Forge World Epic Ruined Librarium
I recently purchased the Epic Ruined Librarium from Forge World.
Partly as I like the model and partly as it would seem that Forge World are deleting their Epic scenery. You can no longer get the Cathedral or the Tank Factory for example.
One of the key things you need to do with virtually all Forge World models is to give them a good wash.
When the Forge World models are cast, the mould is given a spray (I guess) of some kind of lubricant to allow the cast model to be released from the mould easily.
However the lubricant also acts as a barrier to paint, so as happened with previous models I (and others) have painted is that the paint flecks off.
Washing the model in water with a drop of washing up liquid should remove the lubricant.
Avoid using hot water as this could warp the resin (a useful tip if you need to warped resin back to its original shape).
Once washed the model is then ready for painting.
I decided to give the model a black undercoat using Citadel Chaos Black spray paint.
This is the other side view.
I purchased a Forge World Epic Ruined Librarium some time ago, and despite undercoating it I hadn't touched it for a while. For some reason I decided to try and finish it. First stage following the black undercoat was to give it a heavy drybrush of Codex Grey.
This covered most of the model.
Next stage was to drybrush with a lighter gray, Fortress Grey.
