Re: Tuatara and his Iron Warriors - March Done

March done. Never realised just how excellent this challenge would be to keep me on target. I have an Imperial Knight, a Tempestus Firebase and an Avenger to build and paint, yet I am staying with this. Cool.

And here is my April commitment. Given I have a bit of travel, it will be a challenge, but that's why it's called a "Hobby Progress Challenge" :lol:

By the way, any advice on painting hazard stripes would be much appreciated. Not sure I have the patience to mask them on such small parts, but if I have to I will. Is there a better way?

That hellbrute looks fantastic! All that flesh on that thing looks fresh, like it just grew recently to accommodate the thing itself and is still bothered and red.

I was also struck (like others) by your handwriting, which is amazing! And I totally agree with an earlier post about you engraving something on your model(s), that would be way cool.

Thank you for the kind words. It was what I was going for on the Hellbrute.

You march unit looks great. I have always been leery about using other units like Beverley's in a "normal" unit. However, I see you have pulled it off and that leads me down a path I'm going to try. Great thread and the dread looks awesome.

I have to say, this HPC is really making sure I stay focussed. Really appreciate it.

Anyway, squad two done, the shooty one. May will see 3 Obliterators and my Warp Smith. As I have a lot of travel coming up for the moth, just getting four models done will indeed prove a challenge. In the meantime, hints and suggestions are welcome.

Thanks Jakartor.

Now working on my Obliterators (almost built) and completed the building of the Warpsmith. I love this model, but it was difficult to put together. Probably using the wrong superglue, but I would put a piece on and then have to leave it for about 20 minutes while the glue set. Had to use paint pots and other models to support the mechadendrites in the right position while he glue set. Ironically, it was the Grey Knight Terminators that were best suited for the task :lol:
