What kind of paint do you use on Ultramarines?

How many models are in the Indomitus box?

The Indomitus box is packed full of new miniatures for both the Space Marines and Necrons. On the Marine side, there’s 24 new models – the bulk of them are the new Assault Intercessors, but there’s five different characters in there including the brand new Bladeguard Ancient and Judiciar, as well as new spins on the Primaris Captain, Primaris Lieutenant, and Primaris Chaplain. Along with these we also have three brand new units in the shape of the Outriders and their truly enormous bases, the Bladeguard Veterans, and the Eradicators. Unlike the Shadowspear box last year which was all about the Vanguard Space Marines, these are a mix of different model types, with both Tacticus and Gravis armour, new bikers, and a lot of the more old-school Space Marine aesthetic that was somewhat absent from other parts of the Primaris range – it’s all robes and chains and weird hourglasses here. With such variety in the box, there’s a lot to talk about in terms of different approaches. Luckily Liam, Jack, and Raf have been hard at work on their review copies, kindly provided by Games Workshop, and now they’re here to talk about them!

The Chaplain is similar in execution except that the armour is, obviously, black. The main part is straight VMC Black, edge highlighted with Eshin Grey, Mechanicus Standard Grey, and then just a touch of Dawnstone.

How to paint yellow armor?

I prime in tan, pre-shade with VMA Mud and Rust, add a highlight of Insignia White, then lightly airbrush layers of Medium Yellow over until I’m happy with the vibra nce. I do some edge highlights with Phalanx Yellow and a pinwash of AK Paneliner for Sand and Desert to finish up the yellow, after which it gets weathered primarily by sponging Rhinox Hide.


Grays and whites are probably better priming colors here for a bolder blue armor.


When painting any miniature, it is important to decide ahead of time what you would like to focus on. Try to set achievable goals. Here, I wanted to replicate the ‘boxart’ standard of Ultramarine Space Marines found on the shelves of your local Warhammer 40,000 seller.


Certainly bold, but not very interesting when it is just one, flat color…


Recesses defined, but highlights and a matte varnish may be necessary.


Persevere with your edge highlights as they will need to be built up gradually.


Lastly we mustn’t forget other key details that need highlights, too. It helps the overall effect if every element is ‘popping’ to the same standard we have achieved with our armor highlights.

What paint should I use for miniatures?
