Hi fellas it's been a while, tut tut anyhow i thought i would show you what I've been up to.
Weathers playing havoc with priming outdoors right now but I've found that if you warm the tin up on a radiator for 5 to 10 min's you get a little time for a good smooth finish.
Anyway top tip out of the way so lets get on with the miniature, I've been wanting to build and paint a badass Warsmith to lead my force of brutal Iron Warriors for a while and was just waiting of the perfect base miniature to turn up from either GW or FW, I was thinking of using Alexis Polux which i bought for the kitbash but even though he's a awesome mini he's been used/kitbashed so many times.
So then Games Workshop came up with the goods with their second Forge World miniature to be sold in their store, The Ultramarines Herald i thought fitted the bill perfectly just had to remove those U's and away i go.
The Polux kit didn't go to waste, I used his arms, shoulder pads and power fist, I also used a Techmarines Back pack and servo arm plus some tubing, A Volkite weapon and a World Eaters large chopper (brutal) as his close combat weapon, the head is from the FW tank upgrade kit. For the base i just used various bit n bobs i had laying around on my bench.
So then nearly there with this just got the head to do....skin tone drat!! not looking forward to that...well I'll see how i get on with it. Anyhow i hope you like it so far guys and i should have him all done before too long.
