Balor Brown Paint Review

Balor Brown is a base coat paint from the Citadel Colour range, designed for miniature painting. It is an acrylic paint with a matt finish, formulated with pigments that provide excellent coverage and a natural foundation for layering other colours. This paint is perfect for beginners as it is easy to work with and provides a great starting point for building up a color palette on miniatures. Its pigments blend well together and can be used to create a variety of natural, earthy tones that evokes the image of dry, parched soil and can be used to create a dirty and weathered look on miniatures.

What Xenos Armies to paint with Balor Brown

  • Necrons – The Necrons are a faction of robotic, undead warriors in the Warhammer 40K universe. Balor Brown is a great base coat paint for this army as it can be used to create a weathered, battle-worn look on the Necron’s ancient metallic armor. It can also be used to create a variety of earth tones on the Necron’s machinery and vehicles.
  • Tyranids – The Tyranids are a faction of alien creatures in the Warhammer 40K universe. Balor Brown is a great base coat paint for this army as it can be used to create a natural, organic look on the Tyranid’s exoskeletons and carapaces. It can also be used as a base for creating different shades of brown and beige for the camouflage of the Tyranid’s creatures.
  • Genestealer Cults – The Genestealer Cults are a faction of human-alien hybrids, and Balor Brown can be used to paint the gritty and dirty look of the faction’s vehicles, equipment and troops. This paint can be used to create a rusty and weathered look on the metal surfaces and can also be used to paint the fleshy parts of the creatures to create a dirty and diseased look.

I have chosen these armies specifically as they all have a great deal of machinery, armor and creatures that would benefit from the natural earthy tones that can be achieved with Balor Brown, and it can be used as a foundation for layering other colors to achieve the desired look. It’s a versatile paint that can be used to create a variety of effects, making it a great choice for painting the diverse factions of the Xeno armies in Warhammer 40K universe.

Balor Brown Colour Schemes & Combinations

Here is a list of yellow, grey, and brass Citadel Colour paints that can be used together:

The decision to list these specific paints was made by considering colour theory and the principles of complementary, split-complementary, and analogous colours. Yellow and grey can be used in combination as a complementary colour scheme. Yellow is the opposite of purple on the colour wheel, so by using grey, you can create a balanced look by providing contrast to the yellow. The brass paint is used as a metallic highlight to add depth and interest to the overall colour combo. Overall, these colours have been chosen to provide a strong contrast and balance between hues, shadows and highlights.
