This multi-part plastic kit offers an array of components to assemble a formidable unit of 10 Rubric Marines. Each can be equipped with either Inferno boltguns, capable of unleashing destructive volleys of warp-infused bolts, or warpflamers, unleashing torrents of flame that bathe the enemy in pure chaotic energy. Additionally, the kit allows for customization options, with one model able to wield a soulreaper cannon for devastating firepower, one carrying an Icon of Flame to instill fear in the hearts of foes, and the option to assemble an Aspiring Sorcerer. The Aspiring Sorcerer wields a force stave, a potent melee weapon, and can be armed with either an Inferno bolt pistol or warpflame pistol to complement their psychic mastery.
These Rubric Marines, trapped in a paradoxical state between life and death, represent an enduring and menacing force within the ranks of traitorous Space Marines. Despite their cursed existence, their loyalty to their malevolent cause remains unyielding.

How to paint the Rubric Marines set
- Step 1: Prime the Model
Apply a thin, even coat of black primer to the entire Rubric Marine using a brush or spray primer. This will create a smooth surface for the paint to adhere to.
- Step 2: Basecoat
Using a medium-sized brush, apply a basecoat of blue paint to the Rubric Marine’s armor. For example, you can use a color like Macragge Blue to cover the majority of the model.
- Step 3: Gold Trim
Using a small brush, carefully paint the intricate gold trim on the armor using a metallic gold paint. For example, you can use a color like Retributor Armor to highlight the edges and details.
- Step 4: Red Details
Using a fine brush, paint any red details on the model, such as the eye lenses or decorative elements. For example, you can use a color like Mephiston Red to add vibrant accents to the model.
- Step 5: Silver Weapons
Paint the weapons, such as the Inferno boltguns, using a metallic silver paint. For example, you can use a color like Ironbreaker to give the weapons a sleek and deadly appearance.
- Step 6: Washes
Apply a wash, such as a brown or sepia shade, to the entire model to add depth and shading. This will help bring out the details and create a more realistic look. For example, you can use a wash like Agrax Earthshade.
- Step 7: Details and Highlights
Using a small brush, carefully paint any additional details on the model, such as the symbols or runes, using contrasting colors. Add highlights to the edges of the armor and other raised areas using a lighter shade of the base color. For example, you can use a lighter blue color like Alaitoc Blue for highlighting.
- Step 8: Base Decoration
Paint the base of the model to represent the environment. You can use colors like brown or gray for a gritty urban base or shades of green or brown for a more natural terrain. Add details like rocks, grass, or debris for added realism.
- Step 9: Varnish
Apply a matte varnish over the entire model to protect the paint job and reduce any unwanted shine. This will also help to seal and protect the miniature.
