How to paint the Harlequin Troupe set
- Step 1: Basecoat the Troupe
Start by basecoating the Harlequin Troupe with a dark color like Abaddon Black or Chaos Black. Apply thin layers of paint to maintain the details.
- Step 2: Add the Base Colors
Paint the distinct areas of the models with bright colors. For example, use Mephiston Red for the masks, Yriel Yellow for the diamond patterns, and Caliban Green for the cloaks. Be patient and apply multiple thin coats for smooth coverage.
- Step 3: Highlight the Colors
Add highlights to the base colors to make them pop. Use a lighter shade of the same color or a contrasting color to create depth. For instance, highlight the red masks with Evil Sunz Scarlet.
- Step 4: Paint the Details
Focus on the intricate details like the patterns on the cloaks and the designs on the masks. Use a fine detail brush and steady hands to bring out these features. For the diamond patterns, use a light color like White Scar to paint small lines and dots.
- Step 5: Emphasize the Masks
The masks are a key element of the Harlequin’s look. Use contrasting colors to emphasize the facial features. For example, paint the eyes and mouth with bright colors like Averland Sunset or Wild Rider Red.
- Step 6: Fine Lines and Edges
Add fine lines and edges to the models to enhance their appearance. Use a dark color like Abaddon Black or Mechanicus Standard Grey to define the borders between different areas.
- Step 7: Add Metallics
Paint any metallic areas on the models, such as weapons or accessories, with metallic paints like Leadbelcher or Iron Warriors. Add highlights to make them shine.
- Step 8: Base the Models
Base the Harlequin Troupe models to complete the look. Use texture paint, sand, or other scenic elements to create a suitable base for the performers. Paint the base rims with a color that complements the overall scheme.
- Step 9: Varnish for Protection
Finally, apply a matte or gloss varnish to protect the paintwork and give the models a finished look. Matte varnish is typically preferred, but gloss varnish can be used for certain effects.
