Well, I finally got one. I have been holding out, not on principal but just because I haven't seen a model I love and needed to have. However, that all changed this week. I was at the LGS and as much as I was fighting it, I got my hands on Trazyn the Infinite. He looks amazing. So, I grabbed him and couldn't wait to get him home. As I stood there, holding a new beautiful model, my phone rang.
He looks amazing. So, I grabbed him and couldn't wait to get him home. As I stood there, holding a new beautiful model, my phone rang. My daughter had fallen and she has a nasty bruise on her face. She is okay and upon getting home and consouling her, I was able to get the model started. First thing I noticed, the resin had a lot of flash. Now, being a 'veteran' hobbyist, flash is no big deal for me. It prolongs the joy of building a model. I got him all all together and will have some green stuff to use. Once the glue has fully cured, I will get to play with the Liquid Green Stuff and will my thoughts on that as well.
Now that he is all built, I only have one honest complaint. The resin is really soft. Just holding the staff in my hands, I am afraid it will snap off. Should GW read this, my only two cents is harder resin. I personally would much rather had a model break then bend. Did I get a good value on the model? Overall, it will not stop me from buying the few other Necrons I need in Fine Cast. Next post, I will have pictures of Trazyn all ready to be primed!
So, I got the liquid green stuff on him. There was only a small spot on his right shoulder that needed it as well as the part where his 'cloak' meets. I am still out on the liquid green stuff, it worked great on my FOW tanks but I think I have a lot to figure out about the product. For what it does, $4 is a good price.
Check back later this week to (hopefully) see Trazyn painted!
