How to paint the Blue Horrors of Tzeentch set
- Step 1: Prime the miniatures
Apply a thin, even coat of primer to the miniatures. You can use a black or white primer based on your desired color scheme. This helps the paint adhere better and provides a smooth surface for painting.
- Step 2: Basecoat the miniatures
Using a medium-sized brush, apply the base colors to each part of the miniatures. For example, you can use a bright blue like Caledor Sky for the blue Horrors and a vibrant red like Mephiston Red for the red Horrors. Apply the paint evenly, covering the entire area, and let it dry before moving on to the next step.
- Step 3: Apply washes for shading
Using a wash such as Drakenhof Nightshade for the blue Horrors and Carroburg Crimson for the red Horrors, apply it to the recesses and crevices of the miniatures. This adds depth and shadows to their features. Let the wash dry completely.
- Step 4: Highlight the miniatures
Using a lighter shade of the base color, apply highlights to the raised areas of the miniatures to create contrast and make the details stand out. For example, you can use Altdorf Guard Blue for highlighting the blue Horrors and Evil Sunz Scarlet for highlighting the red Horrors. Apply the highlights sparingly, focusing on the most prominent areas.
- Step 5: Add details and accents
Now it’s time to add additional details and accents to enhance the overall look of the miniatures. Use smaller brushes to paint details like the eyes, teeth, and claws. You can use colors like Yriel Yellow for the eyes and Rakarth Flesh for the teeth. Take your time and be patient while painting these intricate parts.
- Step 6: Paint the bases
To complete the miniatures, paint the bases. You can use a dark brown or gray for a basic base color. Then, drybrush with a lighter shade like Ushabti Bone to add texture and highlight the edges of the bases. You can also add small details like rocks, skulls, or bits of debris to make the bases more interesting.
- Step 7: Varnish and protect
Once you’re satisfied with the paintjob, apply a layer of varnish or a protective spray over the miniatures. This helps protect the paint and makes it more durable, ensuring your hard work lasts.
