Funny enough they got delivered bout an hour ago. I just opened it. The quality is like a solid 95%. Few extra mold lines, and a few cracks and a break or two from 30 days of shipping in a lousy box. But being that I play orks I'm going to chopping stuff anyhow lol. Everything I got was a newer plastic model except for 1 old fantasy warboss on a boar.

The pewter recast has alot of super fine extra flashing.

But for $48 a full knight castellian looks great. 20191130_093715.jpg

Super crisp and clean dude. It's looking really good already. Any specific plans for the base yet? Flying/hovering can do such crazy cool stuff sometimes
Ohh very good question. I honestly hadn't thought about the hover thing on the base. Hmm. I'll look around and see what I can find.

Wow I just looked up a knight castellian. That's insane for under 50 bucks. Nice find!

Those are really cool looking. Do you have a place to display these? I'm trying to figure something more permanent out for mine.

My current progress... a handful more Stormcast are base coated... I'm gonna work on the big guy in the box next I think!

I don’t have anywhere good really. I just rotate models around in my hobby room on a couple different shelves.

Your figures look good, you’ve improved a lot over the last couple months. You should start looking into filling your gaps from assembly. The flashing and gaps are detracting from your paint jobs now. Those shoulder pads >< Liquid Green Stuff is what I use. There’s some other stuff out there I’ve never tried, miliput and that ‘As Seen on TV’ UV glue.

There are a number of things you can use to fill seams and gaps but I haven't had the need to when I build GW models so I have no experience with it. That said in the model plane world most seams are filled with something like tamiya white putty or thick superglue

For the old Gw pewter models I'd use green stuff. Even for some resin and plastic ones I use green stuff as well for really making nice joints on the models that are a big focal point. I even use it when changing angles on arms to remake a bicep or tricep. Or when cutting off legs to change then into running legs

I bought a shades of green set from them. I like the colors but the consistency is so fuckin weird I am not able to use it like all of my other brands. It’s like chalky, or lumpy, idk how to describe it. It kind of smears and is uneven and brush strokes show up really easily. It’s great for dry brushing though so that’s really all I use it for. Will never buy any again because other brands work for dry brushing as well and I’d rather have my paints serve all the purposes I need.

Funny you mention it, I did buy some greenstuff after seeing that gap in his shoulder armor hah. Well the Amazon brand equivalent. I'll see how it goes. If not I'll buy the greenstuff from their site.

I've never tried Scale 75 personally. They do sell them in the hobby shop by me though I think. I usually get stuff from MiniatureMarket. I just got a new batch of citadel and reaper paint today. Someone stop me! :)
