In this post, I’ll show you how to paint your Hobgrots from the Age of Sigmar Dominion set in just 10 easy to follow steps. You’ll learn how I paint shaded skin, dirty metals and more. Find out how in this tutorial.
This tutorial assumes you have a good understanding of how to paint Warhammer miniatures. With each picture is the corresponding instruction. Each step shows the Citadel paint(s) I used. You’ll find a list of all the paints used in this tutorial at the end of the post.
How to paint Hobgrots
Undercoat your model with Wraithbone undercoat spray.
Create a mix of 1 part Zandri Dust and 4 parts Contrast medium and wash the entire miniature. This takes a while to dry so it’s a good idea to work on several models at once. By the time you get to the last model the first should be dry.
Once step two is completely dry, create a mix of 1 part Agrax Earthshade and 2 parts Contrast medium and wash the entire miniature.
When step 3 is dry, create a mix of 1 part Nazdreg Yellow and 1 part Lahmian Medium and wash the entire model. If the paint starts to pool and collect in one place use a spare brush to wick it away before it starts to dry.
Using an old large brush or a dedicated drybrush put some Morghast Bone on the brush and wipe all of it off on a tissue and then repeatedly and quickly brush the model backwards and forwards to dry brush the model. This should be subtle.
Paint the ropes with Flesh Tearers Red straight from the pot. Then mix 1 part Flesh Tearers with 3 parts Lahmian Medium and paint a thin coat on the eyes, lip, nose tip and scars. The red on the rope rubs off really easy so try not touch it (use a paint handle with a finger rest) or brush on some Stormshied Technical Varnish.
Paint all the metal areas with a Leadbelcher. A touch of Lahmian Medium helps smooth out metallic paints and makes them easier to brush on.
Wash all the areas of metal, the shoulder straps, weapon handles, pants, teeth and claws with Contrast Wyldwood.
Paint small metallic chips to the edges of the metal parts. Make this look random. Smaller the better.
Paint the the teeth and claws with Morghast Bone. Add a dot of Morghast to the red eye.
The base is Stirland Mud technical paint and the base rim is Steel Legion Drab.
