The Aegis Defence Lines are versatile barricades that can be quickly built and deployed for creating defensive perimeters, making them an ideal choice for establishing temporary structures on the battlefield. This multipart plastic kit builds two Aegis Defence Lines, each comprising of six barricade sections, a firing platform, connecting pillars, and end sections that can be assembled and reconfigured according to your requirements. The kit’s modular design allows you to rearrange each component, creating an unbroken wall to keep off foes of any size. The core platform can be built with a choice of two different barriers, including one with a distinct “broken” appearance, giving you the flexibility to customize your battlefield defences to suit your preferences. A nice fortification for your Astra Militarum army!

How to paint the Aegis Defence Line Set

  1. Step 1: Priming – A Solid Foundation
    Begin by priming your Aegis Defence Line with Chaos Black spray. This provides a strong base for the subsequent layers of paint and ensures a consistent finish.
  2. Step 2: Wall Panels – Sturdy Protection
    Paint the wall panels of the Aegis Defence Line with Mechanicus Standard Grey. This will be the base color for the walls. Afterward, apply a shade of Nuln Oil to add depth and shading. Once the shade is dry, layer the walls with Dawnstone, followed by Administratum Grey to create a weathered and battle-worn appearance.
  3. Step 3: Frame – Metallic Structure
    Paint the frame of the Aegis Defence Line with Balthasar Gold. To enhance the metallic look, shade the frame with Agrax Earthshade, focusing on the recessed areas to create shadows and depth.
  4. Step 4: Cables – Vital Connections
    The cables on the Aegis Defence Line should be painted with Mephiston Red. Ensure you apply the paint evenly to make these vital connections stand out.
  5. Step 5: Varnishing – Protect and Finish
    To protect your skillfully painted Aegis Defence Line and give it a finished appearance, apply a varnish. Munitorum Varnish Spray is suitable for this purpose. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully when using the varnish spray.
