same methods I used on some Super Heavy tanks I painted earlier this year, using methods learned in the Forgeworld Book, Imperial Armour Masterclass: Book One.
The idea behind this method it is to add a lot of scratches with a gray color to show the Conquest's paint has been scratched down to the primer. After that is completed, I'll highlight the scratches with a bright metal color to show that some of the scratches went down to the bare metal.
This is where the model started the evening. Nice and clean, but not very realistic for something that spends it's time crushing the enemies of the Empress. .
