this is an advanced way to paint a 40k black templar. with this model it took me about 3 hours to paint so you need an excellent patients and time to burn.
Step 1: Undercoat
in this stage you spray a matte black ( I used chaos black from the citadel paints range).This will act as the main colour of the armor as well which is useful!
Step 2: Colour Range
this step is used for finding the perfect variation for the next step. so you add a black paint which is heavily waterd down and a heavily diluted white on the other side and blend them like I have done.
Step 3: Eyes
with the eyes you put in the red lens and add in the side the small white dot like an explosion in the corner of his eye.
Step 4: Shoulder Pads
with this step you use the coluor line to add a light and shadow affect and add the white paint in the middle part. ( I don't have any transfers so I cant do the templars - sorry!)
Step 5: Gun
on this part, you put on a drybrush on leadbealcher and then add diferent highlights with the colour row you made earlier.
Step 6: Extra Details
withthis you just add in extra bits like purity seals and wires ect
Step 7: Done!
you have your own battle ready black templar. now, to the tabletop!
