Ultramarines Forge World Falchion Super Heavy Tank WIP part 1


Day 1 and 2 WIP photos.  All the sanding, cutting, smoothing and washing of the component parts has been completed.  My weathering has begun – the tracks have been given a light coating of sandy paste.  






The build was pretty good and the amount of resin release agent was very low so not too long spent scrubbing away with the toothbrush.  The tracks MUST MUST MUST be dry fitted first – even then I still made a couple of car crash errors with super glue that luckily I managed to rectify. 

Day 2 has seen all parts receive their Vallejo Grey undercoat and at least one base colour ready for the various other stages to come.  All the release agent is off and the paint went on perfectly this time – I had problems with the Glaive. 




The main body has been pre-shaded with black and white on the grey primer to create my greyscale highlight effect.  French blue to be applied tomorrow! HTB.

  1. Interesting to see some of the weathering effects take place prior to the priming. Very interesting. Thanks for documenting this. I recently got an airbrush and was planning on painting the sicarian (though a much smaller tank) using it.

I have painted something not blue for the first time in years!  These have come out very well and I had some real success using the Tamiya Clear plaints to get some great metallic finishes on some of the surfaces.  The Blue Sword effect Kenny uses on Next Level Painting worked a treat. I hadn't used P3 paints until he recommended them; they went into the airbrush no problem, giving some great results.

Forge World Scorpion Type II – Saim-Hann
With my first project under my belt, I dug out a Forge World kit that had been left under the bed for a good number of years.  I could not ge the smooth finish I wanted so parked the model to one side, but never came back to it.  All the practicing of pre-shading, zen highlighting and shading using the Falcon kits drove me to dig it out and get it done.  This will be more step by step but do ask questions below if you want something made clearer.  Again, Buypainted! gave a vast amount of guidance and inspiration - credit where credit is due!

1.The main hull was constructed, wing-lets, tail section etc.  The turret was also built however don’t do what I did initially and leave the pulsars sperate.  The crew and smaller weapons were mounted on old sprues to assist in painting.  The whole lot was primed us Vallejo Polyurethane Grey Primer – great stuff, and key to get the different shades of red later on.
2.I started with the base.  You cannot paint …

Get your Free Space Marines! Well sort of…. Space Marine Initial Ideas.

There are some really interesting new formations coming out of the new Space Marine Codex.Clearly some of the Chapter tactics, Librarian formations and the Land Raider ‘walls of death’ are drawing some attention.But look over the lowest common denominator at your peril.
The humble Marine and his workhorse transport have been and always will be at the core of your list and GW is ramming that home with the new Demi-Company.
