How to paint the XV95 Ghostkeel Battlesuit set

  1. Step 1: Base Coat
    Begin by applying a base coat of White Scar paint to the XV95 Ghostkeel Battlesuit’s armor. Use a medium-sized brush and carefully cover the armor plates with the white paint. Ensure even coverage and a smooth finish.
  2. Step 2: Base Coat
    Next, paint the smaller details of the battlesuit with Abaddon Black paint. Focus on areas like joints, thrusters, and any other intricate parts. Use a fine brush for precise application.
  3. Step 3: Red Accent
    Now, add a touch of Mephiston Red paint to the fusion collider, a prominent weapon on the battlesuit. Paint the barrel and any other red accents to make it stand out.
  4. Step 4: Metallics
    Use a metallic paint, such as Runefang Steel or Leadbelcher, to paint the fusion blasters and the cyclic ion raker. This will give them a realistic metallic appearance.
  5. Step 5: Details
    Paint the flamers with an orange or yellow paint, such as Jokaero Orange or Averland Sunset, and the stealth drone projectors with a dark grey paint, like Mechanicus Standard Grey.
  6. Step 6: Pilot’s Head
    For added realism and customization, paint the pilot’s head with the desired skin tone and facial features using appropriate flesh tone paints. You can use The Fang for this, for a classic T’au look, and once you are done, shade his head with Drakenhof Nightshade.
  7. Step 7: Weathering
    To achieve a weathered look, apply Typhus Corrosion paint to certain areas of the battlesuit, like joints and edges. This will give it a battle-worn appearance.
  8. Step 8: Final Touches
    Inspect your XV95 Ghostkeel Battlesuit for any additional touch-ups or details you’d like to add. You can incorporate extra weathering effects, battle damage, or insignias to make it unique.
  9. Step 9: Varnish for Protection
    To protect your masterpiece and give it a professional finish, apply a matte or satin varnish like Munitorum Varnish. This will protect the paint job and enhance the battlesuit’s appearance.
