A major part of playing Warhammer is making and painting miniature figures. Without being able to modify, change or decide how your army will look, the game would not have the depth and playability that Warhammer currently offers gamers.
To paint a figure, you must follow a few simple steps to make them look good. You can purchase citadel paints via online sources.
1. Undercoat. First, you must apply a thin layer of black undercoat paint. This should be a matt black and is usually sprayed on from an aerosol can.
2. Base Colors. Once the undercoat is dry, using a brush, start to pick out the main areas of color on your figure. This could be armor, skin or clothes. It might also be good to paint darker colors first.
3. Wash Time. Once the main color has been applied and is dry, mix a darker version of the same color (or similar) and water it down so that it resembles ink.
4. Dry Brush. When the wash is dry, which can take some time, it is time to bring out the highlights on the figure. This can be done by using a technique called dry brushing.
5. Details. Once the dry brushing has been done, use a very fine brush to pick out details on the figures such as eyes, buckles or guns. Take your time on this part as it is the time when it can transform a boring looking figure to an amazing one.
