How to paint the Chaos Lord set

  1. Step 1: Basecoat the miniature
    Apply a basecoat of black or your desired base color to the Chaos Lord using a suitable primer spray or brush-on primer.Some good options for this include Abaddon Black and Chaos Black Spray.
  2. Step 2: Paint the armor
    Paint the armor plates of the Chaos Lord using metallic paints like Leadbelcher or Iron Warriors. Apply multiple thin coats for smooth coverage and allow each layer to dry before adding the next.
  3. Step 3: Highlight the armor
    Add highlights to the armor by dry brushing a lighter metallic color, such as Runefang Steel or Stormhost Silver, on the raised edges and surfaces to create depth and shine.
  4. Step 4: Paint the details
    Use various colors to paint the details of the Chaos Lord, such as the trim, insignia, and accessories. For example, you can paint the trim using Khorne Red or Evil Sunz Scarlet and the helmet or visor using Abaddon Black or Corvus Black.
  5. Step 5: Highlight the details
    Apply highlights to the details by using a lighter shade of the base color or a contrasting color. For instance, you can highlight the red trim with Wazdakka Red or Wild Rider Red by carefully painting thin lines along the edges.
  6. Step 6: Paint the weapons
    Focus on painting the weapons of the Chaos Lord, such as the plasma pistol and thunder hammer. Use colors that complement the rest of the model, such as Mephiston Red or Khorne Red for the plasma pistol and Leadbelcher or Iron Warriors for the thunder hammer.
  7. Step 7: Add washes
    Apply washes, such as Agrax Earthshade or Nuln Oil, to the recessed areas and crevices of the model to create shading and add depth. Make sure to use a small brush and remove any excess wash to avoid pooling.
  8. Step 8: Paint the base
    Paint the base of the Chaos Lord using colors that match your chosen theme. For example, you can paint it as a barren wasteland with Stirland Mud or a war-torn battlefield with Astrogranite Debris.
  9. Step 9: Apply a varnish
    Protect your painted Chaos Lord by applying a varnish, such as a matte or gloss varnish, to seal the paintwork and provide durability. This step will also help to unify the overall appearance of the model.
  10. Step 10: Add finishing touches
    To complete the painting process, add any final touches like additional highlights, weathering effects, or decals to enhance the overall look of the Chaos Lord.
