How to paint the Lychguard set

  1. Step 1: Apply the Base Coat to Armor
    Using Leadbelcher, paint the armor plates of your Lychguard. Ensure thorough coverage, as this forms the base color for your metallic armor.
  2. Step 2: Add Depth with Shading
    Employ Agrax Earthshade to shade the armor sections. Focus on the recessed areas and corners to create a sense of depth and realism.
  3. Step 3: Enhance the Metallic Shine
    With Stormhost Silver, layer the armor surfaces. Concentrate on the raised parts of the armor to achieve a polished metallic sheen.
  4. Step 4: Detail Work
    Utilize Abaddon Black to paint the handles of weapons and intricate armor details. This step adds definition and contrast to your model.
  5. Step 5: Basecoat for Blades
    For the weapon blades, apply a basecoat of Waaagh! Flesh. This sets the stage for the vibrant glowing effect you’ll achieve later.
  6. Step 6: Build Layers on Blades
    Layer on Warpstone Glow, focusing on the center of the blades. This creates a gradient effect, transitioning from the basecoat to the brighter center.
  7. Step 7: Intensify the Glow
    Further enhance the glowing effect by layering Moot Green over the Warpstone Glow. Gradually build up the intensity toward the center.
  8. Step 8: Inspect and Finalize
    Take a moment to review your work. Touch up any missed details or imperfections to ensure a polished and professional appearance.
  9. Step 9: Seal with Varnish
    To protect your masterpiece, apply a varnish. Choosing Ardcoat will not only safeguard your paintwork but also accentuate the metallic finish.
