Any diluted pva should do you ok from what I have read. Been adding rivets and gluing rivets to everything including me and the dog. Now need to make more rivets but progressing along. Will add photos as I get further on.

Thank you, it’s coming together. Need another few batches of bolts making, someone on a fb group I am in suggested meng models rivets and bolts so might try those.

https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwiznKTSwJD0AhVBolwKHf19BN0QFnoECBwQAQ&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.co.uk%2FMENG-Model-Bolts-Large-Multi-Colour%2Fdp%2FB00DUQ7PVS&usg=AOvVaw22KI9_rxXqDwYVG4cpaRmW

I like the green stuff ones but it’s labour intensive for a project this size.

I am being weary too that Will have to paint all the detail I add so don’t want to shoot myself in the foot. I think adding detail to the inside areas like the pipes etc is a good way to stop it looking wooden. Simple but effective.

My only worry about using them is cutting them off the strip to apply them. Will update when I get them.

Looking great so far.

Have you tried using milliput in the river moulds, rather than green stuff? I have them as well, and found milliput much easier and faster to use with them.

I will have to get some. Curing time is the main problem with green stuff in them. And how sticky it is.

I have tried the meng ones linked above and they are great but the big ones are so hard to cut off the sprue. I have a couple of nasty cuts from using them so miliput will be tried while I heal!!

Milliput is sticker, but a bit of talcum powder on your hands and it handles fine. I find it much easier to get into the moulds, and to cut off the excess without pulling the putty out of the mould than I did with green stuff, and then rubbed it with a damp finger to smooth out the pull marks.

Thanks mate, ordered some to come for element games so should be here tomorrow. Talc is a good tip too. I know what you mean about pulling the pieces out of the mould when cutting excess off. I will update you the progress with it.

Ok, got some milliput. Great stuff. Weird but exactly like you said works much better in the moulds. And the talc was a top tip. So with this should hopefully be ready to put some paint on by the weekend. Things have been a bit slowed by my daughter getting covid (she’s fine but we she is trapped in the house). But will be gluing bolts on like mad from Wednesday. Then priming on the weekend.

Primed. Black will be the base, them I’m am going to preshade with grey up to near white in paces and also use a red/brown and them silver in places for priming the metallic areas.

I am thinking of this as a basic idea for the colour scheme. Any thoughts. Alternative is all red like my stompa. It has to be evil SUNZ, but as it is tribes ultimate idol to the gods clan colours might need to take a back seat a little.

Thanks for having a look. It’s an amazing kit. And sooooo big! I would recommend any of there mdf/Hdf kits. It’s like wizardry the detail they get into a thing made of flat pieces. But I now officially hate rivets.

Primed and pre shaded.

Used a car primer for the grey, and mournfang brown for the rust colours, all the arms and feet and all brown too for now.

Next stage will be to lay down the dark green on the hull and and some metallics.

"At the point in time when bullets can pass through the interdimensional walls. When firepower takes up the entirety and eternity of space and time, all beings stuck in a neverending life and death cycle as bullets recover and destroy their bodies in quick succession. No one is able to think about anything but the sheer force of the bullets rapidly flying literally everywhere in the materium turning the warp itself into nothing but a sea of semi-automatic weaponry.. Then there will be enough dakka. Or, at least almost." -The Glorious God Emperor of Mankind

Thanks for the comments folks, sorry progress is slow. Bear with me, I work for the ambulance service and as you can imagine it’s a busy time so it keeps getting in the way of hobby, very annoying!

Finally started with the head. Covid has made my job pretty busy since Christmas so not got much done. Started with persuading the under side areas with mournfang brown and snakebite leather. Then added Mephistopheles red over the top, highlight with evil SUNZ scarlet. Don’t want that “airbrush” look with highlights up to white and that just it’s so big I am using the airbrush to add texture and definition.

Then I marked out the metal parts, next up will be some markings, weathering and than a gloss varnish. Oil washes and streaking. not too much weathering mind.

Thanks guys. Sorry it took so long. Will do more tonight. While I have the airbrush out I’m going to work on the body next.

And don’t worry, I plan on some funky energy effects on the gaze or mork/gork.
