Space Marines are always the featured army from GW, so there is no better time to paint up your forces! If you’re planning on going with this chapter, you’ll need to get good at painting blue, and this tutorial will help you tackle the steps literally almost as fast as you can!
This is seriously about painting them fast, so if you want your army done in a week, this is the tutorial!
Let’s see how to do it.
How to Speed Paint Ultramarines: Painting Tutorial
Max starts out by spraying the marine Ultramarine Blue from the Army Painter because you can just spray it on with the can. Obviously, this isn’t going to be the cleanest paint job ever, but he’s used this method to paint an entire army in a week.
Next, he takes the color match blue from the army Painter and cleans up any areas he needs from the spray. Next, he breaks out the Balthazar Gold and hits all the gold trim with it. Then he takes Silver and hits all the areas, such as the gun and such. He does the gold and silver first because they take the longest.
For the purity seals, he paints them with Skeleton Bone and Mephiston Red. He also decided to paint the insignia on the shoulder, but you can also just put on a decal. All you have to do is paint a little circle with a line running across the top and then a smaller one inside with the blue from before.
Now, it’s time to shade. For color, he uses Agrax Earthshade and shades the entire mini with it! You can also use the Quickshade from the Army Painter, which has a similar feel. Next, he takes the model off the temporary “painting” base and puts it on a base he finished up from another tutorial for it.
The last step is to paint the eyes. He paints his bright green and then highlights them with yellow.
That does it for this one! If you want to see more, check out Hellfire Hobbies’ own tutorial by clicking this link here.
