Update:

I finished the assembly of my Dark Mechanicus Daemon Prince, adding some more wires and some cardboard from a battleforce box (I found this works in place of plasticard) as per suggestion by Dez. I really like the way it turned out and I'm looking forward to painting it.

Note: Any stringy stuff on the model is hot glue, haven't had the time to peel it away yet. I build all of my large models with hot glue.

I also painted the basecoat for the armor and skin of my cultists.

Opinions?

@The Houndmaster- I'll take that as a compliment... thanks!!!

On another note, I haven't done anything wargaming related for about 3 months, and quite frankly, I wasn't sure I was going to come back. I still don't think I'll ever completely return to the hobby in full force, but I'll still pop in every so often.

Until then, I just want to say everyone I've associated on this forum is completely awesome and I thank them all so much for any compliments and constructive criticisms you guys have given me along the short time I've been on here.

So, until next time, cheers,

That is the most bizarre, epic daemon prince I've ever seen and it not even painted yet! You get a big gold star for creativity on that one. I like that you included some of the sand. What are your plans for painting it? Scabs? Dirt? Boils? Crusties?

Thanks Shas-Woody, and as for your question... erm... I may have dropped it an it may or may not have shattered into a bajillion irreparable pieces... Quite unfortunate as I had painted on all of those disgusting features you mentioned. I'll probably get around to fixing it sooner or later when I get some time.
