Set up a clean and well-lit area to work on your miniatures. Gather all the necessary tools and paints, ensuring they are easily accessible.
- Step 2: Prime the Miniatures
Apply a thin and even coat of Chaos Black spray primer to the Catachan Jungle Fighters. This provides a solid base for the paint to adhere to.

Add details to the Catachan Jungle Fighters using different colors. Use Leadbelcher for any metallic areas, Zandri Dust for pouches and belts, and Abaddon Black for weapons. Apply Mephiston Red for bandanas or scarves.
- Step 5: Washes
Apply washes to add depth and shading to the miniatures. Use Agrax Earthshade for the skin, clothing, and pouches, and Nuln Oil for the metallic areas and weapons. Apply the washes carefully, allowing them to settle into the recesses to create shadows and definition.
- Step 6: Fine Details
Focus on the finer details of the Catachan Jungle Fighters. Use Mournfang Brown for straps and handles, Ushabti Bone for bones or teeth, and Bugman’s Glow for scars or wounds. Use a fine brush for precision.
- Step 7: Basing
Paint the bases of the miniatures using Stirland Mud for texture. Once dry, you can add grass, rocks, or other scenic elements to enhance the bases. Steel Legion Drab can be used to paint the rims of the bases.
