How to paint the Painboss set
- Step 1: Prime Your Miniature
Begin by priming your Painboss model with Chaos Black or any other primer of your choice. This ensures a smooth surface for the paint to adhere to.
- Step 2: Basecoat the Model
Apply a basecoat of paint to the Painboss’s skin and armor. For the skin, use a green color like Warboss Green, and for the armor, you can use a metallic silver color like Leadbelcher.
- Step 3: Paint the Cybernetics
Next, paint the cybernetics on the Painboss with a bright metallic color like Retributor Armour. This will make the cybernetic enhancements stand out.
- Step 4: Add Details
Using a fine brush, add any additional details to the model, such as the surgical tools and squig-based remedies. Use contrasting colors like Rhinox Hide or Ushabti Bone to make these details pop.
- Step 5: Highlight the Skin and Armor
With a lighter green color like Skarsnik Green, carefully apply highlights to the Painboss’s skin, focusing on the knuckles, nose, and cheekbones. For the armor, use a brighter metallic color like Runefang Steel to add highlights to the edges and raised areas.
- Step 6: Paint the Clothing
Now, paint any clothing or accessories on the Painboss with colors that complement the overall scheme. For example, you can use a brown color like Mournfang Brown for a leather belt or pouch.
- Step 7: Paint the Grot Orderlies
If your Painboss comes with grot orderlies, paint them separately using colors like Skavenblight Dinge for their skin and Abaddon Black / White Scar for their clothing.
- Step 8: Add Final Touches
With a fine brush, add any final touches to the model, such as the eyes or tattoos. Use contrasting colors to make these details stand out.
- Step 9: Varnish and Protect
To preserve your masterpiece, apply a protective layer of varnish over the entire model. This will safeguard the paint job and prevent any damage over time.
