I did some more work on The God of Taint which I’d like to show you.
The other day I mentioned the statue I had put together and filled with putty. I attached the statue to the back of the Monster with glue and bicarb (It’s just seems to hold things more firmly than just super glue). I also lashed on a chain (a real one).
My fingers in the shot above give you some idea how big this bad boy is. My hand is only clasped around one of his legs and please note that I don’t have tiny Elven hands haha. I have big awkward hands haha. As you can see in the picture above I have holes to fill and I’m actually a long way away from finishing the build.
The Lord of Taint is actually the newer version of Fabius Bile. I always wanted the older one but never got around to getting him the new one is just as good, if not better in my humble opinion. As I love the model so much I didn’t do much in the way of converting him apart from giving him a mechanical left art. I might add a shoulder pad to the mechanical arm too as it looks a bit skinny compared the right arm/shoulder. Really cool model but the backpack and long spindly tool arms were a little tricky to put together.
I think Fabius really suits being on this podium and riding this monster.
Tonight I hope to tinker more and will be adding some bits and pieces from the Warcry Terrain kits from Games Workshop.
Imperial Rebel Ork Podcast
Episode 31 of my humble podcast is up and running on all of the usual podcast platforms.
I’d asked the question… Whats better, Metal or Plastic miniatures?
I was quite overwhelmed by the response on here (The Blog) and on Instagram and a good chunk of the show is relaying everyone opinion which was fun.
One BIG question that came out of the episode, for me, was why is metal EASIER to paint? Is there some kind of scientific evidence of this? I really like painting Metal minis more than I do plastic now and I can’t explain why. A lot of people said a similar thing. So what is it? What is the reason metal is nicer to paint?
Thanks for listening and thanks for reading. Enjoy your weekend.
