The Lord of the Things

Another update!I’ve been putting off doing my grail knights, mostly because I want to do them as well as I possibly can, and I still don’t really trust myself with barding.  Anyways, I got the idea for the knights to drape their horses with what basically amounts to huge purity seals: I’ve always loved the weathered paper look on miniatures, and it seems appropriate for these ancient, saintly knights.
I did this method on a test model first, as you can see, and now I’m gonna do the same to the knight proper. Wish me luck, Tumbles. 
Oh, and here’s how I painted it, more or less:
Ratskin Flesh Basecoat
1:1 mix of Ratskin Flesh and Ushabti Bone
Layer of Ushabti Bone
Wash of Seraphim Sepia
More Ushabti Bone
Final Screaming Skull Highlight
Eshin Grey scrollwork
Final Seraphim Sepia wash
Of course, throughout this entire process, I was going for a tattered look, with light layers of slowly brightening colours done with almost-dry downward strokes, leaving some spots untouched.
