How to paint the Storm Speeder Thunderstrike Set

  1. Step 1: Prime the miniature
    Prime the Storm Speeder Thunderstrike with a black or gray primer to create a base for the paint.
  2. Step 2: Basecoat the main colors
    Use Kantor Blue for the main hull, Warplock Bronze for the metallic areas, and Mephiston Red for any additional details like weapon casings or markings.
  3. Step 3: Apply washes
    Apply Nuln Oil wash over the entire miniature to add depth and shading. Use Agrax Earthshade on the metallic areas to enhance the weathered effect.
  4. Step 4: Highlight the colors
    Using Fenrisian Grey, carefully highlight the edges of the hull and other raised areas to create a subtle contrast and add dimension to the model. Use Runelord Brass to highlight the metallic parts.
  5. Step 5: Paint the details
    Use Retributor Armor for any gold details, such as the trim or insignias. Use Abaddon Black for any small details like the cockpit windows or gun barrels.
  6. Step 6: Weathering and effects
    Add weathering effects with stippling or dry brushing techniques using Mechanicus Standard Grey or Dawnstone to create a worn and battle-damaged appearance.
  7. Step 7: Finishing touches
    Paint the base in a suitable color, such as Armageddon Dust, and add texture with static grass or small rocks for added realism. Finally, apply a protective coat of varnish to seal the paint and protect the miniature.
