How to Paint a Glade Guard
Keep your strokes light. (paint brush image by Horticulture from Fotolia.com)

Glade Guards--models of fantasy army units--wear green robes and carry brown bows and arrows. The guards have dark skin and hide their faces. While a traditional Glade Guard colour scheme exists, you can use any colour scheme you like if you want to create a figurine that is personalised rather than a figurine that matches the standard. To keep your Glade Guard recognisable, paint his robe a dark colour and keep his skin earth toned.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Paint the black undercoat of the Glade Guard. Spray the figurine with black undercoat and allow the undercoat to dry.

  2. 2

    Apply brown paint using a thin paintbrush. Paint the figurine's bow, arrow, quiver, gauntlets and leather armour brown.

  3. 3

    Paint the cloak, shirt and hood green using a fine paintbrush. Paint a thin coat, allow it to dry and add a second coat of green.

  4. 4

    Dip your thin paintbrush in tan paint and apply a few strokes of tan paint to the edges of the boots, belt, armour and quiver. Paint a light coat of tan over the entire surface of these items.

  5. 5

    Thin a dark brown paint slightly by mixing it with water at a one-to-one ratio. Apply this paint to the arrow fletching, bow handle and bow tips. Allow the paint to dry.

  6. 6

    Paint the Glade Guard's face with a dark flesh tone.

  7. 7

    Highlight the green areas of the Glade Guard with a three-to-two mixture of pewter green paint and water. Thin the pewter paint and apply it to the green areas.

  8. 8

    Paint the Guard's buckles with a dark silver paint.
