Meet the spiritual leaders of Space Marine Chapters – the awe-inspiring warrior priests known as Chaplains. These revered figures are responsible for administering rites, preserving rituals, and performing ancient ceremonies that are crucial to the success of a Space Marine Chapter. From initiations to vindications and redemption, their duties are just as important as a Chapter’s roll of honour or skill at arms.
Every Space Marine Chapter has its own Chaplain, who is a leader in both devotions and combat. In fact, they are second only to the company Captain in rank. And now, you can add a Primaris Chaplain to your collection with this multi-part plastic kit.
The Primaris Chaplain comes equipped with iconic jet-black Mk X power armor featuring unique greaves. He wields his absolver bolt pistol and crozius arcanum with fierce determination, ready to take on any enemy. His hooded cassock lends him an air of sinister intensity, with spikes, chains, skulls, and purity seals adorning his attire. His helmet features a skull design, and the chestplate of his armor is modified to portray an exposed ribcage – a constant reminder of the mortality that his enemies face.
But that’s not all – his backpack also boasts an attached iron halo with 12 points, representing the High Lords of Terra. As you assemble this kit, you’ll appreciate the attention to detail and quality of the materials and once completed, your Primaris Chaplain will be a stunning addition to your collection, ready to lead your Space Marine forces into battle.

How to paint the Primaris Chaplain
- Step 1: Black Armor and cloth
Use Abaddon Black to paint the main armor of the Chaplain. Apply the paint evenly to achieve a solid black finish. For the clothing elements, belts and pouches, you can use Rhinox Hide.
- Step 2: Red Details
Paint the eyes, the crozius arcanum handle and the absolver bolt pistol with Khorne Red. This will give these details a striking red appearance.
- Step 3: Metal Parts
Apply Leadbelcher to the metal parts of the armor, the crozius arcanum, the rosarius and the absolver bolt pistol. Ensure the metallic areas stand out with a shiny silver finish.
- Step 4: Gold Details
Highlight the gold details of the armor, such as ornaments, with Retributor Armour. This adds a regal touch to the Chaplain’s attire.
- Step 5: Parchment Parts
Use Screaming Skull to paint the parchment parts of the armor, including the skull head, the purity seals, or scrolls. Pay attention to detail to make these elements look authentic.
- Step 6: Creating Depth
Apply a wash of Nuln Oil over the entire miniature. This wash settles into the recesses, creating depth and shadows, providing a weathered appearance.
- Step 7: Highlighting the Black Armor
Use Eshin Grey to highlight the edges and corners of the black armor with thin lines. This step enhances the depth and brings out the armor’s details.
- Step 8: Highlighting the Metal Parts
Make the metal parts shine by using Stormhost Silver to highlight the edges and corners with thin lines. This creates a metallic gleam.
- Step 9: Highlighting the Gold Details
To make the gold details stand out even more, use Liberator Gold to highlight the edges and corners. This adds a brilliant sheen.
- Step 10: Highlighting the Parchment Parts
Use Ushabti Bone to highlight the edges and corners of the parchment parts with thin lines. This adds authenticity to the parchments.
- Step 11: Adding Texture to the Base
Select a texture paint like Astrogranite Debris or Stirland Mud to create a textured base. Apply it to the base surface and let it dry thoroughly.
- Step 12: Varnishing for Protection
To safeguard your work, apply Ardcoat varnish over the entire miniature. This protective coat will preserve your paint job and give it a glossy finish. Allow it to dry completely before showcasing your Primaris Chaplain on the tabletop.
