How to paint the Fire Warriors Strike Team set
- Step 1: White Armor
Begin by painting the armor of the Fire Warriors with White Scar. Use a medium-sized brush and carefully cover the armor plates. Ensure even coverage and smooth application for a clean look.
- Step 2: Black Clothing
Next, paint the clothing below the armor with Abaddon Black. Use the same medium-sized brush to cover the areas of clothing. Take your time to avoid any smudges or mistakes, as the contrast between the black clothing and white armor will create a striking visual effect.
- Step 3: Red Details
Now, focus on the details of the armor. Use a fine brush and Mephiston Red to carefully paint elements like insignias, markings, and any other desired red accents on the armor. These red details will add character and make the Fire Warriors stand out on the battlefield.
- Step 4: Rifles
Moving on to the rifles, paint them with White Scar. For the handles of the rifles, use Celestra Grey or any light grey color you want. This will create a realistic look for the rifle grips.
- Step 5: Details on Rifles
Now, add the finer details to the rifles. Use a fine brush and Abaddon Black to paint any small elements or parts on the rifles that require black accents. Additionally, use a metallic brass paint, like Balthasar Gold, to highlight certain parts of the rifles, such as the barrels or sights.
- Step 6: Weathering
To achieve the dirty white and yellowish rust effects you can see on most T’au miniatures, use Typhus Corrosion for the crevices of the armor and guns. Apply it with a fine brush, focusing on the recessed areas to create a weathered and worn appearance.
- Step 7: Varnish for Protection
To protect your hard work and preserve the paint job, apply Munitorum Varnish to the Fire Warriors Strike Team. This varnish provides a matte-satin like finish that will enhance the durability of the miniatures and protect them from wear and tear. Apply the varnish in thin, even coats, and let it dry completely before handling the miniatures.
- Step 8: Final Touches
Inspect your Fire Warriors Strike Team for any touch-ups or additional weathering effects that may be needed. Ensure that all colors and rust effects are applied neatly and evenly. This is also a good time to make any adjustments or corrections to the paint job before considering the miniatures complete.
