Black Templar Intercessor Squad

Templar Primaris Intercessor Squad Heiden, ready for the crusade.
 Lovely models to assemble and paint, more to come soon.

White Recipe:

Prime areas white. Paint white. Glaze lightly in all recesses with greys, then overlay with thin light sepia glazes from halfway down in around seven or eight layers, stronger to the bottom of the pads. Varnish seal work. Line out with mixed black/dark grey oil paint thinned with white spirit. You can also correct any sloppy glaze errors by modulating with sepia oil paints at the final stage if required, or add damage marks/grime as desired.

Black Recipe:

Spray primer black all over. Spray primer white *lightly* from above. With a light grey, VERY finely edge highlight most extreme angles, here and there as desired, very optional placement. Bring it all down again with black washes. Seal model with varnish. When completely dry and solid, work any areas that are still too light down into shadow using black oil paint, thinned with white spirits. This will also help line out all recesses even darker too. At this stage you can also add in colours to your remaining highlights above and shadows below with subtle purples, blues, umbers, whatever you feel like to modulate the look here and there. Pop edges as needed with light greys again, but again, optional and very subtle or it will botch the finish.

Most importantly: have fun experimenting with your own style and remember, the crusade is eternal.
