Another day, another contest

Written by  on October 8, 2015 

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.

    Sigh, this all led to dinner at 9:30 and an unsupervised dog that ate all the cat food.
