How to paint the The Visarch set
- Step 1: Prime Your Model
Apply a thin, even coat of Chaos Black Primer to the model. This will create a smooth surface for painting and help the paint adhere better. Let the primer dry completely before moving on.
- Step 2: Basecoat the Armor
Use a brush to apply a basecoat of Mephiston Red to the armor plates of The Visarch. Ensure even coverage and apply additional coats if necessary. Let the paint dry before moving to the next step.
- Step 3: Basecoat the Cape
Next, use a brush to apply a basecoat of Macragge Blue to the cape of The Visarch. Apply the paint evenly, covering the entire surface. Allow the paint to dry completely.
- Step 4: Highlight the Armor
Using Evil Sunz Scarlet, apply highlights to the raised areas of the armor plates. This will add depth and dimension to the model. Use a smaller brush for more precision. Apply the highlight paint sparingly to create a subtle effect.
- Step 5: Highlight the Cape
Similarly, use Calgar Blue to highlight the raised areas of the cape. Apply the highlight paint carefully to enhance the details and create depth.
- Step 6: Wash the Model
Apply a thin wash of Nuln Oil to the entire model. This will settle into the recesses and crevices, adding shading and depth. Use a small brush to carefully apply the wash, ensuring it doesn’t pool in unwanted areas.
- Step 7: Detailing
Use a fine-tipped brush to add small details to the model. This can include painting the eyes with Yriel Yellow, adding highlights with White Scar, or painting any additional features, like the robes or gemstones. Take your time and use a steady hand for precise detailing.
- Step 8: Base the Model
Consider adding texture to the base of the model to enhance its appearance. You can use Armageddon Dust, Astrogranite Debris, or other basing materials to create a realistic base. Get creative and choose elements that complement the overall theme and look of The Visarch.
- Step 9: Varnish the Model
To protect your paintwork, apply a layer of Munitorum Varnish to the model. Varnish comes in different finishes, such as matte or gloss. Choose the finish you prefer and follow the instructions on the varnish can for proper application.
