Introducing the Exalted Sorcerers – enigmatic practitioners of the arcane arts, whose twisted nature and profound knowledge of spells allow them to manipulate reality itself. These sorcerers, with their esoteric mastery, have traversed the galaxy for millennia. While war may be viewed as a crude diversion by these warrior-mystics, their immense powers come to the fore when the tumult of battle erupts. Witness as their adversaries are torn asunder by devastating barrages of magic, their bodies contorted and warped, akin to the unfortunate Chaos Spawn.

How to paint the Exalted Sorcerers set
- Step 1: Assemble the Model
Carefully assemble the Exalted Sorcerers using plastic glue as per the provided instructions. Ensure all the parts fit securely together.
- Step 2: Prime the Model
Apply a thin, even coat of primer to the model. This helps the paint adhere better and provides a smooth surface to work on. Use a light gray or white primer for accurate color representation.
- Step 3: Basecoat the Armor
Begin by applying a basecoat of Thousand Sons Blue to the armor. Apply the basecoat using a brush, making sure to cover all the armor sections.
- Step 4: Layer the Armor
Once the basecoat is dry, add depth and dimension to the armor by layering. Use a lighter shade of blue, like Baharroth Blue, and carefully apply thin layers to the raised areas. This creates highlights and brings out the metallic sheen.
- Step 5: Paint the Details
Focus on painting the details of the model, such as the sorcerers robes, weapons, and accessories. Use different colors to make them stand out. For example, paint the robes with contrasting colors like Wild Rider Red or Retributor Armor for gold accents. Use a small brush for precision.
- Step 6: Wash the Model
Apply a wash to the entire model to add depth and shading. Use a wash specifically designed for blue colors, such as Drakenhof Nightshade. Gently brush it over the areas where shadows naturally occur, such as recesses and crevices. The wash settles into these areas, creating realistic shadows.
- Step 7: Highlight the Model
To further enhance the details, highlight the edges and prominent features of the model. Use a lighter shade of blue, like Temple Guard Blue or Lothern Blue, and gently brush it along the edges to create a subtle pop and add definition.
- Step 8: Finishing Touches
Add the finishing touches to the model. Use additional colors for gemstones, eyes, or any intricate details you wish to highlight. Consider using colors like Spiritstone Red or Yriel Yellow to make these elements stand out. Don’t forget to paint the base to complement the model.
- Step 9: Varnish the Model
Once the paint is dry, protect your work by applying a coat of varnish. This helps prevent chipping and damage during gameplay. Use a matte varnish for a natural finish or a gloss varnish for a shiny appearance. Follow the instructions on the varnish bottle for best results.
