How to paint the XV25 Stealth Battlesuits set
- Step 1: Prime Your Miniatures
Begin by applying a thin, even coat of Chaos Black Spray primer to your XV25 Stealth Battlesuits. This ensures better adhesion of the paint to the models.
- Step 2: Basecoat the Armor
Using a medium-sized brush, paint the main armor sections with White Scar. Apply several thin coats to achieve a smooth and even coverage. This serves as the foundation for the armor’s color.
- Step 3: Adding Dark Sections
Use a dark color like Abaddon Black to cover smaller sections such as joints, boots, and select armor details. This contrast adds depth to the overall appearance of the battlesuits.
- Step 4: Highlight with Light Grey
Employ a lighter grey shade like Administratum Grey to carefully highlight the edges and raised areas of the white armor. This technique imparts a sense of three-dimensionality to the models.
- Step 5: Add Red Details
Apply red details, such as symbols, buttons, or lens covers, using a red paint like Evil Sunz Scarlet. These vibrant accents bring visual interest to the battlesuits’ design.
- Step 6: Shading with Washes
Enhance shadows and depth by applying a black wash like Nuln Oil to the recesses and crevices of the armor. This shading technique adds realism to the models.
- Step 7: Finer Details
Use a fine brush to meticulously add intricate details, such as thin lines on the armor or insignias, using colors like Mechanicus Standard Grey. Patience and precision are key during this step.
- Step 8: Seal Your Work
Protect your meticulous paint job by applying a layer of Munitorum Varnish matte varnish spray. This prevents chipping and provides a uniform finish across the models.
