I am back to painting half finished projects from the pile of glory (shame). I have three Obliterators waiting to get done, but I thought I would get this fella done first, as he was built and converted as one model, with no sub assemblies. It was a bit of a pain to get to all the nooks and crannies, but pretty happy with him!
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.
This is the second, of three, small Chaos Space Marine squad for my Word Bearers. I have tried to keep up with the balance of quality and quantity with these guys. So have built them before painting them, and tried not to worry that they aren’t “as good as I can get them”.
Quick “boy band” pic with them on a white background! 😀
I recently finished a Greater Possessed for my Word Bearers. I am quite keen to make an army with a lot of Possessed marines in my army, but there are rumours flying about of a new box set for them, so holding off with the current models just in case!
I had a minor collision with another car just before xmas (he smashed into me!), which knackered my back and hand a little (and my car), so I haven’t been able to paint much at all. I have however managed to finish off a squad of terminators when I have managed to work through it.
