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!
Here’s an unboxing of the Mastodon superheavy assault transport from Forge World! This kit is BRAND NEW, JUST RELEASED and was the FIRST EVER Mastodon purchased, at the 2016 Forge World Open Day at Warhammer World in Nottingham, England!
OK, well not really (a visitor from Scandinavia was there much earlier than us but only because there was noise outside his hotel room and he couldn’t get back to sleep), but in order to be able to get one of the first Forge World Mastodon kits available for sale, Tiny Plastic Spacemen and friends were there…quite early!
Of course, this led to us having our most popular video of recent times get released a couple of days later: the Mastodon unboxing!
But before we could get that online, Forge World themselves beat us to the punch by featuring us in the opening of their Open Day video!
