How to paint the Broodcoven set
- Step 1: Genestealer Familiars and Patriarch Skin
Begin by applying a smooth and even base coat of Daemonette Hide to the skin areas of the Genestealer Familiars and Patriarch. Ensure complete coverage for a solid foundation to build upon.
- Step 2: Shade the Skin
With a steady hand, carefully apply a wash of Druchii Violet over the Daemonette Hide base on the skin areas. This wash will flow into the recesses, adding depth and shadows to the skin tones, giving them a more lifelike and organic appearance.
- Step 3: Armor for Genestealer Familiars and Patriarch
Using your brush, skillfully paint their armor with Kantor Blue, ensuring neat and even coverage. This vibrant blue will give them a distinct and striking look on the battlefield.
- Step 4: Shade the Armor
Apply a thin layer of Nuln Oil wash over the armor, focusing on the recesses and crevices. This shading step will add depth and definition to the armor plates, making them stand out even more.
- Step 5: Primus and Magus Robes
For Primus and Magus, pick up your brush and confidently paint their robes in a vibrant red color. Choose either Evil Sunz Scarlet or Mephiston Red to create a bold and eye-catching appearance.
- Step 6: Metallics
Use a fine brush to carefully apply metallic paint like Leadbelcher or Runefang Steel to the metallic elements on Primus and Magus, such as their weapons, buckles, or staff heads. Take your time to achieve clean and precise lines.
- Step 7: Skin for Primus and Magus
Using a delicate touch, paint their skin with a pallid color like Pallid Wych Flesh, creating a ghastly appearance for these two characters. Remember to highlight the prominent areas gently for a more realistic effect.
- Step 8: Details
Diligently use various other colors for the vast amounts of details on the miniatures. For instance, use Screamer Pink for intricate designs, White Scar for sharp teeth, Averland Sunset for runes, and Waystone Green for insignias. These details will add character and depth to your models.
- Step 9: Finishing Touches
Take a moment to thoroughly examine your work and make any necessary touch-ups to ensure a clean and polished appearance for all the miniatures in the Broodcoven set. Attention to detail is key!
- Step 10: Varnish for Protection
To preserve your hard work and protect your beautifully painted miniatures, apply a layer of Munitorum Varnish. This essential step will seal and protect the paintwork, ensuring they stay in great condition for many battles to come.
