How to paint the Venerable Land Raider Set
- Step 1: Priming
To begin your painting journey with the Venerable Land Raider, apply a coat of Retributor Armor spray primer. This initial step is essential as it provides a golden foundation for the subsequent layers of paint. Ensure that the model is evenly coated with the primer, allowing for a smooth and consistent surface for your paint to adhere to.
- Step 2: Armor
Now, let’s focus on the Land Raider’s impressive armor. Since we primed the model with Retributor Armour, we don’t need to apply a basecoat. Use Auric Armour Gold now to layer the body of your tank, focusing on raised surfaces.
Apply a shade of Seraphim Sepia over the gold areas. This shade will settle into the recesses, emphasizing the tank’s contours and giving it a weathered, battle-worn appearance.
- Step 3: Tracks, Weapons, and Metallic Details
Turn your attention to the tracks, weapons, and other metallic elements of the Venerable Land Raider. Begin by painting these parts with Leadbelcher, ensuring you cover them thoroughly. This paint provides a solid base for the metallic details and adds a hint of industrial ruggedness to the model.
Next, apply a layer of Stormhost Silver to the same areas. This step adds a brilliant metallic sheen, making the Land Raider’s weaponry and tracks appear polished and ready for battle. To give these metallic areas depth and realism, apply Agrax Earthshade as a shade. This will create shadows and crevices, enhancing the overall appearance of your model.
- Step 4: Red Details
Now, let’s add some striking accents to the Venerable Land Raider with Mephiston Red. Carefully paint the various red details on the tank, such as insignia, decorative elements, and any other red accents you want to highlight. This bold color contrast against the golden armor adds character and makes these details stand out prominently.
- Step 5: Varnishing
To protect your meticulously painted Venerable Land Raider and give it a finished, polished appearance, it’s time to apply a layer of Munitorum Varnish Spray. This varnish not only safeguards your paintwork but also provides a consistent matte finish across the entire model. Be sure to allow the model to dry completely before moving it or adding it to your collection.
