How to paint the Militarum Tempestus Scions Command Squad set
- Step 1: Basecoat the Models
Start by applying a basecoat to all the models using a suitable primer. This will provide a smooth surface for the paint to adhere to. For the armor, you can use Chaos Black spray primer.
- Step 2: Paint the Armor
Using a medium-sized brush, apply the base color to the armor. For a red armor, you can use Mephiston Red. Apply thin, even coats, allowing each layer to dry before applying the next. This will ensure smooth and even coverage.
- Step 3: Highlight the Armor
To add depth and dimension to the armor, apply a lighter color to the raised areas. For example, you can use Evil Sunz Scarlet to highlight the edges and prominent details. Use a smaller brush for more precision.
- Step 4: Paint the Fatigues
Using a small brush, paint the fatigues of the Scions. You can use Abaddon Black for the clothing. Apply multiple thin coats for a solid, opaque finish.
- Step 5: Add Details and Accessories
Paint the various details and accessories on the models. Use Leadbelcher for metallic areas such as weapons and buckles. Balthasar Gold can be used for any ornamental pieces. Use Rakarth Flesh for skin tones.
- Step 6: Paint the Weapons
Choose suitable colors for the weapons based on your preferred style. For example, Retributor Armor can be used for a gold trim on the weapons, while Averland Sunset can be used for a yellow glow effect on plasma weapons.
- Step 7: Apply Washes
Apply washes to the models to bring out the details and add depth. Agrax Earthshade is a versatile wash that can be applied to the armor, clothing, and weapons. Use a small brush to carefully apply the wash to recessed areas.
- Step 8: Highlight and Final Touches
Highlight the raised areas of the models using lighter shades of the base colors. For example, Fire Dragon Bright can be used to highlight the red armor, while Ushabti Bone can be used for highlighting the fatigues. Additionally, you can add final touches such as painting the eyes, adding squad markings, or weathering effects using Nuln Oil.
