Termagants, the relentless predators of the Tyranid swarm, unleash deadly assaults in massive swarms, utilizing their symbiotic weapons to spit living ammunition. Accompanying them are the Ripper Swarms, writhing masses of teeth and flesh that voraciously consume anything in their path.

How to paint the Termagants and Ripper Swarm using the paints included in the set

  1. Step 1: Basecoat
    Start by applying a basecoat of Corax White to all the Termagants and Ripper Swarm models. This will provide a light and neutral base color for further painting.
  2. Step 2: Skin
    Use Wraithbone to paint the skin areas of the Termagants. Apply thin, even layers to achieve smooth coverage. This will give the Termagants a bone-like appearance.
  3. Step 3: Claws and Gun Details
    For the claws and gun details of the Termagants, use Thunderhawk Blue. This vibrant blue color will add a striking contrast to the overall scheme.
  4. Step 4: Carapace and Chitin Armor
    Paint the carapace and chitin armor of the Termagants and Ripper Swarm with Naggaroth Night. This deep purple shade will create a visually appealing contrast with the white and blue tones.
  5. Step 5: Carapace Shading
    Apply Magos Purple to shade the carapace areas. This will add depth and definition to the intricate details of the models.
  6. Step 6: Bases
    Apply Armageddon Dust to the bases of the models. This will create a textured and earthy surface for them to stand on. You can also glue some rocks or grass to the base to add to the scenery.
  7. Step 7: Varnish (optional)
    Once the paint has dried, consider applying a varnish to protect the paint job and give the models a finished look.
