The Scout Sentinel, a key member of the Sentinel family, features open cockpits and augur devices that enable its pilots to effortlessly survey the enemy, while the combination of lighter armor and enhanced gyro-stabilizers allows for agile traversal across even the most treacherous terrains. This dexterity grants the Scout Sentinel the ability to bring heavy weaponry to bear from unexpected angles, catching foes off guard and disrupting their plans, making it a valuable addition to any Astra Militarum army.
Constructed from high-quality multipart plastic, this kit allows you to assemble your very own Scout Sentinel – a formidable light walker boasting a blend of speed and firepower. With a plethora of customization options, you can arm your Sentinel to fulfill any role on the battlefield. Choose from an impressive array of weapons including the autocannon, heavy flamer, missile launcher, multi-laser, or plasma cannon, tailoring your walker to meet the specific demands of each mission. Enhance its melee capabilities with a poseable Sentinel chainsaw, and increase its firepower with a hunter-killer missile. Furthermore, the kit provides an assortment of cosmetic options, such as a searchlight and smoke launchers, stowage and spare equipment racks, extra fuel canisters, and four distinct heads for the exposed pilot, allowing you to add personal touches and ensure your Sentinel stands out on the battlefield.
Alternatively, this versatile kit also offers the option to construct an Armoured Sentinel, featuring an enclosed cockpit for added protection. While sacrificing some speed, the Armoured Sentinel compensates with enhanced durability, making it an ideal choice for operating in the most unforgiving warzones where survivability is paramount.

How to paint the Scout Sentinel set
- Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
Before you begin, make sure you have all the necessary supplies. You’ll need a Scout Sentinel model, Citadel Colour paints, paintbrushes (small and medium sizes), water for rinsing brushes, and a palette for mixing paints.
- Step 2: Prime Your Model
Start by priming your Scout Sentinel model. This will create a base coat that helps the paint adhere better. Use a black or grey primer spray for a solid foundation.
- Step 3: Basecoat the Armor
Apply the basecoat color to the armor of the Scout Sentinel. For example, you can use Macragge Blue for a blue color scheme. Thin your paint with water and use a medium-sized brush to apply smooth and even coats. Apply multiple thin coats if needed, allowing each coat to dry before applying the next.
- Step 4: Paint the Details
Next, paint the details of the model using smaller brushes. For example, use Leadbelcher for metallic parts like the weapons and joints. Use Mephiston Red for any red accents on the model, such as lights or markings. Take your time and be careful with your brushwork to ensure neat and precise lines.
- Step 5: Wash for Depth
To add depth and shading to your model, apply a wash. Use a wash like Nuln Oil for the metallic areas and Agrax Earthshade for the blue areas. Apply the wash to the recesses and crevices, allowing it to flow and settle. This will create shadows and enhance the details of the model.
- Step 6: Highlights
To make the model pop, add highlights to the raised areas. For example, use lighter shades of blue like Altdorf Guard Blue or Fenrisian Grey to highlight the edges and raised surfaces of the armor. Use a small brush and a steady hand to carefully apply the highlights, focusing on the areas that catch the most light.
- Step 7: Base and Finish
Lastly, paint the base of the model. You can use textures paints like Astrogranite or Armageddon Dust for a realistic ground effect. Add some drybrushing with lighter shades to bring out the texture. Then, you can add additional details like grass tufts or rocks for extra realism.
