How to paint the Deathwing Knights Squad
- Step 1: Base Coat
Step one is to apply the base coat to the Deathwing Knights Squad’s armor. Paint it in a sandy color like Zandri Dust or another shade you want. Apply thin coats to preserve the model’s details.
- Step 2: Shading the Armor
To add depth and dimension to the sandy armor, apply a shade like Agrax Earthshade or Seraphim Sepia. Use a fine detail brush to carefully apply the shade in the recessed areas, such as panel lines and crevices. This will create a natural shadow effect, making the sandy armor look more realistic.
- Step 3: Layering the Armor
After the shade has dried, use a lighter sandy color like Ushabti Bone to reapply highlights on the raised areas of the armor. Focus on edges and surfaces that catch the light. This layering technique will make the sandy armor appear more three-dimensional and textured.
- Step 4: Painting the Clothing in Green
For the cloth elements on the Deathwing Knights Squad, paint them in green using a color like Caliban Green or another shade of your choice. Be precise and neat with your brushwork to make the green clothing stand out against the sandy armor.
- Step 5: Shading the Clothing
To add depth to the green clothing, apply a shade like Biel-Tan Green. Use a fine detail brush to apply the shade in the recessed areas of the clothing. This will create shadows and make the green clothing look more realistic.
- Step 6: Layering the Clothing
After the shade has dried, use a lighter green color like Warpstone Glow to reapply highlights on the raised areas of the clothing. Focus on edges and folds to create a more vibrant and dynamic look to the green clothing.
- Step 7: Metallic Red and Gold Details
Using a metallic red paint like Runefang Steel, carefully add the red details on the model. This could be the chapter symbols, emblems, or other decorative elements that you want to highlight in red.
Next, using a gold paint like Retributor Armor, add the gold details on the model. This could be any decorative trim, chapter symbols, or other embellishments.
- Step 8: Varnish (Optional)
For protection and a finished look, consider applying a layer of varnish. You can use Ardcoat here. This varnish will provide a glossy finish, enhancing the colors and details on the model while also providing protection.
