How to paint the Beastboss set
- Step 1: Prime Your Model
Begin by applying a thin and even coat of primer to your Beastboss model. This will create a smooth surface for the paint to adhere to.
- Step 2: Basecoat the Skin
Using a brush, apply a base color to the skin of the Beastboss. For example, you can use a green color like Waaagh! Flesh or a brown color like Dryad Bark. Apply the basecoat evenly, covering all areas of the skin.
- Step 3: Highlight the Skin
Choose a lighter shade of the base color and use a smaller brush to highlight the raised areas of the skin. This will add depth and definition to the model. For example, if the base color is Waaagh! Flesh, you can use a lighter green shade like Warboss Green or a pale brown shade like Baneblade Brown for the highlights.
- Step 4: Paint the Armor and Clothing
Using a brush, apply the desired colors to the Beastboss’ armor and clothing. You can use metallic colors like Leadbelcher or bold colors like Mephiston Red. Apply the paint evenly, covering all areas of the armor and clothing.
- Step 5: Add Details and Accents
Use a fine-tipped brush to paint the smaller details and accents on the Beastboss, such as the teeth, eyes, and ornaments. Use appropriate colors for each detail. For example, you can use a bone color like Zandri Dust for the teeth, a white color like White Scar for the eyes, and metallic colors for the ornaments.
- Step 6: Wash for Depth
Apply a wash to the model to create shadows and enhance the details. For example, you can use a brown wash like Agrax Earthshade or a black wash like Nuln Oil. Apply the wash to the recessed areas and allow it to flow into the crevices.
- Step 7: Fine-tune the Details
After the wash has dried, use a fine-tipped brush to clean up any areas that may have been smudged or over-painted. This step will help refine the details and make them stand out.
- Step 8: Base the Model
Consider adding texture to the base of your Beastboss model to enhance its appearance. You can use texture paints or other materials to create a realistic base. For example, you can use Stirland Mud texture paint and add small rocks or foliage for extra detail.
- Step 9: Varnish for Protection
To protect your painted model, apply a layer of varnish. Choose between matte or gloss varnish based on your preference. Follow the instructions on the varnish can for proper application.
