When it came to painting up this marine, I wanted the model to share colors with the Imperial Guard models that I had completed a few years ago. This meant using Vallejo Dark Blue as a base for the first layer of paint.
After applying the first layer of paint and touching up spots where the primer bleed through, I gave the blue sections a wash of GW Asurmen Blue.
Once the wash was dry, I applied layers of Dark Blue mixed with Electric Blue.
As I continued to layer the model, Vallejo Skull White was added to the mix.
With each layer, I would alternate between adding more thinner and/or Vallejo Glaze Medium. The reason I do this is to better blend the layers together and create a smooth transition across the blue sections.
As the layers became whiter, I applied them only along the edges and at the sharp corners of the model.
