I love them, a very clean look, I normally hate silver "grey" knights, but the cleanliness, while still looking gothiclyness (heh...) just blows me away, I cannot wait to see the rest of your army! (post pics! all the other people are just too shy to say that!)

Kudos,
~BOF

P.S. I love the little nurgling waving his fist at the huge dread, classic!

Hi! Finally I have finished my first GK dread with the first set of weapons, still have an assaultcanon and a CC-arm to go. After that I have one more dread to paint.

Concerning the painting of metal
1. Boltgun metal
2. Black ink
3. Blue ink
4. Boltgun metal (thin)
5. Chainmail (thin)
6. Mithril (thin) maybe 2 layers

Concerning robes i use 2 colors and goes from the dark color and adding a amount of the lighter one in each step. Regulary between 5-10 layers. Importen is to have very thin paints and not to small brush.

And the pictures

Nice! I normally dont like silver colored Grey Knights either but these did come out sweet... I usually wish people will do gold ones or some other color not so.. shiney.. but these do look very good..

This army took me over a year to paint, to long but I am very happy with the result. Probably will add a psycannon Grandmaster, 2-3 Terminators with thunderhammers and a Land Raider.

Wow, there is nothing like the look of a completed army! Congrats on finishing it man, they look sweet. The bases really tie it all together, and bring a ruined, overgrown sanctuary look to the army. Awesome work!

Really love your army, I wanted to do a pure GK army at one point but got bored with painting silver! The silver looks fantastic, I tip my hat to you sir!

And I love the nurgling on the dreadnought base (not sure if hes running away from it or squaring up to it?)

awesome army, and the silvers dont overwhelm me like i would have imagined a GK army would. they work very well actually. cool bases too. now if i could only finish mine allready...
in this world there are two kinds of people: those who think there are two kinds of people and those who think there are three kinds of people. the rest arent really people.


ponder away...

Quick question about the paint scheme, bodde: when you did the black and blue inks, how thinned down were they?

BTW, those are some awesome mini's. Perfect Grey Knights. -MT

Very nice indeed! I did at one point believe that I would make a pure Grey Knights army but their fate was very much the same as the fate of rivers3162 army, I got bored with painting silver... Again, your army looks great.

Nice mini's.

I love the painting, really crisp - although it maybe needs some litanies on the purity seals and such.

Any chance of work in progress shots/tutorial on the bases?

Congratulations.

Hi again!

I have bought some new GK figures now and will add them to my army later this year
1. Grand Master with psycannon
2. GK terminator with Thunderhammers
3. A GK landraider with options to make the normal one and the crusader patterna also.

Today I added a tutorial for my bases.

Cheers

Nice basing tutorial, simple yet effective. Great army as well. Are you planning on converting anything or are you more a painter by heart?

Thank you Mel. I think I'm more a painter. I only do small additional features to my figures.
