- Step 2: Metal Parts with Leadbelcher
Use Leadbelcher to paint the metal parts of the bike, such as the exhausts. Make these parts gleam with a metallic shine.
- Step 3: Red Details with Khorne Red
Apply Khorne Red to details like the crozius arcanum handle and any other red elements you desire. This adds a bold touch of red to your miniature.
- Step 4: Gold Details with Retributor Armour
Highlight the gold details on both the armor and the bike, including emblems, trims, weapons, and ornaments, with Retributor Armour. This adds a touch of regal splendor.
- Step 5: Painting the Skull Helmet and Parchment Parts with Screaming Skull
Use Screaming Skull to paint the Chaplain’s skull helmet and any parchment parts on the armor and bike, such as purity seals or scrolls. Pay attention to detail to make these elements stand out.
- Step 6: Creating Depth with Nuln Oil
Apply a wash of Nuln Oil over the entire miniature. This wash settles into the recesses, creating depth and shadows, giving your miniature a weathered appearance.
- Step 7: Highlighting the Black Parts with Eshin Grey
With Eshin Grey, highlight the edges and corners of the black parts with thin lines. This step enhances the depth and brings out the intricate details.

- Step 11: Creating a Textured Base
Select a texture paint like Astrogranite Debris or Agrellan Earth to create a textured base for your Chaplain on Bike. Apply it to the base surface and allow it to dry thoroughly.
You can also enhance the base by adding small rocks or grass tufts. This adds realism and dimension to the miniature’s base. Secure them with adhesive.
- Step 12: Varnishing for Protection
To safeguard your intricate work and give your Chaplain on Bike a polished finish, 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 miniature on the tabletop.
