How to paint the Skorpius Dunerider Set
- Step 1: Priming
Begin by priming your Skorpius Dunerider with Mephiston Red spray. This provides a strong base for the subsequent layers of paint and ensures a consistent finish.
- Step 2: Main Body
Layer the main body of the Skorpius Dunerider with Wild Rider Red. Ensure an even application of paint to achieve a vibrant red color that covers the entire surface.
- Step 3: Cargo Hold
Paint the inside of the cargo hold with Zandri Dust. Once dry, layer it with Karak Stone to create a warm, desert-like interior. This color scheme complements the vehicle’s purpose as a transport in arid environments.
- Step 4: Details
The metallic details, such as antennas or weapons, should be painted with Leadbelcher. Afterward, add depth and shine by layering these details with Stormhost Silver to make them stand out.
For the black details, like ammo magazines or emblems, use Abaddon Black.
- Step 5: Varnishing
To protect your beautifully painted Skorpius Dunerider and give it a finished look, apply a varnish. Munitorum Varnish Spray is suitable for this purpose. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully when using the varnish spray.
