I recently ordered some more Purity Seals from Forgeworld.
What I do like is the act that they are easy to cut out and use. I know it is possible to make your own using paper and Green Stuff, but for quality and ease of use, these Forgeworld ones are a winner for me. Oh and you get the skulls as well.
I have been painting the purity seals on my Grey Knights.
I used a light brown foundation paint for the paper of the seals and the red for the wax and then highlighted with normal Citadel colour.
I also took the opportunity to add some “burn” weathering to the flamer.
I have also been tidying up the armour connectors and painting them in Chaos Black over the drybrushed Boltgun Metal in order to make the armour look a little smarter and neater.
It’s getting there, but I better get the crew done soon.
I am making some progress on my Grey Knights Landspeeder. Having done the purity seals I painted the skulls with a light brown foundation paint, I will be highlighting these with bleached bones.

Having finished off the red wax on my Grey Knights Landspeeder I set about adding writing to the paper parts of the purity seals.
I used a watered down Chaos Black for the writing.
I am okay with the end result, but would have liked to have done some finer writing, so I may try again.
I also took the opportunity to paint the Inquisitorial book on the front with a red foundation paint.
This needs some tidying up as well.
Having painted the paper parts of the purity seals on my Grey Knights Landspeeder I highlighted the seals with Bleached Bone and Skull White.
I then painted the wax seals. I used the red foundation paint for this (as I had used a black undercoat). I then highlighted the seals with normal Citadel Colour, Blood Red.
I will need to do the writing next.
I have been tidying up my Grey Knights.
I am trying to get them finished before I start on some more.
Having finished most of the metal bodywork on my Grey Knights Landspeeder I went and painted the purity seals using a Foundation Paint.
It covered the black undercoat really well compared to normal Citadel colour. There are quite a few on the model, I used the resin purity seals available from Forgeworld rather than make my own. You can make your own using paper and green stuff for the seals, but the Forgeworld ones are much easier to use and I think much better than I could do.
When I was editing the photographs for this blog entry I was quite pleased with the way the metal finish appeared (in close-up) on the Landspeeder body.
This was done with Boltgun Metal. I still need to add some highlights.
