How to paint the Wyches set
- Step 1: Get Ready to Paint
Before we dive into the exciting world of painting Wyches, make sure you have all your materials handy. You’ll need brushes, water for rinsing brushes, a palette for mixing paints, and of course, your paints.
- Step 2: Prime Your Model
Grab your Wyches model and start by applying a thin, even coat of black primer. This will provide a good base for the paint to adhere to and ensure smooth and vibrant colors.
- Step 3: Bring the Skin to Life
Using a small brush, carefully paint the exposed skin areas of the Wyches with a pale flesh tone. Think of giving them a realistic complexion. For example, you can mix a little bit of Kislev Flesh with a touch of Pallid Wych Flesh.
- Step 4: Paint the Outfit
Choose a color for the Wyches’ outfit that speaks to your taste. With a steady hand, paint the outfit, making sure to stay within the lines. If you prefer a dark and bold look, consider using Khorne Red or Naggaroth Night for a rich and mysterious vibe.
- Step 5: Highlights for Dimension
Using a lighter shade of the base flesh color, highlight the raised areas of the skin. This will bring depth and definition to your Wyches. Mix Flayed One Flesh with a touch of White Scar to create a suitable highlight color.
- Step 6: Add Personal Touches
Now it’s time to add some extra details to the Wyches’ outfit. You can paint stripes, patterns, or symbols using a fine-tipped brush and a contrasting color. Try using Wazdakka Red for stripes or Xereus Purple for intricate patterns.
- Step 7: Hair That Stands Out
Pick a vibrant color for the Wyches’ hair, like blue, green, or purple. Paint each strand of hair carefully, ensuring you cover them all. Temple Guard Blue or Warpstone Glow can create some stunning hair colors.
- Step 8: Highlights for Hair
Using a lighter shade of the hair color, highlight the strands to add dimension. Consider mixing Baharroth Blue or Moot Green with a touch of white for those eye-catching highlights.
- Step 9: Weapons That Gleam
Choose a metallic color for the Wyches’ weapons, such as silver or bronze. With a steady hand, carefully paint the weapons, making sure to capture all the intricate details. Leadbelcher is a great choice for silver weapons, while Warplock Bronze can give a beautiful bronze look.
- Step 10: Fine Details
Don’t forget to add those special touches to the weapons, like gemstones or engraved patterns. Use a fine-tipped brush and contrasting colors to bring these details to life. Evil Sunz Scarlet for gemstones and Runefang Steel for patterns are excellent choices.
- Step 11: Finishing Touches
Take your time to create a realistic base for your Wyches. Apply texture paint or other materials to the base, and use drybrushing techniques with shades of brown to add highlights and depth. Agrellan Earth texture paint with a drybrush of Ushabti Bone can give a fantastic earthy effect.
- Step 12: Protect Your Masterpiece
To preserve your beautifully painted Wyches, apply a layer of varnish. Choose between matte or gloss finishes, depending on your preference. Follow the instructions on the varnish can for proper application and enjoy the lasting protection it provides.
