As a triad of Canoptek Spyders converges, a symphony of efficiency unfolds. One assumes command, harnessing the collective processing power of its counterparts to forge an intellect that eclipses the sum of its parts. This orchestration extends its influence, enhancing the prowess of Canoptek Wraiths and Canoptek Scarabs in proximity. A synchronized and precise response to any threat ensues, safeguarding the tranquility of their dormant masters.

The Canoptek Spyder reigns supreme in the realm of formidable mechanical constructs. Whether rending enemy infantry and tanks asunder with its array of hooks and blades or mending the wounds of your beleaguered vehicles, its versatility is unmatched.

How to paint the Canoptek Spyder set

  1. Step 1: Base Coating
    Begin by applying a base coat to the Canoptek Spyder’s body and limbs. Use a color like Leadbelcher or Iron Warriors to provide a solid foundation for the subsequent layers.
  2. Step 2: Accentuating Details
    Highlight the intricate details of the Canoptek Spyder’s mechanical components using a slightly lighter shade. Utilize a paint like Runelord Brass or Retributor Armor to make the details pop.
  3. Step 3: Shading
    Apply a shade like Nuln Oil to the crevices and recesses of the Canoptek Spyder to add depth and contrast. This technique enhances the three-dimensional look of the model.
  4. Step 4: Dry Brushing
    Dry brush a lighter metallic color, such as Necron Compound or Stormhost Silver, over the raised areas of the Canoptek Spyder. This technique highlights the edges and adds a weathered effect.
  5. Step 5: Eye and Energy Effects
    Paint the eyes and energy sources with a bright color like Moot Green to give them a vibrant and otherworldly appearance.
  6. Step 6: Final Highlights
    Apply final highlights using an even lighter shade of metallic paint, such as Liberator Gold or Sycorax Bronze. This step enhances the metallic sheen and draws attention to the most prominent details.
  7. Step 7: Basing
    Consider the base of your Canoptek Spyder. Use texture paints like Astrogranite Debris or Stirland Mud to create a realistic terrain effect. You can also add some additional details like small rocks or tufts of grass.
  8. Step 8: Varnishing for Protection
    Apply a protective varnish like Ardcoat to shield your masterpiece from wear and tear. This step preserves your hard work and adds a polished finish.
