I had the old nightbringer metal model and it was just a pain to paint and assemble.
Almost bought the resin one yesterday thinking "how bad could it be?".
I'd rather find a decent proxy to be honest.
Any other ideas would be appreciated.
I was lucky recently and snagged a Nightbringer from the GW webstore start of December. It took weeks to ship, and I figured it'd be canceled as an error or something so was looking on ebay. They had a Nightbringer that closed at $230!
So GW shipped mine, I looked at the model and it's just such a bad model. So I sold it on ebay for $100ish. Pictures of just the box seem to sell for higher than pictures of the bad resin model...
Anyway, my Nightbringer will be a modified Umbra Samaritan from Infinity. It's metal, but I'm okay with that. Based it on a 40mm and cut a Scythe from some other model, now deciding how to Necron-ize it.
Likewise, the GW Deceiver model sucks, so I'm using the Cthulhu Wars King in Yellow, also Necron-ized:
Haven't actually finished either one though, too many other things on the plate.
