Arco-flagellants, fierce companions to loyal Adepta Sororitas armies, bound alongside their priestly masters with their whip-like limbs swaying in anticipation of battle. Injected with powerful adrenal stimulants and driven by neural kill-signals, they unleash their frenzied fury upon sighting the enemy, disregarding their own safety. With cyber-implanted flails, pneu-mattocks, and cleavers, they hack and slash relentlessly, leaving only a pile of mutilated corpses in their wake.
Each Arco-flagellant comes equipped with a pair of arco-flails, their limbs permanently affixed to these devastating weapons. The kit offers a range of options, including two variations for the head, left arm, and right arm, allowing for customization and creating unique combinations. Notably, you can recreate the iconic Arco-flagellant, Damien 1427, with a specific set of components.

How to paint the Arco-flagellants Set
- Step 1: Prepare Your Workspace
Choose a well-lit and clean area to work on your painting project. Gather all the necessary supplies, including brushes, paints, water, and a palette. Lay down a protective covering to avoid any accidental spills or stains.
- Step 2: Prime the Models
Apply a thin and even coat of primer to the Arco-flagellant figurines. Primer helps the paint adhere better and provides a smooth surface to work on. For example, you can use the Citadel Chaos Black Spray Primer.
- Step 3: Basecoat the Armor
Start by applying a basecoat to the armor. One suitable color choice could be Mephiston Red. Use a medium-sized brush and apply thin layers, allowing each layer to dry before adding more. This ensures smooth coverage and prevents clumping.
- Step 4: Highlight the Armor
Using a lighter shade of red, such as Evil Sunz Scarlet, carefully highlight the raised edges and details of the armor. This technique adds depth and brings out the intricate design. Apply the highlights sparingly, focusing on areas that catch the light.
- Step 5: Paint the Details
Now it’s time to paint the various details of the Arco-flagellants. Use a smaller brush to work on the skin, weapons, and other intricate elements. For example, you can use Rakarth Flesh for the skin, Leadbelcher for the metallic parts, and Abaddon Black for the weapons.
- Step 6: Wash for Depth
Apply a wash to the models using Agrax Earthshade. Dilute it slightly with water and carefully apply it to the recesses and crevices. This adds shadows and depth to the models, enhancing their overall appearance.
- Step 7: Highlight the Details
Once the wash is dry, go back and apply a subtle highlight to the raised areas of the details. For example, use Ushabti Bone for the skin and Stormhost Silver for the metallic parts. This step adds further definition and brings out the finer elements of the models.
- Step 8: Add Base Colors
Paint the base of the models using colors that match the desired theme. You can use Stirland Battlemire for an earthy base or Astrogranite Texture for a rocky terrain effect. Add additional details like grass tufts or small rocks to enhance the overall presentation.
- Step 9: Apply a Varnish
To protect your hard work and give the models a finished look, apply a coat of varnish. Munitorum Varnish provides a protective layer that guards against chipping and wear. Ensure the models are completely dry before applying the varnish and follow the instructions on the varnish product.
