First Steps

  1. Prime Chaos Black .
  2. Spray with Mephiston Red - this can be partially zenithal if wanted, but should be fairly thorough as the red is the main colour of the cloth. Sadly the in-pot version is a brighter colour so mistakes later will be harder to clean up neatly than ideal.
  3. Basecoat the armour with Retributor Armour .
  4. Shade the entire model with Druchii Violet .


  1. Paint in the belts, eye-hole, and leatherwork such as gloves and boot tops in Black Templar .
  2. Paint in any steel such as the blades of weapons in Leadbelcher .
  3. Apply Dryad Bark to any wooden sections such as hafts of weapons.
  4. Paint the boots in Wyldwood .
