How to paint the Triarch Praetorians set
- Step 1: Base Colors
Begin by painting the main body of the Triarch Praetorians with a metallic paint, like Runefang Steel. Apply it to the skeletal frame, armor, and segmented loincloths.
- Step 2: Iconic Details
Focus on the intricate iconography and glyphs. Use a contrasting color, such as Retributor Armour, to highlight these symbols. Apply it to the armor and other surfaces that feature these details.
- Step 3: Loincloths and Accessories
Paint the segmented loincloths and any other accessories, like rods or weaponry. Choose a color that complements the main metallic shade. For instance, you can use a dark color like Abaddon Black for the loincloths or a different metallic tone for the accessories.
- Step 4: Rod of Covenant
Paint the rod of covenant that the Triarch Praetorians carry. Use a color that stands out, such as a bright metallic like Stormhost Silver or a contrasting hue. This will make the rod a focal point of the model.
- Step 5: Optional Upgrades
If your models have voidblades and particle casters, paint them accordingly. Choose colors that match the rest of the model but add unique touches, like a brighter metallic like Liberator Gold or a different accent color.
- Step 6: Green Details
Paint any green details such as the blades or eyes. For a glowing effect, you can use Tesseract Glow or Moot Green. Apply it carefully to the desired areas, like the weapon blades or eye sockets.
- Step 7: Shading and Depth
Apply a wash, such as Nuln Oil, to add shading and depth. Brush it over the metallic parts, glyphs, and other detailed areas.
- Step 8: Highlights
Add highlights to create dimension. Use a lighter metallic color like Ironbreaker on edges and raised surfaces. This will make the model’s details pop.
- Step 9: Final Touches
Add any additional details you’d like, such as small symbols or patterns on the armor. Use a fine brush and a contrasting color to make them stand out.
- Step 10: Preserve Your Work
After your painting is complete, it’s essential to protect it. Apply a protective varnish to safeguard your Triarch Praetorians from wear and tear. A recommended option is the Citadel’s Ardcoat varnish, which provides a clear protective layer while enhancing the model’s overall finish.
