This is a first of a series of painting tips which cover a lot of Zaal, the Ancestral Advocate, and will cover nearly the entire model.

In the first part, I paint the main body of the model to appear obsidian. Intermediate painters will have little trouble with these techniques, and beginners wishing to push their painting further will definitely want to attempt what is covered in this video.

All paints used in the video are Formula P3 by Privateer Press unless stated otherwise.

Base – Thamar Black
Highlight 1 – pure Coal Black
Highlight 2 – 25/75 mix of Frostbite + Coal Black

Re-take all the cracks, and fix any areas where too much highlight might have been applied with thinned Thamar Black.

Highlight 3 – just edge highlight with a 50/50 mix of Frostbite + Coal Black
