Hey all, following on the heel’s of the Verminlord that I showed a few days ago I bring Thanquol and Boneripper. Apocalypse also seems to be lurking in the background :). The new kit is quite complex for a model that looks quite simple. He took roughly several hours for me to put together, which for me is quite a long time as I’m usually quick doing these things.
The model has a lot of very small parts that are quite fiddly and all the hoses on his back and arms need to be connected to various other hoses. Personally I was quite tired by the end of assembly. So far I have just done some basic skin tones and have used Secret Weapons violet pigment for simple shading. Has anyone else picked this model up?
It's definitely nice model 🙂
The skin tones are looking nice so far. I'm just really hoping you try a different colour scheme for this guy. It's nothing personal, it's just that you're kind of defeating the object of painting different models by painting them all the same way (or at least VERY similar).
Yeah TEN, you really should change the unique artistic style you developed over years of hard work and creativity because the people of the internets said so.

Thanks for sharing your opinion, but considering you painted those godawful Tau a few posts back…I think I will ignore it 😉
Tom/Anon no point getting angry as Deet had a very good point, as well as being a very talented painter.
Tom, your embarrassing yourself. Either your joking or you need medication. Not good. Daniel
Its kind of astounding how complex GW plastic kits have become. I've recently done an Imperial knight and two Ogre Ironblasters….Both kits required quite a bit of forethought on how to approach both assembly and painting. The imperial knight was actually easier than the two ironblasters. The ironblasters just have a lot of complexity and surface that they really took a lot of time to assemble and paint. I embrace it though. The stuff that is coming out from GW is amazing…and I simply cannot wait for the upcoming Chaos dragon to finish off the end times series…
I completely agree. Quite a few of the recent models have left me lost for what to do next. Usually I figure it out sooner or later, but it really does slow down the process on assembly. Cant wait to see the Chaos Dragon as well. The other thing I've noticed is the frequency in model parts damaged, parts missing and instruction numbers being incorrect. But GW have always been top notch at replacing.
I actually have a question about that. In the past, I've requested new parts from GW and they've been pretty good about sending me replacement…as in, they just sent me an entire new box! LIke once I got a rhino without a hatch sprue so they just sent me a new rhino for free. Do they still do that sort of thing?
I've had that once actually with a finecast model, they gave me another one in store. Most times though I have noticed a problem early on when building and have brought it back for a new box. But they took the model. I'm guessing if you bought the model online they would send a new model as it would save the customer on having to waste time/money sending the model back.
Looking forward to your gritty take on this disgustingly lovable model.
And hey, is that Apocalypse from the X-men in the background?
That is Apocalypse indeed looking for his horsemen 🙂

I was tempted by it, but managed to satisfy my craving to paint a rat by painting one of the Ogres from the Island of Blood box.
