I love the Rainbow Warriors. They’re about as retro 40k as it gets, they have a perfectly silly name, and seeing all the modern revivals of Zoats and Ambulls gives me hope that we’ll see this Chapter return too.

I used the bodies of the Primaris Marines from the Dark Imperium set with a few conversions. Mk 6 Corvus, or Beaky, helmets for the entire team, and a Thunder Hammer for the Sergeant.

There’s a fair amount of freehand on each Marine, which was a lot of fun to add. The stripes along the helmets were a must and add a nice splash of colour. I also enjoyed painting the amethyst stones on the bases, using a few purple glazes overtop a white basecoat and then a glossy varnish.
