Right then, back to it! The Legs

Hello Everyone,

So I have an update for you all.

I've finally started gluing and pinning the legs. So far, I've learned to truly hate pinning. It does help, but it's a pain on such a large model. It is coming along quite nicely though.

I also did some test priming, to see what would be the best method. So far, the first method is working out great. I got some Krylon Matt Varnish and your Regular Chaos Black GW spray paint.

I used the Matt Varnish first, since it adheres better to resin than regular spray paint. I did about two light coats on each piece. It dries quite quickly, only takes about 15 minutes, once that was done, I sprayed the pieces with the Chaos Black spray paint.

After letting it dry over night, I went back to check how it turned out. After rubbing all the pieces, none of the primer came off. Success!

I learned things the hard way with my Greater Brass Scorpion, it was quite terrifying to see the paint peal off as I painted.

With that working out I went and tried it on several other pieces.

Since then I have pinned a few more parts around the pelvis/hip area. I just need to pin the toes, lower leg armor plates, and a couple of other things. I'll most likely have a larger update next week for everyone.



  1. Looking good on the legs there. And I'll definitely be checking out that priming method. It's new to me, but I'm all about trying new things.

    I try not to do this, but if you haven't seen it you should glance at my Titan Leg Assembly blog.

  2. Thanks!

    I had a bit of an accident with it, one of the feet came off when I was trying to pin the toes (Yeah, I'm kinda pinning everything now). Push a little to hard and pop, off went the foot.

    I'm not sure what you meant by your last comment there. Try not to do what? o.O

    I actually have been following your blog on how you did the assembly, its been a great help. I have learned to hate pinning though. :P

  3. I just meant I try not to hijack other folks blog with links to my own unless it's relevant.

    I think you're doing a great job, accidents like the toes will happen. Good luck and I look forward to your next blog!

  4. Great job, I know how much a pain pinning can be but its worth it.
