I’ve been sitting on a Heldrake since not long after the Chaos Space Marine codex was released earlier this year. Regardless of the model’s rules I find it to be a very cool model. However, the slightly overpowered nature of the rules kept me from painting it as I hate to be seen as a band-wagon jumper. I’d rather be a post-hipster playing models that used to be cool but are not any longer… 😉
The various parts for this model sat in pieces staring at me for a few months before I decided to get to it. Based upon my painting goals I decided to prime black and work up from there. I was inspired by a tutorial on YouTube by BuyPainted. I basically copied his technique, but changed out the colors.
