Any plans for kitbashing or converting or are we sticking with the vanilla models out of the bag/box?

Wow Semper. For a dress wearer your EC look great. Really nice purple.

I could never do an army in purple, but I am glad there are those who can, and to this standard.

Those palatine blades should come with a warning and real example of what they look like. The swords are just way too thin to ever really be used. Even when straight it will flex with no force at all. I'm going to swap mine for some plastic swords, Ive just not found a suitable donor model yet. I'm hoping the new dark elf executioner swords but think they may be too big.

I just realized the sergeant's entirely brown/rust base really clashes with the other jetbikers' grey&orange ones. Looks really odd. But the javelin is a mix of both.

 

Said land speeder looks awesome.

Thank you guys - your comments really drive me to see this one through! thanks.gif

 

@ Brother Melice & irwit: Hot water. A simple solution and very effective. In order to avoid melting the resin in even stranger shapes, I suggest dipping some piece of cloth or a tissue in the hot water and use it to reshape the bended part... It works - no more "spaghetti" blades (couldn't put it better myself :D):

@ Jasp: I think you do. And even faster than I if I may add!

 

@ Oli: Not big on conversions personally - ok I'm lousy at it. Thankfully the FW stuff are awesome enough straight out of the box, so that's a relief... :D

 

@ Forte: Thanks mate! You know, as long as the robes are not purple I can walk out of here in one piece...

 

@ furioso prime: wait until the DAs get some FW love... 1Q15 is it? Until then I plan to do two Traitor armies of 1,500pts each to match my grand DA project.

 

@ Knight of the Raven: I thought no one noticed! :D Truth is these are left over bases that I tought I'd mix - thankfully without glueing. Unfortunately the effect is indeed quite clashing, so yes, I did order new ones that are in the mail already...Nice catch KotR! hahaha!!!

 

I would like again to thank you all for cmmenting here - the Palatine Blades will be worked on next and then time for some troops - assault squads incoming... Undecided on the MKs still. :)

Really can't wait to see those blades painted up bro, once i've finished my Fist's I intend to do a 40k EC force, so i'll be watching this thread closely and bugging you about stuff from time to time I think. 

 

Top notch work so far mate. Keep em coming.

Those look amazing. How'd you prep them for paintings? Take it you do the pads and packs seperately.

@ Rhetoricus: Thx mate! I think the 40k EC are way more psychadelic! Good luck with them! hahaha :D

 

@ forte: well, first clean the flash and take care of the mould lines. Then wash them with soap in cold water and let them dry - like you have. Then I take the bended parts, and use really hot water the straighten them up. It's really easy - you can do this with large items too - like a Rhino side armour. After that I put them together - I will add the shoulder pads before I prime them and I will paint the jetpacks (from the Sang Guard box) seperately. I will glue them on their bases once they arrived. :)

That's cool, Cap. It's nice to see some 'unadulterated' models being showcased every now and then. ;)

Damn! That's really bad luck... what I did was to dip paper towel in the really hot (amost boiling) water and then gently rub it on the bended surfave while gently pushing it in the direction I wanted it to go. I had to repeat the process often since the water was cooling off. The result is satisfactory (although not perfect) and the process is fairly safe to avoid snapping the delicate resin...

 

If you dip the entire item into hot water you ran the risk of melting the resin and completely deforming the item.
