In this tutorial we will see how to paint the Orange armor of a XV8 Crisis Battlesuit T’au, all in a simple and fast way.

Let’s Start!

Primer

Firstly, the head is separated from the rest of the body to be able to paint the whole set more comfortably. A primer is applied, using Hobby Paint Spray Sun Yellow 28.018.

Shadows / Shades

In all the lower areas, we will simulate shadows using Game Air Hot Orange 72,709 .

As you can see in the photos, I use an airbrush booth , which includes an extractor so that way the suspended paint does not spread throughout the room.

Edge Highlighting

We’ll highlight this orange armor in 2 steps . First, Game Air Dead White 72.701 is applied mixed with a littleGame Air Moon Yellow 72.705.

The highlight is finished using very dilutedGame Air Moon Yellow 72.705 It will be airbrushed only over the white paint from the previous step, achieving an intense yellow.

Washes

Game Wash Umber Wash 73.203 is applied in all the nooks and crannies of the armor, applying it carefully with the brush. The wash can be mixed with a little Model Color German C. Black Brown 70.822 to obtain an opaque wash.

Edge Highlighting

To finish with the armor, an edge highlighting is done using Model Color Ice Yellow 70.858. A pinch of Model Color White 70.951 can be added to the mix to increase the intensity in some spots.

Below you can see some photos of the miniature after following these steps:
