Video ‘How to: Paint Purple Sword Blades, Power Swords.

In the second sword blade tutorial, we’ll be painting up a purple blade. I use these myself on my Sons of Horus and Black Legion, as well as the odd plaguebearer weapon. It’s a really simple technique, and I like to give it a coat of gloss varnish afterward as it gives it a kind of obsidian look.

A full list (three!!) of paints can be found below the video.

Paints
Citadel Xereus Purple
Vallejo White

Shades
Citadel Druchii Violet
