This tutorial shows how to paint a yellow armor in a few simple steps. This tutorial can be used to paint yellow armor of all kinds, such as Warhammer 40,000 Imperial Fists space marines.
We have used the “Heavy Prime Strikers” figure from PuppetsWar.
Using an airbrush, apply 2 thin coats of Game Air Orange Fire 72.708.
To create a slight gradient, apply Game Air Hot Orange 72.709 to the shadow areas, using the airbrush once again.
Game Air Dead White 72.701 is airbrushed on the upper areas of the armor.
The areas previously painted white are covered with Game Air Moon Yellow 72.705.
Apply a general wash with the following mixture: 2 drops of Game Color Sepia Wash 73.200, 3 drops of Thinner Medium 70.524 and 4 drops of Flow Improver 71.362. The wash is then removed from the peak lighting areas with Flow Improver, so that it only settles in the recesses of the armor.
For this task, I used the number 0 brush from the Artis Opus M Series.
The rest of the details are painted.
Finally and in case you want to create battle damage quickly, make small chips with a brush or sponge, using Model Color German Camouflage Black Brown 70.822. Then paint the lower area of all the brown chips, using Model Color Ice Yellow 70.858 and Model Color White 70.951 to add volume.
