How to Paint Night Lords Terminator


Sorry about that little hiccup, realized I put in one of the clips twice, and saw some editing issues that I wanted to resolve. Promise to leave this one up. Hope you guys like it! Let me know how it works out for you!

My first Warboss Taetorial! (If you don't count my taking this video down and putting it right back up after fixing some small issues with editing.)

Here's how I painted up my Night Lords Terminator. NOTE: You'll need to go watch Cattatafish's video on How to Paint Lightning Claws to do that one step. I didn't want to include it in my video and take viewers away from him, since I learned the technique by watching it, myself.

Other than that, this video will teach you how I basecoat, highlight and shade my Night Lords, and the secret recipes I used to do the freehand insignia on the shoulder plate. (By the way, I fixed the crooked symbol in post-production i.e. after a full 8 hours of sleep this morning =P)

Here is a list of the paints you'll need. Sorry, I don't know the Reaper or Vallejo equivalent, I only have GW paints:

GW FOUNDATION Necron Abyss
GW FOUNDATION Tausept Ochre
GW FOUNDATION Astronomicon Grey
GW FOUNDATION Dheneb Stone

GW Badab Black
GW Devlan Mud
GW Asurmen Blue (If you want to go the extra step and tie the colors of your lightning claws together, I used this wash lightly before reapplying the skull white)

GW Shining Gold
GW Boltgun Metal
GW Burnished Gold

GW Blood Red
GW Red Gore
GW Dark Flesh
GW Regal Blue
GW Skull White
GW Space Wolves Grey
GW Shadow Grey
GW Chaos Black
GW Hawk Turqoise
GW Ice Blue

'Ardcoat Gloss Varnish (any gloss varnish that you can paint onto the eye lens will do)

my night lords army is a lot darker than that and the bolts should be based with a light bule and thin lined over with a skull white

when doing the eyes great job however in addition to the blood red add a WWWWWEEEEEEEEEEEEEE bit of dwarf flesh in the corner towards the nost just gives it a really sunrise look to it

I converted the SM assault marines and painted them up night lord styles. witch made me chose to repaint my whole Black legion army to night lords. I got a lot of work ahead of me good job on the vid, maybe i will post some pics of my guys, we panted them quite similarly.

Haha, it's because I usually only paint Night Lords when there's a really crazy thunderstorm. I made an exception yesterday because I got a request to do this tutorial =)
