The Fighting Tiger Painting Guide (Original)
This page summarizes, by sabha and jatis, how to paint Fighting Tigers. As you can tell from the accompanying photographs, this is how I painted every one of my Tiger figures--over 120 of them. Painting Fighting Tigers this way makes for very cool figures but is very time-consuming; for something a bit easier (and faster), check out the simplified version.

I've described the Tactical Squad Marines (Tigers of Rudra) first (as they are the basic Fighting Tigers), then the Devastator Squad Marines (Tigers of Agni), as they have only one minor painting difference from the Tactical Marines. The Assault Squad Marines (Tigers of Kali) use the same pattern as the Tigers of Rudra but use Skull White instead of Fiery Orange or Bubonic Brown. Finally, I describe the Veterans and Terminators (Tigers of Indra), as well as the Scouts (Tigers of Puchan).
