The Primogenitor Returns

Now that my glue and Green Stuff supplies are replenished, I’ve been able to spend a bit of time this afternoon assembling my Finecast Fabius Bile.

I was very impressed how easily this went together. Pruning all the flash took a little under an hour and only a couple of parts (The Rod of Torment and the vials on top of The Chirurgeon) needed straightening with my wife’s hair dryer. Everything fit together perfectly without any joins needing Green Stuff and it was fully assembled in a little over twenty minutes.

This model has definitely been improved by the recasting in Finecast. The detail’s crisp, there are no air bubbles, and nothing needed pinning.

Can’t wait to start painting it 🙂

The Best Laid Plans…

As the day of The Move trundles ever closer with all the inevitability of a Baneblade, I’m getting less and less time to devote to anything remotely hobby-related.

This afternoon, after a mammoth trip to the local recycling centre, I decided to reward myself by building and painting a miniature I’ve been looking forward to for ages, my Finecast Fabius Bile. However, due to a staggering example of my ineptitude, this was all I managed to get done.

Y’see, while I ensured I had a nice sharp blade and sufficient Green Stuff just in case, I completely failed to check to see if I had any super glue left! By the time I realised my error, all the hobby shops and DIY centres were closed so I decided to see if I could make any headway with my Berserker Rhino.

If you compare it to my last post you most likely won’t see much difference, however I spent a good ninety minutes tidying it up and adding a bit more detail to the skulls, gunner and Dirge Caster. I’m also going to experiment with the Blood for The Blood God technical paint that I recently purchased once it’s nearer completion.

Anyway, that’s all for now. I’d better get on and pack a couple more boxes before I turn in.
