Paints used: Vallejo, Reaper Master Series, Games Workshop Washes, Com Art Medea Airbrush
Paint Brushes: Rosemary & Co. Raphael 8040, Broken Toad Brushes

The base for the grey armour was given a base coat of Blue Gray Smoke from the Com Art Medea Airbrush range and gradually highlighted with white.  Large flat surfaces tend to be rather boring, especially in grey, so in order to liven the piece up a bit I washed very thin layers of purple and red into the shadows and turquoise into the lighter highlighted parts. This created a faux non metallic metal effect that I was quite pleased with. I then took the thinnest brush I could to paint very fine scratches over the armour. 

I washed several layers of red into the recess' of Krom's face to mirror his crimson cloak. The Cloak really stands out against the grey armour and the cool tones of the base, helping define the ferocious character of Krom.
