So many people ask about the blue on the weapons, so I decide to made a little SBS of the “Crystal” weapons for my Orc warband on Shadespire, I hope this will usefull for someone and share this little and easy tricks to all who love this great hobby :) 1. With a base of chaos black spray (Citadel) we put the first coat of Dark Sea Blue (Vallejo)
2. First wet and thin coat of Scurvy Green (vallejo). Always in direction from light to shadow, and then apply again another coat with less water and respect the broken parts of the weapon to keep it looking old and used.
3. Mix of Jade Green 50% and Scurvy Green 50% (both vallejo). And apply another one with 70% Jade and 30% Scurvy. ( Here you draw some lines in the dark area to make new scratches in the axe). Always thin and wet.
5. Mix 60% Foul green and 40% Jade Green (Both vallejo). And now, more soft to start drawing the highlights in the edges, all the top area and scratches. And finally, with only Jade Green paint the final lights. You can keep mixing it with white to get higher lights, or a glaze of some orange to get it a new an interesting contrast.
I hope this help someone and try to get new effects to his weapons :)
