I use an old toothbrush to scrub every piece, it takes ages, but preparation is key. Without the cleaning process, your painting will rub straight off...
Anyway, some progress, even if it is all preparation work. Hope this helps someone.
And if anyone was wondering how I come up with the Imperial High Gothic sounding names, Google Translate Latin helps out a lot, but their are High Gothic name gererators out there too for SM and Characters.. I was thinking along the lines of Dominus Mortem (Lord of Death), Dominus Exitum (Lord of Doom/Destruction) or Dominus Victoria (Lord of Victory), Dominus being latin for Lord, and it is a WarLORD just as the Warhound Canis Bellum meaning Wolf/Dog/Hound of War. How do they sound to you? Honorum was straight out of the Siege of Vraks book, along with Canis Praetor, paint schemes to match. Dominus Bellum is the name of Lord Halfpenny's Ex-Warlord, now Imperator Titan!
