We’ve* got some free time here at TPS Towers** so we’re now experimenting on Twitch! (see the purple logo to the right!) Yes, due to various recent conditions and situations, it’s high time to toss Tiny Plastic Spacemen on the premiere livestreaming platform!
I always have a problem with remembering what stats my various units have, and what exactly they can do. I don’t play as often as I’d like, so getting the practice in to learn my model’s abilities is a big issue for me. Plus, the layout of the Warhammer 40K
TEMPERATURE ALERT! Just a little Painting PSA (Public Service Announcement) 🙂 If you read nothing else on this post, just remember that warm paint will stick much easier to a warm painting surface than to a cold painting surface! If you want a bit of the ‘how’ and ‘why’, read on
There’s quite a lot to do in this step, really, including making sure the shoulders are strong enough to hold not only the arm weapons, but the top weapons as well. But it all comes together with some patience
With all the parts trimmed properly, it’s time to get washing! Warm, soaping water and a toothbrush (and a larger brush for the REALLY big pieces) is all you need to help the glue and paint stick to the surface of the model.
You might think this is a fairly simple step, and for most models it is! But this is the biggest resin model made by Forge World, so you know it’s not going to be simple! Watch along as we show you how to wash parts like a Fabricator General!
Because you have to buy the head for the Warlord separately (there are a couple different option heads), the head is included in the video as well.
This isn’t just an unboxing video – like all of our unboxings, this is more of a close-up look at the various model parts, checking for mold slips, flashing, holes and any other issues or problem areas we’ll need to go over before we start assembly.
Next step: cutting off all the casting gates and sprues!
