Hehe I have a set waiting in its box, to be painted and played as well - lovely set! Can't wait to see how yours turns out.

I didn't have too much of a problem with the kit (yes I had two boxes) for my HH guys tho. I agree about the bolters tho! hate those mold lines. And to drill them I had to push in a pointy bit, to start the small drill, and then use a larger drill after drilling a pilot hole. Quite a few steps tbh.

Otherwise no problem but then I'm used to Malifaux now...

How are you going to do the metallic red? Wondering because I've had a horrible time not leaving brushstrokes when doing something simliar :(

ooooh yeah! totally worth it.

I agree with the airbrushing - I've not tried it yet myself but it looks like the only way to go!

Lovely work! can't wait to see how the rest turn out

what if you tried to do a gloss coat over it first? I mean the parts that need to be repainted another colour?

I love your Pre Heresy Thousand Sons mate! It sounds that your technique for making the red shine is a total success! Your Eldars also look promising. :)
