This is a Space Wolf test model I've been working on for a long time. It has been stripped and re-painted several times, but I finally achieved a tone of blue-grey for the armour that I'm happy with. It was surprisingly difficult to achieve this.

Please let me know what you think in the comments. If folks like it and want to know how it was done, I will produce a guide and do the same for the other loyalist legions.


  • Looks really good.
    I would Love to See a Tutorial for dark Angels because I have Problems with that Green. I don’t want it top be too Green.. darker Looks better in my opinion


    • There will be a Dark Angel coming soon! I already have colours I’m happy with, and my scheme will be quite dark and sinister, so I’m sure you’ll like it!

  • Not sure if I missed it somewhere but the yellow on this SW, which btw we all definitely want a tutorial on, but the yellow looks very close to how you do the yellow on the Raptors. I was just wondering if that was in a tutorial or buried in some comments somewhere I missed? Thanks keep up the great work!

    • Thanks Travis! When painting the yellow ‘by hand’ (brush painting) as on this shoulder pad, I base with Vallejo Model Colour 70877 Gold Brown and then add layers mixing in 70953 Flat Yellow up to pure Flat Yellow. Finally a wash with Reikland Fleshshade to blend it all in, shade it and make it deeper and richer.

  • Looks awesome! I’ve got a large SW force that has been waiting to be painted for almost a decade now. I would love a tutorial on how you did that! I might play with subbing colors from your raptor guide and see if I can make anything work.

    • I use a product called Biostrip 20. The stuff is fantastic – it’s non-toxic, doesn’t smell, will go through paint, varnish and primer in an hour, and not affect the plastic at all.
