How to paint the Kroot Carnivore Squad set
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
