At the beginning of March 2005 on the blog I mentioned that GW were releasing a limited edition Witch Hunter model that would only be sold in the stores on the 2nd and 3rd April.
Well I didn’t think I was going to get one, but I was on my way over to Simon’s for a game of Space Hulk and stopped off at the GW store and picked one up.
It is a very nice model and is based on the Witch Hunter model that is available in the boxed set, but has a different weapon (plasma pistol) and is pointing rather than holding a sword. Personally I think it is a better model.
Now do I paint it, or do I keep it and sell it on eBay in a few years time (or does everyone do that).
Rules can be found in White Dwarf #304 for this model.
Here is the ‘Eavy Metal painted version of the model.
After much thought (well two and a half years) I decided that I would put together the model and paint it.
The casting comprises a single casting, but the model is in two parts.
The model goes together very easily.
Having flocked the base with Games Workshop modelling sand, I gave the model a white undercoat.
The rear view.
I then gave most of the model a basecoat of Desert Yellow.
Next stage was to paint the boots.
I put the model of Inquisitor Lorr aside for a few years, but when looking for something else I found him, I thought I might try and finish him off.
I will first touch up his base coat, I did use Desert Yellow, which is no longer available, so I checked the conversion chart and used Tallarn Sand instead, which is a pretty good match.
I painted his mechanical arm, main weapon and backpack with Leadbelcher. I also painted his waistcoat or jacket with Gorthor Brown.
