How to paint the Windriders set
- Step 1: Base Coat
Apply a solid base coat of black paint to the Windrider’s hull. Use a black paint like Abaddon Black or any other black paint you prefer. Ensure even coverage and let it dry completely.
- Step 2: Craftworld Colors
Choose the color scheme for your Craftworld and paint the respective details. For example, if your Craftworld is Ulthwé, paint the helmet and shoulder pad trims with a black paint, like Corvus Black. If your Craftworld is Saim-Hann, paint these details with red, using a red paint like Mephiston Red or any other red paint you prefer.
- Step 3: Detailing
Using a fine brush, carefully paint the gems and runes on the Windrider using vibrant colors. For example, use Spiritstone Red or a similar color for the gems, and use Runefang Steel for the runes. Apply these colors carefully to achieve clean lines and precise details.
- Step 4: Detailing
Paint the rider’s armor and weapons using appropriate colors. For example, you can use colors like Rhinox Hide or XV-88 for brown leathers, or Balthasar Gold for metallic parts. Apply these colors carefully to ensure well-defined details.
- Step 5: Highlighting
Create highlights on the black hull by adding a lighter shade. Mix a small amount of Dark Reaper with the black base coat to create a slightly lighter shade. Apply this mixture to the raised edges and contours of the hull, emphasizing the shape and adding dimension.
- Step 6: Wash
For added depth and shading, consider applying a wash to the Windrider. Use a wash like Nuln Oil or a wash color that complements your chosen color scheme. Apply the wash selectively to recessed areas and panel lines, and wipe off any excess wash with a clean brush or cloth.
- Step 7: Fine Details
Add any additional fine details you desire, such as symbols or freehand designs on the model, using contrasting colors. Consider using a bright yellow or white for striking visual impact. Apply these colors carefully and take your time to achieve clean and precise lines.
- Step 8: Varnish
To protect your hard work and give the Windrider a finished look, apply a varnish. Choose a matte varnish to maintain the sleek appearance of the model. Follow the instructions on the varnish product for proper application.
