Painting Miniature Faces - Tabletop Standard
Bayonet here with another beginner-grade tutorial. This time I'm looking at quick and easy ways to do human Caucasian faces.
Now when I started my Space Wolves project I decided that the entire Army would go helmet-less, no small feat as I have over 70 infantry models in my collection! The real challenge was when you are forced to use the same head twice, that's where different hair colours, scars, facial hair, and tattoos all come in - But for now let's keep it simple.
- White Scar
- Rakkarth Flesh
- Abaddon Black
- Reikland Fleshshade
- Agrax Earthshade
Estimated Time: 10-20 Minutes
Painting Faces - Step 1Rakkarth Flesh. Try to miss the hair and any facial accessories but if you don't manage to then it's easily covered up later.
Painting Miniature Faces - Step 2Apply a slightly watered down Reikland Fleshshade liberally onto the flesh, try and move the wash away from raised edges such as cheek bones, tip of the nose and chin whilst letting it pool into any recesses.
Painting Miniature Faces - Step 3Agrax Earthshade to the eye sockets and in mouth (if it's open) and allow to dry - this gives the impression of these areas being deeper and darker than the other facial features where pooling has occurred.
Painting Miniature Faces - FINAL STEP
Here's some I made earlier!
