The Penitent Engines, driven by repentant sinners in search of redemption, fearlessly charge into battle, embracing the certainty that only through their own death can absolution be attained. With towering flamers blazing a path of fiery devastation, these engines relentlessly advance, fueled by chemical and synaptic signals that induce overwhelming guilt, driving them to unleash a rampage of death and chaos. Some Penitent Engines wield adamantine-toothed buzz-blades, capable of slicing through even tank armor, while others inflict gruesome harm with their multi-headed flails, pulverizing flesh and bone.
This multipart plastic kit allows you to construct two Penitent Engines, powerful mechanical walkers that embody a deadly combination of resilience, speed, and close-quarters firepower. Each Penitent Engine is armed with two heavy flamers and can be equipped with a pair of penitent buzz-saws or penitent flails for melee combat. Alternatively, each miniature can be assembled as a Mortifier, providing additional tactical options for your forces.

How to paint the Penitent Engines Set
- Step 1: Basecoat the Model
Using a medium-sized brush, apply a basecoat of metallic paint to the Penitent Engine’s mechanical parts, such as the chassis, pistons, and weapons. For example, you can use a silver paint like Leadbelcher to achieve this.
- Step 2: Basecoat the Armor Plates
Next, focus on the armor plates of the Penitent Engine. Use a dark color, such as black or dark grey, to basecoat these areas. For example, you can use Abaddon Black to achieve a solid basecoat on the armor.
- Step 3: Highlight the Armor Plates
To create depth and detail, apply highlights to the armor plates. Use a lighter color than the basecoat, such as a medium grey. For example, you can use Dawnstone to highlight the edges and raised areas of the armor plates.
- Step 4: Paint the Cables and Tubes
Now, paint the cables and tubes on the Penitent Engine. Use a color that contrasts with the metallic basecoat. For example, you can use a bright color like Mephiston Red for the cables or a vibrant green like Moot Green for the tubes.
- Step 5: Wash the Model
Apply a wash to the entire model to add shading and depth. Use a wash that matches the color scheme of your Penitent Engine. For example, you can use a black wash like Nuln Oil for a dark and gritty look or a brown wash like Agrax Earthshade for a weathered appearance.
- Step 6: Detail the Mechanical Parts
Focus on the mechanical parts of the Penitent Engine, such as the pistons, gears, and joints. Use a small brush to pick out these details with metallic or brass colors. For example, you can use Balthasar Gold or Retributor Armour to highlight these areas.
- Step 7: Add Weathering Effects
To make the Penitent Engine look battle-worn and realistic, add weathering effects. Use techniques like dry brushing or sponge stippling with a lighter color to create chipped paint or wear on the edges. For example, you can dry brush with a silver or gunmetal color to simulate scratches and metal showing through.
- Step 8: Finish with Details and Basing
Paint the remaining details on the model, such as skulls, purity seals, or insignias, using appropriate colors. Consider adding decals or freehand designs to further personalize the model. Additionally, you can create a base for the Penitent Engine using texture paints, rocks, or other materials to match your army’s theme.
