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!
New to resin models, or just need a guide to tools and techniques? Join us as we walk you through working with resin models in this handy guide, based on the Forge World Guide to Working with Resin Models! This is great information and Frank from Tiny Plastic Spacemen walks you through all the tools recommended by Forge World and how to use them, plus extra helpful tools that will make assembling your resin models easier.

Model painting group posts on Facebook can provide a lot of good inspiration while browsing and posting cat photos, and one of the posts in one of the groups asked where to find a decent painting tutorial for putting a galaxy paint scheme on a model.
It’s very simple, and requires a base coat of black, some purple, maybe some blue, some gold and thinned white paint. Stipple on the colors and spatter the white on by flicking brush bristles (or use a popsicle stick and an airbrush!) et voila! Galaxy paint scheme.
Get all the steps from the link above, or check back in the near future and I’ll be trying this same technique on some of my Harlequins models 🙂
We’re 2 shows into a busy spring & summer with Barwell Bodyworks, and it’s going to get more busy in the months ahead! So far this year Tiny Plastic Spacemen has appeared with Barwell Bodyworks at the Hammerhead show (check out the photo album here!) and the WMMS Alumwell game show,
