Stormcast Eternals Celestant-Prime Showcase
Over the weekend I painted up my Celestant Prime model from the new Age of Sigmar Stormcast Eternals army. The Celestant Prime is a hero character that strikes in times of need and wields the warhammer Ghal Maraz, which did belong to Sigmar but he gifted it to the first of his Stormcast Eternals.
He was a bit of a fiddly model to assemble. Most of the instruction booklet was his swirly orrery! I decided to build and paint him as a single model to make sure all the gaps were filled and covered up. It made him a little more difficult to paint but not impossible. He still fits in the Citadel case nicely despite his wing being glued on.
The Celestant Prime was a joy to paint, so many different areas to try out various techniques and colours. In my Stormcast army I have a unifying hue of purples in the recesses of the armours, weapons and cloths and I kept that with the Celestant Prime where I could. There’s purple shading on the red cloak, the orrery, the galaxies and his weapons.
If you have any questions on how I painted a certain area just ask away in the comments below and I’ll do my best to answer!
