How to paint the Kelermorph set
- Step 1: Armor in Majestic Blue
Begin by painting the Kelermorph’s armor using the captivating blue shade of Ultramarine Blue. This color not only adds a touch of regality to the model but also serves as a foundation for the rest of the details. Apply the paint with smooth strokes, ensuring even coverage. Allow each coat to dry before proceeding to the next, building a rich and vibrant blue hue.
- Step 2: Cape of Earthy Brown
Shift your focus to the cape, a key feature that adds character to the Kelermorph. Embrace the warm tones of Mournfang Brown as you meticulously paint the cape. The goal is to achieve a natural and textured appearance. Take your time to layer the paint, letting the brown shades evoke a sense of rugged elegance.
- Step 3: Boots in Deep Black
The boots, a symbol of the Kelermorph’s swift and purposeful movement, deserve a deep and intense black. Choose Abaddon Black and paint with precision. Applying a couple of thin layers ensures a solid, jet-black finish that perfectly complements the overall aesthetic.
- Step 4: Metallic Guns for Impact
Now, focus on the centerpiece of the Kelermorph’s prowess – the guns. With the metallic brilliance of Leadbelcher, highlight the intricate details of the weapons. These metallic shades lend a realistic touch to the guns, making them stand out as both deadly and exquisite.
- Step 5: Flesh with a Touch of Purple
Shift your attention to the Kelermorph’s face, revealing the humanity beneath the mask. The flesh tone Kislev Flesh serves as a good base, offering a lifelike canvas. To add depth and character, gently shade the flesh with a diluted Druchii Violet. This subtle purple hue emphasizes facial contours, creating a captivating and three-dimensional effect.
- Step 6: Details Galore
The miniature comes alive through the smaller details. The belt buckle, pouches, and other accessories demand attention. For instance, let the rich hue of Balthasar Gold enhance the belt buckle, and embrace the earthy tones of Rhinox Hide for the pouches. Each detail tells a story, enriching the narrative of the Kelermorph.
- Step 7: Adding a Pop of Color
Now, let’s inject vibrancy into the miniature. Imagine the Kelermorph’s goggles reflecting flashes of danger and determination. Use the eye-catching Yriel Yellow to paint the goggles, a small detail that enhances the overall visual impact.
- Step 8: Caps of Color
Elevate your work further by introducing various colors to specific areas. Consider painting the cap’s trim with the bold and intense red of Mephiston Red. This strategic touch injects dynamism and contrast into the Kelermorph’s ensemble, capturing attention and leaving a lasting impression.
- Step 9: Optional Weathering
For those feeling adventurous, we explore weathering effects. Stirland Mud texture paint, when applied lightly to the boots, simulates a touch of mud or dirt. This optional step adds depth and realism to the miniature, showcasing the Kelermorph’s journey through terrains both treacherous and diverse.
- Step 10: The Finishing Touch
Approaching the final strokes, take a step back and admire your progress. Every detail, every color, tells a part of the Kelermorph’s story. Make any necessary touch-ups, ensuring that your masterpiece embodies the vision you set out to achieve.
