According to the fluff is there more than one way to paint your daemonhunter Terminators?
For some reason i remeber reading that there were multiply ways to paint Terminators,
possibly something to do with a black base coat.
I've finally got the time to paint mine and I was hoping to make them different than most
Any replies are greatly appreciated
Personally i would try a black basecoat with silver trimming or silver on the shoulderpads etc... but thats just something i think will look nice.Originally Posted by Salus

I think that painting them black with the silver trim is a wonderful idea!
Also though, I've sen alot of good looking terminators that are painted what looks like a Brazen Brass or something close to it that look good. My Terminators are basically what you see in the book, but I used red gore in alot of places that stand out, like the books, robes, etc....

Fluffwise, GKT (and all GK) should just be the codex colors. Hence them being the codex colors.
If you listen to non-canon stuff like most Black Library novels, you can do whatever you want. And of course, if you don't care to be 100% fluffy you can paint them however you like. My own GK & GKT have a lot of maroon incorporated into the codex scheme, so they're actually about half red and half silver (although it isn't a down-the-middle split).
Pure black power/terminator armor is traditionally a Deathwatch symbol. Or Black Templars, Dark Angels, or any number of successor chapters.
I was told the other day about someone who painted his GKTs as Black Templars then drybrushed the engraved writing on their armour with blood red, so I tried it with a spare GKT and I was impressed, it looks mean, and I've seen some Deathwing-esque (off-white with red and green trims) GKTs that were pretty nice. Try to avoid gold though, it's fine for one model per army but applied to squads it just looks garish.
Thank you for the replies
How would a dark blue like, Regal Blue and silver look, with hawk terquise (sp) look?
Keep the posts coming guys God knows I need the help
