//z-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/onejs?MarketPlace=USThe first thing to note is that using a black matte primer (vs. a gloss, never use a gloss primer!!!) was all the difference! It does almost all of the work in prepping the model and leaves you free to focus on picking out the details in different colors.

I decided to hand paint the parchment script, rather than use the Micron pen that I usually have for such a task. It proved to be a fun challenge, keeping the lines straight, and I would suggest that if you are a newer painter or just not comfortable painting small squiggly lines of script, to use a Micron .005 black pen, it will really save you a lot of time and headache!

As for the rest of the mini, here are the colors I used:

Rakarth Flesh – Bone Mask, Ribcage, Parchment Bits and Robe Lining

Leadbelcher – Bolter Bits, Crozius, Chain, Neck Coils, Belt Buckle, Backpack Vents

Retributor Armor – Spikey Bit around the Crozius, Kneepad Skull, Iron Halo, Chest Logo, Hanging Totems, Shoulder Pad Rims, Skull Shaped Buttons on Robe

Screamer Pink – Crozius Handle

Khorne Red – Pistol Casing, Eye Lenses, Purity Seals, Book Cover

Mournfang Brown – Belt and Pouches

Wash it all with Nuln Oil and re-highlight with base colors.

Highlight the black areas with Eshin Grey, Dawnstone, and Administratum Grey.

One of the easier models to base because of the predominant black areas, so you can really go to town on the highlights and blending.

Eldar Howling Banshees Showcase

Buy Eldar Howling Banshees on Amazon

Let’s wrap up these 12 Ulthwe Howling Banshees!

Beautiful, but inconceivably alien and vicious! Just like my ex! Heyoooh!

These were a blast to paint!

If you remember my Unboxing video, I bemoaned the twelve minis I had to work with because of all the FINECAAAAAST issues I had to work around.

But much like a beat-up, abused and neglected old car, I knew that once I had cleaned up the minis and gotten couple layers of paint on them, they would shine again.

It’s a painful process, but one that will ultimately be so much more rewarding.

For these twelve models, the hardest step after the cleaning and priming was those initial colors. I really had to grit my teeth and power through the basecoats.

At the time I was sure that here would be no way I could cover up all of the miscasts, but here I am now, looking back and just enjoying the finished product.

As a sidebar…

You can paint anything!

That came out of nowhere, but it is such a strong belief of mine, I need to keep repeating it, in the event, dear reader, that you ever feel discouraged and want to just put down the brush.

If I can make these FINECAST Howling Banshees look like they stepped fresh out of a magazine, then you can finish whatever you’re working on.

Don’t give up, y’all!

Stay tuned because I’ll be releasing a written guide to painting up your Howling Banshees just like I did!
