How to paint the Warlock Skyrunner set
- Step 1: Prime Your Model
Start by applying a thin, even coat of primer to your Warlock Skyrunner model. This will create a smooth surface for the paint to adhere to.
- Step 2: Basecoat the Robes
Using a brush, apply a base color to the robes of the Warlock Skyrunner. For example, you can use a blue color like Ultramarine Blue or a red color like Mephiston Red. Apply the basecoat evenly, covering all areas of the robes. For the skyrunner he rides, use the same color.
- Step 3: Highlight the Robes
Select a lighter shade of the base color and use a smaller brush to highlight the raised areas of the robes. This will add depth and dimension to the model. For example, if the base color is Ultramarine Blue, you can use a lighter blue shade like Altdorf Guard Blue or a white shade like White Scar for the highlights.
- Step 4: Paint the Details
Use a fine-tipped brush to paint the smaller details of the Warlock Skyrunner, such as the gemstones, runes, and weapon details. Use appropriate colors for each detail. For example, you can use colors like Evil Sunz Scarlet for the gemstones, Runefang Steel for the runes, and Retributor Armor for the weapon details.
- Step 5: Washes for Depth
Apply washes to the model to create shadows and enhance the details. For example, you can use a black wash like Nuln Oil or a brown wash like Agrax Earthshade. Apply the washes to the recessed areas and allow them to flow into the crevices.
- Step 6: Fine-tune the Details
After the washes have dried, use a fine-tipped brush to clean up any areas that may have been smudged or over-painted. This step will help refine the details and make them stand out.
- Step 7: Varnish for Protection
To protect your painted model, apply a layer of varnish. Choose between matte or gloss varnish based on your preference. Follow the instructions on the varnish can for proper application.
