I can't seem to recall if you said how you painted the white. The lining looks just perfect.

I can't even get my red looking like that. It really is fantastic, and the subdued basing is a great contrast.

Thanks!

My recipe for painting white:
- Dheneb stone basecoat
- dark brown ink wash (Devlan Mud/Agrax Eartshade)
- highlight with Dheneb stone/white mix
- final highlight with pure white
- weathering with Charadon granite
- very light sepia glaze

This results in a subtle off-white, not the glaring white you see in the photos. Try as I might, I never succeed in capturing the real colour when taking pictures :-[

It sure has been a while :-[

I could use a whole list of excuses, but the truth is simply that I got fed up with all that white. So I painted a couple of Dreadball models, some Goblins for Kings of War, some other stuff. But last January, I revisited my Death Guard. Maybe a single Dreadnought, I thought, just to find out if I could ever return to painting white. The result? Well... ;D

The first wave of reinforcements: some more Contemptor Dreads and a Deredeo

Predators

And their buddies: Scorpius, Plasmapred and Hyperios

A Javelin squadron - fantastic models, a real joy to paint!
