How to paint the Primaris Redemptor Dreadnought
- Step 1: Priming – A Solid Start
Commence by priming your Primaris Redemptor Dreadnought with Chaos Black primer. This essential step provides a solid base for your paint to adhere effectively.
- Step 2: Armor Panels – Mighty Blue
For the armor panels, pick up Macragge Blue. This bold blue is the base color for your Dreadnought’s armor. Apply it evenly across all the armor sections.
- Step 3: Shading – Adding Depth
To create depth on the armor, apply a shade. You can choose a shade like Nuln Oil. Concentrate on the recessed areas, allowing shadows to form naturally. This shading technique adds a touch of realism.
- Step 4: Layering the Armor – Brighter Blues
Now, layer the armor with a brighter blue like Altdorf Guard Blue. Focus on the raised areas and edges, leaving the darker blue in the recesses. Gradually layer for a vibrant and dimensional appearance.
- Step 5: Emblems – Golden Details
Identify the emblems on your Dreadnought, and paint them with Retributor Armour. This lustrous gold adds an elegant touch to your model.
- Step 6: Weapons – Deep Black
For the weapons, like the heavy Gatling cannon or the onslaught gatling cannon, choose Abaddon Black as your base coat. Ensure even application and precision.
- Step 7: Layering the Weapons – Adding Dimension
Layer these black weapon parts with Eshin Grey. Focus on edges and raised areas. This layering technique adds dimension and highlights.
- Step 8: Parchments – Ancient Scrolls
The parchments on the Dreadnought can be painted with Screaming Skull. This off-white color creates a weathered and aged effect, perfect for ancient scrolls.
- Step 9: Energy Sources – A Glowing Touch
For the energy sources like plasma coils, choose a vibrant glowing blue color. For example, you can use a mix of Baharroth Blue and White Scar. This creates a dynamic and electrifying look.
- Step 10: Texture Paints – Creating Realism
Enhance the base of your Dreadnought with textured paints. Consider using Martian Ironearth and Agrellan Badland for a realistic terrain-like effect. This adds depth and immersion to the model’s base.
- Step 11: Varnish – Protect and Shine
To protect your meticulously painted Primaris Redemptor Dreadnought and give it a polished finish, apply Ardcoat Varnish. This step not only safeguards your work but also enhances specific areas, making them shine.
