How to paint the Cadian Castellan set
- Step 1: Prepare Your Workspace
Set up a clean and well-lit area to work on your miniature. Gather all the necessary tools and paints, making sure they are easily accessible.
- Step 2: Prime the Miniature
Apply a thin and even coat of Chaos Black spray primer to the Cadian Castellan. This will create a solid base for the paint to adhere to.
- Step 3: Base Colors
Begin by applying the base colors to the miniature. Use Cadian Fleshtone for the skin and Zamesi Desert for any cloth or accents. Apply thin layers of paint, allowing each layer to dry before moving on to the next.
- Step 4: Details and Highlights
Add details to the Cadian Castellan using different colors. Use Straken Green for the armor and Rhinox Hide for the boots and straps. Apply Zandri Dust for any pouches or belts. Paint the sword with Stormhost Silver and add a bit of Talassar Blue at the base.
- Step 5: Washes
Apply washes to add depth and shading to the miniature. Use Agrax Earthshade for the skin and cloth parts, and Nuln Oil for the armor and boots. Apply the washes carefully, allowing them to flow into the recesses to create shadows and definition.
- Step 6: Fine Details
Focus on the finer details of the Cadian Castellan. Use Retributor Armour for any gold details and White Scar for painting symbols or insignia. Take your time and use a fine brush for precision.
- Step 7: Base and Finish
Paint the base of the miniature using Astrogranite Debris for texture. Once the paint is dry, you can add grass, rocks, or other scenic elements to enhance the base. Finally, apply a coat of Munitorum Varnish to protect your paint job and give the miniature a professional finish.
