Welcome to part 2 of the Justaerin painting guide. If you missed part one you can catch up here.
Step 8: Highlight the gold with Runelord Brass. I applied this to the top edges and rivets only. I also added some to the top of the 'ball' on the axe and the ammo hoppers under the gun.
Step 9: Highlight the silvers with Runefang Steel. Lightly added the top of all the silvers. I made sure to only get paint on the raised areas of the cables to keep the Leadbelcher and wash showing in the gaps.
Step 10: Highlight the cutting edges on the axe with Runefang steel. Applied only to the front and back cutting edges in a striking manor to give it a used look. I also added thin highlights to edges of the axe.
Step 11: Highlight the red with Mephiston Red. Added to the edges of the red leather and the thinly to the edge of the shoulder pad. I picked out the rivets on the red shoulder pad as well. The insides of the Eye of Horus on the belt and shoulder were repainted in Mephiston leaving the wash showing around the edges.
Step 12: Add Evil Suns Scarlet to the Eye of Horus on the belt and shoulder. Make sure you leave the Mephiston showing around the edges, you want to build up small triangles of colour.
Step 13: Add Troll Slayer Orange in the same manor as step 12. You should leave the Mephiston and Evil Suns Scarlett showing.
Step 14: The finishing step is to make the black shine! I applied a 50/50 mix of Lahmian Medium and 'Ardcoat to all armour areas. This included all the golds and silvers. I did not add it to the leather, gun or axe. I have not decided if I should apply it to the gun or axe, your thoughts on this would be appreciated! The picture below is just after I applied the mix.
Step 15: Leave to dry overnight!
Step 16: Enjoy your finished model!
I will be adding weathering once I have all 30 Justaerin painted up to this point and I will complete the base at the same time. I haven't decided what style base to do yet and this will affect some of the weather that I will do. Originally I had planned to do a city fight style but not sure if this will be to dark. Anyone got any thoughts or suggestions on what they think will compliment the paint scheme? Once I have completed these bits I will add a further guide for weathering and basing!
