Few accomplishments are as esteemed among Beast Snagga Orks as the successful taming of a squigosaur. These ill-tempered creatures possess an insatiable appetite and near-invulnerability to gunfire. To earn the privilege of riding them, Beastbosses must assert their dominance by engaging in fierce confrontations, leaving both Ork and squigosaur with a begrudging mutual respect that becomes a tremendous asset on the battlefield.
Guiding their squigosaurs into combat, Beastbosses leverage their mounts’ ravenous appetites and powerful legs, ensuring they lead the charge and reach the enemy lines first. With a thunderous impact, Beastbosses swiftly dispatch vanguard forces, setting their sights on larger adversaries. In perfect harmony, the Beastboss and squigosaur become an indomitable force, seemingly impervious to enemy fire as they relentlessly hack and chomp their way to victory. The bond between rider and mount proves invaluable in the heat of battle, making this union a formidable and awe-inspiring sight to behold. So, if you seek an unyielding force on the battlefield, look no further than a Beastboss and their squigosaur companion, a testament to the ferocity and power of the Beast Snagga Orks.

How to paint the Beastboss on Squigosaur set
- Step 1: Basecoat the Squigosaur in Red
Start by applying a basecoat of red paint to the Squigosaur. Choose a bright and vibrant red color, like Mephiston Red, to cover its skin. Make sure to paint all the areas you want to be red, including the body, claws, and any other red sections.
- Step 2: Add Wash for Depth
To add depth and shadows to the Squigosaur’s red skin, apply a wash of dark brown, such as Agrax Earthshade, over the red basecoat. Focus on the crevices and recessed areas to create a more realistic and textured appearance.
- Step 3: Highlight the Red Skin
After the wash has dried, use a lighter shade of red, like Evil Sunz Scarlet, to highlight the raised areas of the Squigosaur’s skin. Concentrate on the prominent scales and muscles, as well as the edges of the claws. This will make the red color pop and add dimension to the model.
- Step 4: Paint the Beastboss
Move on to the Beastboss, painting its skin with a suitable Ork color like Waaagh! Flesh. For its clothing, go with darker colors like Abaddon Black for a more intimidating appearance.
- Step 5: Add Wash and Highlights to the Beastboss
Apply a wash like Agrax Earthshade over the Beastboss’s skin to create depth and shadows. Once dry, use a lighter Ork color, such as Warboss Green, to highlight the skin and add definition to the muscles and features.
- Step 6: Tame the Squigosaur
Paint the Squigosaur’s saddle and any additional equipment the Beastboss is using to control the creature. Use metallic colors like Leadbelcher for metal parts and any contrasting colors for straps or ropes.
- Step 7: Add Details to the Beastboss
Focus on adding details to the Beastboss, such as belts, pouches, and weapons. Use colors that complement the overall appearance, like Gorthor Brown for the belts, and metallic shades for the weapons.
- Step 8: Final Touches and Basing
Add any final details to both the Squigosaur and the Beastboss, such as tribal tattoos, battle scars, or other unique markings. If you wish to base the miniatures, consider using textured paints or materials like sand and rocks. Paint the base with a suitable color like Steel Legion Drab and add some tufts of grass or other decorations for a more dynamic and engaging display.
- Step 9: Varnish (Optional)
For added protection and a professional finish, consider applying a layer of varnish. A matte varnish will provide a non-shiny appearance, while a gloss varnish will enhance the colors’ vibrancy.
