This will be a sort post as I will try and use this as a step by step process. First step is base coat.
This first step is not the most exciting but rather important. I took the strange grey, resin plastic and stuck it to the base. I will be honest to say I wasn't sure if I should cut off the base or not (leave a comment below), this time I kept it on but I'm really not sure on it. Then I base coated in grey and sanded the base for now. Once the grey was dry I used a GW contrast Black Templar paint and applied over the whole model. You can see the result and it has now given me a great base to work off. Step two which I hope to post next week will be me blocking the non black areas in white before moving on the yellow sections ie. Shoulder pads, chain, badge and the belt buckle.
Is anyone who reads this playing the game or planning to pick this up? I would love to hear from you.
