How to paint the Atalan Jackals set
- Step 1: Skin
Start by painting the skin of the Atalan Jackals with a suitable skin color, such as Cadian Fleshtone or Kislev Flesh. Apply an even coat to cover the exposed skin areas.
- Step 2: Clothing
Next, focus on the clothing of the Atalan Jackals using Hoeth Blue or another vibrant blue shade of your choice. Apply this color carefully to their outfits, ensuring full coverage.
- Step 3: Armor
Moving on to the armor, use a metallic paint like Leadbelcher or Runefang Steel to create a metallic look. Carefully apply this paint to the armored sections of the miniatures.
- Step 4: Vehicles
For the bikes and ATV, use metallic paint for a realistic appearance. Leadbelcher or Iron Warriors are great choices for the metallic parts. Additionally, add red details to their bodies, using Blood For The Blood God or Evil Sunz Scarlet, to give them a striking and dynamic look.
- Step 5: Vehicle Details
Paint the headlights on the bikes and ATV with a bright yellow color like Yriel Yellow to make them stand out. You can add other details like iconography or hand painted skulls yourself. Be creative!
- Step 6: Wheels
Use Abaddon Black or any black paint you want to cover the wheels of the bikes and ATV. This will give them a sleek and sturdy appearance.
- Step 7: Other Details
For other small details like their guns, also apply Abaddon Black to keep the focus on the main colors and maintain a cohesive look.
- Step 8: Final Touches
Review your work and make any necessary touch-ups to ensure a clean and polished appearance for all the Atalan Jackals.
- Step 9: Weathering Effects (Optional)
For a weathered and battle-hardened look, you can apply weathering effects like Agrax Earthshade or Typhus Corrosion to add depth and character to the miniatures.
- Step 10: Varnish for Protection
To preserve your beautifully painted Atalan Jackals and protect them during gaming sessions, apply a layer of suitable varnish, like Munitorum Varnish.
