Work continues on the boy’s T’au army. He had this pre built crisis suit donated to him by his uncle, so decided to paint it up, so that it doesn’t languish on the pile of shame. The weapons are magnetised, which is not something I personally like to do, but it did help with the painting side of things!
I have completed another miniature for my son’s T’au army. Odd model this, why does he have a sheathed knife raised into the sky? There have been some odd poses in many a wargaming miniature, but this is very weird.
I have painted up a second squad of Scarab Occult Terminators for my Thousand Sons army.
As with most projects these days, I built these models before painting them, and if I am honest, this was a mistake. They are such highly detailed models, especially when it comes to painting the helms, that they have suffered a bit. I am not saying they look awful, just not happy with them in bits.
As a general rule, I avoid painting resin miniatures. This isn’t because the designs are bad, but I find that if they aren’t vehicles with large flat surfaces, the resin just can’t handle the level of detail.
However, when Argel Tal came out, I knew I had to paint this fella. He is the first Possessed Chaos Space Marine, and his character is amazing too in the Heresy.
Some areas of the miniature hold up quite well, but sadly I still found myself frustrated with it towards the end. Would be great if Forge World could go full plastic.
