What Armies of the Imperium to paint with Mephiston Red – Air Paint
The Warhammer 40K universe is home to many factions and armies, each with their own unique color schemes and aesthetics. Mephiston Red is a popular color choice for many of the Imperium’s armies due to its striking appearance and versatility. Here are three Imperial armies that you can paint with Mephiston Red:
- The Blood Angels: This Space Marine chapter is known for its use of red power armor, making Mephiston Red a perfect choice for painting their armor, helmets, and other equipment.
- The Imperial Guard: The Imperial Guard is the backbone of the Imperium’s military, consisting of a vast array of soldiers, tanks, and artillery. Mephiston Red can be used to paint the guardsmen’s lasguns, tanks and other machinery, providing a striking contrast against the more muted colors typically used for their uniforms.
- The Adeptus Mechanicus: The Adeptus Mechanicus is a faction within the Imperium that specialize in the maintenance and use of advanced technology. Mephiston Red can be used to paint their advanced machinery, including their Skitarii soldiers’ armor and weapons.
In summary, I have chosen these armies as they all have a red theme in their aesthetic and Mephiston red would complement them very well, whether it’s painting the power armor of Space Marines, lasguns and tanks of Imperial Guard, or the advanced machinery of Adeptus Mechanicus.
