This tutorial shows how to paint damage and wear effects on an Imperial Knight from Warhammer 40k (Games Workshop), following a few simple steps.
The Imperial Knight has been customized with green putty and parts from the Iron Wolf Minis Company.
First of all, it is important to mention that the complete tutorial of this imperial knight can be found in issue 15 of Fantasy Figures International magazine, where this IK also appeared on the cover.
And now we start with this tutorial:
Small chips are created on the armor, using Model Color German Camouflage Black Brown Camouflage 70.822 with a brush.
It is also possible to create wear and tear effects by using Vallejo Environment Rust Texture 73.821 with a small sponge.
Follow the same steps in the rest of the figure. Model Color Vermilion 70.909 is used for the red areas with a bit of white to highlight some points.
These same pigments are used on the metal arms of the Imperial Knight.
It should be noted that I used Artis Opus M Series number 1 for this battle damage.
The final result is shown below:
