Step-by-Step: Painting a Space Wolf
[Page 1 of 3]
Space Marine! These two words conjure up feelings of dread and respect... or at least a casual, "Oh, yeah, one of those armies in the starter box. Was the store all out of Tau and Eldar?"
All silly jabs aside, Space Marine armies are very common in the gaming world. Below is a basic step-by-step guide on painting a Space Wolf Runepriest. Consider it an overall review of the painting process.
Note that both the base and backpack are seperate, on pins inserted into cork stoppers or mounted on wooden blocks. Keeping these sorts of pieces seperate greatly speeds the painting process by allowing you easy access to areas that would otherwise be difficult to paint. I also painted most of the armour on the backpack as a colour test -- if I didn't like the look, I could just replace the backpack rather than strip and start over.
Beneath his foot, the stone has been painted in colours to match the stone base. It's important to paint areas that require messy techniques like drybrushing or heavy washes first so as not to mess up surrounding areas later.
