How to paint the Deathwing Terminator Squad
- Step 1: Base Coat
Step one is to apply the base coat to the Deathwing Terminator Squad’s armor. Paint it in a sandy color like Zandri Dust or another shade that resembles desert sand. Apply thin coats to preserve the model’s details.
- Step 2: Layering the Armor
After the base coat 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 3: Green Details
Paint the green details on the Deathwing Terminator Squad’s armor using a color like Caliban Green or another shade that complements the sandy base color. These green details could be chapter symbols, emblems, or other decorative elements. Be precise with your brushwork to make the green details stand out against the sandy armor.
- Step 4: Gold Details
Using a gold paint like Retributor Armor, carefully add the gold details on the model. This could be any decorative trim, chapter symbols, or other embellishments. Take your time to make the gold details look clean and striking.
- Step 5: Red Details
For red details, use a bright red color like Evil Sunz Scarlet or Mephiston Red. Paint any insignia, markings, or other red elements that you want to add to the model. The red details will provide a striking contrast against the sandy armor.
- Step 6: Metallics for Swords
Paint the swords of the Deathwing Terminator Squad with metallic paints like Leadbelcher or Iron Warriors. This will give the swords a realistic metallic appearance, making them look deadly and powerful.
- Step 7: Shading and Highlighting
To add depth and realism to the model, apply shading to the armor, green, and red areas using shades like Agrax Earthshade or Nuln Oil. For highlighting, use lighter colors like Pallid Wych Flesh for the sandy armor, Moot Green for the green details, and Fire Dragon Bright for the red details. This will enhance the overall look and make the model pop on the tabletop.
- Step 8: Weathering (Optional)
For a weathered look, consider adding weathering effects like chipping, scratches, or dirt using techniques like sponge painting or dry brushing. This will give your Deathwing Terminator Squad a battle-worn and gritty appearance, ready for action in the grim darkness of the future.
- Step 9: Final Touches
Check the model for any areas that might need touch-ups. Ensure that all the colors, shading, and layering are neat and consistent. Add any final details or highlights to make the model look complete.
- Step 10: Varnish (Optional)
For protection and a finished look, consider applying a layer of varnish. You can use Citadel’s Ardcoat Varnish for a glossy finish, enhancing colors and details on the model.
