How to paint the Screamer-Killer Brood set
- Step 1: Basecoat the Chitin Armor
Start by applying a basecoat of Xereus Purple to the chitin armor of the Carnifexes using a medium-sized brush. Ensure even coverage, allowing the paint to dry before moving on to the next step.
- Step 2: Shade the Chitin Armor
Apply a shade like Druchii Violet to the purple chitin armor to create depth and shadows. Use a fine detail brush to carefully apply the shade into the recesses of the armor.
- Step 3: Highlight the Chitin Armor
Once the shade has dried, highlight the raised areas of the chitin armor with a lighter purple shade, such as Genestealer Purple. Use a fine detail brush to pick out the edges and contours, creating a subtle gradient effect.
- Step 4: Basecoat the Skin
For the skin, choose a pale white color, like Pallid Wych Flesh, and apply it evenly to the exposed areas of the Carnifexes. Use thin layers and multiple coats if needed for smooth coverage.
- Step 5: Shade the Skin
To add depth to the white skin, apply a shade specifically designed for pale colors, such as Reikland Fleshshade. Apply the shade selectively to the recesses and crevices of the skin, allowing it to flow naturally and create shadows.
- Step 6: Highlight the Skin
Once the shade has dried, highlight the raised areas of the skin with a lighter white color, such as White Scar. Use a fine detail brush to carefully pick out the prominent features, adding subtle highlights to enhance the skin’s texture.
- Step 7: Additional Details
Consider adding further details to the Screamer-Killer Brood, such as painting their eyes with a bright color like Mephiston Red or their claws with Leadbelcher to create a striking contrast.
- Step 8: Varnish
Finish the painting process by applying a layer of matte varnish to protect the paintwork and provide a uniform finish to your Carnifex models. Congratulations on your beautifully painted Screamer-Killer Brood, ready to dominate the battlefield with their menacing presence!
