These highly trained soldiers, who undergo rigorous combat training at the renowned Schola Progenium, are equipped with top-of-the-line gear and protected by reinforced carapace armor. Primed for a diverse range of specialist missions and prepared for daring aerial drops into warzones that most would deem suicidal, their primary weapon of choice is the armor-piercing hot-shot lasgun, enhanced with advanced sights.

This multipart plastic kit allows you to assemble five Tempestus Scions, the renowned soldiers of the feared Militarum Tempestus. Each model can be armed with a hot-shot lasgun, and the kit includes an optional vox-caster for enhanced communication. Furthermore, an arsenal of additional weapons is provided to equip specialist gunners, including options such as the plasma gun, meltagun, grenade launcher, flamer, or hot-shot volley gun. To further personalize your models, the kit also includes parts to build one model as a Tempestor squad leader, with a variety of alternative weapon choices for both melee combat and ranged fire, such as the chainsword, power fist, power sword, hot-shot laspistol, bolt pistol, or plasma pistol.

In addition to the extensive weapon options, the kit features an abundance of interchangeable components and cosmetic choices to customize your Tempestus Scions. With a selection of 17 different heads, including eight helmets and nine berets, as well as accessories like ammo pouches, knives, grenades, and canteens, you can create unique and visually striking models that reflect the individuality of your force.

How to paint the Militarum Tempestus Scions set

  1. Step 1: Prime the Models
    Start by priming your Militarum Tempestus Scions models with a black or grey primer. This will provide a solid base for the paint and help the colors adhere better.
  2. Step 2: Basecoat the Armor
    Use Macragge Blue to paint the armor of the Scions. Apply thin and even coats to ensure smooth coverage. Let it dry before moving to the next step.
  3. Step 3: Paint the Details
    Use Leadbelcher to paint the metallic parts of the models, such as weapons, joints, and other metallic elements. Be careful and precise with your brushwork to ensure neat and clean lines.
  4. Step 4: Highlight the Armor
    To add depth and dimension to the armor, use Fenrisian Grey to carefully highlight the raised edges and surfaces. Apply thin lines or dots to create a subtle highlighting effect.
  5. Step 5: Paint the Accents
    Use Mephiston Red to paint any red accents on the models, such as lights or markings. Apply the paint carefully and precisely to achieve clean and vibrant red details.
  6. Step 6: Add Wash for Depth
    Apply Nuln Oil wash to the metallic areas to create shadows and enhance the details. Use Agrax Earthshade wash on the blue armor areas to add depth and bring out the crevices and recesses.
  7. Step 7: Highlight the Details
    Use a small brush and carefully apply highlights to the metallic areas using Stormhost Silver. This will make the metallic parts stand out and add a polished look.
  8. Step 8: Base the Models
    Finish off by basing the models to match your gaming table or desired theme. You can use textures paints like Astrogranite or Armageddon Dust, and add additional details such as grass tufts or rocks for extra realism.
