In this post I’ll show you how to paint Aeldari Webway Gates fast and easy. You’ll learn not only how to paint pale ivory wraithbone with drybrushing, but also how to paint scarlet gems and turquoise energy orbs. Find out more in this tutorial.
This tutorial assumes you have a good understanding of how to paint Warhammer miniatures. Underneath each picture is the corresponding instruction. Each step shows the paint(s) I used. I have a rather eclectic paint collection, so when I use a paint that’s not from Games Workshop or out of production, I’ll try to provide you with suitable alternatives from the current Citadel paint range [in brackets]. However, if you want to achieve the exact same result as shown, you might want to expand your paint collection withthe specific colour. You’ll find a list of all the paints used in this tutorial at the end of the post.
How to paint bone-white Aeldari Webway Gates
Prime with Corax White or any other suitable white or light primer, then apply a basecoat of Reaper Master Series Polished Bone [mix of Rakarth Flesh / Pallid Wych Flesh] with an airbrush or large brush.
Apply a wash of Seraphim Sepia directly into the recesses of the model.
Wash the brass with Seraphim Sepia.
Basecoat the energy orbs with Stegadon Scale Green.
Basecoat the gems with Khorne Red.
Shade the upper left corner by applying some thinned Gal Vorbak Red.
Layer Pink Horror, concentrating on the lower right half of the gem.
Highlight the lower right corner with Emperor’s Children.
And there we have the finish Aeldari Webway Gates, painted in a bone-white paint scheme matching the broken Aeldari masonry on the bases of my Craftworld Iybraesil collection. Check out my showcase post for a cool scenic shot of my Aeldari Webway Gates.
