Saim Hann How to paint 2We are going to use the natural transparency of red to our advantage here, so instead of being afraid of the color, we’ll go right at it! Plus, you can see all the colors at the top he will be using. He obviously, also starts with a black primer.

Step 1:

Next, he adds Evil Sun Scarlett but this time he doesn’t tilt the model almost at all and does this again from the top-down angle. To finish this step, he does a single coat of Carroburg Crimson wash over all the red.

Step 2:

You don’t have to be too worried about the paint from the inside of the helmet spilling over to the rest of the helmet because we’ll paint over that later. He just does one good coat over everything he wants black.

Then he breaks out the Stegadon Scale Green and does a quick highlight of the black areas and the eyes. Next he does all the gems with Ahriman blue and does another highlight of the eyes. To finish this step, he breaks out Celestial Grey and covers the rest of the helmet with it. Then does a final highlight of the white with Ulthuan Grey.

Step 3:
