The Possessed embody savage and relentless slaughter, a fusion of Chaos daemons and Astartes warriors in a sacrilegious union. Their bodies twisted and mutated by otherworldly parasites, these armoured monstrosities move with an unnerving fluidity, shrugging off deadly attacks as they unleash a grotesque array of talons, jaws, and vestigial wings, indulging in a macabre frenzy of violence.
This multipart plastic kit allows you to assemble five Possessed, formidable close combat fighters adorned with repulsive mutations such as tentacles, claws, and bladed limbs. With various options for customization, including alternative heads, daemonic appendages, interchangeable backpacks, and additional accessories, each model can be uniquely tailored to reflect their horrific nature. Even within larger units or multiple squads of these half-daemon abominations, no two models will look alike. The kit also includes an optional Chaos icon, granting a Possessed Champion the ability to invoke the sinister blessings of the Ruinous Powers.

How to paint the Possessed set
- Step 1: Prime the models
Start by applying a thin, even coat of primer to your Possessed models. Use Chaos Black spray or any black primer of your choice. This will create a smooth surface for the paint and help it adhere better.
- Step 2: Basecoat the models
Using a medium-sized brush, apply a basecoat to your Possessed models. For the fleshy parts, use Rakarth Flesh, and for armor or metallic areas, use colors like Abaddon Black, Leadbelcher or Retributor Armor. Make sure to cover all the relevant areas evenly.
- Step 3: Shade the models
Apply a shade wash to the models to enhance the details and add depth. Use a shade like Agrax Earthshade or Nuln Oil. Apply it carefully to the recessed areas and allow it to dry completely.
- Step 4: Highlight the models
With a smaller brush, highlight the raised areas of the models. Use a lighter color such as Pallid Wych Flesh for the flesh, and Stormhost Silver or Liberator Gold for metallic parts. Apply these highlights sparingly to create contrast and definition.
- Step 5: Paint the details
Switch to an even smaller brush and focus on painting the smaller details of your Possessed models. Use colors like Abaddon Black for the eyes, Screamer Pink for tongues or mutations, and any other colors of your choice to highlight specific elements. Take your time and be precise.
- Step 6: Add additional effects
To make your Possessed models stand out, consider adding additional effects like blood splatters or glowing eyes. For blood splatters, use colors like Blood for the Blood God, and for glowing eyes, choose a bright color such as Moot Green.
- Step 7: Base the models
Apply texture paint to the bases of your Possessed models. Use Stirland Mud or any brown texture paint of your choice. Once dry, you can drybrush the base with a lighter color like Ushabti Bone to highlight the texture and create a realistic look.
- Step 8: Varnish the models
Protect your paint job by applying a layer of varnish. Choose either a matte or gloss varnish based on your preference. This will ensure your models are well-preserved and provide a protective finish.
