Knight Errant Nathaniel Garro

Ladies, Gentlemen and Bunnies

Here is the Knight Errant, the Legion of one, Nathaniel Garro. 

I have finished Nathaniel Garro, and here is how:

Undercoat him Black first. Then with an airbrush I sprayed a layer of Iron Hand steel. Then did a Zenithal highlight with the airbrush of Mithril silver. 
I then purity sealed the model to dull it. 

 Then to portray that the gold curiass and eagle were slightly old and ornamental, I used Vallejo old gold. Shake well and very very regularly. 

After this stage I raised the model up with layers of Iron Breaker, to Mithril silver. Then a targeted recess wash of Nuln oil before Tamiya chrome Zenithal drybrush and edge highlight.

The text on the bottom of the shin and the whole sword is grey Knight steel (Forge World) which gives a great blue / silver flip. 

Beneath the each level of the wings I did a Druchi violet wash then added a edge highlight on the highest lines of Mithril silver using the side of a brush. 
The gold was washed with a slightly thinned Agrax Earhshade. 

The sword was given a drybrush of Mithril silver after a couple of washes of Nuln oil to bring the text out. 

The cloak was layers of Corax black. 

So there we go. Thanks for reading :)

  1. quite nice. simple and clean. like the spot color on the sword handle. my Garro is arriving soon. can't wait. I plan to pick out the hoses and other minor details with a bronze or brass, just to give him more of a steampunk feel, but I like what you've done here. great work.

    1. Thanks Mike. Yeah I get you. Love a bit of the steampunk vibe! You must love Solar Auxilia?

  2. Wow - he looks awesome! Great work Drake!

    Is that Lil' Bunnies daemon engine? :)

    1. Yup. She does some damn good painting. She did it on her own too (first vehicle with my technique reccomendation).

    2. That's pretty awesome! Love the exhausts :)

    1. Lol. Great name. Thanks and welcome :)

    2. I had a look at the Forgeworld site, and Dear Emperor, £45 for one figure? Puts your lavish paint job into a bit of context it does.

  4. Hi drake, I prefer yours to the official FW catalogue model. The face is painted way better. Glad you gave a couple of diorama shots too.

  5. Easily had me fooled that this was the original one. Well done.
