The BOS elder paint, BOS sentinel paint, BOS paladin paint and BOS knight paint are power armor paint schemes in Fallout 4.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

It is a paint scheme with a metal base and the Brotherhood of Steel logo on the chest. All the Brotherhood of Steel paint schemes are only available on T-60 power armors.

The only difference between the high-rank-paint jobs (paladin, sentinel, elder) is the rank badge on the lower left arm. The appearance of the armor does change visibly from the knight to the paladin paint.

With the addition of the "Captain Cosmos" Creation Club content, the paladin paint can also be added to the CC-00 power armor but does not add any weight. It requires oil x2 and steel x2 per piece painted. It can also be added to the Creation Club's Hellfire power armor, with exception to the elder paint scheme.
