Within these squads, the dynamic presence of Krootox and the fierce companionship of Kroot Hounds are frequently found. Rooted in a deep tradition of martial excellence, the Kroot are celebrated for their valor on the battlefield and, in true T’au fashion, are duly acknowledged and rewarded for their unwavering allegiance to the T’au empire.

How to paint the Kroot Carnivore Squad set

  1. Step 1: Prime Your Miniatures
    Begin by applying a thin, even coat of Chaos Black Spray primer to your Kroot Carnivore Squad miniatures. This will create a solid base for your paints.
  2. Step 2: Basecoat the Skin
    Using a medium-sized brush, apply a basecoat of a suitable skin color like Waaagh! Flesh to the Kroot’s skin. Ensure an even coverage over all the skin areas.
  3. Step 3: Paint the Clothing
    With a smaller brush, paint the clothing and accessories of the Kroot using colors like Mechanicus Standard Grey or Khorne Red, depending on the style you prefer.
  4. Step 4: Highlight the Skin
    Using a slightly lighter shade like Straken Green, carefully highlight the raised areas and edges of the skin. This technique adds depth and dimension.
  5. Step 5: Add Details
    Choose an accent color like Averland Sunset to paint specific details such as jewelry or pouches. This adds visual interest and personality to the models.
  6. Step 6: Apply Wash for Depth
    Use a wash like Agrax Earthshade to create shading on the clothing and accessories. Apply the wash to the recesses, giving them a more realistic appearance.
  7. Step 7: Highlight the Clothing
    Using a lighter shade than the base color, such as Administratum Grey for grey clothing, highlight the edges of the clothing. This step brings out the texture and adds contrast.
  8. Step 8: Paint Weapon and Accessories
    With a fine brush, paint the weapons and other accessories. Leadbelcher can be used for metallic parts and Retributor Armor for gold accents.
  9. Step 9: Seal Your Work
    Protect your effort with a matte varnish spray like Munitorum Varnish. This not only preserves the paint but also gives your Kroot Carnivore Squad a cohesive finish.
