Nope, this is not a vi@gr@ spam.

and don't worry, I'm perfectly healthy and functional, just so you wonder.

Spent some time to clean the mold line, assemble, and base the raptors, but today when I woke up, one big problem... they just don't... erect... and keep falling down...

While mine is resin finecast, it really keep me wondering : how folks make them stand when they are still cast in metal.

After some google, some putty work and 60 cents (or shall I say, sen) poorer, behold, they finally long lastingly ERECTED! (I hope so...)





On a side note... I'm always wondering another issue : actually how long does it take for me to paint *one* model, from base coat to fully painted... Tomorrow I will set a two hour and fifteen minute mark for myself to paint just one of these babies, let's see whether I can live blog this =___,=

At the same time, if things goes well, I shall upload it to the new 40kmalaysia forum for forum logo competition.

The painting time really varies. But overall, for a single miniature, I usually take 3 hours, if I take my own sweet time. I can finish an Ultramarine in 30 minutes provided if I make the wash dry faster and I also spend more time on making it look good.

About the model weight issue, what I did was buy some washers from the DIY store, and cut them in half, then glue them to the bottom of the bases.

I dont remember seeing anyone other than me playing Raptors.. yup.. they fall down quite often. And the worse part was when the flame stand got broken by the fall. Finecast wont have that problem i believe.

@Alvin : GAH! WASHER... Should've ask here earlier b4 I use the coin~_~

@Lord AK : The picture is dedicated to you, you are not alone.



Just when I thought I solved the erection problem... The failcast raptor champion took a face dive.

===============================
Started my shiok-sendiri-how-much-can-I-paint-in-2-hours challange.. it's an epic fail.

started on 1300 GMT


This is what it looks like on 1500 GMT






Meh.
Will finish it nonetheless for entering the logo competition.

- One (the Champion) was broken right where the flame connect to the feet --> Cannot be repaired. So I had to drill his ass and stuck a metal bar to support him.
- one almost broken into two right in the centre, luckily some work with super glue and greenstuff able to fix it.

Your champion.. Laughing Laughing Laughing That is a total failcast.

@Pax : Oh ya I remember your Raptors. I fought you once back in GC (it was two-three years back). In that game, your Black Legion (or was it Iron Warriors) beat my Raven Guard.

i think you gotta put a paperclip through that flame - to solve the failcast problem.

in other words: drill.

@LordAK : No wonder not much ppl field raptors... It require tons of maintenance =p But it's cool model nonetheless.

My champion was standing straight before I glued on the syling, but keep falling down, after I glued on the coin and thought it will be doing fine, it succumb to the gravity and bent the flame~_~

@Dann: Yup, thank goodness I invested on a drill months earlier... But I'm abit affraid of breaking the flame to pieces, the resin is kinda fragile (it felt a bit like candle wax, actually), I almost break the bolt pistol when I try to drill hole on them... I guess I will give it a shot, but if I fail, I will modify the base to something similiar to Raptor Lord

as another suggestion, use green stuff or green stuff paint.

Build up the flames, and let the green stuff harden before you stand the model up. The GS should be hard enough to support the model.

Yup pin the model with a paperclip and gs some flames. I know it's some work but that is the only workaround to the finecast problem.

Thanks folks, I guess I will scrap off the current flame and replace it by a pin/rod, then resculpt the flame, or barring that, sacrifice a chaos glory icon n make him stand on the icon.

Vuel, total points cost is too general to be infringing anything, it can go as far stating total cost for a unit without specifying any costs such as wargears or upgrades. That is what I usually see in other forums.

Specific costs like wargears costing X or base point for this unit is Y are the ones that should not be stated.
