Hi folks, I'm looking to do a recess shade on these pauldrons and don't know if it should shading the white or the light bronze.

Alternatively, any other suggestions for that area where the two colors meet?

Nuln Oil imo.

I would shade the upper portion down to the two corners as the recess of the bronze, and the lower portion as the white’s shade. The upper part isn’t really a recess for the white, and should have a brighter highlight except right where it meets the bronze pauldron rim, which should produce a very slight shadow from the rim itself.

I'd say two things:

  • Shade the white - this can be done with a Apothecary White mixed with Contrast Medium, concentrated toward the corners of the shoulderpad
  • Black-/brown-line the join between the white and bronze (you can use Agrax Earthshade, Nuln Oil, or an equivalent contrast paint)

++EDIT: You might want to watch Duncan Rhodes' video on his Void Knights chapter (white pad, black trim)

Agreed, that looks very nice! Also much better than my whites, which tend to be pretty flat - hoping to change that myself. What did you end up doing?

Thank you!
 
The base coat was Leadbelcher spray. I covered that with Grey Seer followed by three thin coats of Corax White (played that by ear due to how Corax White tends to revert to solid pigment and need so it's consistency is rarely the same between two uses). That's where I was with the initial pictures. I then did a roughly 60/40 mix of Contrast Medium and Apothecary White starting about 1/4 way down from the top point of each shoulder pad, pushing the pigment down to the bottom. I did that again, but then used a clean brush to draw away the paint to create more of a gradient (kind of like using a paper pencil (https://www.amazon.c...g/dp/B08BNGHKJF) to smudge graphite when doing shading work (chiaroscuro) with a pencil. I then applied Agrax Earthshade to the inner edge of the raised pauldron lip, used Corax White to clean up any of it that got too far out, and covered the clean up Corax White with the CM/Apothecary White mix. Not a perfect match with the area, but not noticeable from a distance compared to the Agrax Earthshade being a good millimeter into the should pad.
