TUTORIAL: PAINTING INFINITY NOMAD RED ARMOUR

Here is a Step-by-step guide of how to paint Infinity Nomad Red Armour - Scar_hand Painting's style :)



A complete Recipee used to paint my Infinity Nomads may be found in COLOUR RECIPEES: INFINITY NOMADS. You can also find some additional pictures in the NOMADS: CORREGIDOR lvl 4,5 Gallery.

I used:
* GW Standard Brush,
* Tamiya Modeling Brush HG,
* AP Wargamer: The Psycho,
* GW Chaos Black Undercoat,
* GW Mechrite Red, (When this one runs out i'll switch to P3 Formula 'Sanguine Base' instead),
* GW Wazdakka Red,
* AP Skeleton Bone,
* White,
* AP Strong Tone Ink,
* AP Red Tone Ink,

 1) I used Chaos Black spray to undercoat the model. I usually do this by applying eight layers of undercoat from eight different angles (four at the front and four at the back of the model, each at the same 45* angle with one directed up, one down, one left and one right side of the model).

2) The first layer of Red was made with Standard Brush and Mechrite Red. I tried not to fill the recesses too much and to cover all buldes smoothly.


3) I switched to Tamiya Modeling Brush and applied Wazdakka Red to all bulges and flat surfaces of the armour, leaving cavities Mechrite Red'ed. This madethe armour look more smooth and ready to be highlighted.



 4) I applied a 50%/50% mix of Wazdakka Red and Skeleton Bone in the middle and on the edges of particular surfaces. 



 5) I added White to the Wazdakka/Skeleton mix and further lined the model.


6) More White was added to the mix and another layer of lines and points was made.


7)  I switched back to Standard Brush and washed the armour with Strong Tone Ink.


8) I switched to The Psycho to add some Skeleton Bone/White lining in the key points of the armour.


9) I switched to Tamiya Modeling Brush and washed the armour with Red Tone Ink.


10) "Oops! I did it again" washing all the armour with Red Tone Ink to finally finish it. 


Hope that you find this little tut useful and that you will post some pictures of miniatures painted this way ;)

Remember:
Steel for humans...
Silver for monsters...
Brush for miniatures ;)
