About Games Workshop Paint

Games Workshop is a UK-based company that was founded in the 1970s. It specialises in wargames and sells all kinds of tabletop game mats, figures, and paints to customise them with. Whether you, or your friends, are into Lord of the Rings, Warhammer, or any of the other incredible and innovative games that Games Workshop sell, you’ll find a plethora of Games Workshop paints to customise them with right here. 

How To Use Games Workshop Paint

Games Workshop paint can be used in all kinds of ways - add life and detail to your mini-figures, weather your landscape models, or add scuffs and dents to model cars or planes. 

The first step to beginning your painting is to undercoat your models. You can use either a dark or light colour depending on the effect you are after in your model. Use a medium-sized brush and mix your chosen colour with a tiny amount of water on your palette to thin the paint enough to give a good colour wash without blocking up the fine details of your model. Starting with the recessed sections, apply your first coat and allow to dry. You will probably be able to still see some of the base plastic through it - this is okay. Let the first coat dry and add a second, allowing that to dry before moving onto the next step. 

The next step is to base cost your figure. Pick up a pot of Citadel Base colour for the best effects. These base colour Games Workshop paints are highly pigmented and act as a good base for future shading, blending and highlighting. Repeat the same process with your basecoat as you did with your undercoat, thinning and applying layers to the areas you want to feature your basecoat colour. If you accidentally touch parts you don’t want to have the same colour, not to worry, you can touch those up with another colour. This is your opportunity to decide on the colour of the armour, skin, and weapons of your model!

Shading can be done super quickly and easily with the range of shade paints. These runny paints can be applied to small, specific areas of your model to add depth, or applied all over to dull bright colours and bring out the recesses in the model. 

You can add highlights to your models by dry brushing. Take a dry brush and a tiny amount of paint to it (The dry paint line is ideal for this), dabbing it away and working the paint into your brush on your palette until almost gone. Then brush across the area you want to highlight, layering up the paint to create a good highlight effect. 

Add some final details by layering up layer paint onto the raised edges and highlights to finish off your wonderful paint job! The layer paints are fairly translucent but still require thinning a little to help them go onto the model smoothly. Use long brush strokes and admire your work when you’re done!
