Hey Guys n gals
I've been all over the net searching for info on fading the color. The thing is that I'm a 40k player and if I apply a "fadefilter" of sepia to the bluegrey of the space wolves it ends op as a filter as,the two colors are close to complementary.
What techniques(brighter colours for instance) would you apply and how.
I'm a big fan of the acrylics way as opposed to ename/spirits

Hi Martin,
Sorry If I did not understand you well, but what about airbrushing a lighter shade?

The thing is that when you paint war game minis you do more visible dramatic highlighting so a brighter layer of the base colour coul be mistaken for an overdone highlight

To achieve a more realistic highlight, start with the base color. Add a few drops of a lighter or darker shade to it. Bam! Highlights and shadows.
