How to paint the Vyper set

  1. Step 1: Prime Your Miniature
    Begin by priming your Vyper model with Chaos Black or any other primer of your choice. This creates a smooth surface for the paint to adhere to.
  2. Step 2: Basecoat the Model
    Start by applying a basecoat of paint to the Vyper’s body. You can use a color like Mephiston Red for a vibrant look or Abaddon Black for a darker appearance. Ensure an even application to cover the entire body.
  3. Step 3: Paint the Cockpit
    With a lighter shade like Evil Sunz Scarlet, paint the Vyper’s cockpit to give it a striking contrast to the body color. This will add depth and visual interest to the model.
  4. Step 4: Highlight the Body
    Using a brighter color like Wild Rider Red, carefully apply highlights to the edges and prominent areas of the Vyper’s body. This step adds dimension and makes the model pop.
  5. Step 5: Paint the Weapons
    Now, move on to the Vyper’s weapons. Use a metallic color like Leadbelcher for a realistic look. Apply the paint to the guns, making them stand out against the body.
  6. Step 6: Add Details
    With a fine brush, add any additional details to the model, such as symbols, runes, or panels. Use a contrasting color like Ushabti Bone or any color that complements the base colors.
  7. Step 7: Highlight the Weapons
    Using a lighter metallic color like Runefang Steel, apply highlights to the edges and raised parts of the weapons. This will give them a shiny and well-maintained appearance.
  8. Step 8: Paint the Canopies
    For the canopies of the Vyper, use a bright color like Baharroth Blue or a similar shade. Apply this paint to the canopies to give them a vibrant and eye-catching look.
  9. Step 9: Add Final Details
    With a fine brush, add any final touches, such as cockpit controls or small designs. You can use contrasting colors to make these details stand out.
  10. Step 10: Varnish and Protect
    To preserve your hard work, apply a protective layer of varnish over the entire model. This will safeguard the paint job and prevent any damage over time.
