How to paint the Kill Team: Hierotek Circle set
- Step 1: Prime Your Models
Before diving into painting, make sure your models are clean and dry. A grey or white primer is your best starting point. Hold the can about 6-8 inches away from your models and spray in short, even bursts. This primes the surface for better paint adhesion and helps to bring out the true colors of your paints.
- Step 2: Base Coat the Necron Armor with Abaddon Black
For the main body of your Necron models, including their limbs and torso, apply a base coat of Abaddon Black. Dilute the paint slightly with water for a smoother application. Start with a thin layer, allowing the primer to show through in some areas. This technique builds depth and prevents the paint from appearing too thick.
- Step 3: Paint the Necron Heads with White Scar
Concentrate on the Necron heads now. Use White Scar for a clean, bright finish. Apply this paint evenly to achieve a solid white look. Remember, patience is key when working with white.
- Step 4: Illuminate with Tesseract Glow
Brighten the energy sources, eyes, blades, and cables with Tesseract Glow. This paint provides a vivid, otherworldly glow. Apply it carefully to make these areas stand out and create a striking contrast against the dark armor.
- Step 5: Detail Weapons and Accessories
Give attention to the weapons and accessories. For metallic components, like guns, use Leadbelcher. Then, add tiny details with Mephiston Red or any other accent color of your choice.
- Step 6: Enhance with Shades
To bring out the details, especially on the shoulder pads, apply Coelia Greenshade. Focus on the areas where shadows naturally occur, and apply Nuln Oil there to settle in the recesses, adding depth and definition.
- Step 7: Highlight Brass Details
Elevate the brass details by starting with a base coat of Retributor Armour. After it dries, apply Auric Armour Gold to create a lustrous, captivating look that sets these elements apart.
- Step 8: Basing and Finishing Touches
Complete your models by painting their bases to match your desired theme. Stirland Mud is great for creating textured ground. Add grass, rocks, or other elements for extra flair.
- Step 9: Protect with Munitorum Varnish
To preserve your hard work and add a satin-matte finish, apply Munitorum Varnish. This varnish not only protects your models but also gives them a professional look. It reduces glare and enhances the overall appearance, making your Necron Kill Team truly stand out.
