How to paint the Gorkanaut

  1. Step 1: Prime the Miniature
    Apply a thin, even layer of primer to the assembled Gorkanaut miniature. Choose a black primer for a darker color scheme or a white primer for a brighter appearance. Priming ensures better paint adhesion and provides a smooth base for your colors.
  2. Step 2: Base Color
    Using Yriel Yellow, paint the entire Gorkanaut in a consistent layer of yellow. Apply multiple thin coats to achieve a smooth and vibrant finish. Let each coat dry before applying the next one.
  3. Step 3: Define Details
    With a smaller brush, pick out the details of the miniature, such as the Ork’s teeth, glyphs, and any other accents, using appropriate colors like Abaddon Black or Ushabti Bone.
  4. Step 4: Apply Shading
    To create depth and shadows, apply a shade like Agrax Earthshade to the recessed areas of the Gorkanaut. This will enhance the details and add realism to the miniature.
  5. Step 5: Add Highlights
    Using a lighter yellow or white (e.g., Flash Gitz Yellow or White Scar), add highlights to the raised areas of the Gorkanaut. This will give the miniature a more dynamic and eye-catching appearance.
  6. Step 6: Weathering (Optional)
    If you desire a battle-worn look, consider adding weathering effects. Use a sponge or dry brush with colors like Skrag Brown or Ryza Rust to simulate rust and chipping on the Gorkanaut’s armor.
  7. Step 7: Varnish and Display
    Once you are satisfied with the paint job, allow the miniature to dry completely. Then, protect your work by applying a coat of varnish. Opt for a matte varnish for a more realistic finish or a gloss varnish for a shiny appearance.
    Your Gorkanaut is now ready to join your gaming table or proudly be displayed in your miniature collection. Have fun and happy painting!
