A Weekend With Angel: How To Paint Infinity Kum Riders Part Three

January 18, 2015 by crew

We’re back for more from this weekend tutorial showing off how to paint the Infinity Kum Rider thanks to Angel Giraldez. This time he’s going into more detail on the tattoos and bringing the entire miniature to life with some base work too!

Components Used

Don’t forget throughout all of this he’s been working with Acrylicos Vallejo paints for both his Airbrush and general brush work.

You can catch up on Part One and Part Two here and follow it from the very beginning!

Part 3-30

Part 3-32

32) I then began painting the trousers with a few different colour mixes. The base colour is Chocolate Brown and Military Green with a further two lighter shades being done with Russian Uniform WWII and Sunny Skintone. The final shade was done with Black and Military Green.

Part 3-34

34) …once again, more work on the trousers.

Part 3-35

35) I then started painting the first highlight on the wheels with Dark Grey.

Part 3-36

36) The next step was to work on the base and I painted that with a start on the base colour using Cavalry Brown and Field Drab followed by the first lighter stage being German Camouflage and Orange Ochre. The second lighter stage was with Dark Sand with a final range of tones using the pigment of Dark Red Ochre.

Finished Kum Rider

37) This is what you can achieve! As you can see through a mixture of various brush work and airbrushing you can make 28mm miniatures pop and just as detailed as their 54mm and 75mm counterparts.

Here’s a closer look at some of the details on the Kum Rider as a finished product…

I think you’ll agree that this is quite the top notch paint job and hopefully this tutorial will give you some tips and hints for painting your own Kum Rider and then taking these techniques to other models as well.

Will you be attempting to paint up your own Kum Riders like this?
