  1. Basecoat armour with Averland Sunset .
  2. Either zenethal highlight with thinned Yriel Yellow from a downward 45 degree angle or glaze in where the light would hit.
  3. Recess shade with Iyanden Yellow thinned with Contrast Medium 1:1. Don't be too neat, the contrast should pull towards the recess and give something like a transition. Now is also a good time to paint the under-suit/tubing by your preferred method.
  4. Recess shade everything again, this time being careful, and using thinned Mournfang Brown .
  5. Selectively recess shade with thinned Rhinox Hide , aiming for the very deepest parts.
  6. Add a chunky highlight of Yriel Yellow to all edges. Alternatively, you can mix a vibrant yellow like Flash Gitz Yellow with the Averland Sunset from earlier.
  7. Edge highlight everything again with Yriel Yellow and Screaming Skull mixed 1:1.
  8. Selectively edge highlight the most exposed curved edges and corners where highlights meet with Screaming Skull and a pure white mixed 1:1.
  9. Add dot highlights of a pure white like Dead White to the centre of the previous highlights and points/corners.
