I've got some Trukks and Wagons to paint and came across this while looking for inspiration:



I really like the shading that's been done on the tusks at the front, but after several failed attempts I can't recreate anything like it. Can anyone advise how you might do this? The closest I've come is using Tin Bitz as a base and the shading up with Dwarf Bronze but if I try to mix white in there it just goes murky brown.

From the pic, it looks like Non Metallic Metal (or NMM). Grey through white for the silver look and light brown or orange to a near black or dark brown for the other.

An easier option is metallic basecoat followed by many many washes of badab black or ogryn flesh. After highlight the edges with mithril silver.

The effect is achieved with glazes... thinned down paint mixed with matte medium layered many many many times. A tricky technique... but it can also be done with washes. This effect may be in the new 'eavy Metal Masterclass. I just picked it up, I'll see if it is there and get back to this thread.

You can do rough glazing with thin coats of paint + water, as well. It's much easier to control if you're using proper medium, though! Vallejo has special Glaze Medium, I have no idea if it differs much from standard matte medium, but it feels pretty nice.

Using color gradients is something I'm trying to learn at the moment, too. You can actually use them pretty much everywhere for that smooth, professional look.
