Kaldor Draigo is a legendary hero of the Grey Knights, known for his exceptional martial skill and unwavering devotion to the Emperor. He first gained notoriety as a young Battle-Brother, where he was able to defeat the Daemon Prince M’kar the Reborn and banish him back to the Warp. Since then, Draigo has risen through the ranks of the Grey Knights to become their Supreme Grand Master.
However, his victory over M’kar came with a terrible price. Draigo is now cursed to exist within the Warp, the chaotic realm of the Ruinous Powers. Despite this, he has managed to retain his sanity and purity, a testament to his incredible strength of will and unshakeable faith.
This multi-part plastic kit allows you to build Kaldor Draigo, complete with his signature Daemonhammer and ornate power armour. The kit includes various options to customise your model, such as a choice of heads and a banner.

For the armor, sword, and various metal components, employ Leadbelcher. Take your time to apply this base coat evenly, ensuring that all metallic surfaces are adequately covered.
- Step 3: Shading with Nuln Oil
Apply Nuln Oil to the armor and metal parts. This shade will seep into the recesses, creating shadows and enhancing the three-dimensional appearance of these areas. Allow it to dry thoroughly before proceeding.

Highlight the armor and metal parts with Ironbreaker. Concentrate on the edges and raised sections to simulate light catching on these surfaces. This step adds depth and contrast.

Use Retributor Armour to paint the intricate gold details found on the armor, sword, and banner. Pay close attention to ornate designs and symbols, striving for precision.
- Step 6: Shading Gold Details
Enhance the gold details with Reikland Fleshshade. Apply this shade carefully, allowing it to settle into the recesses. It imparts depth and a rich, antique appearance to the gold.

Highlight the gold details using Liberator Gold. Focus on edges and raised surfaces, replicating the effect of light reflecting off these areas. This step brings a radiant sheen to the gold embellishments.

Coat the cape, eyes, and purity seals with Mephiston Red. Take your time to achieve a smooth and even application, ensuring that the red is vibrant and consistent across these areas.

Apply Agrax Earthshade to the cape, eyes, and purity seals. This shade adds depth and dimension to these red areas, creating a sense of realism.
- Step 10: Highlighting Cape, Eyes, and Purity Seals
Highlight the cape, eyes, and purity seals with Evil Sunz Scarlet. Focus on edges and raised details to give them a brighter, eye-catching appearance.

Paint Lord Kaldor Draigo’s exposed skin and any clothing areas with Rakarth Flesh or Kislev Flesh. Ensure a neat and thorough application, especially on the skin for a lifelike complexion.
- Step 12: Shading Skin and Clothing
Apply Druchii Violet to the skin and clothing areas to introduce shading and depth. Concentrate on the recesses and areas where shadows naturally form.
- Step 13: Highlighting Skin and Clothing
Highlight the skin and clothing using Pallid Wych Flesh. This step should emphasize the raised areas and edges, giving the skin a healthy glow and the clothing a textured appearance.
- Step 14: Clothing Details
Complete the painting process by using Ushabti Bone to add any additional details to the clothing, ensuring that they complement the overall color scheme and aesthetic.
