1: Base Colors
After priming the model black, I blocked in the base colors
using the following GW colors:
Armor - Mithril Silver
'Gold' areas - Shining Gold
Armor Joints, Darker Metal - Boltgun Metal
Purity Seals, Skulls, etc.- Bestial Brown
Bolter Casing - Chaos Black
Eyes - Ice Blue
Try to get even coverage at this stage, because after the
washes go on, it can be a bit tricky to do touch up work
on areas that you may have missed.
I also do the basic layour for the shoulder pad at this
stage, though it's not visible in this shot. I lay out the
basic heraldry on the left shoulder pad using Skull White
and Blood Red.
