Badab War: Fire Hawks Terminators

Continuing with the Badab War theme, I painted up a squad of Fire Hawks terminators to go against my Mantis Warriors. The heavy weapon is missing because I lost the heavy flamer arm and am waiting for a replacement which my friend will be giving me. Until then, here are the other four members of the squad ready for the table. The Fire Hawk emblems will be added once I get some printed up on decal paper.

I am really happy with the way these came out. I love the color scheme and the process of getting the red was really easy and enjoyable to paint. I used a base coat of red oxide spray primer and then washed the model in GW Nuln Oil. Fast and easy.

Hope you enjoy!

The scheme is based on the Forgeworld Badab War book version of the Fire Hawks scheme.


  1. These look gorgeous. I wasn't able to replicate the colours back in the day when I tried, so I'm totally jelous! :D

  2. Thanks! I used a red oxide spray primer from Ace Hardware (not sure if you have any of those near you) but I imagine any red oxide primer will work. I washed with GW Nuln Oil then highlighted with GW Squig Orange.
