One of the key things you need to do with virtually all Forgeworld models is to give them a good wash.
When the Forgeworld 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.
One of the purchases I made at GamesDay 2005 and then was hijacked by my wife for a Christmas present for me (!) was the Forge World Warhammer Cottage. Here is the painted model from Forge World.
I do like the models that Simon Harris has sculptured for Forge World and this is a nice model.
It comprises three components, the house and two roof parts.
I also think it is very good value (compared to other Forge World models) as it only cost £15.00 at the time of purchase.
