Among the greatest warrior-mystics in the galaxy are the Librarians – a rare breed of Space Marines who combine their martial prowess with powerful psychic abilities on the battlefield. With their exceptional mental powers, Librarians can throw energy bolts, project force-shields, and even redirect bullets to overcome their foes.
If you’re a fan of the Librarian’s unique abilities, you’ll be thrilled to know that this multi-part plastic kit contains everything you need to assemble your own Librarian for your army. With 9 components included in the set, you’ll have plenty of options to customize your model to suit your preferences.
The Librarian is armed with a force staff, a weapon that channels the power of the Warp to unleash devastating blows against their enemies. The staff is intricately detailed, featuring ornate designs and symbols that reflect the Librarian’s status as a master of psychic energies.
In addition to the Librarian himself, the kit also includes an optional Warrior Cherub – a tiny robotic drone that accompanies the Librarian into battle. The Cherub can be used to carry messages or even act as a decoy to confuse the enemy.

How to paint the Space Marine Librarian
- Step 1: Priming
Start by applying a black primer to the entire miniature. Ensure even coverage, as this will provide a solid base for the subsequent paint layers.
- Step 2: Base Coat
Using Kantor Blue, paint the main armor sections of the Space Marine Librarian, excluding the shoulder pads and the chest eagle. Apply smooth and even coats to achieve good color saturation.
- Step 3: Metal Details
Use Leadbelcher to paint the metal parts of the armor, as well as the bolt pistol and the force staff. Ensure that you paint these details with precision, leaving no spots uncovered.
- Step 4: Gold Accents
Apply Retributor Armour to the gold details on the armor, bolt pistol, and force staff. This will make these elements stand out nicely against the blue and black.
- Step 5: Parchment Parts
Use Screaming Skull to paint the parchment sections of the armor and the force staff. This color adds contrast to the model.
- Step 6: Creating Depth
Apply Nuln Oil wash over the entire miniature. This will help create depth and shadows by settling into recesses and crevices. Be careful not to overdo it; a moderate amount should suffice.
- Step 7: Highlighting Blue
Highlight the blue armor by adding thin lines along the edges and corners using Alaitoc Blue. This step adds definition to the armor plates.
- Step 8: Highlighting Black
Highlight the black parts of the model with Eshin Grey. Concentrate on the edges and corners to make these areas pop.
- Step 9: Highlighting Metal
Use Stormhost Silver to highlight the metal parts of the armor, bolt pistol, and force staff. This adds a reflective shine to these elements.
- Step 10: Highlighting Gold
Highlight the gold details with Liberator Gold. Apply thin lines along the edges to emphasize the shine of the gold.
- Step 11: Highlighting Parchment
Complete the model by highlighting the parchment parts with Ushabti Bone. Focus on the edges to give them a weathered look.
- Step 12: Final Touches
For the finishing touches, use White Scar to paint the eyes and any lightning effects on the force staff. This adds character to your Space Marine Librarian.
