Primaris Reiver and New LED Muzzle Flare Tutorial

Reiver 01

In a change of pace from my Intercessors, here’s my first Crimson Fist Primaris Reiver. I’ve had the concept of the model in my head since 2017 when the PCRC bought me the Reiver box and the Aggressor box for my birthday. So it’s good to finally get this model out of my imagination and into the real world!

I wanted to give the impression of an intimidating killer; someone who is taking down enemies with short controlled bursts from his bolt carbine before confidently striding forward towards his next target. Hopefully I’ve managed to get that across!

As I was working on this model I also took a lot of work-in-progress images to finally put together my LED muzzle flare tutorial, which you can now find on my tutorials page if you feel like having a go yourself. This is a bit of an extended tutorial, as I specifically cover the casting of the resin muzzle flare as well as the electronics aspect.

I’ve recently gained a new LED supplier – Small Scale Lights. If you’re at all interested in using LEDs in miniatures then you should check out this supplier. They have a great range and excellent customer service.

Here’s a comparison shot with the LEDs turned off, so you can see what the model looks like under normal lighting conditions.

And of course, I can never resist a quick improvised diorama!

TARGET ELIMINATED! ADVANCING.

That’s it for today. Don’t forget to check out the new tutorial. I’ll be back again soon with more Crimson Fists. Hopefully I can get the rest of the Reiver squad out of my head too! Remember, you can always catch me on Instagram or Twitter in the meantime.
