Tutorial: How to paint The Blooded Traitor Guard from Kill Team: Moroch

In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to paint The Blooded, the Traitor Guard from Kill Team: Moroch (or Blackstone Fortress). The flexible paint scheme is easily adaptable to Chaos Cultists like the new Accursed Cultists that are up for preorder today, and to loyal Astra Militarum Guardsmen as well. I made use of a lot of the new Contrast and Shade paints to get a better feeling for them and sneaked in a few Scale75 Instant Colours as well, so this is gonna get interesting.
