How to paint the Burna-Bommer set
- Step 1: Basecoat the Hull
Start by applying a basecoat of a bright yellow paint, such as Averland Sunset, to the entire hull of the Burna-Bommer. Use a large brush or an airbrush for quick and even coverage.
- Step 2: Shade the Hull
Apply a wash, like Agrax Earthshade or Seraphim Sepia, to the recessed areas of the hull to add depth and definition. Use a medium-sized brush to carefully apply the wash, ensuring it settles into the crevices and panel lines.
- Step 3: Highlight the Hull
Using a lighter shade of yellow, such as Flash Gitz Yellow, highlight the raised edges and prominent areas of the hull. Use a fine detail brush to carefully pick out the details and create a subtle gradient effect.
- Step 4: Paint the Details
Use appropriate colors to paint the details of the Burna-Bommer, such as the cockpit, engine exhausts, and weaponry. For example, you can paint the cockpit with a dark color like Abaddon Black, the exhausts with a metallic color like Leadbelcher, and the weaponry with a fiery color like Evil Sunz Scarlet.
- Step 5: Weathering
To add a weathered look to the Burna-Bommer, dry brush some brown or rust colors, such as Dryad Bark or Skrag Brown, onto the hull. This will simulate dirt, grime, and wear on the vehicle.
- Step 6: Final Touches
Add additional details, such as Ork glyphs or weathering effects, using appropriate colors and techniques. You can also apply decals or transfers to further personalize your Burna-Bommer.
- Step 7: Varnish
Apply a matte varnish to the entire model to protect the paintwork and provide a uniform finish.
