I grabbed a Stormwall over 12 months ago, but only recently unboxed it. Partially because I was not sure how I planned to paint it, partially because the model intimidated me a little. Once I decided to work on it, I thought about how much I would want to play it – and Operation Stormy Seas was born.
The scheme came out of a desire to try something more grey scale in an effort to work on my contrast, shading and highlighting. After using this scheme across a couple of models in this army, I have now started going darker with many of my shades on other models. I think I’ll also start going brighter too.
I use 11 paints in total.
- Abaddon Black (GW)
- Eshin Grey (GW)
- Dawnstone (GW)
- Administratum Grey (GW)
- White (Vallejo)
- Leadbelcher (GW)
- Mithril Silver (GW)
- Balthasar Gold (GW)
- Armour Wash (P3) and/or Heavy Body Black Wash (Secret Weapon)
- Agrax Earthshade (GW)
- Cygnar Blue Highlight
Before we get to the pictures, this is the army that I will be using with the Stormwall – see if you can spot a theme. I’ll add the rest of the models as I paint them.
