Space Hulk, painting the Blood Angels Terminators
Now that I’ve finished painting my Execution Force box (that was fun!) I can at last focus on Space Hulk. As always, I forbid myself to play the game unless the minis are painted.
I realized such a policy makes me spend a hell lot of time painting rather than playing but I guess that’s because I really like that. Anyway. Let’s share some first pictures.
I started with the Terminators. I keep the heros for the very end, hence I’m focusing on the « regular » terminator first. I’ll do the two sergeants and the Psy to finish that session. Then I’ll move on the Genestealers.
To gain some time, I based the miniatures with a Red Dragon primer from Army Painter. This red is very close to Mephiston Red and is perfect to paint quickly the miniatures. The sequences is basically the following:
- base the miniatures with Red Dragon primer
- shade them with agrax earthshade (entirely)
- edge-highlight the armor with Evil Sunz Scarlet and wild Rider Red
- work on the details
This sequence is really nice, as you don’t have to spend one hour on basing the red with a brush, you very quickly have the feeling of effectiveness. I really like working on details, I think that’s the interesting part of painting miniatures.
