An alternative take on the Storm Lords.

The main colours are red, white, black, and silver.

General Information:

My general method is to lay down all the base colours for the model, then do all the shading in the recesses before moving on to the highlights.

I don't own an airbrush, so the recipe will mainly consist of brush on paints.

Left and Right are based on the model's perspective.

Priming:

I find the metallic sprays from GW tend to be a little on the transparent side, so an initial undercoat of black helps.

Because the scheme has an all black backpack, I primed it separately from the main model using a paperclip glued to where the pack attaches to the model.

  1. Prime the model and the backpack with Chaos Black
  2. Prime over the body with Leadbelcher

Silver (Armour Trim):

I generally start with the armour trim so that any time I get paint on another piece its easy to cover later.

For grenades, replace Nuln Oil with Athonian Camoshade

  1. Drybrush over the body with Leadbelcher to even out the colour
  2. Shade the recesses and around any rivets with Nuln Oil
  3. Highlight fine points and sharp edges with Stormhost Silver
  4. Add a rust effect using thinned Skrag Brown

Red (Armour Panels - Right Side):

  1. Base with Mephiston Red
  2. Shade the recesses with Agrax Earthshade
  3. Highlight the edges with Evil Sunz Scarlet
  4. Add a fine highlight of Wild Rider Red
  5. Highlight fine points with Fire Dragon Bright

White (Armour Panels - Left Side):

  1. Base with Celestra Grey
  2. Layer the middle with Ulthuan Grey
  3. Shade the recesses with Agrax Earthshade
  4. Highlight fine points and sharp edges with White Scar

Tan (Details - Cloth, Wraps):

  1. Base with Ushabti Bone
  2. Shade the recesses with Agrax Earthshade
  3. Highlight the edges with Screaming Skull

Pink (Details - Lenses, Eyes):

  1. Base with Screamer Pink
  2. Shade the recesses with Agrax Earthshade
  3. Layer the middle with Pink Horror
  4. Add fine points of Fulgrim Pink

Brown (Details - Leather Pouches):

  1. Base with Rhinox Hide
  2. Shade the recesses with Agrax Earthshade
  3. Roughly highlight the edges with Skrag Brown
  4. Add a fine highlight of Ushabti Bone

Black (Details - Armour Ribbing):

  1. Base with Abaddon Black
  2. Highlight the edges with Eshin Grey
  3. Highlight fine points and sharp edges with Dawnstone
