How to paint the Kill Team: Legionaries set
- Step 1: Prepare your Legionaries
Inspect your Legionary models for any imperfections and smooth out rough edges or mold lines using fine-grit sandpaper or a hobby knife. Clean the models with warm, soapy water to remove any residue or oils.
- Step 2: Prime your models
Apply a thin, even coat of primer to your Legionaries. Priming helps the paint adhere better and provides a consistent base color. Use a black primer, such as Citadel’s Chaos Black, for a dark and striking effect.
- Step 3: Basecoat the armor
Choose a base color for your Legionaries armor. Black is a classic choice that exudes a menacing presence. Apply an even layer of black paint to the armor areas using a medium-sized brush. Abaddon Black is a suitable choice for this step.
- Step 4: Paint the details
Now it’s time to focus on the unique details of your Legionaries. Use different colors to bring out specific elements. For example, paint the red cape’s by using Mephiston Red. Apply thin layers to gradually build up the color and ensure smooth coverage. Similarly, use a vibrant green shade like Moot Green to highlight the magical details.Take your time and use a smaller brush for precision.
- Step 5: Wash for shading
Apply a wash, such as Nuln Oil, to the entire model or specific areas to add depth and shading. Dilute the wash with water and carefully apply it to the recessed areas, allowing it to settle and accentuate the details.
- Step 6: Highlight the edges
Using a lighter shade of black or a dark gray, carefully highlight the raised edges and prominent features to add dimension and contrast. Eshin Grey can be used for this step, providing a subtle yet effective highlighting effect.
- Step 7: Paint the face
Focus on the faces of your Legionaries. Use a small brush to paint the eyes, facial features, and hair. Rakarth Flesh is a good base for human skin tones, while Administratum Grey can be used for hair or a mask.
- Step 8: Base the models
Complete your Legionaries by basing them. Apply texture paint or flocking material to the base, and then paint it to match your gaming table or desired theme. Stirland Mud or Astrogranite can create a solid base texture for a grim and dark atmosphere.
- Step 9: Varnish and protect
Once the paint is dry, apply a layer of varnish to protect your finished models. This helps prevent chipping and wear during gameplay. Munitorum Varnish or Ardcoat can provide a protective coating, preserving your hard work.
