Forsaken – Bane – by Dave Taylor

The backbone of the Forsaken military forces are the Banes. As the most numerous troops, I figured this would be a great place to start. The black cloak and clothing can also be found on several models across the Forsaken range, like the Ravages and St. John’s Faithful. This approach can even be helpful for troops like Coils, Firestorms, and St. Mark’s Shades.

Throughout this article we’ll refer to various paint colors from both the Vallejo and Army Painter ranges. These are typically available from your FLGS, or through our webstore. You’ll be able to recognize these by the prefix we use: VMC – Vallejo Model Color, VGC – Vallejo Game Color, VMA – Vallejo Model Air, AP – Army Painter.


Black Cloak and Clothing
As the bulk of the Bane is the black clothing and cape, I decided to start*with a simple black spray primer.

Step One – Highlight with a 1:1 mix of VMC Black and VMC Field Blue

Step Two – Highlight with a 1:2 mix of VMC Black and VMC Field Blue

Step Three – Highlight with VMC Field Blue


Bane Armor
Step One – Basecoat with AP Gun Metal

Step Two – Wash with a thinned AP Strong Tone

Step Three – Highlight with AP Gun Metal

Step Four – Highlight with VMA Aluminium


Gold Weapons
Step One – Basecoat with VGC Hammered Copper

Step Two – Highlight with VGC Glorious Gold

Step Three – Highlight with a 1:1 mix of VGC Glorious Gold and VMA Aluminium

Step Four – Shade specific areas with AP Purple Tone


Completing the Bane
All that remained was to finish off the details (skin, hair, belts, etc) and complete the base of the model. If you work on a whole army like this, you’ll have a very striking force ready to take to the tabletop and push back the darkness and evil that plagues Samaria beyond the bounds of New Ashkelon.
