What armies to paint with Knight-Questor Flesh
The Knight-Questor Flesh paint is a versatile paint that can be used to paint a wide variety of armies in the Warhammer 40K universe. Here are three armies that would particularly benefit from using this paint:
- Imperial Guard: The Imperial Guard is known for its large, heavily-armoured soldiers and tanks. Knight-Questor Flesh is the perfect paint for basecoating the skin of the soldiers, making them look realistic and human-like. It’s also great for painting the machinery and guns of the tanks, giving them a smooth and consistent finish.
- Adeptus Mechanicus: The Adeptus Mechanicus is an army that is heavily focused on machinery and robotic constructs. Knight-Questor Flesh can be used to paint the flesh of the Tech-priests and Skitarii, making them look like they’re made of organic material. It’s also perfect for painting the various machines and guns that the Adeptus Mechanicus use, giving them a consistent and cohesive look.
- Chaos Space Marines: The Chaos Space Marines are known for their corrupted and twisted appearance. Knight-Questor Flesh can be used to paint the skin of the Chaos Space Marines, making them look like they’ve been mutated by the powers of Chaos. It can also be used to paint the various details on their armour, weapons, and vehicles, giving them a gritty and corrupted look.
I made this decision based on the knowledge that these armies have a lot of machinery and soldiers in them, which can be painted by using Knight-Questor Flesh paint. It’s a versatile paint which can be used for base coating and achieve realistic, human-like skin on the soldiers and a smooth and consistent finish on the machinery and guns.
