Miniature painting is hard enough as it is, so my goal was to make it as quick and as easy as possible. I did it in less than half an hour, but with a little bit of practice you can scale it up easily.
Okay, so where’s the catch? You may need an airbrush, it’s still possible to achieve a similar effect without it but it won’t be as fast. If you choose not to use an airbrush I would like to recommend you check out my previous painting metallic tutorial.
List of tools you’ll need:
List of paints I used:
You can use any kind of cheap makeup brush. It just needs to be fairly flat and not too soft. Remember that you’ll need it for dry brushing so it won’t last long anyway. You can also use a different kind of Contrast paint, any kind of wash or contrast should work, so feel free to experiment. You don’t need to paint Alpha Legion. 🙂
