He is capable of manipulating the colossal energies of the warp to his will, causing the air around him to crackle with power. His ornate Nemesis Daemon hammer, the Malleus Argyrum, is a formidable weapon that can emit purifying flames, reducing his enemies flesh, bone, and armor to pillars of ash.
With a mere thought, Voldus can halt heretic war engines by severing their twisted machine spirits from their chassis. His psychic prowess can also constrict reality, crushing the helms of his enemies with an invisible force. Alternatively, Voldus can sharpen the minds of his fellow Grey Knights, allowing them to channel their reserves and bring down even the largest of Daemons with powerful strikes.
The Grand Master Voldus miniature is a stunning representation of this powerful leader. The model is brimming with intricate details, befitting of his reputation and power. Voldus wears Terminator armor adorned with sacred inscriptions, chains, skulls, and magical tomes. His legendary hammer, standing as tall as he does, is covered in purity seals and cabling, indicating its use as a conduit for his psychic energies. Voldus also wields a wrist-mounted storm bolter on his left arm, making him a formidable opponent in battle.

How to paint the Grand Master Voldus
- Step 1: Prime Your Miniature with Citadel Chaos Black Primer
Begin by preparing your Grand Master Voldus miniature for painting by applying Citadel Chaos Black Primer. This step ensures that the paint adheres well to the model’s surface, providing a solid foundation for your paintwork. Be sure to apply the primer evenly and allow it to dry thoroughly.
- Step 2: Base Coat the Armor with Leadbelcher
Apply a base coat of Leadbelcher to the entirety of Voldus’s intricate armor. Use smooth, even strokes to ensure complete coverage. This metallic hue serves as the foundation for the armor’s metallic appearance.
- Step 3: Shade to Create Depth with Drakenhof Nightshade
To enhance the depth and shadows of the armor, use Drakenhof Nightshade as a shading wash. Apply this shade selectively, concentrating on the recesses and crevices of the armor. This technique adds a sense of dimension to the model.
- Step 4: Layer to Highlight with Ironbreaker
For highlighting, employ Ironbreaker to accentuate the raised surfaces and edges of Voldus’s armor. By carefully layering this metallic shade, you’ll create a striking contrast, giving the armor a shiny, polished appearance.
- Step 5: Add a Brilliant Shine with Stormhost Silver
To achieve a captivating shine, apply Stormhost Silver to the edges of the armor. This final highlight step gives the armor a gleaming finish, enhancing its visual impact on the battlefield.
- Step 6: Detail the Armor with Retributor Armour
Utilize Retributor Armour to add intricate details to the armor, such as trims, skulls, or iconography. This extra layer of detail brings out the intricacies of the armor and contributes to its overall complexity.
- Step 7: Darken the Guns with Abaddon Black
To create a sleek and menacing appearance for Voldus’s weaponry, paint the guns and any other weapon details with Abaddon Black. This step adds a stark contrast to the metallic armor.
- Step 8: Bring Exposed Flesh to Life
Paint the exposed flesh, such as his head, with Kislev Flesh. This step adds a touch of realism to the model.
- Step 9: Create Contrast with Clothing
For Voldus’s clothing, blend a mixture of Mephiston Red and White Scar. Use White Scar for the exterior of the cape, creating a stark contrast with the Mephiston Red interior. This contrast makes the clothing visually captivating.
- Step 10: Craft a Textured Base with Citadel Texture Paints
Enhance the overall presentation of your miniature by crafting a textured base using Citadel Texture Paints. Select a paint that complements your desired theme, such as Astrogranite Debris for a rocky or rugged appearance.
- Step 11: Preserve and Finish with Munitorum Varnish
To protect your painstakingly painted miniature and achieve a professional finish, apply a coat of Munitorum Varnish. This step not only adds durability but also provides a satin-matte finish, reducing unwanted glare.
