The Blood Angels psykers are formidable combatants that are just as capable as their fellow battle-brothers. With their psychic powers, they can become deadly weapons, capable of draining their enemies’ blood with a single glance or glimpsing fragments of future events. They can even soar above the battlefield on spectral wings of gold, adding an extra element of mobility to their already impressive arsenal.

How to paint the Blood Angels Librarian in Terminator Armour
- Step 1: Prime your model
Apply a thin, even coat of primer to your Librarian model using a spray can or airbrush. This will help the paint adhere better and provide a smooth surface for painting. Use a grey or black primer for a darker, more mysterious look.
- Step 2: Basecoat the armor
Start by basecoating the armor areas with a dark blue paint, such as Ultramarine Blue. Apply the paint evenly, making sure to cover all the desired areas. This will serve as the foundation for the armor’s color.
- Step 3: Highlight the armor
Use a lighter blue shade, like Calgar Blue, to highlight the raised areas of the armor. Apply the paint with a smaller brush, focusing on edges and contours to create depth and definition. This will make the armor pop and add visual interest.
- Step 4: Paint the details
Use a smaller brush to paint the various details on the model. For the Librarian’s helmet, you can use a metallic silver paint like Ironbreaker. If your Librarian has any exposed skin, like the head, you can use Kislev Flesh. Paint the eyes with a bright color like Mephiston Red for a striking contrast.
- Step 5: Add the iconic psychic hood
To paint the psychic hood, start with a dark gray basecoat, such as Mechanicus Standard Grey. Then, apply a lighter gray shade, like Dawnstone, to the raised areas of the hood. This will create a gradient effect, making the hood look more three-dimensional.
- Step 6: Paint the librarian’s accessories
Use different colors to paint the accessories, such as the purity seals and the book carried by the Librarian. For the seals, you can use a parchment color like Ushabti Bone and add some washes, like Agrax Earthshade, to give them an aged appearance. For the book, you can use a mix of browns, such as Rhinox Hide and XV-88, for a weathered look.
- Step 7: Finishing touches
Apply a wash, like Nuln Oil, to the entire model to bring out the details and add depth. This will darken the recesses and create shadows. Once dry, you can go back and touch up any areas that need more highlighting or shading.
- Step 8: Basing
Finally, you can base your Librarian model to complete the look. Use materials like sand, small rocks, and grass tufts to create a realistic and thematic base. You can paint the base with earthy tones or match it to your gaming table’s theme.
