Oh my!!! Sicarian Duststalkers. I love the models, but are they a nightmare to work with due to how fragile they are.
Holding them and painting them has to be the biggest Citadel minature sweat inducing nightmare. Literally one bad move and those power weapons will go snap. I can honestly say out of the entire Citadel range Sicarian Duststalkers are the most fragile models I have ever come across. On a different note when painting I tend to leave the backpacks off to make things easier. Once again I used Comm art airbrush colours as the red’s are really vibrant. I’m really digging this paint range as it’s a different approach to the Vallejo colours that I normally use. What do you guys think? Do you find certain model’s too fragile?
The Ironstrider/Dragoons are extremely fragile as well.
Agree entirely here. The models are a nightmare for fragility and will provide a transport nightmare in regular foam cases. Lots of bits to break, and the attachment to bases easy to break. Talking of bases, these here are awesome!
I guess you just have to be really careful with them, but can imagine travelling with them would be a bit of a nightmare.
