Other than these minor mishaps, a pleasure to assemble, not too much cleaning of mould lines to be done, just a bit here and there then glued to the base and ready for undercoat.
I chose my usual black spray undercoat, as a large proportion of this model will be metallic of various types, with the robes being the largest chunk of non-metallic (red of course) colour.
As the metallic area's are in the majority I started here by drybrushing them all with Tin Bitz (Warplock Bronze) then a wash of Devlan Mud (Agrax Earthshade). Once dried I followed this up by drybrushing with Boltgun Metal (Leadbelcher) this results in a quite nice brushed steel look I think.
The robes were then base coated in Scab Red (Khorne Red), given a heavy wash of Devlan Mud (Agrax Earthshade) and once dried raised areas were picked back out in Scab Red (Khorne Red)
**Seriously GW, who the hell thought up these new names??
Here's some early pics I took at around about this stage.
