Paintguide: Catachan Gunny Harker
Today I’m looking at painting Harker – Showing you every step of the process from priming to the gaming table. The WIP pictures of the modelling can be found here: http://brushesanddolls.blogspot.com/2011/05/gunny-harker.html
Step 1: Tallarn Flesh.
I usually do flesh tones first, and this time was no different. To get a tanned look I started out with Tallarn Flesh as base colour.
Step 2: Orgyn Flesh
Orgyn Flesh was then applies over all areas of the Tallarn Flesh. I used 2 thin washes, in stead of one in order to get a smooth and even distribution on the area. Applying it in one go can some times make it difficult to avoid pools of wash.
Step 3: Tallarn Flesh Highlight
Tallarn Flesh was applied to all raised areas of torso, face and arms.
Step 4: Elf Flesh Highlight
Finally a light Elf Flesh highlight was applied on top of the previous highlight.
Step 5: Knarloc & Gretchin Green base colour.
Knarloc Green was applied to the bolter, grenades and ammo box & Gretchin Green was applied to the pants. Chaos black was used to cover areas where flesh colours were applied unintentionally.
Step 6: Boltgun Metal
Boltgun Metal was applied to the weapon and dogtag.
Step 7: Devlan Mud
Devlan Mud was washed over the pants and bolter
Step 8: Knarloc & Gretchin Highlights
Knarloc Green highlighted to the bolter, grenades and ammo box & Gretchin Green used for highlighting the pants.
Step 9: Tin Bits & Calthan Brown
Tin Bits was painted as base colour on ammo belts and Calthan Brown was applied as base for all leather items.
Step 10: Skull white
Skull white was applied to the eagle on the ammo box and the skull on the bolter
Step 11: Scorched brown & Gold
The hair was base coloured using scorched brown and gold was applied to the ammo feeds.
Step 12: Final detailing.
Black & White was used to paint the eyes and the hair was highlighted using Beastial Brown and Grave Yard Earth.
