How to paint the Kill Team: Blooded set
- Step 1: Priming
Start by cleaning the miniatures using warm, soapy water to remove any mold release agent. Give them a good rinse and allow them to dry completely.
Next, it’s time to prime the miniatures. Use Chaos Black spray paint and apply thin, even coats. Make sure each coat is dry before applying the next one. It’s important to achieve full coverage for a solid base.
- Step 2: Base Colors
Let’s begin painting the Traitor Guard first. Grab your Leadbelcher paint and start applying it to their armor and cloth. For the skin areas, use Bugman’s Glow.
Moving on to the Traitor Enforcer and Traitor Ogryn, paint their armor with Retributor Armor. Their cloth and other non-metallic parts should be painted with Zandri Dust. If there are any additional details, such as small accessories, use Rhinox Hide.
- Step 3: Washes
To add depth and shading, it’s time for washes. Apply Agrax Earthshade over the armor and cloth of the Traitor Guard, focusing on the recessed areas. For the skin areas, use Carroburg Crimson.
For the metallic parts of both the Traitor Guard and the Traitor Enforcer/Traitor Ogryn, apply Nuln Oil wash. To bring out the details in the skin of the Traitor Enforcer and Traitor Ogryn, use Guilliman Flesh wash.
- Step 4: Layering and Highlights
Let’s enhance the details by layering and highlighting. Apply two thin coats of Rakarth Flesh on the skin areas of the Traitor Guard, ensuring the wash stays in the recesses.
Highlight the armor of the Traitor Guard with Ironbreaker, focusing on the edges and raised areas. For the Traitor Enforcer and Traitor Ogryn, use Liberator Gold to highlight their armor, emphasizing the edges and prominent areas.
If there are any additional metallic areas, such as accessories or weapons, use Balthasar Gold for highlighting. Ushabti Bone can be used to highlight the cloth of both the Traitor Guard and Traitor Enforcer/Traitor Ogryn. Don’t forget to paint any eyes or small details with White Scar.
- Step 5: Fine Details
Let’s add some finishing touches. Use Carroburg Crimson to paint any blood or gore effects, such as wounds or splatters, on the miniatures.
For any additional details like belts, pouches, or accessories, choose appropriate colors from the Citadel range, such as Averland Sunset or other desired colors.
- Step 6: Basing
Now, let’s work on the bases. Apply Astrogranite Texture to the bases of the miniatures, either creating texture with a sculpting tool or leaving it smooth.
Once the texture is dry, apply a wash of Nuln Oil over the base to add depth and definition. After that, drybrush the base with Administratum Grey to give it a worn look.
If you desire, you can glue small rocks or other basing materials to the base for added detail and realism.
