How to paint Baal Predator
- Step 1: Prime your miniature
Before you start painting, make sure to prime your miniature with a base coat. Use a spray can of white or black primer to create a smooth, even base for your paints to adhere to.
- Step 2: Paint the base colors
Start by painting the base colors of your Baal Predator. A good beginner-friendly approach is to use a simple 3-color scheme: red, black, and gold. For the red armor, you can use Citadel’s Mephiston Red. For the black details like its tracks or guns, you can use Abaddon Black. And for some gold details or iconography, you can use Retributor Armor.
- Step 3: Add shading and highlights
Once you’ve painted the base colors, it’s time to add some shading and highlights to give your Baal Predator more depth and detail. Use a darker shade of the same color to add shading in recessed areas, and a lighter shade or a metallic color to add highlights on raised areas. For example, you can use Nuln Oil to shade the black areas and highlight with Eshin Grey or Stormvermin Fur. For the gold areas, use Reikland Fleshshade to shade and highlight with Liberator Gold.
- Step 4: Details and weathering
Next, add details to your Baal Predator, such as Blood Angel icons, tank tracks, and other details. Use a small brush to carefully paint these details, and don’t be afraid to use contrasting colors for visual interest. For weathering effects, you can use a dry brush technique to add a bit of wear and tear to your Baal Predator. For example, you can use Typhus Corrosion and Ryza Rust to create rust and corrosion effects.
- Step 5: Finish with a protective coat
Once you’re happy with your painting, finish off with a protective coat of varnish to keep your Baal Predator looking great for years to come. Citadel’s Ardcoat will give a glossy finish and will protect the paintjob.
