I painted up this 40k Primaris Intercessor for a local store to help advertise their painting night. There’s a few areas that need some touch-up I think (after seeing it this close) but he’s pretty much done. He’s a Brazen Claw. I thought it would be fun to try the quartered paint scheme and I had the shoulder pad kicking around from the new Deathwatch kit.
Pretty shnazzy! Looks really good. After painting this scheme, would you feel it a pain to paint a whole squad like so? I’ve painted the same sort of scheme in 15mm, but it goes far quicker on that size and I would imagine all the blending that would need to take place on such a large model would be time consuming.

Thanks guys. I intended him to be a one off but I’ve since bought a few more. 😛
I used an airbrush to lay the red down, DSG. After that I based the blue, washed it, touched up the red, washed it, then highlighted the red and then the blue. That wasn’t too bad, I felt I had to go about it in that order though because of the washes and the red showing mistakes readily. It’s definitely more time consuming then just painting a single color, for sure. As long as you’re careful near the midline it’s all right.
The paints I used for Army Painter, if anyone is interested.
