190th Breacher Squad "Victus"


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

These Iron Hands form part of a much larger commission for a high quality Heresy army. Because of the limited palette of the Iron Hands painting them in a visually interesting way proved to be a challenge. Apologist wrote a wonderful article detailing his thoughts on the effectiveness of a limited palette here. I decided to use teal and umber weathering powders to contrast with the black and silver. My aim was to draw your eye to the teal and then let the beautiful detail of the miniature reveal itself to the viewer. The weathering powder gives the nice impression of rust. I also used a high contrast scheme for the black to help bring out the sculpt on a dark colour scheme.
