Another new guest blog from Tom – a fantastic painter with some bone crunching armies. He has been painting figures for more years than I can count and has some great tips to pass on!
In todays show we will be learning how to paint a Deathwing Terminator. I say show, I mean lesson, or blog, actually no its more of a rambling of step by step stages – but it does the job!
This is what we are going to paint:
1: the model is sprayed with skull white, i did 2 coats to get a more even coverage. The raised area on the base is some plasticard which is going to be painted as stone later.
2: Wash the whole model with Seraphim Sepia. Make sure this is fully dry before the next stage!
3: Paint all the armoured panels with Ushabti Bone, leaving the wash to show as a shadow in the recesses. You can see what I mean below:
4: Go around all the edges of the armour with Screaming skull feathering it into the Ushabti Bone to get a smooth effect.
5: Highlight some of the more exposed edges of the armor with White Scar keeping the line as thin as possible.
6: Base coat the red areas of the model with Khorne Red, the green areas with Caliban Green, all the purity seals with Screaming skull, the Crux Terminatus and pipes(including backs of knees) with Mechanicus Standard Grey.
