First tutorial! whoo..
So I am making this tutorial about how I paint Black templar teminators! And to start of I will just say.. I am not Ap0k! My painting skills are no near any competion level and if someone makes one better.. I will just back away...
anyway back to the tutorial:
A starting tip: I ALWAYS thin down my paints!
First thing is to convert them! Black Templar terminators are not like normal terminators they are more ornate and such so convertion is needed
I start by undercoat the model with chaos black. Some paint
it on but I spray it on...
Stage 1: the white shoulder pad:
I start Out by painting it Fortess grey.
Dont worry about the paint getting anywhere you dont want it. It will be painted black agian in a later stage.
Then I paint layers of skull white:
This time you need to paint mutiple layers to get it right. thats how the damn white works
Stage 2: The tabard, purity seals and skulls!
I start out by painting them all Scorched brown:
Again dont worry about the paint getting anywhere you dont want it. It will be painted black again in a later stage.
Then layer on Bestial brown:
Then I layer on the skulls Gravyard earth:
the tabard and seals are layered with Snakebite leather:
Now I layer on Bleached bone on it all again:
To finsih them of I highlight them with a 50/50 mix of Bleached Bone and Skull White:
Stage 3: Reds and Eyes!
First clean up the areas where you want red with chaos black.
first thing I do is paint Scab red. but NOT on the eyes yet:
Next I layer Red Gore on. Here I paint allround the front 3/4's of the eyes. Leave a little black in the black corner:
Now I paint the areas Blood Red. In the eyes its only the front half of the eyes:
Now I mix Blazing Orange with Blood Red (50/50) and edge hightlight the red areas. The eyes get a thin Blazing Orange line in the front half instead(the red areas are done):
To finish off the eyes I paint a little dot of white in the back corner of the eyes:
Stage 4: The Cruxs
To start of the paint the cruxs i paint it the foundation paint Adeptus Battlegrey(If you dont have foundation paints codex grey mix with chaos black will do) as a basecoat:
Then I layer Codex grey on. Leave the former layer showing in the reseases:
To finish it I highlight it with Fortress grey:
Stage 5: Metal:
I paint All the areas I want metal(cables, the storm bolter and small bolts and such) with Boltgun metal:
Then I wash it with Black ink(exept the gun's case) and then layer chainmail on(highlight the case with chainmail):
To finish of I highlight the with Mithril Silvergold areas are painted: Basecoat: Shining Gold then wash brown ink on and highlight with a mix of Shining gold and Mithril silver) :
(some of the metal area pics are lost in space.. sorry)
Stage 6: The Black armor:
Now its time to clean up the model.. paint Chaos Black over the spots you didnt want paint on but it did...
Then start highlighting the armor with Adeptus Battlegrey on all edges:
Now highlight it with Codex grey this time not in the deeper areas:
Last highlight is Fortress grey. Only on the upper areas:
Stage 7: Base:
Paint it Bestial Brown.
Overbrush with Snakebite Leather.
And drybrush Bleached Bone:
Stage 8: freehand stuff:
Now you may wanna put some Templar crosses on the mini.. A tip is to put them where there arent so much else. Like on this ones left leg or powerfist..
