Work has been eating up my hobby time over the last couple weeks but I did manage to get through a couple more steps on the Longbeards. Above you can see how I most recently was playing with various patterns (and soon colors) for the shields.
Since my last update I finished up the assembly line gold trim on the unit with the Auric Armour Gold. There is still some to do on the command but mostly in areas I need to paint behind first.
And the final step on the armor, unit wide, was the Runefang Steel. Really makes them nice and shiny 🙂
Just wanted to ask the same question 🙂
I plan on touching up the edges once I glue the shields on. Really at this point there is no reason for me to still work on the sprue. Only did so to make painting the areas behind the shields that show (like the beards) a bit easier to work.
Those shields look fantastic, these are coming along nicely.

The crispness of the shield patterns are impressive and I like the idea of painting them on the sprue, but aren't you worried about the edge matching once you cut them off and do touch ups?
