How to paint the Imotekh the Stormlord set
- Step 1: Base Coat – Metallic Body
Start by applying a layer of Leadbelcher to Imotekh’s body. This initial coat will lay the groundwork for the metallic finish that characterizes his form. Make sure to cover all surfaces evenly to create a solid base.
- Step 2: Shading – Enhancing Depth
Use Nuln Oil to shade the entire metallic body. Focus on recesses and areas where shadows naturally fall. This shading technique will enhance the depth of the model, giving it a more realistic and three-dimensional look.
- Step 3: Layering – Metallic Highlights
Build upon the base coat by layering Ironbreaker onto the body. Concentrate on the edges and raised sections to simulate the way light would interact with the surface. This layering adds visual interest and further defines the metallic texture.
- Step 4: Chest and Cape – Dark Contrast
Paint Imotekh’s chest and cape with Abaddon Black. This dark color serves as a strong contrast to the metallic tones, creating a striking visual effect. Apply the paint carefully, ensuring even coverage and sharp edges.
- Step 5: Inner Cape Details – Subtle Intricacy
Add Moot Green to the inner parts of the cape. This subtle touch of color provides a glimpse of vibrancy within the darkness. Take your time to neatly paint these details, enhancing the model’s overall complexity.
- Step 6: Shoulder Pads and Crown – Regal Accents
Use Screaming Bell to color the shoulder pads and crown. This rich hue adds a touch of regal elegance to Imotekh’s appearance, emphasizing his leadership role. Apply the paint precisely to highlight these important elements.
- Step 7: Scythe, Eyes, and Cape Details – Focal Points
Apply Moot Green to the blade of his scythe, his eyes, and other intricate cape details. These elements serve as focal points, drawing attention to specific areas of the model. Use a steady hand to achieve crisp lines and vibrant accents.
- Step 8: Final Touches – Review and Refine
Take a moment to review your work as a whole. Check for consistency in color application, highlighting, and shading. Make any necessary refinements or touch-ups to ensure a polished and visually appealing result.
- Step 9: Protecting Your Work – Varnish
Preserve the beauty of your painted model by applying a protective varnish. Use Munitorum Varnish Spray for a satin-matte finish that shields your hard work from wear and tear. Hold the can at a distance and apply an even coat over the entire model, allowing it to dry completely before handling or displaying your masterpiece. This step ensures that your Imotekh the Stormlord will retain its stunning appearance for battles and showcases to come.
