Kroot Farstalkers are experienced explorers and savvy mercenaries, roaming the galaxy in search of exotic prey and plunder. Farstalker Kinbands act as scouts for wandering Kroot Warsphere ships, seeking out fresh employers and profitable warzones under the command of a skilled Kill-broker – equal parts wily negotiator and keen tactician. Armed with sturdy hunting weapons and strange alien weaponry – taken as loot and payment alike – these stealthy gene-hunters stalk the battlefield, springing deadly ambushes to bring in a worthy bounty.
This multipart plastic kit builds a Farstalker Kinband of 10 veteran Kroot mercenaries, accompanied by two savage Kroot Hounds. These miniatures can be used as Farstalker Kinband operatives in games of Kill Team, or fielded with T'au Empire armies in games of Warhammer 40,000. This rag-tag pack of hardened mercenaries can be built with a huge variety of heads, weapons, and accessories – including bizarre alien armaments like the Dvorgite skinner and Londaxi tribalest – allowing you to assemble specialists such as the bionic Cold-blood, cunning Stalker, bird-taming Tracker, and more.
This set comprises 142 plastic components, and is supplied with 10x Citadel 28.5mm Round Bases, 1x Citadel 28mm Round Base, and 1x Citadel 32mm Round Base. These miniatures are supplied unpainted and require assembly – we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel Colour paints.
Games Workshop have two broad methods for painting their models. Both are entirely viable options, though have significant differences in the paints required (detailed below). You can find all of the required paints in the 'recommended paint' section below, whather you simply want to get it out onto the tabletop ASAP (i.e. 'Battle Ready'), or want to take your time and make it a masterpiece (i.e. 'Parade Ready'):
1. Classic Method - uses acrylic paints to build layers of colour and depth. Usually topped off with a shade paint to really make the shadows pop. Probably the most beginner friendly method as mistakes are often easy to fix.
2. Contast Method - uses ink-like contrast painsts which sink into recesses, providing depth in highlights and shadows with a single layer of paint. It can take some practise to get this method to look great, but it's highly satisfying when it does work. Less forgiving when mistakes happen, though arguably the quicker method of the two options.s
