How I painted the dark blue and gold power armour of my Chaos Space Marines.

  1. Basecoat all blue areas with Kantor Blue .
  2. Recess shade all blue panels with Kantor Blue and Abaddon Black m mixed 2:1.
  3. Do a chunky highlight of Calgar Blue around the inside of armour panels and along exposed edges.
  4. Add a fine highlight of Hoeth Blue to everything highlighted in the previous step.
  5. Selectively highlight corners and the extreme parts of exposed edges with Blue Horror .
  6. Add an optional dot highlight of Ulthuan Grey to the centre of your Blue Horror highlights and on the point of corners.
  7. Basecoat all armour trim with Liberator Gold . This is likely to take a few coats.
  8. Cover all of the trim with Guilliman Flesh and Contrast Medium mixed 1:1.
  9. Go around all rivets in the gold with more Guilliman Flesh and pop a little extra into deeper areas of the armour.
  10. Highlight extreme edges of the gold armour with small lines of Stormhost Silver . Dont forget to the armours rivets too.
