Painting Warhammer 40k Squats in Camouflage Uniforms
Scale Camouflage Painting Techniques
Space Dwarfs wearing splinter pattern uniforms. These 1:55 Scale Games Workshop Squats for Warhammer 40k have been undercoated in a light sandcolour artists‘ acrylic paint. Olive Green and Earth Brown disruptive splinter pattern camouflage splotches were then painted on. The figures were washed with watered down Pelikan Sepia Drawing Ink to accentuate facial details and folds in the clothing. Once the wash had dried, the uniforms were drybrushed with yellow ochre acrylic paint. Weapons and ammunition pouches were drybrushed wrought iron and light olive green, respectively. The figure bases have been covered in a mixture of white glue, fine sand, and kitty litter stones, painted Napoleonic French Artillery Green and drybrushed Desert Sand.
The figures are wearing yellow and green battalion patches on their left breast pocket, and a panther claw regimental emblem painted on the helmet. The bald-headed troopers has a panther claw tattoo on the back of his head. Diluted Pelikan Prussian Blue Drawing Ink was used to paint this tattoo. The Squat infantry squad is defending the roof of a native adobe hut, build from Foamcore and painted with sand-textured acrylic household paint.
