How to paint the Fire Prism set
- Step 1: Basecoat the Hull Red
Start by applying a basecoat of red paint to the Fire Prism’s hull. Choose a vibrant red color like Mephiston Red or Evil Sunz Scarlet to cover the entire hull. Ensure you paint all the surfaces evenly for a smooth and consistent look.
- Step 2: Paint the Weapons Black
Next, focus on the prism cannon and other weapons. Use a black paint like Abaddon Black to cover these parts, creating a dark and striking contrast to the red hull.
- Step 3: Add Metallic Details
For metallic details such as the engine parts and other accents, use a metallic color like Leadbelcher or Runefang Steel. These shades will add a touch of realism and sophistication to the model.
- Step 4: Highlight the Hull
After the basecoat has dried, apply a lighter red color like Wild Rider Red to highlight the raised areas of the hull. This will add depth and visual interest to the model.
- Step 5: Highlight the Weapons
Using a lighter shade of black like Eshin Grey or Mechanicus Standard Grey, highlight the edges of the weapons. This will make them stand out and appear more defined.
- Step 6: Paint Gemstones and Iconography White
For gemstones and other intricate details, use a white paint like White Scar or Corax White. This will create a striking contrast against the red hull and add an element of elegance to the model.
- Step 7: Detail the Prism Cannon
The prism cannon’s pentagonal frames can be painted with opaque colors like Caledor Sky or Altdorf Guard Blue. This will give them a mysterious and captivating appearance.
- Step 8: Add Final Details
Focus on any remaining details, such as additional iconography, gem highlights, or other decorations. Use appropriate colors to complement the overall appearance.
- Step 9: Varnish (Optional)
For added protection and to maintain the model’s appearance, consider applying a layer of varnish. A matte varnish will provide a non-shiny finish, while a gloss varnish will enhance the model’s vibrancy.
