How to paint the Vexilus Praetor Set
- Step 1: Prime the Model
Start by applying a thin, even coat of Chaos Black spray primer to the Vexilus Praetor. This will provide a smooth surface for the paint to adhere to.
- Step 2: Base Colors
Paint the armor with Retributor Armour, covering all the metallic parts of the model. Use a fine brush to ensure precision and even coverage. For the areas that will be black, such as the cloak, the weapon handles, and any other desired black areas, use Abaddon Black.
- Step 3: Detailing
Take your time to highlight the raised edges and details on the armor using Liberator Gold. This will give the model a shiny appearance and add depth to the metallic surfaces. Use a fine brush and steady hand for accurate application. For the weapon blades and other metallic details, apply Runefang Steel for a polished look.
- Step 4: Cloak and Vexilla
Paint the cloak and Vexilla with Mephiston Red, ensuring smooth and even coverage. This vibrant color will make these elements stand out on the model. Use thin layers and multiple coats if necessary to achieve the desired intensity of color.
- Step 5: Additional Details
Add any additional details and highlights to the model as desired. This could include painting the face, eyes, and other smaller features using appropriate colors such as Cadian Fleshtone for the skin and appropriate shades for the eyes.
- Step 6: Varnish and Basing
Once the paint is fully dry, apply a coat of varnish to protect the model and give it a finished look. Use a matte or gloss varnish according to your preference. Finally, base the model using your preferred method, whether it’s painting the base or using basing materials like sand or grass tufts.
