I’m back on the Seraphon this weekend as I try to clear some room on the ‘Shelf of Shame’ before the Kill Team: Octarius boxed set is delivered.
Assembling & Painting
I don’t have a great deal new to say about this one, as I’ve used exactly the same assembling and painting technique that I detailed in my Terradon Rider Alpha post. It’s still the two ‘0805 Chip LED’ 3V yellow LEDs from Small Scale Lights connected in parallel on a single 3V CR2032 battery to create the effect. If you’d like to know more details, then please do read the previous post for assembly instructions and paint recipe. The only real difference this time is that the skink’s right hand pinged off into whichever part of the warp dropped model components lurk in, so I had to sculpt a replacement from putty!
Actually, one tip I will add is that I’ve found it easiest to approach this particular build if you assemble the model in the order that the wire runs through, starting with the sunfire bolas, going onto the skink, then the terradon, and finally the base. The instructions tell you to start with the terradon, which would make sense normally, but in this case it leaves you second-guessing where the wires are going to end up. So if you’re trying to replicate this, I strongly recommend starting with the bolas and the skink!
That’s all for today, I’ll be back again soon with some Octarius action – delivery services willing!
