Hellbrute Weekend – Part 5

That’s it for the evening. Not bad for an hour and a half’s work. Still a long way to go!

Once I saw the complexity of the model, I secretly knew I wouldn’t get it done in a weekend. I think I gave it a good go and I enjoyed every minute of it.

I’ll keep plugging away over the week, hopefully it’ll yield results sooner rather than later. Can’t wait to see how it looks finished!

Hellbrute Weekend – Part 4

Today hasn’t gone quite as I’d planned (Doctor Who marathon with my wife this morning didn’t help) however I’ve started the painting process.

Not too far along, standard black undercoat spray followed by a base of Macragge Blue spray and I’ve just started layering up with a drybrush of Caledor Sky.

I’m going to work on it for another hour or so but I have a meeting first thing so it’s an early night for this Warmonger.

Wow, that took a bit longer than expected! This wasn’t really a tricky build since, mentioned earlier, the instructions were top notch. However the Power Flail had so many small fiddly parts I had to take things slowly.

Right now I’m waiting for the plastic glue to completely cure then, once I’ve picked up my wife, I’ll get the beastie undercoated.

It’s 16:23 and I’ve just finished assembling the main body of the Hellbrute. This is a simply amazing kit, amazingly detailed, extraordinarily complex with 26 pieces thus far used, but it goes together so easily. This is helped by a genuinely useful construction guide.

Here’s the progress so far.

Now, quick break to stretch my legs then onto the arms 🙂

Today I picked up the new Hellbrute kit from my local GW. The plan is to build and paint it over the weekend with minimal distractions. I’ll try to post the occasional update as I go along.

First of all, here are the three sprues.

As with all recent GW products, these are absolutely packed with components and appear to be sensibly laid out, although I’ll be able to report more fully as I build the kit.

What I wasn’t expecting was a redesigned transfer sheet.

I don’t know how much, if any, of this ill use during this project but I’m sure it’ll come in useful further down the line.

That’s it for now. It’s about to turn 15:00 here and I have to leave at 17:45 to pick up my wife. Let’s see how much I can get done!
