How to paint the Tyranid Warriors set

  1. Step 1: Basecoat
    Begin by applying a basecoat to the Tyranid Warriors’ chitin plates using a suitable color like Naggaroth Night or a similar vibrant hue. Use a medium-sized brush to ensure smooth and even coverage on the larger surfaces.
  2. Step 2: Skin and Details
    Paint the exposed skin areas and finer details of the Tyranid Warriors using a contrasting color like Pallid Wych Flesh or a complementary shade. Use a small brush for precision when painting the intricate details such as claws, fangs, or eyes.
  3. Step 3: Carapace Highlights
    Add highlights to the carapace by using a lighter shade of the base color or a brighter tone like Xereus Purple or Genestealer Purple. Apply these highlights selectively to the raised areas, edges, and contours to create depth and emphasize the texture of the exoskeleton.
  4. Step 4: Bio-Weapons
    Paint the bio-weapons of the Tyranid Warriors with contrasting colors to make them stand out. For example, you can use vibrant shades like Mephiston Red or White Scar for flesh hooks, or a toxic green like Niblet Green for venom cannons. Apply thin layers to build up the color gradually.
  5. Step 5: Detailing
    Add additional details to the Tyranid Warriors, such as highlighting the eyes with a bright color like Flash Gitz Yellow or adding a glossy effect to the mouthparts using Ardcoat. Take your time to bring out the unique features and character of each model.
  6. Step 6: Basing
    Paint the base of the Tyranid Warriors to match your desired theme or battlefield environment. Add texture using sand or small rocks and paint it accordingly. Enhance the base further by adding grass tufts or other scenic elements for a finished look.
  7. Step 7: Varnish
    Once you are satisfied with your paint job, protect it by applying a layer of varnish. This will ensure the longevity of your work and protect it from wear and tear. Choose a matte, gloss, or satin varnish based on your preferred finish.
