How to paint the Skarbrand set
- Step 1: Prime your miniature
Applying a primer is essential to ensure the paint adheres properly to the model. Use a black or gray primer spray, such as Chaos Black or White Scar, to cover the entire model. Make sure to do this in a well-ventilated area.
- Step 2: Basecoat the skin
Skarbrand’s skin is a prominent feature. Begin by applying a basecoat of Mephiston Red or Khorne Red to the skin areas, such as the torso, arms, and legs. Thin the paint slightly with water or a medium to achieve smooth and even coverage. Apply multiple thin layers if necessary, allowing each layer to dry before adding the next.
- Step 3: Highlight the skin
To bring out the details and add depth to the skin, we’ll highlight it. Mix a little Wild Rider Red with Mephiston Red to create a brighter tone. Apply this mixture to the raised areas of the muscles, such as the chest, biceps, and thighs. Use a small brush and focus on creating thin, controlled lines.
- Step 4: Shade the skin
Shading helps create contrast and gives the skin a more realistic appearance. Mix Carroburg Crimson shade with a little Lahmian Medium to dilute it. Apply this shade selectively to the recesses and deeper areas of the skin, such as the muscle crevices and under the arms. Be careful not to overdo it, as we want a subtle effect.
- Step 5: Basecoat the armor
Moving on to the armor, start by applying a basecoat of Abaddon Black or Leadbelcher, depending on the desired color scheme. Cover all the armor panels, including the helmet, chest plate, and leg guards. Use thin layers for better control and smooth coverage.
- Step 6: Highlight the armor
Highlighting the armor will make it stand out. For a black armor scheme, mix a small amount of Thunderhawk Blue or Fenrisian Grey with your black base color. Apply this mixture to the edges and raised areas of the armor panels. Aim for thin, precise lines to create a crisp and defined look.
- Step 7: Shade the armor
To add depth and shadow to the armor, apply a shade like Nuln Oil or Agrax Earthshade. Brush this shade onto the recesses and joints of the armor, allowing it to settle naturally. Use a smaller brush for more controlled application. Remember to avoid pooling the shade and let it dry completely.
- Step 8: Paint the details
Skarbrand has various intricate details that can be painted to enhance the overall look. Use appropriate colors for the different elements, such as Retributor Armor for the golden trims, Abaddon Black for the weapon handles, and Warpstone Glow for the eyes. Take your time and use a small brush for precision.
- Step 9: Base and basing
Finish off the miniature by painting the base. You can use a mix of textures and colors to represent different terrain elements, such as Stirland Mud for earth and Astrogranite Debris for rubble. Experiment with dry brushing techniques to add highlights and make the base visually appealing.
