The Typhus Corrosion paint from Citadel Colour is a versatile, acrylic-based paint that provides a basecoat of mottled, rusty green and brown hues. This paint provides excellent coverage and is a great choice for painting the rusted, worn metal surfaces of miniatures and terrain pieces in the Warhammer 40K universe. Its pigments are carefully chosen to provide a natural and weathered appearance, making it an ideal foundation for a beginner’s palette of colors for miniature painting. The matte finish adds a subtle touch of realism, giving the paint a timeless quality that evokes the grimdark atmosphere of the Warhammer 40K setting.
What armies to paint with Typhus Corrosion
When it comes to painting Warhammer 40K armies with Typhus Corrosion, there are several factions that would benefit greatly from its eerie, corroded appearance. Here are three popular options:
- The Death Guard: This faction is known for their decay and disease-ridden appearance, making Typhus Corrosion the perfect choice for painting their armor, weapons, and machinery. Its matte finish will provide a perfect foundation for highlighting and adding depth to their sickly appearance.
- The Nurgle Daemons: Similar to the Death Guard, Nurgle Daemons are also associated with decay and corruption. Typhoon Corrosion would work great for adding a touch of decay to their grotesque bodies and the plague-ridden environment they inhabit.
- The Chaos Space Marines: The Chaos Space Marines are a diverse faction, with each legion having its own unique aesthetic. However, the use of Typhus Corrosion can add a common thread of decay and corruption to the otherwise disparate groups. The paint can be used to weather their armor, highlight the details on their weapons, and give the illusion of rusted machinery.
These choices were based on the color’s ability to highlight the dark and corrupted tone of the Warhammer 40K universe as well as how well it complemented the color schemes of the various factions.
This paint may be used for more than just these three armies; in fact, it’s a terrific place for beginners to start if they want to try their hand at giving their miniatures a spooky, post-apocalyptic appearance.
