How to Paint Citadel Miniatures: Fire Warriors

Muster your Fire Warriors for battle with this guide to painting the foot troops of the Tau Empire. Everything you need to prepare your new models for the tabletop.

The core troops of the Tau Empire have fantastic new models, and here is everything you need to get them ready for action. Step-by-step guides to every aspect of the models, along with different colour schemes and markings will let you customise your Fire Warriors ready to devastate your foes with brutal pulse fire.

Fire Warriors are the mainstay of the Tau military, and are respected as the backbone of the entire Tau Empire. Fire Warrior Strike Teams fill the air with searing volleys of fire from their pulse rifles and pulse carbines, cutting down swathes of the foe, while supporting fire from gun drones and drone turrets lends them even more killing power. Fire Warrior Breacher Teams instead excel in close-quarters room clearance, storming enemy fortifications as their pulse blasters spit fury. Both types of team go to war in the colours of their sept, proudly displaying the colours of inevitable conquest for all to see.

Tau Empire: Fire Warriors Painting Guide is a detailed painting guide for both Fire Warrior Strike Teams and Fire Warrior Breacher Teams. The guide explores the different techniques required to paint these units, sept colours and markings, as well as cadre and team iconography. The guides contained within the eBook cover two colour schemes: the ochre of Tau’va sept and the white of Vior’la sept.
