How to paint the Exalted Flamer of Tzeentch set
- Step 1: Prime the Miniature
Apply a thin and even coat of primer to the Exalted Flamer, using a suitable color like grey or white. This provides a smooth surface for the paint to adhere to.
- Step 2: Basecoat the Model
Begin by basecoating the entire model with a vibrant blue color of your choice, such as Caledor Sky or Altdorf Guard Blue. Apply multiple thin coats for solid coverage, allowing each coat to dry before applying the next.
- Step 3: Highlight the Model
Using a lighter shade of blue, like Teclis Blue or Lothern Blue, carefully apply highlights to the raised areas of the model. Focus on areas such as the face, limbs, and any prominent details to add depth and dimension.
- Step 4: Shade the Model
Create shadows and depth by applying a darker blue color, such as Drakenhof Nightshade or Nuln Oil, selectively to the recesses and areas where shadows would naturally occur. This helps enhance the definition and adds a sense of realism.
- Step 5: Paint the Flames
Using colors like Wild Rider Red or Evil Sunz Scarlet, paint the flames spewing from the Exalted Flamer’s mouths. Start with a darker shade at the base of the flames and gradually transition to a lighter shade towards the tips. You can add touches of yellow or white for additional intensity.
- Step 6: Detail the Model
Using a fine brush, paint any smaller details on the model, such as the eyes or mouth, using contrasting colors like bright yellow or fiery orange. Add small dots or lines to make them stand out.
- Step 7: Final Touches and Cleanup
Inspect the model for any missed areas or mistakes. Touch up any areas that need additional paint or highlighting. Use a fine brush and water to clean up any excess paint or mistakes.
- Step 8: Varnish for Protection (optional)
To protect your painted model, apply a layer of varnish. Choose a suitable varnish like matt or gloss, following the manufacturer’s instructions. This helps prevent chipping or damage to your paintwork.
