'How I Paint' Series: Silver Tower, Kairic Acolytes

Finally I get round to the Kairic Acolytes, I used a similar technique for their skin to which I done for my Fyreslayers and also Nurgle Rotbringers. But I do detail it all again below. These models are strange but because of their detail and definition they are a joy to paint! Here is 'How I Paint' them.

(Please Note: I show ways of painting miniatures in efficient time but maintaining quality, this is How I Paint them, not always how they should be painted, you are free to use and distribute photos and use any techniques I go over freely too)

I began by doing some zenithal spraying (Black from bottom, Grey middle tones and White from the top). I then used a glaze of Skin Tone (Vallejo Model) to paint all over the model, this began the process of defining the features and muscle. 

I washed the whole skin with Reikland Fleshshade

For the tabards, I used Palid Wytch Flesh and recess washed with Nuln Oil.

I base coated the shields and metallic armour with Temple Guard Blue. 

The Temple Guard Blue was washed with Drakenhoff Nightshade whilst the front loin cloth is washed with 2 coats of Druchi Violet.

Once based in a simple stone scheme, the model was complete! 

I hope you enjoyed this and you find some bits useful for yourselves, if you have a question please use comments below. Thanks!
