Chaos Terminator Painting Showcase for Chaos Marines

Chaos Terminator Painting

Seems like I was working on this model forever. Once I had decided my paint scheme I wanted to see it on a model and began painting this Chaos Terminator.

Once I had things base coated I knew I liked the scheme and left him that way for a while as I worked on models that ‘needed’ to get done. I finally got back around to him and I’m glad he’s finally done.

The shots are a bit dark. I’m still working out lighting for the light box I made. Really I just need an area I can leave it set up so I’m not dragging stuff around each time.

Painting Thoughts

Overall I’m really happy with how he came out.

This model took a while too because really he was my test model for everything. I figured if I worked out all the details on this model then I’d have a template to work from going forward.

The power weapon took me three tries to get it to where I was happy with it. I had a hard time trying to determine a color that worked with the rest of the scheme.

The warband logo took me a few tries as well. Painting a crescent moon was a bit tricky to get the shape right. That and painting white over black is never really ideal.

The half paint scheme wasn’t too bad to do, but I tried various methods of shading on the greyish blue before I was happy with that.

I settled on just using Nuln Oil wash to get the shading, which ties the blue back over to the black side too.

Now I have it figured out the next ones should go a lot quicker. Looking forward to having the entire unit of Terminators all painted up.

Looks good!  I’m liking the halved color scheme, and purple power weapons are cool.

That Looks awesome! I must say when I first saw the paint scheme that you were going with, I wasn’t so sure, but this looks fantastic! The only problem I see is a gap in between the body and the shoulder of the combi-melta arm. Probably due to a magnet I’m guessing?

Looks like a nice, solid paintjob  there. The details like the crescent moon and the purple on the power weapon are nice touches.

Very nice.
