How to paint the Lokhust Destroyer Squadron set
- Step 1: Prime the Miniatures
Start by priming your miniatures. Apply a thin layer of primer to ensure paint adherence and a smooth finish. For this guide, we’ll use Chaos Black primer, which provides a solid base for painting.
- Step 2: Base Coat
Begin painting the miniatures’ bodies with Leadbelcher. Apply this metallic color evenly to create a strong foundation. The metallic base will set the tone for further detailing.
- Step 3: Detail the Guns
Moving on to the guns, apply Tesseract Glow to add a vibrant detail. This luminescent color brings energy to the weaponry. Carefully paint this onto the guns, enhancing their distinct appearance.
- Step 4: Propulsors
For the propulsors, opt for a bold contrast. Paint them with Abaddon Black, allowing them to stand out against the metallic body. This dark hue complements the metallic base and adds visual depth.
- Step 5: Layering
As before, apply thin layers of paint to build up colors smoothly. This preserves details and adds dimension. Highlight raised areas using a lighter shade, such as Ironbreaker, which complements the metallic base.
- Step 6: Contrast Paints
Utilize contrast paints to enhance intricate details. For example, consider applying Blood Angels Red contrast paint on certain elements to create dynamic visual interest.
- Step 7: Shade with Washes
Apply washes to deepen shadows and add depth. Choose Nuln Oil to create realistic contrast between shadows and highlights.
- Step 8: Attend to Bases
Pay attention to the miniature’s bases, reflecting your desired battlefield environment. For a desolate look, consider using Stirland Mud and dry brushing with Ushabti Bone.
- Step 9: Preserve with Varnish
Finally, protect your work by applying a protective varnish. This ensures your miniatures stay vibrant and detailed through gaming sessions and displays.
