Painting Grey Knights Terminators

So the paint scheme I used for my Grey Knight Paladin Wing for Blog Wars was simple but effective but above all with the time constraints I had from the Blog Wars Challenge it was quick!
I had quite a few compliments at Blog Wars about how good these guys looked so I figured I'll give you a how to guide for painting Grey Knights quickly but effectively.

Colours you will need:
Mithril Silver
Mechrite Red
Blood Red
Dwarf Bronze
Commando Khaki
Bleached Bone
Skull White
Gryphonne Sepia
Devlan Mud
Khemri Brown
Chaos Black
Boltgun Metal

Main Grey Colour of Model...
Step 1:
Undercoat model with black primer, followed by an approximate mix of 2 parts Chaos Black to 1 part Boltgun Metal (if you're confident with an airbrush this will give a quicker result, otherwise build your layers up slowly to avoid losing details and seeing brush strokes).
Step 2:
Drybrush Mithril Silver over the entire mini.










Shoulder Pauldrons & gold detailing...
Step 1: 
Paint Dwarf Bronze as a base.
Step 2:
Wash Gryphonne Sepia over the gold (2 - 3 fine passes).
Step 3:
Drybrush Shining Gold to pick out lettering detail while keeping recesses dark.










Purity Seal Stamp, Storm bolter/Heavy Weapon + Nemesis Force Weapon handle...
Step 1:
Paint your own personal selection of details Mechrite Red.
Step 2:
Use Blood Red to Pick out extreme Highlights.











Bone Details...
Step 1:
Paint Khemri Brown as a base.
Step 2:
Use Bleached bone to bring out the colour of the bone leaving Khemri Brown in darkest areas.
Step 3:
Lightly drybrush Skull white.
Step 4:
Wash Devlan Mud over model to dull back down colours

Parchment...
Step1:
Paint Khemri Brown as a base.
Step 2:
Use Commando Khaki as second layer leaving Khemri Brown in the darkest areas.
Step 3:
Drybrush Skull White lightly.
Step 4:
Wash with Devlan Mud over miniature to dull the colours back down.

 And there we have it a simple yet effective colour scheme which looks suitably dark and nasty on the battlefield!
