- Step 1: Prepare Your Work Area
Find a well-lit and well-ventilated area to work in. Lay down a protective surface, such as newspaper or a drop cloth, to prevent any paint spills or stains.
- Step 2: Prime Your Miniature
Shake the primer can well and spray a thin, even coat onto the Vexilus Praetor miniature. Use a primer color that suits your desired final look. For example, you can use White Scar for a brighter appearance or Chaos Black for a darker and more dramatic look. Let the primer dry completely.

- Step 4: Layering and Highlighting
Create depth and highlights by applying lighter or darker shades to specific areas. For instance, you can use Gehenna’s Gold to highlight the edges and raised details of the armor. Use a smaller brush and apply the paint with controlled strokes.
- Step 5: Wash
Apply a wash, such as Agrax Earthshade, to recessed areas and crevices of the miniature. This will add depth and shadows to the model, enhancing its details and giving it a more realistic look.
- Step 6: Detailing
Use a fine brush to paint smaller details, such as the face, symbols, and intricate designs. Take your time and use steady hands to ensure accuracy. Use appropriate colors like Retributor Armor for gold accents and Evil Sunz Scarlet for the cape’s trim.

Finish the miniature by painting the base. Apply texture paint or glue sand and paint it accordingly. Add additional elements like rocks or grass tufts to enhance the overall look.
