How to paint the Yvraine set
- Step 1: Prime Your Model
Begin by applying a thin, even coat of primer to your Yvraine model. This will provide a smooth surface for the paint to adhere to and enhance its durability.
- Step 2: Basecoat the Robes
Using a brush, apply a base color to the robes of Yvraine. For example, you can use a dark purple shade like Naggaroth Night or a deep blue shade like Kantor Blue. Apply the basecoat evenly, covering all areas of the robes.
- Step 3: Highlight the Robes
Choose 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 Naggaroth Night, you can use a lighter purple shade like Xereus Purple or a lighter blue shade like Alaitoc Blue for the highlights.
- Step 4: Paint the Armor and Weapons
Using a suitable metallic color, paint the armor and weapons of Yvraine. For example, you can use a silver metallic shade like Leadbelcher or a gold metallic shade like Gehenna’s Gold. Apply the paint carefully, capturing the intricate details of the armor and weapons.
- Step 5: Detail the Face and Hair
Paint the face and hair of Yvraine using appropriate colors. For the face, you can use flesh tones like Eldar Flesh for the base and Pallid Wych Flesh for the highlights. For the hair, consider using a dark color like Abaddon Black or a deep brown shade like Rhinox Hide.
- Step 6: Add Accents and Gems
Using a fine-tipped brush, add accents and gems to the model. For example, you can paint small details with colors like Evil Sunz Scarlet or Warpstone Glow to create vibrant gems or intricate patterns.
- Step 7: Apply Washes
Apply washes to certain areas of the model to add depth and enhance details. For example, you can use a suitable wash like Nuln Oil for the metallic areas and Drakenhof Nightshade for the robes. Apply the washes carefully, allowing them to settle into the recesses.
- Step 8: 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 9: Base the Model
Consider adding texture to the base of your Yvraine model to enhance its appearance. You can use texture paints or other materials to create a realistic base. For example, you can use Astrogranite Debris texture paint and add small rocks or foliage for extra detail.
- Step 10: 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.
