After a short hiatus, the Bane Knight Guide returns. For Part 1 click here. Now on with step 3!
We only have 2 areas of the models left to paint, the rest of the armor and the skeletal parts(head and hands).
Step 3 – Silver Armor
These parts of the armor are intertwined with the gold parts we have already painted and we want those gold parts to shine so we will go with a very simple silver technique.
After that all we do is give the areas a coat of Badab Black wash(see pictures for the next step). It’s that easy!
Step 4 – Skeletal Areas
And for the last step I went a little more intricate(read: not drybrushing and washing). I put down a Graveyard Earth basecoat. I may have done the eyes with a dot of white and a green wash but that’s not necessary.
Next I highlighted these parts with Kommando Khaki. I painted everything but the recesses.
Finally I throw a Devlan Mud wash on the bone sections to dirty them up a bit and as an easy way to mask quick highlights.
As an alternative to the Skeletal section, for my Bane Thralls I did these parts at the same time as and with the same steps as the ghostly green cloth. It makes them look like ghostly skeletons, and saves you a step.
And there you have it, your quick and dirty, 2 part Bane Knight painting guide.
I am actually really enjoying my Cryx because I have told myself that I will just get them out on the table painted. I am not painting models individually, I am doing them with a system and in batches. I followed this same concept for Pistol Wraiths, Bane Thralls, Mortenebra and Deryliss, and Asphyxious. I would also make sense for Soulhunters, Ghost Pirates and I’m sure a number of other Cryx models. Spending a lot of time painting models can be fun, but I think I’ll take having a painted army instead.
