Begin by painting the Magus’s robes with a base coat of a vibrant red color like Mephiston Red or Khorne Red. Ensure smooth and even coverage.
- Step 2: Skin Tone
Next, paint the Magus’s skin using a flesh-tone color such as Cadian Fleshtone or Kislev Flesh. Apply a wash of Reikland Fleshshade or Agrax Earthshade to add depth and definition to the facial features.
- Step 3: Details and Accessories
Focus on painting the intricate details and accessories on the Magus, such as the staff, belt, and any jewelry. Use metallic paints like Iron Warriors or Leadbelcher for metallic components and bright colors for any gems or symbols.
- Step 4: Eyes and Symbols
Paint the Magus’s eyes using a contrasting color like White Scar to create a captivating gaze. Add any faction symbols or markings on the robes with the appropriate colors.
- Step 5: Weapon and Tools
For the Magus’s staff and other tools, use metallic paints like Balthasar Gold or Retributor Armor to give them a distinct look.
- Step 6: Basing
Consider basing the Magus to match your army’s theme. You can use textures and colors to create a visually appealing base that complements the model.
- Step 7: Finishing Touches
Add any final touches, like weathering effects or battle damage, to add realism and character to the Magus. You can use techniques like dry brushing or stippling to achieve these effects.
