How to paint the Black Templars Sword Brethren
- Step 1: Prepare your materials
Gather your paints, brushes, palette, and water.
Prepare your miniatures by removing any mold lines and cleaning them with soap and water.
Prime your miniatures with a black or gray primer spray to provide a good base for the paint.
- Step 2: Base coat
Apply a base coat of Abaddon Black to the armor, gun casing, and other black areas of the model.
Paint the cloth areas with Celestra Grey, followed by a wash of Nuln Oil.
Use Mephiston Red to paint any red areas, such as the shoulder pads, followed by a wash of Agrax Earthshade.
- Step 3: Detailing
Use Runefang Steel to paint any silver areas, such as the weapons and armor trim.
Paint the gold areas, such as the Aquila and the sword handles, with Retributor Armour, followed by a wash of Reikland Fleshshade.
Add any additional details you desire, such as purity seals, squad markings, or other insignia.
- Step 4: Basing
Glue your miniatures onto their bases.
Apply texture paint, such as Astrogranite Debris, to the base to create a realistic terrain effect.
Drybrush the base with Dawnstone to highlight the texture and create depth.
Paint the rim of the base with Abaddon Black.
- Step 5: Varnishing
Once your miniatures are dry, protect them with a coat of varnish, such as Citadel Munitorum Varnish, to prevent chipping and wear.
