Have you recently purchased Cygnar’s newest character warjack but found yourself saying “Man, I would really love to learn how to paint him in a thoroughly mediocre fashion”?
Look no further, my friends… for within this post will be revealed all the secrets to allow you to paint Dynamo in a mostly-acceptable-but-not-awesome way!
As you can see from the first picture, I assembled and primed him in black. So far, so good.
Next, a quick dry brush of Cold Steel for all the metalic areas. This was followed swiftly by painting all the areas that will be gold with brown (in this case, “Bootstrap leather”, although in the future I think I’ll go with “Umbral Umber” instead… much darker!).
I actually really like the way this black-and-brown stage looks… I would happily put the model on the table at this point, even though it is barely 25% done!
The attentive among you will notice that I missed the kneecaps… I eventually realized and corrected that oversight.
Next, we start the shading… blues and whites are both shaded in this next picture, which is as far as I’ve gotten at this point, but I hope to revisit him tonight and/or tomorrow to start polishing off the white highlights.
After the white highlights come the blue highlights, and then lastly the golds! After that, just gotta paint the base with a quick succession of browns, and this bad boy will be ready to rain lightning down on the enemies of the Swans!
Let’s all see if I can update this post before it goes live on Wednesday!
