How to Paint a Skitarii Ranger with Speed Paint - Forgeworld Ryza Tutorial

How-to paint a Skitarii Ranger with Speed Paint - Forgeworld Ryza Tutorial

Here's a quick, straightforward how-to paint video showing how I painted a Forgeworld Ryza Skitarii Ranger. The technique is simple, and a big pro for me is its quickness. In no way is this technical and is designed to get paint on models and looks good from 3FT. 

Please be warned that it is quick and tabletop-ready only. No Golden Demon work here.

Ryza Lore

Ryza, also known as the "Furnace of Shackled Stars," is an Imperial Forge World of the Adeptus Mechanicus that is located in the Segmentum Ultima of the galaxy. The planet is home to the Titan Legion called the Legio Crucius, known also as "The Warmongers."

During the Horus Heresy, a great battle took place on this Forge World, known as the Defence of Ryza. Forces of the Dark Mechanicum, led by the Traitor Titan Legions and their Chaos Knight allies fought against the Loyalist servants of the Omnissiah.

Countless Titans and Knights fell on both sides. Eventually, the Loyalists were able to drive back the Traitors, only to be bombarded by a Chaos Warfleet from orbit. There was little to celebrate, as the guardians of Ryza tasted pyrrhic victory.

The Forge World of Ryza has since been plunged once more into the abyss of war in the late 41st Millennium. The planet was once famous for supplying the Imperium with magnetic containment fields and Plasma Weapons -- the Leman Russ Executioner and Stormblade super-heavy tank were born within its armour cradles.

However, since Ryza found itself bearing the brunt of not one but the two major Ork WAAAGH!s of Grax and Rarguts in 925.M41, the rivers of war materiel that flood its manufactoria canals now lead only to its own defenders -- the planet has turned every cannon, stubber, and bullet it produces to an all-out battle for survival.

In truth the tech-priests of Ryza welcome the opportunity to see their creations in action first-hand, unleashing their most devastating weapons upon the foe.

Despite the preponderance of ordnance and experimental weapons, much of the fighting on Ryza has come down to close quarters. The Forge World's defenders -- from Skitarii to hulking Kastelan Robots -- have all earned a reputation as particularly fierce combatants.

Ryza's Skitarii, alongside the Warmongers of the Legio Crucius and the Astra Militarum's Catachan Jungle Fighters regiments, have taken righteous pleasure in turning Ryza's most devastating weapons upon the Orks of WAAAGH!s Grax and Rarguts.

However, after forty standard years of warfare the Orks eventually fell into disarray and were finally wiped out by the Forge World's armies following the death of Warlord Grax under the guns of the Warlord Titan Pugnus Vindictae.
