How to paint Word Bearers – Tutorial

Step 1 – Base Colours

How to paint Word Bearers Armour - Step 1

Over a black primer paint the following base colours:

Step 2 – Shading

How to paint Word Bearers Armour - Step 2

Shade Vallejo Gold with Flesh Tearers Red + Contrast Medium (50:50 mix)

When fully dry, apply a second coat of thinned Flesh Tearers Red.

Applying as two thin coats helps to reduce the tide marks across the smooth panels of the armour.

Shade the following colours with Nuln Oil:

Shade the Rakarth Flesh with Agrax Earthshade

Step 3 – Highlight

Edge highlight as follows:

Armour with Stormhost Silver + Flesh Tearers Red Contrast (50:50 mix)

Silver with Ironbreaker. This just gives a highlight without being overpowering.

Eshin grey with Dawnstone

Dark Reaper with Thunderhawk Blue

Rakarth Flesh with Pallid Wych Flesh

Step 4 – Add Details

The last few details to finish off are:

The eyes I basecoated Caliban Green, layered with Warpstone Glow and final layer of Moot Green.

The skulls and bones I aged by doing a final glaze of Seraphim Sepia.

The tusks I basecoated Rakarth Flesh, shaded the base with Agrax Earthshade, then painted stripes of Seraphim Sepia, Pallid Wych Flesh and Screaming Skull working towards the tip.

Gold details were based with Retributor Armour, shaded with Agrax Earthshade then layered with Liberator Gold. Finally, these details were highlighted with Stormhost Silver.
