Step by step: Imperial Fists Templar Brethren

Hello! Today I bring another step by step for you! I have said that I will show you how to paint the Imperial Fists templar brethren as I uploaded the fotos from the first templar brethren, so here have you it!

First of all, the basecoat is painted with citadel zamesi dessert. As I said in the other post, I think this yellow is perfect for the imperial fists because is a “not so shiny” yellow.

Secondly I paint all the black parts with black (there is not few black parts on the model although perhaps it doesn´t seem so)

Then, I paint the lines between the armour panels and the bolts with a mixture 50/50 of vallejo black and german c. black brown. Remember this mixture because we are going to do the scratches and damage on the armour later with it.

For the highlight on the armour I use a mixture 50/50 of white with citadel skull white. I paint the edges of the armour with it. For the black parts I highlight first with vallejo neutral grey and than with a mixture 50/50 of this grey with white.


For the white parts, I use a basecoat of neutral grey and then I add white for the highlights till I reach a mixture 30/70 of neutral grey with white.


For the laurels I use a basecoat of citadel caliban gren, then I highlight the edges with citadel warpstone glow for the first highlight. For the second I add a tip of white to the warpstone glow.

I paint the energy of the plasma pistol first with vallejo dark prussian blue, then I apply a wash with citadel caledor sky. I paint last a highlight with caledor sky with white. I used citadel balthasar gold for the barrel of the plasma pistol, I give it a wash with black brown to show the use and wear.

For the eyes I used citadel evil sunz scarlet and white for the point of light.



For the solarite power gauntlet I used vallejo blue green with white 50/50, then I add more white for the highlights.


As last thing, the scratches and damage of the armor, I paint these with the mixture 50/50 of black and vallejo german c. black brown of the beginning and then I highlight them with the same mixture with which I highltight the armour panels, white with skull white.

I hope you like it! As always if you have any question fell free to ask in the comments or send me and email. Happy painting!
