How to paint the Black Templars Castellan
- Step 1: Assemble the miniature
Follow the instructions included in the kit to assemble the Castellan miniature using Citadel Plastic Glue.
- Step 2: Prime the miniature
Apply a thin, even coat of Abaddon Black paint to the entire miniature using a small brush or spray can. This will create a base layer for the rest of the paint to adhere to.
- Step 3: Paint the metallic areas
Using a small brush, paint the metallic areas of the miniature with Leadbelcher paint. This includes the power axe, bolter, and other small details. For a more worn look, you can use Nuln Oil to shade the metallic areas.
- Step 4: Paint the gold areas
Next, use Retributor Armour paint to cover the gold areas of the miniature, such as the chest eagle, skull decorations, and sword hilt. You can use Agrax Earthshade to shade these areas for more depth.
- Step 5: Paint the red areas
Using Mephiston Red paint, carefully paint the shoulder pauldrons and other red details on the miniature. For a darker shade, you can use Nuln Oil to shade the red areas.
- Step 6: Highlight the details
Using a small brush and Ulthuan Grey paint, highlight the edges of the metallic areas and the red details. This will make the miniature pop and add depth to the overall look.
- Step 7: Base the miniature
Finally, base the miniature by painting the base with Abaddon Black and dry brushing with Ulthuan Grey to add texture.
