So the last four marauders are on the painting tabel. Well the last four for the first squad that is. I got a question the other day of how I painted my reaver lord. There is no great trick to it or any great secret. So I thought I could share the recipe here on the blog. Maybe it can inspire someone.
First step is to paint the model black. I do this with a black spray but you can easily just do it with a paint brush. After that I dry brush the model with a light silver. There are many ways to dry brush something. But the best way I have found is to dry brush first in one direction and then go over it again in an intersecting direction. That way you end up with a nice criss-cross pattern. Next step is to sponge light silver on the model. I know some guys don’t like this method. But I think it is a nice easy way to give some open areas some texture. Last step for today is to wash the whole model in any black wash. Idea is to dull it down a bit. You might need to do this one or two times to get the preferred darkness on the surfaces.
Tomorrow we will add some contrast color and try to dirty the model up a bit.
