How to paint the Hellions set
- Step 1: Apply Base Coat
Start by applying a base coat of Abaddon Black paint to the entire Hellion model, ensuring smooth and even coverage.
- Step 2: Paint Armor and Clothing
Use a fine brush to paint the armor and clothing in Khorne Red for the armor and Dryad Bark for the clothing.
- Step 3: Highlight Exposed Skin
Paint the exposed skin areas with Kislev Flesh or Pallid Wych Flesh to add contrast to the model.
- Step 4: Shade with Darker Tone
Use a darker shade like Agrax Earthshade to create shadows and depth on the armor and clothing. Apply it carefully to the recessed areas, such as the crevices and folds.
- Step 5: Add Highlights
Add highlights to the raised areas of the model using a lighter shade like Evil Sunz Scarlet for the armor and Karak Stone for the clothing. This will make the details pop and add dimension to the model.
- Step 6: Paint Weaponry
Paint the weaponry, such as the hellglaives, with Brass Scorpion or Runelord Brass. Apply a wash of Nuln Oil to add depth and definition to the metallic areas.
- Step 7: Detail Additional Elements
Paint any additional details, such as straps, pouches, or symbols, using complementary colors. For example, you can use Screamer Pink for small details or accents.
- Step 8: Apply Overall Wash
Apply a wash, such as Nuln Oil or Agrax Earthshade, to the entire model to enhance the shadows and bring out the details. Remove any excess wash to maintain clarity.
- Step 9: Add Weathering Effects
Consider adding weathering effects, such as drybrushing with Karak Stone or Ryza Rust, to give the model a worn and battle-hardened look.
- Step 10: Apply Protective Varnish
Finish by applying a protective varnish to seal and protect your paintwork. Choose a matte, satin, or glossy varnish according to your preference, keeping in mind the desired finish for your model.
