Another day, another contest
I stopped by Emerald City today to purchase my miniature for their painting contest. It is sponsored by Peachstate Hobby Distribution. I found out about it the day before sign up ended so it was a close one.
Nick tried valiantly to convince me to buy the Skaven Stormfiends. I opted for a Skaven Grey Seer. I’m just not a huge fan of the technology aspect of the Stormfiends. They are awesome looking but maybe for a later date.
Here is the miniature in its package:
Opening it up and examining the sprue:
Clipping it apart:
Assembled and primed:
This guy is a bit tedious to assemble. It is a normal humanoid-sized 25mm figure and it is eight pieces! The right hand is a separate piece. Yes, it has a bad-ass rat standing on it but come on…
I actually attempted to paint on the white Stynylrez and it didn’t seem to go on well so I immediately washed it off and switched to trusty, old Krylon. Now to paint this guy up like the ones from my Island of Blood boxed set.
