How to paint the Heavy Intercessors set
- Step 1: Paint the Armor and Helmets
To begin, paint the armor and helmets of your Heavy Intercessors with Macragge Blue. This vibrant blue serves as the base color for their protective gear.
- Step 2: Add Depth with Nuln Oil
Enhance the depth and definition of the armor and helmets by applying Nuln Oil as a shade. Concentrate on the recesses and crevices to emphasize the contours of the armor.
- Step 3: Highlight with Calgar Blue
For highlighting, employ Calgar Blue on the raised areas of the armor. This step introduces a sense of dimension and luminosity to the blue color.
- Step 4: Final Highlight with Fenrisian Grey
Apply Fenrisian Grey to the very edges of the armor and helmets. This subtle final highlight imitates the effect of light gently catching the edges, adding an extra layer of realism.
- Step 5: Paint Eye Lenses or Exposed Heads
If your Heavy Intercessors wear helmets, paint their eye lenses with the striking Mephiston Red. This creates a visually arresting contrast. For those without helmets, use Cadian Fleshtone to paint their heads, and then apply a shade like Reikland Fleshshade for depth.
- Step 6: Detail the Gold Accents
The armor boasts intricate gold details; embellish these with Retributor Armour. Then, enhance their depth with a shade of Reikland Fleshshade.
- Step 7: Layer with Auric Armour Gold
Layer the gold details on the armor using Auric Armour Gold. This layer adds depth and richness to the gold, making it stand out brilliantly.
- Step 8: Highlight with Liberator Gold
For the final touch on the gold accents, meticulously apply Liberator Gold to the edges and prominent areas. This achieves a captivating shine, simulating the way light interacts with gold.
- Step 9: Paint Weapons
Cover the weapons of your Heavy Intercessors with Abaddon Black. To layer these weapons with an authentic appearance, utilize Leadbelcher for metallic elements and appropriate colors for any additional details.
- Step 10: Paint Belts and Pouches with Mournfang Brown
Distinguish the belts and pouches from the armor by painting them with Mournfang Brown, a rich and earthy paint. This ensures that these functional elements stand out clearly from the rest of the model.
- Step 11: Apply Space Marine Transfers
Apply your Space Marine transfers that are included in the kit. These transfers can add intricate details and chapter insignias.
- Step 12: Enhance the Bases with Citadel Texture Paints
To elevate the overall presentation of your miniatures, craft textured bases using Texture Paints like Astrogranite Debris or Stirland Mud. These choices will give your bases a realistic texture and enhance the thematic depth of your models.
- Step 13: Varnish for Protection
To safeguard your meticulously painted miniatures and provide a polished finish, apply a protective layer of Munitorum Varnish. This not only boosts their durability but also imparts a professional satin-matte finish.
