How to paint the Maulerfiend set
- Step 1: Basecoat
Begin by applying a basecoat of black paint to the entire model, ensuring complete coverage. For example, you can use Abaddon Black or any other black paint of your choice.
- Step 2: Metallic Parts
Use a metallic silver paint to carefully paint the mechanical and metallic components of the Maulerfiend, such as vents, wires, pistons, and segmented plates. This will bring out the intricate details. For instance, Runelord Brass is a suitable choice for metallic parts.
- Step 3: Contrast Colors
Apply a contrast paint to the black areas of the model to create shading and depth. Consider using a dark brown or dark red contrast paint to add visual interest and enhance the details. Fyreslayer Flesh and Flesh Tearers Red are two good options for this.
- Step 4: Claw and Jaws
Paint the mechanical talons and crushing jaws of the Maulerfiend with a dark metallic paint, such as Leadbelcher or Administratum Grey. Ensure neat and even coverage to highlight these menacing features.
- Step 5: Details and Highlights
Using a lighter silver paint, highlight the edges and prominent areas of the metallic components to add depth and a metallic sheen. For example, Ironbreaker can be used for this purpose.
- Step 6: Accent Colors
Add accent colors to the model to make it stand out. Consider using colors like Mephiston Red for small details or Evil Sunz Scarlet for fiery accents.
- Step 7: Optional Weathering
For added realism, you can apply weathering techniques to the model, such as dry brushing with a lighter metallic paint to create scratches and worn textures. You can also add Typhus Corrosion to pretty much seal the deal with this step.
- Step 8: Varnish
To protect your paint job, apply a layer of varnish over the model using a matte or gloss varnish, depending on your preference. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for drying times and application methods.
