Belial’s weapons are an essential part of the miniature’s look. Paint the Sword of Silence with a base coat of Celestra Grey, followed by a drybrush of Administratum Grey. For the hilt and pommel, use a base coat of Retributor Armour, followed by a wash of Agrax Earthshade. For the storm bolter, use a base coat of Leadbelcher, followed by a drybrush of Ironbreaker.
