How to paint the Tzaangors set
- Step 1: Basecoat
Apply a basecoat of a suitable color, such as a bright blue like Thousand Sons Blue or other vibrant tones, to the Tzaangors flesh areas using a medium-sized brush.
- Step 2: Base Colors
Choose the appropriate colors for different sections of the models. For the feathers, consider using colors like Zandri Dust or other earthy tones, and for the armor and weapons, select colors like Leadbelcher or other metallic shades.
- Step 3: Detailing
Using a smaller brush, add fine details to the models. Paint the eyes with contrasting colors like Mephiston Red or other suitable hues, and apply additional colors to highlight areas such as the beak or claws. For example, you can use colors like Balthasar Gold or other metallic shades for small details like buckles or ornaments.
- Step 4: Washes
Apply washes to the models to enhance depth and create shadows. Use a suitable shade like Nuln Oil or other dark washes for the metallic areas, and consider using Agrax Earthshade or other appropriate washes for the feathers and flesh areas.
- Step 5: Highlights and Drybrushing
Using a lighter shade of the base colors or a mix with white, carefully highlight the edges and raised areas of the models. This step adds dimension and brings out the details. Additionally, use a drybrush technique with a lighter color to lightly dust certain areas, like the feathers or armor, for added texture and a weathered appearance.
- Step 6: Fine Details
Focus on painting smaller details such as the eyes, beak, or symbols. Use contrasting colors to make them stand out, like painting the eyes with a bright color or using a suitable hue for the beak or symbols. Take your time and be patient with these intricate details.
- Step 7: Bases
Paint the bases using colors that match your preferred theme, such as a rocky or mystical terrain. Consider using texture paints, drybrushing, or adding additional details like tufts of grass or small rocks to enhance the overall look.
- Step 8: Varnish (Optional)
To protect your painted models and ensure their longevity, consider applying a varnish spray as a final step. This helps seal the paint, guarding against chipping, and adds a protective layer to the models.
