How to paint the Helbrute set
- Step 1: Basecoat the Helbrute’s armor using a color you like. Mephiston Red, Abaddon Black, Death Guard Green, Thousand Sons Blue are all good options since you can use this miniature in a variety of Chaos Armies.
- Step 2: Apply a layer of Leadbelcher to the metal areas of the model, such as the weapons and mechanical parts, to give them a metallic appearance.
- Step 3: Use a brush to carefully paint the fleshy areas of the Helbrute, like the exposed parts of the pilot, with a suitable flesh tone such as Bugman’s Glow or Ratskin Flesh.
- Step 4: Apply a wash, like Agrax Earthshade or Nuln Oil, over the entire model to add depth and shading to the different areas. This will help bring out the details and create a weathered look.
- Step 5: Highlight the raised edges and prominent details of the model by drybrushing with a lighter color. For example, you can use a lighter silver shade like Stormhost Silver to highlight the metallic areas, and a lighter flesh tone like Cadian Fleshtone to highlight the fleshy parts.
- Step 6: Use various colors to paint the smaller details, such as the eyes, symbols, and wires, using a small brush for precision. For instance, you can use Flesh Tearers Red for the eyes and symbols, and Averland Sunset for the wires.
- Step 7: Apply a suitable wash, like Reikland Fleshshade or Drakenhof Nightshade, to the areas where you’ve painted the smaller details to enhance the definition and add depth.
- Step 8: Finish off the model by basing it. You can use texture paints, such as Astrogranite or Stirland Mud, to create a realistic ground texture. Then, paint the base with suitable colors to match your army’s theme.
