Colour Our World Brackened!

Experimenting on a base with GW's new "Barbed Bracken" and "Creeping Vines" kits.
Great stuff, but the paint doesn't spread and adhere well on the plastic which is softer than the usual GW plastic.

You can bend the vines using a hair drier. That's what I did, so I glued the vines unprimed. But then it was quite difficult to make the white paint stick to the plastic.

My advice is:

1. Wash the plastic with soap.
2. Bend the vines with a hair drier
3. Prime.
4. Glue and paint.

14th survivor: Shadow

Anima Tactics' Shadow (metal, by ???)

This one really has a Kingdom Death similitude. Doesn't he look like the Twilight Knight's brother?

Baron Zemo

No, actually it's not Marvel's Baron Zemo but Kingdom Death's The King's Hand (plastic, by Thomas David?)

Arachnarok Lurking in the Shadows

GW's Arachnarok (plastic, by Colin Grayson, Alex Hedström and Aly Morrison)

This was done for my son's Greenskinz army. The base is made with polystyrene and false plants from IKEA.

I have made it modular so both versions can be used, with the grot chaman, or with the spider-ball catapult.

I bought that piece in the British Museum last year.
