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.

Finished:

  2. @SC John: I can only recommend the foundation paints – They have a nice coverage and speeds the painting up, as number brush-overs are reduced. Further to that you can actually paint light colours like yellow over black.
