How to paint the Eliminators set
- Step 1: Base Coat
Start by painting the Eliminators’ armor in a solid blue color. You can use Ultramarine Blue or a similar blue shade to achieve the base coat.
- Step 2: Gold and White Details
Next, add the gold and white details to the armor. Use a metallic gold paint like Retributor Armour for the decorative elements, such as chapter symbols and squad markings. For the white details, use White Scar and focus on the edges and raised areas to create highlights.
- Step 3: Black and Grey Weapons
Paint the weapons, weapon details, and belts in black and grey colors. For a realistic metallic appearance, you can use Leadbelcher paint for the gun barrels and other metallic parts.
- Step 4: Exposed Head
For the Eliminator with an exposed head, paint it in a flesh tone such as Cadian Fleshtone or another suitable color to represent human skin.
- Step 5: Helmet Lenses
For the remaining Eliminators with helmets, paint their lenses in with Mephiston Red. This will create a striking contrast against the blue armor and make them look fierce.
- Step 6: Adding Depth (Optional)
To add depth and realism to the miniatures, consider using shading techniques. Apply a shade like Nuln Oil to the recesses of the armor and weapons. This will make the details pop and give the models a more dynamic appearance.
- Step 7: Protect Your Masterpieces
Now that your Eliminators are fully painted and looking fantastic, it’s time to protect your hard work. Apply a layer of varnish to seal and safeguard the paint job. Varnishing helps prevent chipping, fading, and general wear and tear during gameplay.
