WARLORD - Part 17, More Painterly!

Another week, another update (although I expect there'll be two next week).

This time I've painted about 70% of the torso, and it is really starting to come together : )

I hope you enjoy.



  1. Heya, this is Justin from, I'm also building a warlord. Super helpful videos! I'm about to start my own gold trim, and am having problems with the new GW metallics... thin coats = no coverage, and thick coats dry 'chunky.' What paint(s) / techniques are you using to lay down your gold trim on this scale? Thanks in advance for any pointers! :)

    1. hi Justin, try retributor armour (the newish) GW gold. Fantastic coverage straight out the pot, it's helping my Makabuis Knights trim no end.

    2. For my gold trim I start with a layer of Vallejo Games Color Hammered Copper, followed by a highlight of VGC Glorious Gold, and a final highlight of a mix of Glorious Gold and VMA Aluminium. Where needed I'll add a thin wash of purple.

    3. Thanks! I'll try both. I think I have a pot of the retributor armor that I just picked up in the hopes that it'd be better than the other stuff. I'll also pick up the VGC colors. I'm going to be doing approximately a million linear inches of armor trim so might as well spend some time carefully choosing the gold recipe. :)

  2. It looks gorgeous. Im sure that it will rain death upon the enemies of the Emperor!

  3. This is starting to give The Grave Guns Legio Astorium, and Drake Setas Legio Morris WLT's a run for their money. No suprise your getting happy with the build!
