Aggressor Squads are heavily-armored and mobile troops in the Space Marine armies that can effectively navigate through rough terrain. This makes them versatile soldiers who can be used as reserves to plug breaches in gun lines or to spearhead an advance. While their weaponry may not have a long range, their large-caliber bolter shells can decimate enemy charges when they get close enough to open fire.
The Aggressors have a wider and chunkier silhouette than most Primaris Space Marines due to their heavy Gravis armor. You have the choice of equipping them with auto boltstorm gauntlets or flamestorm gauntlets, and there are three sets of each.
The weapons feature pipes or belts that are fed from the backpacks, and one set of flamestorm gauntlets has retracted barrels, which makes them more effective in close combat. Additionally, if you choose the boltstorm gauntlets, the Aggressors can also take a fragstorm grenade launcher.
You can assemble 3 Aggressors or 2 Aggressors and a Sergeant, and there are six standard Aggressor heads, with respirators on the mask of those using flamestorm gauntlets. The Sergeant also has two unique head options. Flamestorm-wielding Aggressors have their own shoulder pads with larger blast shielding to protect them from the intense operating temperatures of their weapons. The kit also includes reliquaries and purity seals, with special examples for Sergeants featuring extra skulls.

How to paint the Primaris Aggressors
- Step 1: Prime with Chaos Black Primer
Begin by priming the entire miniature with Chaos Black primer. This creates a solid foundation for the subsequent paint layers and helps the colors adhere better. Allow the primer to dry completely.
- Step 2: Main Armor with Macragge Blue
Using a medium-sized brush, paint the main armor of the Aggressors with Macragge Blue. Make sure to cover the armor thoroughly, giving it a vibrant blue base.
- Step 3: Black Details with Abaddon Black
Paint the shoulders, the boltstorm gauntlets, and the fragstorm grenade launchers with Abaddon Black. Take your time to be precise with these areas.
- Step 4: Metal Parts with Leadbelcher
For the metal parts of the armor, the boltstorm gauntlets, and the fragstorm grenade launchers, use Leadbelcher. This paint gives a metallic appearance to these components.
- Step 5: Gold Details with Retributor Armour
Highlight the gold details of the armor, such as the chest eagle, shoulder pads, or weapon handles, with Retributor Armour. This paint adds a shining effect to the gold parts.
- Step 6: Parchment Parts with Screaming Skull
Use Screaming Skull to paint the parchment parts of the armor, such as the purity seals or skulls. This paint gives them an aged and parchment-like appearance.
- Step 7: Creating Depth with Nuln Oil
Apply a wash of Nuln Oil over the entire miniature. This will settle into the recesses and details, creating depth and shadows. It adds a weathered look to the Aggressors.
- Step 8: Highlighting the Blue Armor with Calgar Blue
Use Calgar Blue to highlight the edges and corners of the blue armor with thin lines. This step makes the blue parts stand out and adds depth.
- Step 9: Highlighting the Black Details with Eshin Grey
For the black details, like the shoulders and gauntlets, use Eshin Grey to create highlights. Apply thin lines along the edges and corners to add depth.
- Step 10: Highlighting the Metal Parts with Stormhost Silver
To make the metal parts shine, use Stormhost Silver. Highlight the edges and corners of these areas with thin lines. This gives a metallic gleam to the Aggressors’ weaponry.
- Step 11: Highlighting the Gold Details with Liberator Gold
To make the gold details even more striking, use Liberator Gold. Highlight the edges and corners of these parts with thin lines. This adds a brilliant sheen to the gold ornaments.
- Step 12: Varnishing with Munitorum
To protect your meticulous work and give your Primaris Aggressors a polished finish, apply Munitorum Varnish evenly over the entire miniature. This matte varnish not only safeguards your paint job but also provides a clean and non-reflective appearance. Let it dry completely before proudly displaying your Aggressors on the tabletop. Enjoy the final results of your painting journey!
