A week ago, I posted on here about painting the Blessed Wormlings. If you missed part one, click here. Now, if you have seen part one already, amazing. I ask you to take a moment to hit subscribe and stay up to date with my progress. With all the intros complete, let's get into the grime and head into part two.
Painting Guide: Genestealer Cult - The Blessed Wormlings.
Last week we finished on stage five - Shading. Seems a legit place to restart.
As I mentioned, this would be a great spot to stop and have a great tabletop ready miniature. Due to the fact, I am doing a very, slow growth force, I decided I would add a few extra steps and get a couple more details in place.
Stage 6 - Metallics.
Stage 8 - Highlighting - Gun and Suit.
Due to having darkened the model down, it was time to go back and pick out some highlights. Grabbing the Mephiston Red paint, I proceeded to edge highlight the gun casing. After this step, I got the Waaagh! green and I touched up the mining suit and boots. During this stage, I found myself getting pretty excited about the model, it is looking close to my sample image, and I can imagine the force as a whole and how they will finally all look together.
Stage 9 - Flesh and Glasses.
The glasses were a simple add on stage. Using Flayed Flesh paint that I had left on the brush, I mixed in some Ultramarine blue paint to make a light blue, using this, I picked out the top third of the glasses working down.
Stage 10 - Mining Suit, final Highlight.
At this stage, I was feeling pretty happy with the result but felt another highlight should be added to the suit to help it pop. I used Zandri Dust to achieve this, when I first started off I was worried I made a huge mistake, but I stuck with it, ending up with a look I am quite proud of.
Stage 11 - Base.
Then, the final stage was upon us. The base ultimately will help tie the models together, so is a pretty important stage. To get the brown just right, I had to layer with about three coats to get the solid brown I wanted. Then, I set about dry brushing the cork aspects with Zandri Dust, this helps to pick out the texture and then finally, it was all given a heavy wash of Agrax Earthshade to blend it together.
With that, I put the model to the side and called it complete. I would say this is not going to win any prizes, it is definitely painted beyond the standard tabletop level. Ultimately, I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial? If you have hit subscribe and drop me a comment below. Cheers for stopping by.
