Raptors, the terror from above. These Chaos Space Marines strike fear into the hearts of their enemies as they descend upon the battlefield with unmatched speed and deadly precision.

The attention to detail is astounding, as the warped influence of the Warp is evident throughout their metal-rimmed armor. The shoulder pads boast emergent grills, while cables boldly jut from their armor, giving an otherworldly appearance. To further accentuate their menacing presence, teeth protrude from various surfaces around the rim of their jump packs, a reminder of the relentless savagery that accompanies their every move.
Equipped for swift and brutal engagements, the Chaos Space Marine Raptors carry bolt pistols and cruel chainswords. These lethal weapons ensure that they are prepared for both ranged and close-quarters combat, leaving a trail of destruction in their wake.
Whether it’s swift reconnaissance or brutal close-quarters combat, the Raptors are masters of aerial warfare, always striking from unexpected angles. Join their ranks if you dare, and witness the true power of Chaos in the skies.

How to paint the Raptors set
- Step 1: Basecoat the model
Apply a basecoat of your chosen color to the Raptors armor, such as Chaos Black or Abaddon Black, using a brush or spray paint.
- Step 2: Highlight the armor
Using a lighter shade, like Dawnstone or Eshin Grey, carefully apply highlights to the edges and raised areas of the armor to add depth and dimension.
- Step 3: Paint the details
Use a small brush to paint the various details on the model, such as the grills, cables, and teeth. You can use Leadbelcher for metallic parts and any color of your choice for the teeth, such as Screamer Pink or Rakarth Flesh.
- Step 4: Add color to the jump packs
Select a vibrant color, such as Warpstone Glow or Mephiston Red, to paint the jump packs. Apply several thin coats to achieve smooth and even coverage.
- Step 5: Paint the weapons
Choose a color for the Raptors bolt pistols and chainswords. For the pistols, you can use colors like Stegadon Scale Green or Khorne Red, and for the chainswords, try colors like Balthasar Gold or Averland Sunset.
- Step 6: Detail the bases
Paint the battlefield debris on the bases using shades of brown and gray, such as Dryad Bark or Mechanicus Standard Grey. You can also add additional details like grass or rocks to enhance the bases further.
- Step 7: Apply washes
Apply washes, such as Nuln Oil or Agrax Earthshade, to the entire model to add depth and shading. This will help bring out the details and give a more realistic appearance to the Raptors.
- Step 8: Varnish the model
To protect your painted model and give it a finished look, apply a coat of varnish. You can use a matte varnish for a non-shiny finish or a gloss varnish for a more reflective appearance.
