar to the armor, on my iron lions i only spray the model before attaching to the base).  Make sure you get every spot.  As you can see, the model will look almost completely brown
IMG 0022
•wait 45 minutes
•Get a paper towel and qtip. Wipe down with the paper towel over all surfaces. Take care to leave some on recesses, and parts that you want extra grimy.  Use the qtip for those hard to reach areas. Do not wipe hard.  Ive taken off paint before because I wad too rough with it. 
•you'll need to touch up some spots. Mainly the eyes, but feel free to go after anything you want brighter
•done!

Thanks so much, brother!!! This gives me a fairly appropriate guideline for my own paint scheme! Vallejo paints are accessible to me, so no worries there. However, I agree with the washes. Citadel and Army Painter have that area down pat for me msn-wink.gif.

Would it be possible to substitute the cleaner varnish with a simple matt varnish or does the cleaner have a specific effect outside of that?

 

Again, thanks so much for all the work you put into bringing these guys to life and sharing your recipe. I find using multiple techniques and paint styles makes an army look unique and not so much like perfectly manicured Space Marines biggrin.png (not that there's anything wrong with that.).

No problem! Feel free to use this as a base on how you van make your recipe.

On the topic of varnish, idk. I would get a piece of sprue or something spare and just varnish it, then spray the mixture. See if it works. I wouldn't test on a painted mini in case it doesn't work
