I wish you lot had warned me what was I getting into. I'm getting obsessed with buying different paints (got some washes on the way to paint my Gelatinous Cube - meant to be my Father's Day present).

Oh, and I wish I had the time to like every photo that gets posted. There's some amazing stuff there. Colour me impressed.

I'm washing with Agrax, but maybe that's the wrong wash?
Depends if you want that dirty look, it probably suits these models though.

i use cassandora yellow on my eldar, the problem is you have to go back in and highlight the fu** out of them to bring the colour back up thats why I only recess shade vehicles.

The one second from the right is full wash then highlight. One attempt at dry brushing that model did nothing that I could see. The others are various levels of targeted wash with a fine detail brush.

Yellow is just a campaigner of a colour especially the citadel yellows even through an airbrush yriel yellow sucks.

It honestly takes between 4 and 9280790384290890 coats to get a solid colour

I do like the grimey look on those models though would be weird to have pristine yellow hazmat suits imo
