Shadows on the Killa Kans

Having given the Killa Kans a white undercoat, the next stage was to add shadows by spraying a black paint undercoat underneath the model.

The aim of this was that when I painted the base coat on to the models the black undercoat would “catch” any part of the base coat spray that missed and add shadows to the model.

I did add a little more black spray to the rear for the engines.

Undercoating the Killa Kans

I wanted to use a two colour undercoat for the Killa Kans. The first was a complete white undercoat.

This I hope will allow the base coat to adhere to the plastic model. The white really does bring out the detail in these models (compare to the plain plastic pictures).

This is the Killa Kan with the Rokkit Launcha and here is the rear view.

This is the Killa Kan with the Grotzooka.

This is the Killa Kan with Skorcha.

More soon.

Making the Killa Kans

The instructions for the Killa Kans are very clear and straightforward, even so there are additional instructions available online on the GW website.

I decided to make mine up as they were on the sprues. It’s not quite one per sprue, but near enough. If I decide to buy another set I will then mix and interchange the parts (and┬ápossibly┬ádo some conversions).

The first I made up with a Rokkit Launcha, and putting the weapon was probably the most difficult bit of all three models as I didn’t really read the instructions properly and didn’t realise that there was a third component that needed to fit between the two sides of the weapon.

The second one I added a Skorcha. I do think some of the assault arms are a bit big for the size of model and I think I would have preferred it if they were a little smaller. Maybe next time a little conversion work to make the assault weapon arms slightly less large!

The third model has the Grotzooka. A few issues putting the weapon together, but apart from that the rest of the model went together really easily.

These are really nice models and go together quite easily. In many ways I much prefer them over the older metal versions.

More soon.
