FW Heresy Era Mechanicum Magos

Absolutely awesome model, very detailed but be aware getting the large resin gate from the back of the trailing edge should be done with a cutting disc or saw as side cutters will very likely break something, like it did on mine *sigh* and also one of the 'vanes' on the rad cleaner barrel was so thin it actually snapped off during drybrushing....think i may just make another from green stuff as the original was an extremely thin piece of resin.

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.
