How to paint the Neurothrope set

  1. Step 1: Basecoat the Chitin Armor
    Begin by basecoating the chitin armor of the Neurothrope with a solid black color, like Abaddon Black, using a fine detail brush for precise application.
  2. Step 2: Shading
    Apply a wash, such as Nuln Oil or Agrax Earthshade, to the chitin armor to add depth and enhance the shadows. Use a medium-sized brush to carefully apply the wash, ensuring it settles into the recesses of the armor.
  3. Step 3: Highlight the Chitin Armor
    Once the wash has dried, highlight the raised areas of the chitin armor with a lighter shade of black, such as Eshin Grey. Use a fine detail brush to carefully pick out the edges and contours, creating a subtle gradient effect.
  4. Step 4: Paint the Skin
    For the skin, choose a vibrant red color like Mephiston Red and apply it evenly to the exposed areas. Use thin layers and multiple coats if necessary to achieve smooth coverage.
  5. Step 5: Apply Red Shading Wash
    To add depth to the red skin, apply a shading wash specifically designed for red tones, such as Carroburg Crimson. Apply the wash selectively to the recesses and crevices of the skin, allowing it to flow naturally and create shadows.
  6. Step 6: Highlight the Skin
    Once the wash has dried, highlight the raised areas of the skin with a lighter red color, such as Evil Sunz Scarlet. Use a fine detail brush to carefully pick out the prominent features, such as the muscle definition and facial details, adding subtle highlights.
  7. Step 7: Details
    Add additional colors or details to other elements of the Neurothrope, such as the eyes, talons, or accessories, using appropriate colors to enhance the overall appearance.
  8. Step 8: Varnish
    Apply a matte varnish to the entire model to protect the paintwork and provide a uniform finish.
