With Forgeworld starting to sell models again, how soon do you think until we can order The Lion?

I know I'll be getting one, but I'm not sure about the scenic base because I want to field it.

But I'm also really nervous because I haven't worked with resin much, and I think this will be my first FW model.

I think it will be available within a few weeks, since it was shown as 'coming soon' in the article.

The scenic bases for the primarchs are usually built in a way where the primarch is detachable from the scenic base on a normal base so you can store him in that in your display case and then take him off when you are playing.

I have a couple of friends who have picked up some of the other primarchs.

 

They said that the Russ and Magnus base was kinda like a movement tray, where the models just rest in there, and you can pluck them out for games.

 

However ones like Guliman and Sangunius have an extra piece on the scenic base that locks the the model in place.  They also said if you put a plastic base under the character then they will be to tall to fit into the scenic base.

So, whoever told you that the plastic bases under the character will make them too tall to fit into the scenic base is a dirty liar :lol:

I've built two Primarchs with their full scenic base (technically three, but the Perturabo I have isn't attached to his), and both fit in properly.

Spoiler

 

I mean.... The 40mm they attach to is designed to slot into their scenic base, so I don't know why it wouldn't work? :lol:

You should be able to slot the base in, the kit is designed for that. The piece that locks it in is usually magnetized by folks. FW does it this way because the scenic base is not designed for gaming.

This is what I plan on doing with the Lion kit, since I want to be able to use him with my HH DA.

Oh man, doing a Primarch as your first FW-model! You're a brave man, good luck!

Yeah, a Primarch model is a tough one to do as your first FW model, especially if you haven't done resin yet. Perhaps it might be worth it to get something else with the Lion to practice on first? You could grab something like one of the DA praetors.

The Terninator Praetor was a lot of fun, not too bad a clean up a d pretty forgiving to paint especially with contrast. Highly recommend as a good entry point and companion to the Lion

A contemptor might be a better companion. Closer in size and detail to the Lion than the praetor. You don't gain much experience from the Praetor, that model is way too forgiving to learn the ways of the resin.

I mean... I'm planning on getting two. One for my "Primarchs Display" and one as a gaming model. :yes:

Total madlad :lol:

Don't stress about the resin. My first FW models were Angron and Fulgrim and they weren't a problem. I've since built about a third of the character series and the most difficult part has been interpreting the assembly instructions. You'll be fine!
