Embody the power of Chaos with War Dog-class Knights, a fierce hunting pack that prowls ahead of their larger counterparts, striking down enemy outriders and guarding their colossal masters. Among these ferocious walkers, the fearless War Dog Stalker stands out as a pack alpha, leading carefully-planned attacks and annihilating foes with deadly firepower and crushing melee strikes.
This multipart plastic kit allows you to build two War Dog-class Knights, choosing from a mix of War Dog Stalkers, War Dog Karnivores, or War Dog Brigands. The War Dog Stalker, a flexible Lords of War option, offers deadly support at any range for your Chaos Knights army or can serve as a wandering Dreadblade pack for other Chaos forces. Equipped with either a tank-melting daemonbreath spear or an infantry-shredding avenging chaincannon, and a crushing slaughterclaw or roaring reaper chaintalon for melee combat, Stalkers also come with your choice of a carapace-mounted diabolus heavy stubber or havoc multi-launcher. With the ability to customize their poses, armor, and unique faceplates and accessories, these Stalkers are a rewarding painting project for any hobbyist.

How to paint the War Dog Stalkers set
- Step 1: Priming
Start by priming the War Dog Stalkers with Chaos Black spray primer. This will provide a good base for the paint and enhance the dark, menacing appearance.
- Step 2: Red Armor
Using a medium-sized brush, carefully paint the armor plates of the War Dog Stalkers with a bright red color, such as Evil Sunz Scarlet. Apply thin coats to achieve smooth coverage and allow each layer to dry before adding the next one.
- Step 3: Metallic Details
Now, focus on the arms and leg pistons of the War Dog Stalkers. Use a metallic paint, like Leadbelcher, to accentuate these parts and give them a metallic sheen. Take your time to paint these details neatly, as they will add a touch of sophistication to the models.
- Step 4: Yellow Symbols and Rockets
For the yellow symbols and rockets on top of the War Dog Stalkers, use a yellow paint such as Flash Gitz Yellow. Carefully paint the symbols on the armor and the rockets on the back of the models. This bright color will create a striking contrast against the red armor.
- Step 5: Black Details
To finish off the details, use a small brush to add black accents, using Abaddon Black, to certain areas, such as vents, cables, and other small parts. This will provide depth and enhance the overall appearance of the models.
- Step 6: Final Touches
Inspect your War Dog Stalkers and make any necessary touch-ups to ensure a clean and well-painted look. Check for any missed spots or areas that need refinement.
- Step 7: Varnishing (Optional)
If you want to protect your hard work and add a glossy or matte finish, consider applying a clear varnish over the painted models. This step is optional but can help preserve the paint job.
