We spotted Jean Sebastien Denis’ expert painting and we just had to know how he did it – so we gave him a couple of Jackal Walkers to experiment with; here are the results.
Jean: Here’s my Jackal Walker Step by Step guide!
1 – The assembly
2 – Black Primer
3-4 – Base coat
Use a dark green, I used Castillan Green from Citadel.
5-6 – Heavy Dry brush
Use a lighter green/khaki, I used Antique Green from Americana.
7 – Light dry brush
Use a lighter green, I used 527 Forest Moss from Folkart (the left Jackal has been dry brushed with the lighter green and the right Jackal hasn’t).
8-9 – Apply the decals
10 – Quickshade
Quickshade the walker with a brownish tone ink, I used Agrax Earthshade from citadel (the left Jackal has been quickshaded and the right Jackal hasn’t).
11-13 – Add the details
Windows, MG, Flamethrower, spring behind the legs, etc.
14 – Black Shade
Black shade all the cracks with a fine brush (The left Jackal has been black shaded the right jackal hasn’t).
15-16 – Glowing effects
17 – Details of the reactor zone
I used Deep Blue from Army painter for the base color and then I applied thin layers, adding more and more towards the center with Ultramarine Blue from Army painter afterwards I used Voidshield blue from army painter and then I finished it with a dot or a line of white in the center.
18-19 – Add effects on the flamethrower
A Black dry brush the clique, after that the model is ready for varnish.
20-26 – Final Touches
I put some gloss varnish on the windows and the jetpack reactor zone and finished the base. For the base I used Army Painter Brown Battleground and the grass tufts are from the Army Painter Highland tuft.
