Small thumb paintfinal

Hello everyone !!!

This is the continuation of the last tutorial (painting red : LINK
If you didn't read it, stop here and check it out before continuing ;)

Let's start !

As usual i started with Priming black with a GW can.

It's worth noting that i kept, head, bolter + arms and main body separate.

Look a the new bolters arms connector




Grey zenithal

At first i planned to do everything with thinned white but it's faster to a grey pass ! You get a very good gradient and it's easier.
Of course i had to clean the airbrush but if you do the whole starter set or a bunch of red marines in one go it's worth it.
Just do it with a 45°/60° angle and not 90° like normal zénithal.

For reference :
Grey zénithal at 45°



White zénithal at 90°


My white zenithal

Getting cute and smooth transition very easily. I swear you can do it with nearly no skill with an airbrush and even with a cheap Chinese made.

RED
Took super thinned down red at 8 waters 2 paints
Not mephisto red because i left my pot open the other day and it's all dried now. I used scale75 red.

1 pass

6 or 7 pass

I know it's shinny ! It's because i took the pic before the model was completely dry.

Black lining

Nothing special here, take black and paint line between armor plates^^.
If you use a dark color but not black, the result will look more realist and less "comics"
From here it's nearly complete on the red. All that left is painting edge highlight with Wild Rider Red from gw.

Completed model :

Bolter was painted black with grey lining.
Metal is : Boltgun, nuln oil, lining.
Leather pouch : used my old snakebite leather + tank brown from vallejo and white for hilight.
Chest-plate is : brown, gold, sepia wash, silver overbrush.
Edge highlight with Wild Rider Red.

Nothing incredible but the result look nice, it's a lot better in real life as the red gradient don't show much on picture. I really tried to get a good picture of it but i failed ^^ Check the first red tutorial for better images.
I painted this one in 1h30 i think but you can do a lot faster by painting a batch of them it's Should not be too hard to get the time in the 1h or 45 minutes per marines.

Still wondering about the base maybe "Hero base" for everyone ^^

note : It was my first time painting a Primaris and i loved it. They are so much better than the old marines.
I am not sure i want a Primaris army but now i can't go back to old angels ! The new models are so cool i cant wait to start painting the rest of the starter kit.

Hope it help you paint red.

/cheers.
