How to paint the Forgefiend set
- Step 1: Basecoat
Begin by applying a basecoat of black paint to the entire model, ensuring complete coverage. For example, you can use a black paint like Abaddon Black or any other black paint of your choice.
- Step 2: Metallic Parts
Use a metallic silver paint to carefully paint the mechanical and metallic components of the Forgefiend, such as vents, wires, pistons, and segmented plates. This will bring out the intricate details. For instance, Leadbelcher is a suitable choice for metallic parts.
- Step 3: Contrast Colors
Apply a contrast paint to the black areas of the model to create shading and depth. Consider using a dark brown or dark red contrast paint to add visual interest and enhance the details. Fyreslayer Flesh and Flesh Tearers Red are two good options for this.
- Step 4: Weaponry
Paint the weaponry of the Forgefiend using metallic or energy colors. For example, you can use a metallic silver paint for autocannons or a vibrant color like Moot Green or Talassar Blue for ectoplasma cannons.
- Step 5: Flesh and Organic Parts
For the twisted flesh and organic parts of the Forgefiend you can use a flesh-toned paint such as Rakarth Flesh or Cadian Fleshtone. Apply the paint carefully to capture the grotesque appearance of the daemon engine’s organic components.
- Step 6: Details and Highlights
Using a lighter silver paint, highlight the edges and prominent areas of the metallic components to add depth and a metallic sheen. For example, Ironbreaker can be used for this purpose.
- Step 7: Optional Weathering
For added realism and battle-worn effects, you can apply weathering techniques to the model. Dry brushing with a lighter metallic paint can create scratches and worn textures, while using a brown or black wash can add depth to recessed areas.
- Step 8: Varnish
To protect your paint job and give it a finished look, apply a layer of varnish over the model using a matte or gloss varnish, depending on your preference. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for drying times and application methods.
