The Gauss Blaster Green paint from Citadel Colour is a vibrant and highly pigmented acrylic paint that is perfect for miniature painting. It is a base coat color that is ideal for creating a foundation for other colors to be layered on top of. The matt finish gives a natural and realistic look to the miniatures. The coverage is excellent, allowing the painter to achieve a smooth and consistent finish even with just a single coat. This paint is a great option for beginner painters, as it provides a strong foundation for an army palette.
What Xenos Armies to paint with Gauss Blaster Green
- The Necrons are a faction in the Warhammer 40K universe known for their metallic, robotic appearance. Gauss Blaster Green would be a great choice for painting the Necron’s armor and machinery as it provides a vibrant and metallic look to the models, making them stand out on the battlefield. It is a great color to use as a base coat for other metallic colors.
- The T’au Empire are a faction known for their sleek and advanced technology. Gauss Blaster Green would be a great choice for painting their tanks, guns and machinery as it would give a sense of technological advancement and energy to the models.
- The Genestealer Cults are a faction known for their eerie and otherworldly appearance. Gauss Blaster Green would be a great choice for painting their carapace, chitin and other organic parts of the models. It provides a vibrant and otherworldly look to the models, fitting perfectly with the theme of the faction.
In conclusion, I chose these armies based on aesthetics and the faction’s theme. Gauss Blaster Green would contrast the colors and tones of the models and draw attention to them. Necrons for their metallic appearance, the T’au Empire for their slick, cutting-edge technology, and Genestealer Cults for their unsettling, alien visage.
