Within the intricate tapestry of the Genestealer Cults, the Sanctuses emerge as favored blades, handpicked by their Patriarch to execute the crucial task of eliminating any who dare challenge the cultists’ journey toward glory. Masters of stealth, they glide like shadows into heavily fortified compounds, stealthily tracking down their targets and executing them with unforgiving accuracy.

Your Sanctus can be armed with either a silencer sniper rifle or a lethal Sanctus bio-dagger. The former is particularly effective against psykers, striking them down from a distance with precision. Alternatively, the bio-dagger transforms the Sanctus into a ferocious close-combat combatant, leaving a trail of devastation in their wake (do not do this though, use the sniper :D). With these versatile options(the sniper), the Sanctus becomes a strategic asset in shaping the outcome of battles in your favor.

What’s in the Sanctus box

  • x10 plastic components that make one Sanctus miniature. We suggest you build him with the Sniper as he is a far bigger threat with that weapon.
  • x1 Citadel 32mm round base.

How to paint the Sanctus set

  1. Step 1: Dark Cape and Boots
    Begin by painting the Sanctus’s cape and boots with the deep and rich Abaddon Black. This establishes a striking contrast against the model’s other features, setting the tone for the rest of the painting process.
  2. Step 2: Vibrant Blue Pants
    Shift your focus to the pants, applying the vibrant Calgar Blue. This shade adds a splash of dynamic color to the model, creating an eye-catching focal point.
  3. Step 3: Subtle Blue-Grey Shirt
    With Dawnstone, paint the shirt to achieve a harmonious balance between the vibrant blue pants and the darker cape and boots. This subtle blue-grey hue adds depth and complexity to the Sanctus’s attire.
  4. Step 4: Light Skin Tone
    Bring life to the character by using Kislev Flesh to paint the skin areas. This light skin tone complements the overall color palette while providing a natural and realistic appearance.
  5. Step 5: Luminous Goggles
    Shift your attention to the goggles, infusing them with a radiant Flash Gitz Yellow. Adding a delicate silver frame emphasizes their presence, making them a focal point on the model.
  6. Step 6: Details
    Paint the enigmatic Genestealer that hugs the bar with Genestealer Purple. Once you are done, you can paint the bar itself with a metallic color, like Ironbreaker.
  7. Step 7: Shading for Depth
    Utilize Nuln Oil to shade the black cape, boots, and clothing. Applying this shade to the recesses enhances the model’s three-dimensional quality, elevating its overall realism.
  8. Step 8: Subtle Highlights
    Highlight the black areas using Eshin Grey, focusing on the edges and prominent sections. Similarly, apply Altdorf Guard Blue to the blue clothing to create a sense of depth and texture.
  9. Step 9: Final Touches
    As you approach the final stages, carefully inspect your work. Utilize a fine brush to refine details, ensuring a polished and professional appearance. Make any necessary touch-ups to guarantee that your Sanctus is visually stunning from every angle.
