Deadzone – Rebs Painting Guide!

Rebs-4

Here’s a guide as to how I panted up my Rebs Force.

The first thing to say is there were a few basic colours that stayed the same throughout the force; the armour, blacks, reds, metals and leather. So here’s a rundown of how those colours were achieved:

Armour

Armour: The armour was painted in the same fashion as my Deadzone terrain. Take a look HERE to see how that was acheived.

Black

Blacks: Basecoat with Abaddon Black

Highlight of Mechanicus Standard Grey with a touch of Hawk Turquoise focussing on the top edge of the folds and raised areas

Highlight of Codex Grey with a touch of Hawk Turquoise

Fine Highlight of Fortress Grey with a touch of Hawk Turquoise

Was of Nuln oil mixed with a bit of Lahmian Medium

Reds

and finally a glaze of Bloodletter

Metal

Leather

Leather: Over a Dryad Bark base I added two highlights

The rest is mainly the flesh of the different species and other small details which I’ll go into here:Grogan2

Lenses/Screens: I use the same method for these no matter the colour using a Dark, Medium and Light version of whatever colour I would like them to be…

Basecoat of Dark

Highlight of Medium but keeping to the bottom and right

Fine Highlight of Light again to the bottom and right

Final dot of 1:1 Light and Ceramite White on the bottom right corner

A tiny dot of white in the top left corner and a coat of gloss varnish can be used to further enhance this

And there you have it, thats pretty much how I painted my Rebs force. I hope this helps anyone else looking to get the same or a similar effect 🙂

  2. Only one thing is missing (or I didn’t see it), how did you make the bases of these miniatures. It could be another good tutorial…
