Today I present you the first model from my Raven Guard Phobos Strike Team from Kill Team: Moroch, shot in front of the beautiful Space Hulk Gallowdark terrain from Kill Team: Into the Dark. I’ve also included a complete painting guide with a list of all the paints and techniques I used, so check out this post.
Primaris Infiltrators and Primaris Space Marines in Phobos-pattern power armour in general are my favourite Primaris infantry sculpts. When they received their own set of Kill Team rules in Kill Team: Moroch, I knew it was the perfect excuse to paint a unit of them. My choice was Raven Guard because Phobos troops thematically fit very well with this chapter and I love the look of the emo boys.
The model shown is an Infiltrator Veteran, which you can see from the white painted arms and his customized gun. I changed the pose, gave him a smoke grenade in his hand and used some accessories from the Raven Guard Primaris upgrade sprue, like the head and the raven talismans on his belt.
Painting-wise, I went for a chipped and battle-damaged look, using zenithal highlights, oil washes and pigments, similar to my Sons of Horus tutorial. It’s really fun to explore new painting techniques, as I’m usually a really clean painter. I watched a lof of Cult of Paint videos on YouTube, go check them out, their tutorials are perfect if you want to learn more about this style of painting.

I also made a 360° video, which you can check out over on my Instagram. Please give me a like and follow if you haven’t already, I sometimes post models a little bit earlier over there 🙂
I can’t wait to show you more of this Kill Team, as they go exploring the Gallowdark from Kill Team: Into the Dark (see my review of the box here). Let’s see how they fare, I suspect the lighter Phobos pattern suits are probably not the best for small confines boarding actions, but they’ll have to be extra sneaky to make up for it!
