How to paint the Morkanaut set
- Step 1: Prime Your Morkanaut
Begin by priming your Morkanaut model with a white primer. This will create a strong base for the red color scheme and help the subsequent layers of paint adhere better. Ensure you cover the entire model evenly to avoid any bare spots.
- Step 2: Basecoat the Red
Using a large brush, apply a base coat of red paint, such as Mephiston Red, to the entire model. This will serve as the primary color for your Morkanaut. Apply the paint evenly, covering all areas thoroughly.
- Step 3: Highlight with Brighter Reds
Switch to a smaller brush and add highlights to the model using a brighter red shade like Evil Sunz Scarlet. Concentrate on raised surfaces and edges to create depth and bring out details. Be precise with your brush strokes for a clean and polished appearance.
- Step 4: Add Yellow Details
For the yellow details, start by applying a base coat of Averland Sunset to the designated areas. Use multiple thin coats to achieve a smooth and solid coverage. This color will complement the red and add eye-catching details to your model.
- Step 5: Create Depth with Shades
Enhance the yellow details and create depth by applying a wash of Agrax Earthshade. This will add shadows and definition, making the details pop and giving your Morkanaut a more realistic and captivating appearance.
- Step 6: Metallic Accents
Base coat the metallic parts of your Morkanaut, such as weapons and machinery, with Leadbelcher. This will be the foundation for achieving a metallic appearance. Ensure even coverage to create a consistent and striking effect.
- Step 7: Shine with Silver
Highlight the metallic areas using a silver shade like Runefang Steel. This step will give the metallic parts a polished and shiny finish, adding extra visual interest to your model.
- Step 8: Weathering Effects (Optional)
For an extra touch of realism and battle-worn appearance, you can add weathering effects. Use Typhus Corrosion to create rusted areas and Ryza Rust for a textured rust effect. Apply these sparingly and strategically for a convincing weathered look.
- Step 9: Final Touches
Take a moment to inspect your Morkanaut model. Make any necessary touch-ups to ensure a clean and professional finish. Pay attention to details and correct any smudges or imperfections to achieve a high-quality result.
- Step 10: Protect with Varnish
To preserve your hard work and ensure your Morkanaut looks stunning for battles to come, apply a layer of varnish over the entire model. Choose between matte or gloss varnish, depending on your preference, to protect the paint job and give your model a finished look.
