Citadel miniatures lies at the heart of the Games Workshop hobby, an essential element of making the most of your miniatures collection
Games Workshop has created the Citadel Painting System, a revolutionary combination of techniques, tools and paints that makes painting straightforward, easy to learn and most importantly fun! Using the Citadel Painting System, you choose the colours you want to paint your models, select the techniques you want to use on them, and apply these in a few simple steps for what will be some great results.
If your miniatures are predominantly one colour (such as Space Marines and Stormcast Eternals), use a Citadel Spray. It’s much quicker than basecoating by hand, leaving you more time to slay
Washing is a technique that brings out all of the subtle details and textures on your model using Citadel Shades. Formulated to flow into recesses, Citadel Shades provide natural, effective shading and define details on your miniatures.
Drybrushing is an excellent technique for capturing raised details and creating natural highlights on models, especially those with a lot of small details or sharp edges. Citadel Dry paints are designed to make this much-loved method of painting as straightforward as possible.
Glazing is an advanced technique that many experienced painters use to great effect on their miniatures, primarily to intensify an area of colour. Citadel Glazes are special washes that can make the basecoats and layers on your models really stand out, or unify areas on your models where the colours might otherwise be a little too bright or the layering too stark.
The Citadel Edge Paints have been developed to help give your miniatures a final sharp, bright highlight. The paints possess the same formulation as the Citadel Layer Paints, but with a much lighter shade to help and you can use them alongside the rest of the Citadel Paint range.
A popular technique for painting Citadel miniatures is to use an airbrush for basecoats and layers, achieving a smooth, neat basecoat (or layer) in virtually no time. The Citadel Air paint range consists of 51 colours drawn from the Base and Layer range and specially formulated to be fired through an airbrush with no extra preparation.
The range also includes a Thinner which enables you to thin the consistency of your paints for subtle blending and shading.
We’ve spent countless hours thinking about how to help you achieve the best results possible when painting your miniatures. It’s an important part of the hobby, to some the most important, and the Citadel Brushes range has been carefully designed from the ground up to complement the Citadel Paint System in every way, allowing you to quickly and easily apply basecoats, layers, shades and glazes in a way that will produce results you’ll love showing off.
