Ok, this is part of Project Rolling too…
Peggy is my Mother in-law. A wonderful lady who is breast cancer survivor…
Dicewraith asked me to paint a Siege Animantrax for his Breast Cancer Brawl. There is no way I could say no.
When I first opened the twins I found some parts problems. I am very happy to say that PP got me replacement faster than I expected. So, I can get started earlier than I expected.
Both of the twin Reavers had problems. One had the incomplete casting on the cones. Both of them had chips out the sides.
I was also missing one of the pikes for the pikemen.
All I did was fill out this form. A few days later I got the ones I needed. Take the time to give them some photos. It seems to help.
I found a few small places to clean up mold marks. Not a lot, I must have spent less than an hour on the twins.
I made sure I tested the fit of every part before I did any assembling. I don’t like gaps in models. I pulled out some Blue/yellow -> green, two part green stuff. Mix it up, roll it into a long thin string.
First I did the legs. All the legs are different and none will fit into the wrong place. Good to know, I could certainly screw it up otherwise.
The gun tower was next. It has a very strange shape that fits well into the body. There are three resin lumps that have to be trimmed, pretty obvious. Strange that Skorne never got a how to assemble article on the PP web page. I like to think other faction players need instructions, Skorne player don’t need any help.
The rear tower doesn’t have large area to glue it. I drilled and glued one pin for support.
Tomorrow I will trim and sand it.
Not a huge amount of stuff done, but I finish the Descent plastic stuff today. Tomorrow I will clearcoat them and get to work on the twins.
I have not attached the guns, top of the rear tower, side armor, tail or head yet. One thing at a time…
I will take the riders and pin their feet, paint them before attaching.
I am still debating about attaching the side armor and the rear tower top before I paint the body. I plan on painting the head then gluing the armor to the head and painting that..
So tomorrow I should make some real progress.
Till next time,
Just do it..
